Across every form of online video today, content creators are getting an unfair deal. Generating popular and meaningful content is not translating to more lucrative or even sustainable careers for content creators.
Video platforms such as YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook take up to a 50% cut of a content creator's earnings. To make matters worse, creators have to pay out of pocket for expenses before platforms take their huge cut. Creators can be left penniless while the big platforms rake in the profits.
Creators are locked into these video platforms. If they leave, they lose their fan base and income. Changing platforms puts a creator at risk of losing absolutely everything they’ve spent years building. As a result, creators have no leverage and are forced to accept the terms imposed by platforms.
The Stream Token is a blockchain-based cryptocurrency that lets content creators get paid with absolutely no middleman taking a cut. Every Stream Token a creator earns, they keep.
