AngryToken is developing Snipad, a platform for news, and Slinkad, a platform for video content. Both of these systems will be decentralized, allowing creators to publish content without a central authority imposing its will or sucking up all of the income. These platforms will allow creators to directly enter into agreements with advertisers through smart contracts, giving each side more control and streamlining the process. Creators will be free to choose which advertisers they work with, as well as the circumstances and payment structure, whether it is per subscription, per view or even completely free.
There has been a lot of media attention around subjects such as fake news and data mining, but very little on the decreasing quality of content or why this is happening. The short answer is that the dominant platforms have the wrong incentive systems in place, so creators don’t get compensated adequately for original and exceptional work, meanwhile the rest of us are forced to drown in the meaninglessness of listicles. The current approach is dangerous, because these platforms are feeding us low quality information. Without good information, we can’t make good decisions, nor can we act appropriately.
