Q&A: Find Out More About This AIP That Aims To Create A Web3 Streaming Platform
The ApeCoin community is currently voting on an Ape Improvement Proposal that's looking to turn the streaming industry on its head.
AIP-222 titled “A Web3 Streaming Platform Powered By ApeCoin,” is an ecosystem fund allocation proposal written by Non-Fungible Films’ founder and ApeCoin DAO contributor Cameron Moulene.
In AIP-222, Moulene explained that he and his team want to create a streaming platform, like YouTube or Twitch, where content creators retain their IP rights and earn more from ads.
Further, Moulene wrote that viewers on his platform will get to choose between directly paying for content they want to watch or watching a commercial and receiving a portion of the ad revenue that the video would receive.
“The ApeCoin Community should implement the proposal to position $APE as the driving force behind a platform which improves the value proposition for streaming media for content creators and audiences alike by rewarding communities themselves with a share of the creator’s ad revenue and by increasing the creator revenue share to 65%,” Moulene wrote. “Allowing creators to become a platform for their network’s content, we will create a truly community-focused streaming paradigm. Our goal is to make viewership fun, interactive, community driven, and to remove as many prohibitive factors as possible for creators to create and profit from their content.”
In total, Moulene is asking the ApeCoin DAO to allocate $2,200,000 USD to the project. Check out his budget below:
