Say No More To Injustice Towards Photographer

Say No More To Injustice Towards Photographer

The world of photography is often neglected and abandoned from the spot of the media. Many assume that the photography is just about the passion and hobby and therefore they are doing as they please. But that is far from the truth since many of the photographers are defending their lives and incomes to the world of photography and their business. Today, the primary source of the creator of the photographer is the third party seller platform which is the Getty images or the Shutterstock. We do familiar with the two companies, but little of them know the bitter truth is concerning the two companies, which we are going to explain below.

The companies employ a stringent and demanding policy that is hampering the progress of the photographer and thus stripping off the profit and the right of the photographer. Here we will sum up several concerns that now exist within the current ecosystem.

  1. Centralized
    Not every centralized thing are wrong, in fact, we do need a centralized standard such as currency and system so that it gives us certainty and several degrees of rigidity. What we do mean about centralized in this scenario is the photographer, in which here is the content creator is often left behind in the term of the profit generation process, making it a one-way process in which the company control the whole profit generation process and leaving the creator suffering.
  2. The pictures right
    One of the central issues of the photographer here is the right. The right in this scenario is the right or the licensed photos. In this case, the creator is just don’t have any reason once they already submit their pictures inside the system of the platform. Even if the creator is selling the photos outside the system, they need to report back the profit to the platform otherwise they will be getting the legal ramification which is annoying.
  3. Injustice sharing of profit
    These points actually correlate with the first point. This is actually the sad, grim truth about the world of photography where the creator is just gaining a trickle of the profit generated by the system, whereas the company receives more than 85% of the benefit. The professional photography is not merely randomly flashing your camera around and making a profit. It is actually a cumbersome task when sometimes the photographer needs to be in several difficult spots and often shoot thousands of pictures just to get one specific picture that suits the desired output.
  4. Pitch black system
    What we mean here is the lack of the transparency in the big companies. We do realize that not all the thing are needed to be published to the public, but some points do require openness. But that is just what de big companies lack, where they are reluctant and even not willing to share their data concerning the licensing process, the profit generation and so forth. This is what upset the professional photographer, and thus such a cycle needs to be disrupted.

Disrupting The Current Ecosystem With Wemark

But luckily, as the technology progress, the world is becoming more and more decentralized, where there is merely a lot of disruption and groundbreaking invention that is very fundamental to the realm of business. The rise of startup businesses, especially the one who relies on the blockchain system are becoming predatory to the old ecosystem where they are destroying or at least giving alternatives to the old ecosystem that if proved to be injustice and inefficient. There are a lot of businesses that are currently reforming and thus providing a new business opportunity to make things even better. And such luck is also bestowed to the realm of photography, where a new startup is on the rise, called the remark platform.

Wemark is actually one of the most promising startups that will disrupt the whole old ecosystem that is hampering the creativity of the creator itself. As we can see, the creator is having a difficult time gaining profit, and this platform is actually the best platform to increase the benefit of the amateur and professional photographer alike. Here are several reasons why the wemark is worth trying.

  1. Gaining more advantage
    The first and the most obvious reasons are the profit. We already know that the big companies are giving only a trickle of the strength whereas they are generating more and more profit daily. That is actually very troublesome and need to be changed since it will heavily discourage the content creator. In the wemark platform, the situation is just reversed, where the companies are gaining a trickle of profit per photos and the rest of the money goes to the creator.
  2. Decentralized
    This is what more interesting on the platform, where the decision making is entirely back to the user. The creator can sell their pictures for the prices that have been set by themselves, and thus is more rewarding for the creator. We do want to ensure that the creator is keeping their creativity and accordingly being rewarded for such effort. And to do that we need to give the creator more right and more role to determine in this form of business. To put it just, on this platform, the part of the creator is significantly higher compared to the previous old ecosystem that is diminishing the part of the creator.
  3. Transparency assured
    One of the most critical factors In the business is giving the proportionate flow of information to the user or the customer. This is what makes them more appreciated and thus will convert them to a loyal customer In the meantime. Having a loyal customer is apparently one of the primary focus f the company, and one of the most critical points is having some degree of transparency. We do understand that not all kind of information is required to be published, but at least only the one which is critical such as the licensing and the profit generation process. Such information is essential to be released so that the customer or the creator understand for how much they need to pay, how much they need to spend money, and how much they will gain profit per photos.
  4. License distributed not centralized
    In the artistry world such photography, one of the most crucial point is the license of the pictures. The grant will determine the ownership of the photos and thus make it protected by the law and gaining the creator the rights of their own creation which is obvious. But unfortunately, such cases did not occur in the big companies since they retain most of the license for themselves. The platform will give the license to all the photographers regardless of their skills and their photos quality and thus make the creator more liberty and right about what to do with their own images. They also don’t need to report back to the platform once they are making the profit to the images that have been licensed by the platform.

