Blockchain Music And Video Platform VibraVid is Here to Change the Game in Favor of the Artists We Love

Published

on

VibraVid

Musicians and artists throughout the African continent are under increasing financial pressure due to the growing dominance of centralized streaming platforms that leave very little revenue in the hands of the actual creator. Streaming music platforms such as Boomplay and video giants like YouTube are not rewarding artists and content creators enough to make a fair share of the art they create. 

The new blockchain-based music and video platform VibraVid is here to change that by rewarding artists and content creators 95% of the revenues generated from their work. VibraVid is launching this month, and the simple features of uploading music, listening to music, uploading videos and watching videos, with the added layer of a peer-to-peer economy have the potential to fundamentally change the rules of the music scene for African artists. 

VibraVid’s entry into the global entertainment market perfectly aligns with a strategy to bring genuine benefits to content creators as well as their fans. Musicians, artists, vloggers and other types of content creators will all be able to reap the benefits of VibraVid along with their faithful users.

VibraVid’s music and video platform powered by the cryptocurrency BeatzCoin will allow artists to own, price and sell their work directly to their fans

VibraVid is powered by the cryptocurrency BeatzCoin (BTZC), and the platform is built on the Tron Blockchain, which is a very fast protocol that permits scalable decentralized applications (DApps) to be developed upon it.

VibraVid enables its artists to be able to control the price of their product while retaining complete ownership of their creations. Any creator using VibraVid can determine the price of their content and the volume of the advertising that they will show during their videos or music streams. 

Artists, musicians and content creators all over Africa will upon launch of the VibraVid platform at the end of September be able to take advantage of this great platform to promote and make money from their work. By creating a new peer-2-peer economy, VibraVid allow the content creator to own, price and sell their music and videos directly to their fans, friends and followers from around the world. 

Users have the potential to earn to bounties by listening to music or watching videos. 

The limited supply of BeatzCoin will create a true ecosystem where artists are rewarded by the VibraVid platform, but also offers a larger portion of advertising revenue to its content creators as well as users that no other platform can offer at the moment.

Become a better listener to the artists you love with VibraVid by openly supporting them, allowing musicians and creators to continue their work

The BeatzCoin cryptocurrency powering the VibraVid platform is up for sale on www.probit.com from the 30th of September during the BTZC initial exchange offering (IEO). ProBit is a regulated and global exchange based in South Korea, with an easy and fast onboarding process for all international and African-based users. Although KYC is not required to participate, users can get a head start and commence the simple KYC process, which is required to withdraw any BTZC tokens that were purchased during the ProBit IEO.

The VibraVid platform powered by BTZC will deliver content directly from creators to users, thereby eliminating the presence of intermediaries in the form of record companies and middlemen. A simple concept that has the potential to upend the African music industry. 

Music lover, cryptocurrency proponent and US presidential candidate, John McAfee is an official advisor for BeatzCoin. McAfee has expressed his enthusiasm for BeatzCoin and the VibraVid platform based on its potential to protect musicians’ right to full revenue while removing the middlemen who have essentially ruined the lives of countless musicians and struggling artists.

John McAfee is not only an advisor to BeatzCoin but also a huge supporter of underground music

With BeatzCoin and VibraVid, African artists who have been shortchanged over recent years by music producers, record labels and marketing companies can finally reap the fruits of their labor by owning and pricing their own work, and actually make money from it in VibraVid’s new peer-2-peer ecosystem. 

The VibraVid platform has the potential to change the entire dynamics of works and creations made by artist and content creators to enable them to get rewarded for their creativity. Can you imagine just the same way you upload your content on YouTube and is unable to get it monetized until you reach a certain threshold? The opposite is the case with VibraVid as you can get monetized immediately when someone watches or listens to your content. Check it out at beatzcoin.io.

Xago Launches XRP Only Gateway And Exchange in South Africa

Published

on

XRP Gateway

Xago, a Cape Town-based fintech company, announced the launch of its Ripple gateway and custom-built exchange in South Africa. The exchange connects to and utilises RippleNet to trade, send and receive XRP only, the native digital asset used by Ripple.

XagoXago has built the exchange in order to create liquidity of XRP in South Africa, acting as the market-making platform for cryptocurrency enthusiasts and businesses that wish to trade with and utilise XRP and the Ripple Ledger. Due to the fast settlement between wallets, RippleNet is a viable option for transferring value between exchanges, reducing exposure to volatility.

Xago was founded by Jurgen Kuhnel (CEO), Sonya Kuhnel (COO) and Mark Chirnside (Chairman) in 2016 and incubated out of CiTi’s Bandwidth Barn in Woodstock thanks to Ian Merrington and his team. The company believes that blockchain technology, and in particular RippleNet, will play a critical role in transforming the payments industry.

‘By solving the double-spending problem the Bitcoin blockchain opened up digital peer-to-peer payments without the need for a trusted 3rd party through the process of mining. Ripple took this one step further and built a faster and more cost-effective decentralised ledger to compete in the high throughput and fast clearing retail and banking environments,’ says CEO Jurgen Kuhnel referring to their choice to specifically focus on Ripple and XRP.

Once the exchange has sufficient liquidity, Xago will launch its payment switch which connects to the retailers through their existing hardware and software systems. Where Xago is utilised, it will replace the need for acquirers and card networks for retailers, and with the use of RippleNet and XRP enable cross-border payments in the future. Consumers will be able to pay for goods and transact at the point of sale using only their mobile and mobile number, bypassing traditional payment rails.

Xago’s mobile number based identity system is built to connect mobile devices, the blockchain, and retailers in one seamless experience. Together with significantly lower transaction fees, the Xago platform is gearing to compete in the high stakes retail environment. This will enable clients to create new and innovative products that will ultimately benefit the end consumer.

Xago’s Chairman Mark Chirnside added, “This is no small step on the journey of Xago.io. With this launch and with the welcomed constructive approach we take with regulatory compliance and best practice, this platform holds the promise to reduce cost and friction, at a very interesting time in the payments arena. Personally I am honoured to be involved as an investor and as Chairman.”

In late 2018, the start-up received investment from African Technology Investments Ltd. It has spent the 1st half of 2019 setting up operations and engaging with the regulators and the broader ecosystem to build a best-in-class product that will not only add value to its clients but also comply with regulations going forward.

The start-up has a broader vision for payments across Africa and has plans to expand operations into other markets in the future. Kuhnel says, “In Africa, we have an opportunity to rethink the way money flows, what it costs and the time it takes to reach a destination. Mobile has shown us how important innovation is on our continent. We must build on this and continue to provide solutions that will benefit consumers in low to middle income countries who need it most, reducing the cost and friction of moving money is absolutely key.”
