Project Info:

Playtron is a video-based decentralized social network that aims to revolutionize the creator economy by integrating the best of Web2 and Web3 technologies. It offers a decentralized platform for artists and creators to engage with their fans, ensuring content ownership remains with the creator.

Project Value:

  • Decentralized Ownership: Creators have full rights and control over their content.
  • Transparent Monetization: Direct-to-fan monetization model without intermediaries.
  • Immutable Provenance: Clear and immutable record of content origin.
  • Community Engagement: Fostering community through decentralized finance and NFTs.
  • Censorship Resistance: Ensuring creators’ voices are heard without suppression.

Project Overview:

The Web2 era, while revolutionary, has posed challenges for creators, especially in terms of content ownership, monetization, and audience engagement. Playtron addresses these challenges by offering a decentralized platform that combines the familiarity of Web2 with the potential of Web3. Inspired by the potential of decentralized systems and the idea of community ownership, Playtron provides a space for creators to truly own and monetize their content.

Welcome to Season 5, such a fresh breather seeing a project in the Artistry track. Reading through everything, I can’t help but wonder, how would you handle challenges related to content moderation and adherence to legal guidelines?
Particularly copy rights violation

Welcome to Tron Hackathon S5, wishing you all the best
