FAQ

Why try to re-invent the wheel? YouTube works fine!

Video experiences comprise the lion's share of value found by consumers, creators, and businesses on the social internet. But online platforms facilitating video experiences are predominantly focused on preserving their market dominance. This has created a restrictive perception bubble of what media is becoming in our modern digital age.

When recommendations can be tuned to users instead of advertisers, a platform can reward those who contribute to its growth by helping create content, bringing in attention and thus increasing the value of the media network as a whole. This will translate into a greater wealth of choices aligned to a particular consumer's interest, and more opportunity for content creators to find attention and resources.

But how can a video platform be sustainable? Aren't they costly to run?

In the early days when the giants of today (like Youtube) were still forming, video hosting was prohibitively expensive, so the only option was to develop a centralized, hierarchical content network.

But since then, peer-to-peer hosting has gone from "implausible" to "waiting for mainstream adoption." Individuals can host videos almost as simply as downloading a file or hosting a torrent.
