As a content creator and entrepreneur, I’m keen to keep up with the various opportunities available.
With the growth of blockchain powered technology and free speech platforms, there has been a significant influx in opportunity – especially over the course of the last 17 months or so.
Here are a few platforms that have piqued my interest.
This decentralized video sharing website is powered by LBRY, a blockchain-based file-sharing and payment network.
Crying over your meager YouTube earnings? On Odysee, your channel is monetized the moment you create it, and you can earn LBC (LBRY Credits) by completing simple actions like validating your email address, watching videos, and inviting people to the site.
Although it’s not as big as YouTube, if you’re looking to earn something with your video content, I can almost guarantee you stand a better chance on Odysee than YouTube.
2. News Break
I doubt that anyone reading this will not have heard of News Break by now.
And although I’ve been publishing daily on Medium, I can make the same amount of money by publishing one article per month on News Break.
Yeah, it’s not the same as Medium, and they are primarily looking for news related content.
But I don’t mind writing about cryptocurrencies, NFTs, precious metals, investments, and things like that. It works for me.
Steemit is a decentralized application built on the Steem blockchain. Users can earn STEEM cryptocurrency from their content.
In simple terms, it’s a crypto blogging platform. And you know who couldn’t resist? This guy!
I haven’t earned anything on the platform yet, but that will probably require more active participation in the community.
Rokfin is yet another blockchain powered video sharing site. Content creators can earn by bundling their offers in a subscription.
I haven’t done anything with Rokfin yet. I’ve just been checking it out. But I have been thinking more about creating video content lately, and if I were to do that, I would likely take advantage of Rokfin.
Obviously, you can’t do it all (unless you’re Gary Vee). But you just never know where you might find your stride. That’s why I like to experiment.
By far, the platforms I’m most excited about, though, are still the ones I build myself.
