LONDON, UK, April 9, 2018 – Verasity, the video-sharing platform enhanced with blockchain technology that rewards viewers for watching and sharing videos, has launched their VeraPlayer. Users are now able to earn VERA cryptocurrency by watching videos on the VeraPlayer. These tokens will be accessible via their VeraWallet – which will be released later in the year when tokens are distributed.
“Utilising the blockchain to create a new caliber of a video sharing platform for the media industry is extremely exciting,” said David Orman, CEO of Verasity. “The team has been unbelievable in getting this ready so soon. The VeraPlayer is a real live demonstration of how Verasity works, allowing us to start rewarding our community with VERA cryptocurrency just by going to our site today.”
To earn VERA cryptocurrency, viewers can watch videos on the VeraPlayer and register at https://verasity.io/?veraplayer.
After a few days, viewers will also be able to generate a referral link and earn more VERA by sharing the player – either by referral URL or embedding the player on their site.
“On our video sharing platform, content creators get directly supported by their fans, rather than advertisers deciding worth based on audience segments,” said Adam Simmons, Co-founder of Verasity. “Viewers will earn VERA cryptocurrency for watching videos. From there, viewers can use VERA to transact with content creators to either donate, subscribe or pay to watch videos. We want to ensure creators and publishers can get more return for their great content they create.”
Verasity is a blockchain-powered video sharing platform that enables a direct and transparent relationship between viewers, content creators, and advertisers. With every view accounted for through proprietary, patent-pending Proof-of-View blockchain technology, Verasity provides accurate, secure, and auditable audience metrics. Verasity establishes a new direct value exchange between content creators, viewers, and advertiser.
The company’s executive team has a wealth of experience spanning across the media and technology sectors, with previous leadership roles at companies including Akamai, Eurosport, Sky, Joost, AOL, Turner and Guardian Media Group.
