Challenge

Monetizing the world's content and making creative content tools accessible to everyone

Goal

Design a decentralized content discovery and collection platform using Steemit and mobile AR

Outcome

In progress... Currently participating in Product Hunt's Global Hackathon

Overview

People play games, watch things, make things, like things, hate things, find things... but it all feels the same. Not like a rat in a maze, because we love rats. But like a robot-person, in a simulation, doing the same thing over and over again for a fast diminishing share of a small reward. Most of the value we do and could generate is lost at the technical bottlenecks of fragile and tightly controlled centralized networks.

Today, users who don’t realize how much we’re all yearning to break free are using (and being used by) Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, WeChat, Line, and every other mobile chat/content sharing social network.

Decentralized content production, discovery, distribution, and monetization via a mix of blockchain & mobile AR can change that. When it feels like a game, we can replace antiquated systems by having fun building new and better ones.
