In the words of Aaron Reitkopf, CEO of digital agency Profero:
“There’s never been a better time to be in advertising, and there’s never been a worse time.”
Reitkopf was, of course, referring to the world of digital advertising.
The advent of the internet kicked off a chain reaction for advertisers. All of a sudden, marketers had myriad ways to advertise and sell their wares, and consumers’ routes to purchase multiplied accordingly.
Yet, this sheer diversity has led down a path where monetizing content has become difficult, if not impossible. Market growth has stagnated, even begun to shrink.
C3C is a brand new ICO initiated by CryptoCoin.News that aims to enable publishers to get new subscribers and new revenue streams through premium content while enabling authors to receive direct rewards from users of the C3C platform.
C3C: the monetization standard for online content creators
— Crypto Coin News (@TodayCrypto) June 4, 2018
The C3C value proposition is a decentralized protocol to connect creators and consumers, offering a blockchain-based platform to enable the monetization of content.
C3C offers three key benefits:
- Direct rewards for creators
- Personal data is controlled and monetized by its legitimate owner
- Platform users can earn rewards by participating in advertizing activities
The underlying technology is built around the following three pillars:
- Creators Rewards Protocol (C3RP)
- A consumer wallet (C4C)
- Advertiser Interaction Protocol (C3AIP)
The C3RP protocol ties rewards to wilful and intentional acts, rather than simply by spending time on a website. The rewards will be sourced from a pool established by the consumer.
The wallet will hold not only the customer’s earned or purchased tokens, but also their personal data. There will be no intermediaries, so the customer shares what they want to share, while remaining in control of their data.
The wallet’s principles are based around those developed at OpenPDS.
C3C’s proprietary interaction protocol allows advertisers to post campaigns, while enabling consumers to participate in those campaigns and thus monetize their actions.
Consult the C3C’s upcoming whitepaper for more details about these technologies.
