sponsored Overseas sales for Japanese anime are rising, but revenues for creators are stagnant. A startup is embracing blockchain to help the culture survive and grow. A Japan-based blockchain platform says the country’s beloved anime industry is at an impasse.

They can’t relate to the fans anymore.” Complicated dynamics and interactions between brand sponsorships, the media, and commercial relationships, have generated a situation in which who has control over those, controls the entire space, according to Forbes. That’s the case, according to the article, because sponsorships bring legal terms and condi..
