MONVID – The New Generation of Decentralized Streaming Platform

Video streaming is the new norm leave alone downloading, and when you are watching a video online, the website’s server is sending you the content in real time. However, streaming still remains expensive, and worse still when you travel and wish to keep up with a series of videos, you find that the area you is placed under restriction so you cannot watch the content. Using VPNs, it is an uphill task to bypass the restrictions and this motivated the team behind Monvid to establish a blockchain platform that decentralizes streaming.

Monvid’s platform allows users to stream content without the restrictions no matter which part of the world they are in. Their solution comes in two parts, P2P video sharing that will allow content creators and owners to share their videos with everyone free of charge, and the community of users can reward them for the video with MVID. The other part is proxy video streaming, which is a platform that gives the users the ability to bypass any restrictions that would have hindered the streaming of videos on the P2P video sharing platform.
