Before the spread of COVID-19 in 2019, movie sales around the world raked in over $45 billion. As cinemas shut down across the country due to the pandemic, in 2020, the US market decreased 65.7% from $11.4 billion to $3.9 billion.
Since the pandemic has eased and people have adapted to a new normal, the global movie market has slowly begun to bounce back. With the industry booming again, the pandemic has changed the way the entertainment industry operates. Entertainment streaming platforms, such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video have become increasingly popular. These platforms not only offer convenience and a multitude of options to users but also encourage independent filmmakers to submit their projects and ideas, giving them a chance at the once monopolized entertainment industry.
As blockchain continues to make its mark on the financial world, more companies are moving towards decentralized technology to increase their financial security and transparency. However, the decentralized solution to the ongoing problem had yet to be introduced to the filmmaking industry.
Decentralizing the Film Industry
Built on blockchain technology, MovieBiz Coin aims to decentralize the current film industry. The platform encourages producers, directors, and all players involved in the movie-making business with more opportunities to grow, raise capital and establish their projects, therefore giving them an open door to showcasing their talent while giving investors opportunities to enter the movie industry.
Specifically, using crowdfunding technology, producers can tokenize their films by leveraging the MovieBiz Coin platform. The platform is also disrupting other parts of the film space, with its independent movie booking service called BookingCandy.
BookingCandy allows users to book tickets at local cinemas through their smartphones using blockchain technology. With the smart contract capability, retailers are ensured that their tickets are encrypted and can only be sold at face value, preventing ticket scalping.
MovieBiz Coin was created to support independent filmmakers, allowing them to create and showcase content, raise funds, and reach a trusted global community of film enthusiasts. Through their native $MBZ token, MovieBiz Coin aims to use its technology to invest in films and artists worldwide.
The advantages of having a decentralized platform allow MovieBiz Coin to confidently move headfirst into large and diverse markets, attracting film-making advocates all around the globe. MovieBiz Coin is a revolutionary step forward for the film industry, inspiring unconventional movie talents to access a slew of projects that, thanks to blockchain technology, are sure to enrich people’s lives with content that captivates and entertains.
“Most people don’t have the opportunity to invest in the movie industry and the main investors [are] people from the movie world. We [want to] change the way the movie industry works while making it possible for anyone to invest and make profits by investing in movies,” the company has stated on its website.

After Raising $5.3 Million, Astra Guild Ventures (AGV) Gears for Series B & Public Token Sale
Astra Guild Ventures (AGV) has successfully raised $3 million for its Series A funding round led by some notable venture capitalists such as CSP DAO Inc, Halvings Capital Ltd, Oracles Investment Group, GDA Capital and Deltahub Capital.
The raised funds will be used for marketing AGV’s public token sale, covering operational and management expenses, and for the acquisition of new nonfungible tokens (NFTs) and equities on companies that develop play-to-earn (P2E) games.
At the time of writing, AGV has raised a total of $5.3 million after its Seed and Series A funding rounds. They have a total of 2,036 Axie Infinity scholars, 50,000+ Discord community members and 75,000+ Facebook followers. Recently, AGV has invested $800K in BMG, a Florida-based gaming studio behind the play-to-earn NFT games Kart Racing League and Realms of Ethernity (ROE).
AGV Series B and public sale
AGV is set to launch its Series B, or private token sale, on its website on November 17, 2021 at 2 pm UTC, and its public token sale on December 17, 2021. AGV has been audited by Certik.
What is Astra Guild Ventures (AGV)
Astra Guild Ventures (AGV) is a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) that invests in NFTs, P2E games and other blockchain projects. The DAO aims to build a global community of investors, tech leaders, NFT and blockchain enthusiasts and P2E players.
AGV boasts itself as the first DAO and NFT gaming guild that completely discloses its real-time earnings through its earnings dashboard and has a completely verifiable and publicly available list of assets.
AGV will also be launching its DAO Governance Board where AGV holders are able to propose and vote changes on the DAO’s rules and decisions. This makes AGV one of the first NFT gaming guilds to fully launch a decentralized platform.
Transparency and growth: Driving reasons for investments in AGV
With a lot of projects launching in the blockchain and crypto space, finding the right project to invest in is difficult — this is exactly what the AGV investors realized and what made them trust AGV. The transparency features that AGV meticulously integrated into its operations as a DAO was one main turning point.
Astra Guild has its own earnings and governance dashboard integrated together to provide a one-stop platform to AGV holders where they participate and decide for the DAO and view their investment status. The rapid growth of the Astra Guild community has also been a factor, in just three months Astra Guild’s membership blew up to 51,000+ members, hailing it as one of the fastest-growing NFT gaming guilds in the world — clear evidence that the NFT and blockchain market is on the rise.