Becoming the part of the wemark platform is effortless. First, you need to make your own portofolio on their website. This is important since the platform need to know about your capacity and your skills also experiences concerning the photography. After creating the portfolio you can start to upload the photos of your own and to get the license, you need to pay several amounts of cash at one time. The payment here are using the token of cryptocurrency, and therefore it Is not very expensive in the end. And you don’t have to worry since the licensing is a one-time process and therefore you don’t have to pay several times for your licensing process.

The Road Map And The TGE Of Wemark

wemark roadmap.jpg

Every platform will have their own roadmap to determine their own degree of success. And this platform does have the roadmap. Here are several points of the roadmap of the platform.

  1. Middle and late 2017
    2017 is the important year for the platform, where they are signing the contract of the NFX companies that specializes in the market research. The NFX are investing their money in the platform for about 1million dollars. The platform is also opening the waiting list for the contributors or the photographer that are about to sell their own photograph on the platform. And as the website claim, more than 1500 professional photographer are signing the contract just in the few weeks.
  2. Early to middle 2018
    At this point, the platform is releasing the very first product, which it enables the user to create a profile and submit their own photos in the platform. There are about 20 thousand offered pictures just a month after the release of such content. This event is followed by gaining the advisors, which is several of notable individuals in the term of business, such lee torrents, as a lead marketing in canvas, Lars Perkins, founder of Picasa which has been purchased by Google and becomes the google photos and etc. the following month is the release of the whitepaper of the platform to become the guideline both for the platform and the user alike.
  3. Late 2018
    This is yet another critical period of time for the company. The company will sell their token called the wemark token to the public for the first time. Such token will be used primarily for the transaction that is occurred within the system, and hopefully, that includes the purchase of the pictures as well. And in late 2018, the platform will be transformed into a full working marketplace where many can purchase the photos that have been provided by the photographer for some period of time.

wemark token.png

And as for sale, here are some necessary information that you need to know
• The token supplies are about 135 million dollars
• Soft cap around 1.5 million
• Hard cap 8 million
• Price per token 0.20 US dollar per token
• Sale starts July 24th and ends at Aug 7th
• Token usage: licensing, accessing several wemark features

As we can see above, the token supply is meager compared to the other platform where they can reach billions. And the hard cap is also shallow, which is just about 8 million. Which mean that they only will sell that amount of the token, as the rest of the token is used for another purpose. And that is what makes the price per token is rather higher compared to the other token amount, and this will make the sale even more interesting since the token is worth investing for.

And the second most intriguing thing is, the allocation of the token supplies, here is the information concerning the token allocation.
• 38% token sale
• 37.5% reserved for community rewards and economic scaling
• 12% advisors&partnership
• 11% founding team and employees
• 1.5% bounty program

As we can see, the token allocation is rather unusual since the token and the community rewards are almost identical. No other platform is employing such allocation in the vicinity since they implement a huge proportion of the token supply to the sale alone. The board of advisors, the founding team and employees, are also gaining more token allocation.

What we can learn from this basic information here is, the company is dropping more token to the community to reward them for their contribution in building the companies, along with the founder team and the system. That is working along with the dream of the platform to give more reward and profit for the content creator and thus destroying the old ecosystem in which the creator is suffering since they just don’t get enough profit to continue on their project.

