“We are convinced VideoCoin will revolutionize the video streaming industry.”

- Michael Novogratz| Head of Galaxy Investment Partners

Video is responsible for over 80% of all internet traffic.

Yet operation and innovation in the video space is limited by crippling obstacles.

Challenges of current Internet video infrastructure

  • regulations
    Video service provider quality of service experience open to impact of regulation / deregulation moves.
  • privacy
    Distribution and consumption transaction records transparent to providers and government entities.
  • centralization
    Vendor lock-in limits flexibility on pricing and feature sets and brings single point of failure risk.
  • costs
    Rising Costs
    Transition from broadcast to fast-growing IP-based delivery has skyrocketed media company costs.

The VideoCoin Network

That's why we are building the VideoCoin Network - a decentralized video encoding, storage, and content distribution system that turns all cloud-based video services into an efficient algorithmic market running on a new blockchain with a native protocol token, the VideoCoin (VID).

Start Streaming
Introducing Introducing
  • Lower Costs
    By deploying unused compute resources costs will lower 50% to 80%.
  • Disintermediate market oligarchs
    With peer-to-peer video processing, distribution and storage.
  • More Security
    Less risk through decentralized, end-to-end ecription.
  • Enable New Applications
    Open APIs & open source-based development allows for a new generation of applications to emerge.

Leveraging the Blockchain

Encoding and Storage
Encoding and Storage tasks are submitted to the VideoCoin Network along with encoder configuration parameters like bitrate, codec, and output containers format, along with an ASK price. Miners compete with other miner to win bid and provide compute power or storage space.
Retrieval and Distribution
Retrieval and Distribution tasks are submitted to the VideoCoin Network along with CDN configuration parameters like geographical region and bandwidth. Miners compete with others to win bid to retrieve videos from storage miners and distribute it to end-consumers, like a CDN.

Native protocol token

VideoCoin Blockchain is specifically built to power video streaming which requires super fast transaction times. It uses useful proof of work to make use of Hardware accelerated Video functions on GPUs and CPUs and implements a novel proof of stake model to power complex decentralized video infrastructure.

How to participate and earn VideoCoins
  • Storage Miners

    Earn Tokens to store videos. More storage pledged, better rewards.

  • Distribution Miners

    Earn Tokens to deliver videos (like a CDN). More bandwidth, better rewards.

  • Compute Miners

    Earn Tokens for providing CPU time (for transcoding). More compute, better rewards.

  • Relay Miners

    Earn Tokens to relay storage on third party servers (e.g., unused capacity on AWS), More storage + bandwidth, better rewards.

Engineering Team

Live Planet, Inc. has been engaged to provide services to VideoCoin Network. Live Planet, Inc., along with a team of accomplished media and technology advisors, is implementing the VideoCoin Network and building the future of video on the internet.

Our principles

As we proceed with the development and deployment of the VideoCoin Network and issuance of the VideoCoin Token, we'd like to express the principles on which this effort rests. Our Principles is meant to describe what we believe and how we intend to conduct ourselves in serving VideoCoin’s community of users, miners, the global crypto-currency and development communities, application developers, and you.

  • 1

    Our goal is to build the next generation Internet video infrastructure.

  • 2
