Decentralized media is fairly a new gateway for many artists and creators to get their ownership back and reduce third-party interference. Before decentralization normally, creators and artists have to go through a certain level of regulations to showcase their talent and their content is sold out to other parties but the issue is content creators get low profit due to the intervention of the third party. With the help of decentralized social media, there is no need for third parties and content creators have their own back they directly contact their users.
It is also beneficial for the consumers they can choose content according to their interests and also make some interest groups in which they can vote. Now consumer data can not be hacked or misused without permission and also don’t need to follow a certain algorithm, they have control over their data.
BLOCKCHAIN AND Flick came up with a new idea to build an open platform for both creators and consumers. In this platform, users are allowed to pitch and fund their projects. In this platform, creators pitch their projects and community votes according to the suitable projects which they think are worthy. The project which gets higher votes can get funding from the Flick platform. The best part is both users and creators can work together to build something valuable which is profitable for both parties.
