Overview: This project aims to provide members-only decentralized video content creators/streamers with the ability to engage with their community by rewarding listeners with NFTs representing specific episodes/tracks. Each video contains information insights that is used to test the listeners knowledge and prove they were paying attention to the video/audio. Problem Background: Media censorship in society has created mistrust between our institutions and people. It's a slippery slope when people are being silenced online. As a recent example, there was a petition signed by 270 doctors against Spotify demanding they stop "misinformation" Joe Rogan Experience. Using Livepeer and IPFS, creators can share censorship resistant content to exist online indefinitely. Decentralized file storage is coming. We expect a need for better engagement opportunities with decentralized video content creators. Market Background: The video streaming market will grow to $223.98 billion by 2028. Live videos hold users’ attention 10-20x longer than pre-recorded, on-demand content. The live music event with the highest live viewership was 2019 Coachella at about 82.9 million live views. Typical User Journey: 1. User navigates to Livestreamer’s podcast landing page (see preview of podcasts and overview of podcast). 2. Clicks button to unlock premium membership access. 3. Buy membership on Unlock with crypto wallet. 4. Connect wallet and complete transaction. 5. After user has paid (purchases the Unlock key), then Unlock redirects to Livepeer demo page. 6. User then watches the Livepeer which is livecast from a mobile phone. 7. Click button to SWAG page to mint NFTs for airdrop. 8. Users can redeem the limited supply NFT art that is still up for grabs after the end of a livestream. NFTs can be redeemed for physical swag like t-shirts, hats, and sunglasses. Risks: 1. Potential for same users to earn all the NFT supply by using different addresses 2. Bypass lock because we’re using client side server. This can be mitigated by using server-side rendering at the backend. Applicable markets: Healthcare education videos, live events, OnlyFans, concerts, sports, live podcasts

How it's made

Due to the brevity of this competition, we decided to make use of the workshops' demo apps as a starting point in our exploration. We used two Azure servers to stand up over 10 demo apps and decided to build around those examples that worked "straight out the box." We created a typical user journey based on a familiar starting point: Ray's podcast venture - HEALTH UNCHAINED.
