BitMovio’s mission is to bring a Fortnite-style gamified experience to video entertainment. The platform aims to fundamentally change how content creators, viewers, and financiers participate, interact, and engage within the video content ecosystem. Since launched its open beta in early 2019, BitMovio has attracted more than 1,000 creator channels on the platform with more than 7,000 hours of content uploaded.
BitMovio recently launched its equity crowdfunding on Netcapital and invites all global supporters to contribute while participating in its mission to redefine the video streaming market. Angel investors, partners, content creators, and fans can support the platform’s mission by pledging with as little as $100. Those who pledge before December 31, 2019 will also receive 20% worth of bonus tokens.
Featuring a freemium revenue model, BitMovio is a blockchain-enabled, gamified video entertainment platform built for the Fortnite generation. Democratizing investment in early stage companies is consistent with BitMovio’s core values as it allows anyone to invest in the company’s success and become brand ambassadors to help grow its community and advocate for its mission. The platform will use its crowdfunding resources to continue to bridge blockchain and the video entertainment free marketplace.
BitMovio announced a new partnership with Singapore Management University’s Business Innovations Generator (SMU BIG). This is part of the company’s continuing efforts to capture the rapidly growing entertainment and blockchain industry in Asia, particularly in Southeast Asia. SMU BIG is hosted by SMU’s Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
To continue to enhance its hybrid video streaming infrastructure and gamified video streaming experience, BitMovio partners with world-class players in the ecosystem for product and community development.
BitMovio is in the process of integrating with ecosystem partner Theta’s Decentralized Content Delivery Network infrastructure. This will also allow the platform to access to Theta’s multi-million-strong community of users. BitMovio anticipates that the Beta version will be online by the end of December 2019 or early January 2020 at the latest.
BitMovio has announced that it is in the process of finalizing partnership with Razer Gold, a fintech solution for the emerging eSports market by the eSports hardware and system provider Razer. This new partnership will introduce Razer’s community of over 80 million eSports fans to BitMovio, especially in the emerging market.
BitMovio is also in discussion to integrate with BitTorrent File System (BTFS)’s decentralized cloud storage protocol. It will also allow BitMovio to tap into the BTFS community of over 100 million users.
BitMovio has recently launched a product usability survey campaign to continue to improve product usability and increase community adoption. Community members can directly provide feedback and suggestions to the platform’s developers. The first 1,000 respondents will receive 1,000 MoviBits as a token of appreciation. Respondents need to have an account registered on BitMovio to receive the reward.