Purchasing A House Easier And Faster By Viva Network

Purchasing A House Easier And Faster By Viva Network

House is an ever-increasing need of humanity since all humans need shelter to house their family and fulfill the needs of them such as resting, relaxing, and so forth. But the housing industry is threatened by the skyrocketing prices since more and more people are being born and fewer lands are available for the housing. This makes the house has a very high price and requires a huge amount of money to even pay the Down Payment. This is indeed very frustrating to all middle classman people since they don’t have that money to purchase the house, and in the end, they have no house and forced to live with their relatives for the rest of their lives. There is actually one practical solution to this circle, which is having a loan to purchase a house but to are possess the threat that could ruin someone financially and lead to a disaster in the market if the loan is not done properly.

We are all too familiar with the failure of the banking industry in the mortgage crisis of 2008. The problem is actually very simple since it just covers up the failure of the people to pay their debts to the bank at that time, leading to a very serious economic disaster that almost ruins America and Europe back in that time. Even though having a loan could become a huge help in having a house, the centralized system with a huge interest that imposed by the banks are making the people very difficult to pay their loans to the banks. This is indeed very counterproductive since the banks live on the loan, and the people simply can’t pay the loan since it has a huge interest with years to complete the payment period. This is the major issue why people are becoming more and harder to obtain their house.

In the world alone, the housing industry, along with the property industry has made trillions of dollar per year, and that will keep going on since the value of a house will steadily increase and more and more people are less able to purchase a house. Housing is usually divided by its type, and the bigger the type, and more expensive than the house will be. But the problem here is, even we are about to purchase the smallest type of a house, the amount of money that is required to purchase a house is still astronomical and making it more inconceivable by all the people that want to have a house. Even though the government are already providing the solution such providing the house with the zero payment system, reducing the value of a house, but that is not tacking down the most basic issue that is now happening In the world, which is the inability of a person to purchase a house due to its astronomical price. This circle needs to be broken down as soon as possible since more and more people are greatly in need of a house.

The risks of the platforms and platform mechanism

When we are talking about the housing industries, how little it is, it will contain the risk that needs to be recognized and addressed. The housing industries are a huge market with trillion of dollars that circulated per year. That sum of money is the backbone of the housing industries and thus it posse a high level of risk. Here are several issues that the user needs to be aware of before buying the token or joining in the platform.

There are a lot of reasons why this kind of mechanism will be favored by the people, and thus making this platform healthier and more reliable, which is:

  1. Fast and reliable

First is, all the procedures mostly conducted online, and it means that you don’t have to follow a series of very long and complex procedures that are usually imposed by the banks or the third party which is very inconvenient and tiring. The documentation that is required for the platform is online which mean the applicant will just need to upload their document in an instant without even be needing to go to certain places.

  1. Protected by cutting edge blockchain environment

And as for the security issue, the team has been equipped with the most talented and experienced group of assessor that is capable of determining someone’s ability in real time. They are able to determine and foresee the risk that exists in the certain people, and as well as distinguishing the real documents and the fake one. This is crucial since a lot of banking institutions are failing due to the fact that they are giving the money to the wrong person who is not able to pay for the money they owed to the banks. The team will also provide the advice for the applicant on how to pay and manage their money to reduce the risk of the applicant not being able to pay for their debt.

  1. crowd funding

The third is the funding mechanism. The funding mechanism that is imposed by the platform here is crowdfunding, meaning that there will be a lot of people are investing in this platform by purchasing the token of the platform and thus the money will be used to fund for the applicants and the mortgage. The applicant then will need to pay for a certain amount of money, and then the money will enter the crowdfunding market and becomes more money to fund even more applicant and so forth. This mechanism means that the platform will lose nothing and benefit nothing unlike the banking mortgage system and so on. The platform Is also not giving the extreme amount of interest since the money is sourced on crowdfunding, not the typical money that is provided by the banks.

The crowd funding will be translated by the platform namely the fractionalized mortgage shares or FMS. This FMS will become the amount of money that is needed in order for someone to purchase a house. usually, there will be 100.000 FMS per house, and then the crowd fills fund those FMS per month. There are a lot of reasons why FMS is very prospective for all the people. First of all, it is investment mechanism, meaning that people will receive a certain amount of money as they invest in the FMS. but FMS itself is not the token of the platform since it just the integrated investment mechanism that will be enjoyed by the people who are willing to pay for the FMS and thus crowdfunding the platform. One FMS at a time will be equivalent to 10 dollars per month, so logically, the more FMS that one person has, the more investment they will receive per month. But you should notice that the amount of the investment is not fixated.

