Hey CTPiX family,

the creators of Germany’s most popular science and documentary series Welt der Wunder made headlines this year with their plunge into the blockchain space. CEO and founder Hendrik Hey and his team at Welt der Wunder TV are developing a completely new blockchain-managed license, trading and sales platform as well as MILC, the platform's native cryptocurrency. Their aim is to connect international broadcasters, VOD and online video producers with a $500 billion global market of purchasers and advertisers, all while funding a series of innovative film projects.
