Viewly Roadmap Released
As we gear up for 2018, we’d like to take this opportunity to share the Viewly roadmap with you, our supporters, as we feel that it’s important to not only recap on what we’ve accomplished and where we’re going, but also for you to see how completing each step is an integral layer in building the foundation of the first decentralized online video platform in the world where viewers can really support their favorite creators.
August 2017: Viewly Alpha
In August 2017, we delivered Viewly Alpha, essentially a “proof of technology” prototype. Viewly Alpha is based on Steem blockchain and IPFS technology.
October 2017: Seed token sale
In October, we successfully finished the seed token sale with a limited number of early community and contributors.
November 2017: Team Expansion
November was a busy month as we grew our team by recruiting top talent across all fields, including experienced developers, advisors, marketing managers, and community experts.
December 2017: Brand and Website Refresh
In December, we worked on rebranding and refreshing our core materials including our value proposition as well as our website.
February 2018: Demo platform
In February, we anticipate releasing a demo platform that will enable viewers to use tokens to reward their favourite content creators and allow early creators in the community to begin earning VIEW tokens for their content.
February 2018: Token Sale
Our main token sale event is set to begin in February. Details about the token sale will be announced soon. The funds raised in the sale will allow us to achieve many key objectives including implementing new features, scaling our platform, participating in marketing and influencer outreach efforts, and growing our organization as needed.
Middle 2018: More features and creator onboarding
In 2018, our goal is to work closely with quality content creators and viewer community to bring them on board of Viewly and develop more features to support an amazing viewing experience.
End of 2018: Viewly CDN
By the end of this year, we plan to roll out our own content delivery network (CDN) that would be scalable enough to support the growing Viewly platform.
End of 2019: Viewly P2P CDN
By the end of 2019, we plan to complement Viewly CDN with peer-to-peer CDN network that will allow people with spare storage and bandwidth capacity to participate in the content delivery- and be compensated for their participation of course.
End of 2019: DAO
By the end of 2019, we will have started the gradual transition into a fully fledged DAO, which is our end goal.
As you can see, there are exciting times ahead of us. Together, we are creating a futuristic video platform. Stay tuned for more info about the heavily-anticipated Token sale.
