An open platform for video distribution

We’re putting YouTube on the blockchain. A decentralized approach to monetized video distribution using direct micropayments and token incentives instead of relying on advertising and paid subscriptions.

What is The Pop Network?
The POP Network is a decentralized approach to monetized video distribution using direct micropayments and token incentives. No ads. No subscriptions.

In the same way Bitcoin (peer-to-peer electronic cash) forces a profound
 re-examination of the modern financial system, The POP Network is a tectonic shift in how humans create, distribute, and consume media in peer-to-peer fashion. The POP Network is not simply competition to existing models but rather an entirely new ecosystem.
01

Ethereum Payment Channels

To facilitate the massive amount of high-frequency transactions sent to and from creators, viewers, and the network itself, payment channels are utilized.

Transaction fees with the underlying blockchain only occur at the start and end of channels, allowing for an extremely efficient micropayments system.

02

In-Browser

PopChest has partnered with Machinomy to implement the Vynos wallet on The POP Network.

This JavaScript wallet can function on a wide range of products built for video consumption, like smart TVs and mobile phones. There is no need to download a browser plugin or install single-purpose software.

03

Decentralized Distribution Protocol

The POP Network uses a decentralized storage and distribution system based on BitTorrent and WebTorrent.

As video propagates throughout the network, nodes start serving packets they possess in unison with other nodes to provide a fast, seamless viewing experience.

In-browser clients then act as peer-to-peer streamers themselves, thus increasing capacity and balancing the load. All participants receive POP Token rewards for serving the network.

Purpose of the POP Token

Purpose of the POP Token

The fundamental purpose of The POP Token is to provide all network participants with power, access and status: power to publish videos, access to watch videos, and status reflecting contributions to the network.
In its simplest form, The POP Token can be acquired by direct purchase. Though, the true power of the token lies in its ability to be gifted from origin to those most responsible for ensuring the platform’s success. Rather than buying into the network, it’s also possible to earn your way.

Our commitment to you:

01
Use The POP Token to create an economic incentive for disparate groups to work together in collective benefit for the network.
02
Although it is practically impossible to create a multifaceted system like The POP Network to be entirely decentralized from the beginning, our goal is to incrementally disperse major decision making to network participants.
03
Focus on network effects which make The POP Network defensible and enduring.
04
Allow anyone that demonstrates willingness to make a positive contribution to participate on the network, as determined by the community and not a central arbiter.
05
At its zenith, The POP Network will be owned by no one, controlled by no one, and the property of all.
