YouTube currently has 1.3 billion users watching more than 5 billion videos daily. They are owned by Google, and appear to be the untouchable powerhouse of video sharing. But no empire lasts forever. In a future token economy, where users get rewarded their fair share for bringing value to a decentralized video sharing platform, YouTube starts to look more and more like Blockbuster Video.
Viewo is a video sharing ecosystem, using blockchain to reward all participants for bringing value to the platform. The Israeli team is creating a custom-built content delivery network (CDN) using cloud computing technology, allowing them to scale unlimited computing and network resources, without the large investment required for traditional data centers servers.
From the company:
“Viewo is using GPU servers combined with our specialist software technology, for live and on-demand video broadcasting. This allows us to deliver content at incredible speeds. The industry calls this Ultra Low Latency Streaming which we like to call Bufferless Instant Video Playback. This allows us to provide the worlds fastest complete solution for high resolution streaming.”
Their servers can switch from GPU to CPU based on streaming needs. According to the company: “We can encode videos on the fly allowing content to play immediately after upload; no more delays like on competitor websites.”
Additionally, “In real time, we can stream live broadcasts with localized ads which are embedded into the video stream and stops popup blockers from removing ads.”
Unique private content: A pay-per-view style feature, Viewo will provide content creators the ability to offer their fans and other users unique private content in exchange for VEO Tokens.