There are indeed several risks at play when it comes to the investment, such as:

  1. Inflation risk

The first is the inflation risk, as it plaguing all kind of investment in the world. The more in the inflation is, the lower the value of your investment, and vice versa. But naturally, if the inflation rises, then it is not just your investment is at risk, but a whole country economic too. Meaning that the government will try to hold and reduce the amount of inflation in that country to stabilize and strengthen the country economy. The second risk will be the market risk, where it is directly linked to the housing market. To put it simply, the more house sold in the housing market, the more money you can get per FMS since FMS is generated by the house that is sold to the applicants. Similarly that if the less house is sold, then the less amount of investment money can be made.

  1. Interest risk

Interest is also the risk that really needed to be accounted for. Simply, as the interest climbed up due to the global economy, the investment rate is dropping since the interest will take up several amounts of money. but up to this day, there is no sign of the interest rate being high drama in the short few days due to the market optimism. The interest rate is also steadily declining since more and more business field are opening up and the market is going at a high speed to recover and regenerate money.

The sale and token generation event

Just like any other blockchain platform, this platform also has the token that could be used in various ways. The token is called the viva token, or the token for future statements. The token as we already stated before could be used for many things, but primarily is to use the facility of the platform such proposing the loan, paying the loan and so forth. the token is the ultimate form of payment where no other methods of payment are received by the platform. To get the token, the people are required to join the series of sales that is being conducted by the platform. Mainly the platform is holding two kinds of sale, which are the first stage which consisted of around 3 rounds, and the main sales which also have 3 rounds. Here is the more detailed information concerning the rounds of sales.

  1. The pre-sale or the first stage of the sale

The first stage of sale is the pre-sale, or as any other blockchain refers to. This is where you can get all sorts of bonuses that is very profitable for you. There are three rounds of the pre-sales, as the more rounds, the lesser bonus you can obtain. The first round has 40% purchase bonus, and the last round has around 30% bonus per transaction. The interval between the rounds is about 10 days, so you need to make sure what kind of rounds that you are following. As we speak, the first stage of sale is about to come to an end, since the first stage of the sale will end at 1st of July.

  1. The main sale

The main sale or the main contribution period is the where the majority of the token will be distributed. There are 4 billion of the token that is available for this platform, where 75% of them or about 3 billion of them are the hard caps of the main sale. The period of the sale is about 60 days and Main Sale Starts July 20th. The main sales also have the 3 rounds with their own bonus, ranging from 25% to regular sales with no bonus. As for the price, the price of the token depends on what kind of sales and how many bonuses you receive from the platform. The price is ranging from 50 thousand tokens per ETH to around 35 thousand tokens per ETH. And as the currency value, the token is worth roughly around 0.009 dollars per token.

  1. The token distribution

It is important to know the token distribution since the this is to show the integrity of the platform itself. Here is the token distribution as having been stated by the website.

  • 75% TGE or sale (3 billion)
  • 10% reserve (400 million)
  • 7.5% team allocation (300 million)
  • 3.75% advisor (150 million)
  • 3.75% marketing operations (150 million)
  • The whole quantity of the token: 4 billion
  1. Token usage

The token usage is primarily for the main transaction of whatever the transaction that occurred within the system, be it the payment of the loan, the proposals, and so forth. and as for the exchange, unfortunately, there is no information concerning the exchange that could be done using the VIVA token, but the website does promise there will be several practical usages of the token in the near future.

Avoiding Annoying Ads By Vidy Platform

Avoiding Annoying Ads By Vidy Platform

The world of digital marketing has grown exponentially, and opening up to so many opportunities. So many things are opening up such as the advertisements which come in various forms, the social media and so many others. The positive trait of such advancement is that you can access so many things inside the internet and many other than you required, and that is an excellent thing for the web. There is a lot of information that is circulated within the realm of the web, from thousands of ads, youtube content, exciting event, online shop and so on. Such revolutionary finding is never an impactful as internet creation.

