EB146 – Ryan X. Charles: Allowing Material Creators to Own and Monetize Material with Yours

In the last Twenty Years, material publishing platforms have actually multiplied to a nearly crazy number. There are numerous places where individuals and business can publish articles, blogs, videos, pictures, live content and so on. Regardless of this diverse offering, little development has actually taken place in monetizing content, which still mainly stays ad-based.

We’re joined by Ryan X. Charles, Bitcoin Developer and Founder of Yours. Yours wants to attend to the monetization issue by allowing material manufacturers to make Bitcoin when they produce excellent content. Yours is an in-browser application which carries out a Bitcoin wallet and allows micro-transactions through their own execution of the Lightning Network. Material Developers are paid by Managers who attribute value to the material. Managers are themselves rewarded when material they find important goes viral.
