Decentralized Comedy Content Platform ComedyPlay to Empower the Comedy Genre in the 21st Century

Decentralized comedy content platform,ComedyPlay, is leveraging the Ethereum blockchain to keep the art of comedy free from stifling centralized powers and allow upcoming creators to monetize their work in a revolutionary way.

May 10th, 2018, Port Louis, MauritiusDue to the majority of internet content being ‘free’, web-surfers are often passive consumers of digital content, supporting content creators with clicks and views which convert themselves into poorly-paid advertising revenue dollars is the industry norm.

Comedy is one of the genres of web content that is treasured by societies all over the world, and it is also one of the hardest to monetize. Social media platforms are the number one way to distribute comedy content, but the majority of revenue earned tends to go toward maintaining those platforms as part of the overhead costs, and whatever is left for the content creators is disproportionate to what viral and financial draw they generated.

It’s about time consumers were empowered enough to back their favourite comedians directly and, it’s about time content creators are fairly rewarded for their hard efforts. Thanks to the Ethereum blockchain, this is now possible.

ComedyPlay is an Ethereum-based platform that is free, open and designed to monetize comedy content with its proprietary crypto-token called Comedycoin (CCP). Users of the platform can search, stream free or paid content, as well as post their own original content; pay-per-view content will also be available from comedy industry partners (films or series).
