WHAT IS VIULY
Viuly.com is a first decentralized video sharing platform. It is built and curated by the Viuly user community.
Our end game is to disrupt the video market as we know it by becoming the biggest global decentralized video sharing platform.
Viuly takes the power from the centralized platforms and puts it back where it should be – in the comminity hands.
- Authors can sell their premium content, receive pledges from users and at the same time, earn from advertising revenue sharing program.
- Users watch free videos and get rewards.
- Advertisers place ads and pay directly to authors & users. No more middlemen.
All payments on the platform are carried out automatically in VIU tokens and the transaction history is stored on the blockchain.
VIULY tokens (VIU) are based on the Ethereum blockchain smart-contract and represent the main tool for transferring the value between advertisers, content creators and users.
Video content storage is decentralized and built on top of the IPFS protocol.
Here are a few key features, that make our platform unique and revolutionary:
- Upload free videos and create channels
- Sell access to your premium content
- Be rewarded for watching free videos
- Support and pledge to content creators
- Buy premium content with VIU tokens
- Advertise and pay directly to our users
Our goal is to create a completely decentralized video sharing platform with no middlemen, where authors and users rewarded for doing things they love and enjoy!
NOW YOU’RE PAID
Are you ready to get a reward just for watching the video content you are interested in? Are you ready to get paid for what you used to do for free?
Yes, that’s right! User attention is the most valuable resource on the Viuly video platform. Now you’re paid for watching videos.
You can withdraw and spend the tokens received, or you can support video creators by pledging, or pay to unlock access to the premium content, training courses, etc.
CONTENT CREATORS EARN MORE
1. Video creators can upload their video and specify the price on a pay-per-view base. Users, who are interested to watch their premium content, pay the indicated cost and automatically get access to the video.
2. Video creators can create paid channels, for which users pay a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly subscription fee.
3. Video creators can upload their video and specify them as free to watch. In this case, advertising may be embedded in these videos and they will automatically receive in their wallet 65% of the cost specified by the advertiser for each unique ad view.
4. Video creators can upload their video and specify that users can watch the video for free, and that the video is ad-free.
In this case, users can find the “Donate” button below the video, and if they liked it, they can support the author by sending any amount of VIU tokens.
ADVERTISERS GET DIRECT USER ENGAGEMENT AND LOYAL CUSTOMERS
Viuly provides advertisers with accurate statistics for each ad view. All data is recorded on the blockchain and can be checked either by an advertiser as well as by third party auditors. The payments for user’s attention are made directly, without intermediaries and is completely transparent. The advertising cost is lower by 20% than on centralized video platforms.
1. Advertisers may upload on the platform their advertising video that promotes an event, a website, a product or a service, by indicating in the settings a cost-per-view and choose targeting audience based on country, city, gender, age and interests. A video will be shown only to those users who are in the selected targeting group.
Important! Users never know for which video they will receive a reward. Therefore, it cannot be considered as a reward based view.
2. Advertisers may add their banner or a short promotional video for up to 30 seconds to appear in the videos that are listed as free to view by their authors. It is possible to choose targeting audience based on country, city, gender, age and interests.
3. Advertisers may add a video that promotes a specific product or a service, to the Viuly marketplace, along with a text description, technical characteristics and price. Users can buy the product or the service, advertised in the video, by clicking the “Buy” button and pay with VIU tokens.
