WildSpark Debuts Token-Supported Video Platformbr>
A new service that allows anyone to reward content creators with cryptocurrency has launched its beta program. WildSpark, a blockchain-based curation and discovery platform, is a Google Chrome browser extension and uses AMP, a token issued by parent company Synereo, based in Tel Aviv.
Each time a WildSpark video is referred to and/or viewed, users have the option to contribute by sending cryptocurrency directly to the video’s creator.
“In today’s information economy, value is created by those who construct desirable, relevant information that is meticulously organized and delivered to the right audience,” said Dor Konforty, founder and CEO of Synereo. “Synereo’s mission is to deliver and drive the adoption of products that enable a frictionless flow of value towards those who create it.”
The new WildSpark website features a content dashboard compiled entirely of videos curated and amplified by WildSpark users. The platform currently supports YouTube and plans to implement Medium in the near future.
“Cryptocurrency solutions should always look to solve non-cryptocurrency problems, and this is a major step for Synereo and decentralized ecosystems as a whole,” said Anderson McCutcheon, co-founder and CMO of Synereo. “We believe human attention is a scarce commodity, and WildSpark has the ability to help pioneer the attention economy benefiting millions of people.”
