  1. As for plans for 2020, MovieBloc team wants to make MovieBloc one of the major film platforms to watch movies and socialize with other film creators. For MBL, they want to expand the usage case for MBL tokens outside of MovieBloc, such as using it at a film festivals or watching a movie offline.
  2. An explanation how the tokens will be used and moved through the platform is: MBL will be for 1. watching premium film content, 2. paying for services like foreign subtitles or marketing materials, 3. rewarding others for their good work, or 4. participating in crowdfunding and supporting creators to produce good movies.
  3. The advantages does Moviebloc have over traditional movie publishing platforms are: MBL gives more revenue sharing to content providers. The CPs can also have transparent revenue share info, which will give credibility to our business. They also openly share the audience data for creators. Audiences can watch films and participate to get rewards.
  4. The content that will be available on the platform is considered: The team is working hard to launch the beta version by the end of July. Since MovieBloc is not a subscription-based model, content providers can easily join our platform as the revenue share will be straight forward and transparent with blockchain.
  5. In what form does ont and MBL work together? Is it pure investment or ont will be used for payment? Ontology is not just an investor. Ontology provides a series of support including funding, marketing, legal consultancy, and technology. They are discussing every co-work opportunity with Ontology and adapting ONT as a payment method.
