I'm changing the way I publish digital media, you should too.
Lately I've begun publishing some of my work on "The Decentralized Library of Alexandria" - a unique, decentralized, peer-to-peer based distribution index. There's a lot of nitty-gritty stuff I could go over, but I wouldn't be able to explain it as well as the owners of the company. In any case, the important things other artists need to know are:
1. The cost to host and sell ANY sort of digital content is almost zero - right now, it costs about 10 cents per submission. You don't pay any renewal fees, subscription fees, or any of that nonsense, and bandwidth does not cost extra.
2. The uploads are permanent (though you can have them removed from the website's listing), and referred to as "Artifacts".
3. There are ZERO ADs. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada.
4. The system is coupled with a built-in copy protection scheme which permanently protects your artifacts.
5. You can accept micro-payments for content - as much or as little as you want! $.05 a view? No problem. $1 downloads? ok. Up to you, and you alone. The money goes DIRECTLY to you, IMMEDIATELY. No intermediate third parties taking your hard earned money.
6. Scale is irrelevant. Whether you publish two videos that sell once or twice, or a thousand that sell a million times each, it all works the same.
7. You can monetize content DIRECTLY in social media.
Sound impossible? Nah, just better tech - the system uses "Blockchain" technology, which is also a part of Bitcoin, a virtual currency which has over 10 million users as of this writing. Head on over to Alexandria, and check it out. Below is an example of one of my more recent artifacts.
