BitTube as a company offers several products that make up an ecosystem. At the heart of this ecosystem is a blockchain-based technology called AirTime, an ad-free monetisation solution that pays a cryptocurrency (TUBE) based on watch time of any type of content. Payouts are taken from a slowly decreasing block reward, calculated based on a user’s AirTime compared to the grand total AirTime per each block.
Creators are the cornerstone of value. User experience, accessibility and convenience are the main focus to enable them to add BitTube to their publishing rotation. Their plan to ‘integrate and complement’ is enabling instant cross-posting/commenting through the extension, which both creators and viewers can use to share content, generate traffic and establish parallel comment sections outside of legacy platforms. Every piece of media posted on BitTube.tv or watched by BitTube users is automatically monetized. This means that, for example, when a YouTuber simply crossposts their YouTube link on BitTube.tv, it is still monetized by BitTube users when they watch it on YouTube, completely outside the grasp of YouTube itself.
BitTube has several layers of user-oriented moderation with a strong focus on fairness, autonomy and transparency. Creators can moderate their own comment sections and appoint others to help. Post moderation will be handled in part by a distributed Community Moderation System (CMS) that anyone can participate in to help process reports and earn rewards.
