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