Bitcoin, blockchain, Ethereum…it’s everywhere! WTF does it all mean?
Ultimately, we are building a distribution platform where Creators and fans can come together without any third-party in between (…including PopChest itself). Obviously we have a LOT of work to do, but that’s the goal.
So, take this recent kerfuffle with Patreon. Patreon arbitrarily said, “Hey. This is what you’re going to get paid.” And people were like, “Whuuut?!” The situation seems to be (temporarily) resolved. But why should any one company have the power to arbitrarily decide what you are worth? YouTube should not have that power (…which they continually exercise at will). Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, advertisers, PayPal all have that power over Creators.
We think there should be another option. Blockchain technology allows true peer-to-peer platforms to exist. So, here we are!
