Vevue

A blockchain social video platform.

Vevue is video evolved. We're dedicated to empowering creativity. From feature films to restaurant reviews, we are returning control to content owners by changing how we interact with, distribute, watch, and appreciate videos. We believe earning tokens for video in a task-driven economy is the future of content sharing.

  • Pros: 

    Creative, new concept

    Cons: 

    Featuritis, I don't see any competitive advantage

    I've had to watch your video 3 times to completely get what this app is all about.

    There are a couple of things that I don't get at all from a logical point of view. Why would any user request footage from an X location from a Y user on your platform? What's the value in that? What are you guys making easy? What is it that this platform offers what other services cant? Copyright protection certainly is not a unique feature, many other platforms do this. I also don't see how a blockchain would be of any help at all, creative work whether it be videos, photos or audio could easily be stolen from its owner so I fail to see the value of that.

    I think the makers of this product have assumed too much and also are trying to do too many things at the same time.

    - Nothing is stopping any bad actor from stealing someone IP, not on your app, not on any website, with our without a blockchain or any advanced kind of copyright software that you may be implemented, if you guys are, you'd be the first in history.

    - The mechanism is where creative people get paid can only work in your ecosystem, isn't that a problem when you haven't reached and X amount of supply of consumers to be financially viable to your creators? Why should creator X who is on Youtube (and Instagram and Twitter and Snapchat) who makes a living should feel obligated to participate in your platform? Youtube has more scale, more tools for creatives, I assume pays more than you do. Once again, failing to see how blockchain works in this scenario. Are the makers assuming that content creators even care about this to a level in which they would consider using this platform? I don't know.

    - This platform tries to be Youtube, Yelp, Snapchat, Netflix and Spotify at the same time. Historically, startups and platforms that try to do too many things at the same time will burn down to the ground because of a lack of focus, companies that go hyper-niche are much more prone to success because of their 'do-one-thing-very-good' mentality (Instagram, WhatsApp, and Snapchat even (in their early days) for example). The odds of being the best at one particular thing are already low, and the odds of being great at two or more are even more minuscule.

    Again, what is it that you guys give in terms of value that all the companies that you are trying to compete with don't... and if blockchain is all you have than I strongly advise to pivot right away, it's that, or it's going into obliteration, historically speaking.

    I wish the founders the best and I wish them all the success!

  • Pros: 

    Best distribution Plattform for creatives. No advertisements, no fees, 100% paywall profit directly paid out. Fast development.

    Cons: 

    small community and missing Android app.

    It is a good platform to distribute videos. You place a paywall of any amount and receive the payments directly. Nobody else earns from your work. Later it should be possible to share the paywall profit. If someone then uses your works, you receive a part of his income. It is also possible to send requests to a world map. This allows you to request specific content. If it concerns complex recordings, you can collect money for the content also from several persons.

Hey @thomasolson & @kathrineolson, Can you tell us more about what you've built and where you see it in 5 years?
Kathrine OlsonMaker@kathrineolson · Vevue CMO
@thomasolson @jacqvon Sure! We've built the world's most advanced social video platform largely impart to the Qtum blockchain. Their focus on decentralized applications has allowed us to create an interface where you easily can send payments, receive copyright IP protection and crowdfund for videos all through our mobile app. We've reached some epic milestones proving use cases for social video on the blockchain. This past July, we launch the first-ever feature film using blockchain technology. This Fall, we're making history again as we redefine how music artists go on tour using our crowdfunding-request model. The Vevue system allows users to place or contribute to token-incentivized requests anywhere in the world. For fans, this is a new level of accessibility. They can connect with their favorite artists by asking for behind the scenes footage or for a pitstop at a town that's not normally a tour destination. For indie artists, answering requests and interacting with fans provides additional revenue while on tour, aside from just ticket and merchandise sales. However, Vevue is for everyone, not just filmmakers and music artists. We've just been lucky to garner great examples of how the platform can empower content creators. There's a mass exodus happening on traditional social media platforms because of issues involving privacy, ownership and misguided algorithms. We're using the blockchain's transparency and accessibility to build a platform of evolved social media. Everyone should be rewarded for sharing who they are. We want everyone on Vevue. Everyone should have the opportunity to make money for sharing their videos - immediately, not after 10K likes. In 5 years, we want to be the global platform for authentic social video engagement.

Very unique concept! I'm intrigued and can't wait to try this out and learn more about it. Good luck to the owners.

Are you guys doing anything to stop/censor any video makers?
Kathrine OlsonMaker@kathrineolson · Vevue CMO
@calchulus We are a community moderated platform. Users can flag inappropriate content and we can take it down. We anticipate that as the community grows, we will have the opportunity to test other governance systems that uphold transparency and promote trustworthiness.
