The paper examines how blockchain technology is disrupting business models for new venture finance.

The role of blockchain technology in the evolution of new business models to monetize the creative economy is explored, by means of a case study approach. The focus is on the recorded music industry, which is in the vanguard of new forms of intermediation and financialization. There is a particular focus on emerging artists.

The paper provides novel case study insights and concludes by considering how further research can contribute to building a theory of technology-driven business models which apply to the development on the one hand to new forms of financial intermediaries, more correctly referred to as ‘infomediaries’, and on the other hand to new forms of direct monetization by artists.
