Experience the decentralization of video sharing on Viuly’s Alpha Platform
Viuly’s blockchain-based solution that aims to disrupt the current industry of online video sharing is now available to use, with the release of its Alpha platform here.
Although still in early stages of conceptualization, Viuly Alpha already resembles a full-fledged platform for users and content creators to share and watch videos, while immediately earning rewards for their interactions within Viuly. This revolutionary ecosystem will give a glimpse of what it feels like to use a fair, unrestricted environment to share, watch, and upload any content.
Users can now visit the Alpha platform to register an account, and immediately search for videos to watch and earn VIU tokens for watching advertiser videos. Users can choose from a variety of categories such as travel, business, music and sports, or look at what others are watching from the trending list, or even try out some of the suggested videos. All this without limits to access and without blocked content – all while adhering to DMCA copyright requests.
Content creators can already upload videos or sell premium content as pay-per-view videos. Regular creators can also create paid subscription channels to build their own fanbase. Alternatively, authors can let their fans pay for what their like by accepting donations. Through Viuly, authors can expect to receive a fairer share of revenue from premium content.
Early users will get a welcome gift of VIU tokens to do with as they please. From now until October 30, all new users will receive 50 VIU just for signing up and 100 VIU for uploading their first video. They can immediately use it to buy premium content or donate to their favourite authors.
In addition, users can earn rewards for sharing the Viuly revolution: those who invite friends to join will earn 50 VIU for every referral who registers and confirms their email address.
Viuly is working hard to constantly improve and add to their platform, with the next developments expected to feature advertiser functionalities to allow businesses to market and pay users for watching their ad content.
Viuly will be the way people watch and share videos tomorrow
Viuly’s mission is to transform the current online video market through the innovation of blockchain technology. With decentralization and transparency, it aims to create a fair and open video network operating on an equitable model of revenue sharing. Built on the IPFS protocol, it uses a distributed network of data storage that ensures the network has zero downtime.
VIU tokens will power the Viuly network, ensuring quick and automated rewards for all network participants from users, creators and advertisers.
With the barriers of censorship and geographical restrictions lifted, Viuly will be a place for freedom of expression and freedom of access, while still remaining DMCA compliant.
Viuly’s revolutionary blockchain solution has already led to a firm backing of EUR 150,000 from Ukraine-based blockchain investor Krypton Capital. The deal reflects well on Viuly’s vision, as Krypton Capital’s “smart money” philosophy aims to establish strong ecosystems of related companies to grow values and revenues together.
The Viuly (VIU) Token and Fundraising
The main tool for transferring value between the network is the VIU token, issued on the Ethereum blockchain. VIU tokens feature full transparency and anonymity.
VIU’s growth prospects are predicted to be directly associated to its userbase growth, influencing demand and turnover. VIU tokens will never be reissued after the crowdsale.
Viuly will launch a pre-ICO with a 40% bonus on October 10 2017 to raise further funds to develop the world’s first decentralized video sharing platform. Following this, a public ICO will run from November 1st to 15th. A maximum of 550 million VIU tokens are up for offer at a base rate of 1 ETH = 2,000 VIU.
