The Blockchain is a rapidly growing technology that is engulfing every possible business domain. Therefore, many reports published have predicted a huge rise in the Blockchain market. According to reports, the Blockchain market is expected to extend to over 20 billion dollars by 2024. It is counted in one of the most promising new technologies that are hoped to change the future of businesses and the internet.
SleekPlay presents a blockchain-based platform that harnesses the computational power of devices to reinvent the monetization of content
Blockchain technology is making it possible to disrupt the way things are done in different industries and the monetization of content in the digital economy is long overdue a complete overhaul. ‘The drawbacks of ads, together with its growing ineffectiveness and privacy related flaws, has flung the doors wide open for innovation and creative solutions that ensure users are protected and not sacrificed on the altar of profit making’ says Isaac Ikoro, co-founder, SleekPlay.
Sleekplay is a content monetization platform that reinvents the way digital content driven applications are consumed, distributed and monetized. Sleekplay harnesses the power of Blockchain computing to create a Unique monetization model that is profitable to developers and users of the network. The platform makes it possible to replace ads with a blockchain based approach.
PROBLEMS SLEEKPLAY AIMS TO SOLVE
The Ad model:
Generally, Users are given free access to content in exchange for viewing ads. However, these ads are interruptive in nature and impact negatively on overall user experience. Despite the poor experience, users are limited as to how much content they can access in an ad model scenario. Research has shown that, users on mobile devices find ads more annoying than on TV platforms
The Subscription Model:
Content is monetized by charging the user a fee on a pay as you use basis or monthly. However, the expectations of a generation have changed; users simply want things for free and any option that comes as such will be preferred by the user. The subscription fee model is not bringing in the required revenue to make these providers profitable.
The Sleekplay Model:
This model gives application developers a new way to monetize content and offer users incentives for contributing the computational power of their devices. Users can enjoy premium access, quality experience and unlimited content at no cost whilst application developers generate revenue from the value of their user-driven contributions.
How it works:
Users — Downloads and consumes content on SleekPlay-powered apps, games or services and receives incentives for their engagement.
Developers & Providers — Integrates with the SleekPlay platform to provide value to their users, while converting user engagement into revenue.
SleekPlay API — Handles the distribution and sharing of rewards and payouts to users and developers alike.
