What We Do

Monetization

By simply attaching a LikeCoin button beneath your content, every Like by readers is turned into measurable reward without a paywall. The Civic Liker movement encourages readers to contribute USD5/mo to reward creativity and journalism, while the Matching Fund doubles the rewarding pool. In LikeCoin ecosystem, every Like counts.

Attribution

In collaboration with the industry, we are drafting the international standard content number, ISCN, which is a specification to use blockchain to immutably store metadata such as author, publisher, license terms and creation footprint. ISCN serves as a content registry in the Internet paradigm, much like ISBN served as a book database in the printing era.

Distribution

With IPFS, LikeCoin protocol helps creators to reach wider audience in heavily censored environment. Apart from rewarding creators as a Liker, readers are encouraged to become Content Jockeys to help distribute creative stories and insightful analysis. Our unique distribution footprint mechanism rewards both creators and Content Jockeys, creating a win-win.

Thrive to support content creators and publishers through the formation of a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO).
