⛵ Content and media

The Bitcoin Podcast: Felipe Sant Ana

Listen to our cofounder talk about Paratii as a decentralised alternative to Content ID and other proprietary, closed data curation systems.

💭Ads didn’t kill content monetisation - our lack of imagination did

A quest for sustainable content creation: from transactional, to ads, to subscriptions, to tokens.

Delegating votes to overcome the vote-splitting problem in TCRs

In token-based voting systems, a user can split his tokens over the alternatives and get guaranteed rewards without doing any useful work. Enabling vote delegation is a straightforward approach to solve the issue.

PTI: token summary

The Paratii protocol relies on a native utility token ($PTI) that grants access to agents willing to provide value to the network and compete in earning its rewards. Read all about it here.

Curation markets with infinite staking

Token Curated Registries are a crypto-economic construct for distributed curation. Some have predicted there’ll be a 1000 live TCRs this year. Others believe they’re overhyped.

🐛 Bug Fixes, improvements, small details

  • Implemented a translation system for web interfaces and notifications (#755).
  • Refactored contracts to conform to Solidity style guidelines (#59).
  • Defined schema and hooked up our indexer to read relevant data from the TCR contract on-chain (#174).
  • New header on the portal web app (#730)
  • Nice recognition for Yahya on the js-ipfs repo, as well as ongoing collaboration with lower-layer teams
