Announcing Viewly Creator Rewards

Today the Viewly Team is thrilled to announce the release of our first token distribution program, which we are calling Viewly Creator Rewards. In its simplest form, Viewly Creator Rewards is a token distribution program, that distributes tokens to creators who are producing high quality content, in which our token holders place Votes on the best content on Viewly.

Simply put, creators are paid directly for posting high-value, engaging content.

This idea has been at the forefront of the Viewly project, as our mission has always been to provide creators with cutting edge monetization options. Over the past four months our development team has been working tirelessly to craft a dispensation method that creates a competition for creativity and quality, making Viewly a destination for top video content. The product has also been running on test-net over the past month, as our development team has been ensuring the games functionality. You can see some of our test results live on our Viewly Creator Rewards Site.

Test Run With 25 High Quality Content Creators

In two weeks, our team will run a “test-launch” of Creator Rewards with 25 high-quality creators who are eager to try the new product and provide feedback to help us create the best experience possible. Creators will be able to apply for early access to the test run via application, where the Viewly Team will be selecting eligible creators until July 4th.

Selected creators will receive tokens via the number of Votes they receive on the Viewly platform. For them, this means a few things: Creators will be incentivized to create better videos, as well as encouraged to bring over their audiences to the Viewly platform. Subsequently, creators will be able to supplement their income, and eventually, make a living off Viewly.

For our viewers, the Creator Rewards distribution will provide them a true opportunity to reward their favorite videos, and enjoy them free of ads and clickbaits.

A Mission for our Token Holders

We believe the Viewly mission is an important one, that is why we’re thrilled that our Token Holders will be able to participate in our Creator Rewards. With their tokens, these special users will be able to effect the outcome of the distribution, by Voting for their favorite videos. By doing this, token holders will be creating a community of engaged users, inspired creators, and giving birth to a competitive video environment.

With each vote, they are shaping the kind of site Viewly becomes.
