About Verasity

Verasity is a disruptive next-generation video-sharing platform. Taking the best elements from traditional models such as advertising, SVOD and crowdfunding, our decentralized blockchain takes intermediaries out of the equation and keeps value within the community.

Our patent pending “Proof-of-View” technology ensures only legitimate video views get committed to the blockchain. On Verasity, viewers determine the value of content by their consumption - rather than third-parties or advertisers.

Viewers are rewarded with VERA cryptocurrency for watching and sharing videos. If they choose to watch adverts the rewards increase.

The platform gives creators and publishers a variety of monetisation solutions to choose from including donations, pay-per-view, and subscriptions. Creators can also opt to sell ‘VeraSparks’ in their channel and accelerate their growth. The users who buy them from the 'Spark Marketplace' then share in a channel’s on-going financial success.

Features

Verasity for Viewers:

View great video content
Verasity’s economy is designed to help Viewers find the content that they really want to watch. Direct commercial relationships between channel owners and their Viewers, ensure no third party can bias content suggestions.

Get rewarded for viewing
Verasity incentivizes Viewers to engage with the platform by rewarding them with VERA for the content they watch. Advertisers directly reward Viewers who choose to watch their adverts.

Earn VERA by supporting channels
Within Verasity, Viewers can help support the growth of a content channel through VeraSparks. If Viewers own VeraSparks in a channel, they receive a portion of the VERA collected by the channel.

Verasity for Video Content Creators:

Create channels and upload videos
Any Verasity user can become a Creator and launch a channel. Verasity uses proven, scalable and high-quality video streaming technology that ensures the best experience for Creators and their fans.

Multiple monetization methods
Verasity enables microtransactions that create the most flexibility for Creators and Publishers to monetize their content. No more waiting on payments as Verasity transactions are fast, secure and transparent.

Fund development of your channel
Through VeraSparks, Creators can sell a portion of their channel’s future revenue on Verasity, in exchange for VERA. This VERA can be used to accelerate growth in a channel and users who buy VeraSparks share in the success they helped to create.

Verasity for Advertisers and Sponsors

Brand new value
Verasity creates a direct value exchange between brand spend and Viewer interaction. With Verasity’s Proof-of-View technology, each view will be recorded in a way that is transparently auditable within the Verasity Blockchain.

Advertisers
Verasity enables Advertisers to directly pay Viewers VERA in exchange for their attention. Advertisers are guaranteed to reach engaged Viewers who voluntarily accept to watch the adverts.

Sponsors
Verasity enables Brands to transact with Creators directly through the platform using VERA. This assures sponsorships and brand placements are verified through Verasity’s Proof of View technology.

As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project? What do you think about idea?
Introducing its own token allows Verasity to organise its video platform as an independent economy, and therefore to use tools from fiscal and monetary policy to stabilize price levels and foster growth.

Tom Hillman
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project? What do you think about idea?
I'm Director of Communications at Verasity. I've been working in media for around ten years now and have experience in audience development, digital marketing, comms, social media, and community building.

Having worked for Guardian Media Group, and other global publishing entities, I'm acutely aware of how challenging the current landscape is for creators and publishers to not only get their content seen but also receive fair remuneration. I'm really excited about Verasity as it will be a step-change in the industry.

Verasity is a disruptive video sharing platform that puts the power back into the hands of the viewers and creators. Using Verasity’s own blockchain, viewers accumulate VERA cryptocurrency by watching and sharing content. Viewers then use VERA to donate, unlock pay-per-view videos and subscriptions from the creators they love. It’s a platform that empowers creators and viewers. Cuts out the middlemen. And improves the experience of online video for everyone.

Advisor to the Verasity.IO team.

New revenue models for content creators, publishers and advertisers need to be created as the current digital advertising model is failing and in serious decline. There is too much "smoke and mirrors' in the current video advertising ecosystem with a lot of advertiser money lost in hidden tech fees, meaning the publisher/creator lose out, the consumer loses out and so does the advertiser.

The Verasity team are focussed on developing the new consumer video model, building on existing and proven digital formats that have worked well in the gaming space such as rewarded video. From my time in the gaming and mobile word this trend and type of "ad format" is continuing to grow and break into mainstream premium publishers. Verasity's vision and tech is the next step in this process.
