Projects solving this challenge


Traditional live video streaming platforms charge content viewers via a subscription model. This is outdated as content users at times end up paying for content that they do not like. Similarly, content providers lose a big cut of their earnings to centralized video streaming platforms. Livewire is a live video streaming platform build on blockchain which adopts a pay per view/stream model. With the Livewire wallet, payments made via our platform are secure, transparent and almost instant.
