– How your product solves the pain-point
Creator pain points = piracy + real time consumer analytics + payment
We solve this problem via proprietary content compression & encryption once it is uploaded to our servers by the creator, and since all content is actually consumed via our apps in PC/mobile, the content stays protected while the apps report usage back to the server. Finally, our ingenious mobile payment system solves the problem of payment locally, while integration of stripe serves diaspora.
