What is the new social monetization tool based on the blockchain released by Aeternity?
What is “Superhero”?
Aeternity launched its latest social monetization tool based on blockchain technology on 20th May. The new platform called Superhero is to be the first decentralised tool for peer-to-peer payments for digital goods or social content.
It allows users, such as artists and musicians, to increase exposure to their content and receive “tips” in the form of tokens, while maintaining the privacy of their personal data.
The extension supported by Chrome, Opera and Firefox browsers will also benefit Influencers, bloggers and website owners. The application is also available for mobile devices and can be found under the name DApp.
The Superhero service supports tips in the form of a native Aeternite token (AE) which can then be monetized or exchanged for other cryptovalutes. DApp users can buy an AE coupon worth 5, 10 or 15 euros and then reward their favourite creators using the platform.
Aeternity’s founder, Yanislav Malahov points out that Superhero pays creators of various content immediately and does not charge any commissions on tips, which is new among platforms based on such activities.
Earnings from content have always been problematic, considering advertisers, data thieves and the hosting platforms themselves such as Youtube, Twitch and Instagram. Superhero puts control in people’s hands, making supporting creators in every industry easier and more convenient than ever.
Censorship is an important problem that some artists face. Aeternity is immune to censorship and users can retain their intellectual property without any changes related to censorship by third parties.
The convenience of Aeternity’s new service can lead to popular developers who are easily demystified or want to keep their personal data private.
From now on, you can sponsor the content of your favourite creators without any major problems, just install your Superhero digital wallet as a mobile application or extension of your browser and you can send or receive money as an AE token. The target group of the application is extremely wide, ranging from artists, programmers to educators, environmentalists or non-profit organizations.
Perhaps Aeternita’s Superhero will take over the world of the Internet or at least move it, informing creators of all kinds that if in any way the platform you are using limits your choice.
