At some point in our lives, you’ve probably voted for our favorite contestant in some competition or reality show. While not necessarily understanding how the voting system works, you still voted anyway because the idea of supporting that person was your top priority.

Fast forward to the present, a lot of anomalies have risen about voting systems being controlled by producers and not really being presented the honest results. Today, at the back of the viewers’ minds, there’s this constant doubt that the results may be rigged by politics in the show.


Lucky for us, blockchain technology has a way to counter that. Blockchain is vital for added transparency, and Fight to Fame will be using this technology for its voting system.

How Blockchain Works

Being a relatively new concept to the world, a lot of people still don’t understand how blockchain technology really works. Most people have probably heard about cryptocurrencies, more specifically the ever-popular Bitcoin – which we can credit much of blockchain’s fame to.

While it’s the more popular application, cryptocurrencies are just a form of how blockchain can be used and there are still other applications that prove to be useful for several industries. A lot of developers are looking for applications that might be breakthroughs for their industry.

Ever since it was first released years ago, blockchain technology has always instilled the notion that it promotes trust and transparency among its users. These are two issues that have long plagued several industries – including the entertainment industry.

With blockchain, there’s a guarantee that these issues won’t ever surface. In the simplest sense, the technology itself is a digital ledger – which is a chain and not central storage – that relies on peer-to-peer verification, processing, and recording. Whatever the transaction is, it can exist in millions of nodes that won’t easily be erased nor corrupted. Compared to previous technology, blockchain banks on the idea that there’s never central storage of information but millions which make it incredibly transparent to those who are part of the chain.

Given the importance of transparency for blockchain technology, it’s quite understandable how big industries – financial institutions – are looking into how they can incorporate it into their systems. This is just one of its many applications, but it’s already been changing how the game is played for several industries. Who knows what other revolutionary applications it’ll bring to the world in the future.

Blockchain Applied to the Fight to Fame Show

Reality shows, over the years, have cultivated skepticism about their voting systems. Voting frauds have been exposed and people are now doubtful about how these systems actually work.

Of course, viewers won’t really know the real results unless they investigate them but what the show’s production chooses to show is basically what the public gets. So if the results were rigged, viewers won’t really know, right?

As discussed in the previous section, blockchain technology guarantees the kind of transparency viewers are looking from reality shows. With the show’s unique business model that banks on blockchain technology to support several functions, gaining trust won’t be a problem.

Being a reality show, viewers can buy Fight to Fame Action Star Championship Series cards, the show’s very own cryptocurrency, to support their favorite candidates. The show’s tokens give viewers VIP access to exclusive events and will let them place their bets on their favorite contestants without really worrying if their money will go to waste or not.

Unlike other reality shows, the decentralized voting system uses blockchain technology, through its cryptocurrency, to innately promote transparency. This technology is extremely difficult to rig which is why voters can guarantee that the results they see are the real results. As a show that gives the average person a chance to stardom, this transparency is indeed vital to holding the public’s interest. During crucial assessment episodes, the public will be at the edge of their seats, voting for their bet.

Knowing that there’s no way the voting system can be rigged will have people working twice as hard to guarantee that their bet will win which makes the public even more invested in the show. This kind of engagement will not only propel the show’s popularity, but also the contestants’.

Children playing ringa ringa roses in an open backyard in England

Great historic events that have shaped the world and changed the outlines of countries are often not recorded in memory, or so we think. Wars made sure to destroy evidence and heritage, and the ones who survived told the tale of what really happened. Folklore, albeit through oral tradition kept alive many such stories, hidden in verse, limericks, and rhymes.

Ringa-ringa-roses, a common playtime rhyme among children across the world, is an example of folklore that has survived for many centuries. It tells the story of the The Great Plague of London which ravaged the city between 1665-1666.

Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.

In modern times, many social movements aim to bring reform to the society we live in, on the basis of certain existing patterns. Patriarchy is something that many aim to cleanse our cultures of, to usher in the era of social and gender equality. Despite all these so-called movements, in southern India, certain societies that patronise matriarchy have existed since before India's independence. The Nairs and Ezhavas of Kerala, and Bunts and Billavas of Karnataka are matrilineal societies that continue to thrive in a patriarchal country.

Kerala remains separate from the rest of India in many ways. Be it literacy policy, form of government, or cultural practices, this state does not always conform to the ideal that India is known for. Even so with their social structure. Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.