But due to the massive amount of information that has been collected throughout the ages, several annoying things can be found on the internet. In this case, we are talking about malware, viruses, and of course ads. Ads is not a harmful thing that can damage your pc in any conceivable once, or at least the legit ads. What makes the ads annoying here is the vast amount of it that can be seen in every corner of the internet from the simple webpage or blog site to the YouTube channel and Facebook page as well.

Digital marketing is seamless and limitless, there are thousands of opportunity that lies just behind every corner, but ads is one of the dark and annoying sides of the internet that one tends to avoid as best as they can. Once an ads pop up in their pc or mobile screen, they will start searching for a cross mark to close the ads as soon as they can and continue doing whatever they are doing. The pop ads, therefore, are the most annoying forms of internet ads that can be found on the internet. There are several reasons why ads are much hated among the people.

  1. Ads are annoying

There are no words that best described the annoying advertisements that suddenly pop up out of nowhere. Imagine that you are about to click some vital button in a webpage and suddenly you are being redirected to fraud as that is not legit, or to a slow loading page, and you have to do that multiple times to proceed to the desired button. That is indeed frustrating, and that is why the amount of free and aid adblocker and adware blocker are raising significantly due to the demand of the people or internet user.

  1. Irrelevant Ads

Imagine that you are a male and need a laptop or mobile phone, and you need some ads to compare your desired stuff or want a preference, but the ads that keep popping is gaming app or adult ads that have zero relevance to your needs. Ads are okay since that is the most efficient way for a particular company to promote their stuff and let the people know that there is an excellent and high-quality good waiting for them. But since we cannot filter the ads that keep showing up, therefore you will get even more irritated, and you end up hating all forms of advertisements.

  1. Ads look so messy

A webpage that has numerous amount of commercials are dirty and looks unattractive. The more ads they have, be it a banner ads or the pop ads, that will make the people tend to leave such webpage. And the second issue of the webpage-infested ads are, loads of such website will be very slow and going it very hard to access. But this is a vicious cycle that cannot be broken down since most youtube channel, or website does need money, and the advertiser does provide money for them then the publisher will keep posting the ads as they please.

  1. Ads are deluding

Ads in several web pages are impersonating the vital button such play, download, open, or etc. even actually we can distinguish the legit button and the ads button, hence the ads button looks more colorful and more prominent and brighter rather than the correct button, many people still fall to the ads trap, and therefore they keep getting more and more pop ads. Having to close the pop ads multiple times is not a fun business, and that people will end up hating the pop ads, no matter what kind of product that they are advertising.

The intrusive, abusive and invasive nature of ads, therefore, is the main reason for the downfall of the digital advertisement. For now, about 600 million people are already blocking the ads using the adblocker or the google plugin. And more people are ignoring and try to close the ads as soon as they can. This makes the world of digital advertisement are impotent and ineffective and thus making the companies are wasting their money and effort by advertising on the internet.

For more information concerning the digital advertisement, you can visit these websites.

The ads counter offensive

The downfall of digital advertisement is already going and seems there is no going back. People are already imprinted ted in their minds that they hate ads as much as they can, and thus will keep closing as soon as possible, and avoid the ads as best as they can when they see the ads. And the big companies are already losing this advertisement war and start using a more aggressive profile track to map the people and learn their algorithm to see their desired ads. That is a wrong way to approach the issues since the main problem, in this case, is not what kind of ads that they want to see, but how to open their minds and accept the ads anymore. And fortunately, there is already a solution that is emerging.

Introducing the vidy platform. This platform is just what the companies need that will bridge the demand of the internet user, and the advertisement needs of all the companies. To keep it simple, the platform does the following.

  1. Bridging the internet user and the companies

This is already stated a little above. The main goal of this issue is to make the internet user are not anti-ads, and therefore they want to open up their mind again to accept the ads. The platform is doing just that, where the internet user now can see the ads and get money from doing that. That is a very convenient and the perfect booster for the people to see the ads anymore since they need the money and the platform is applying the gamification, quest-like reward for the people to watch the ads. It is straightforward since you need to hold the banner ads and start watching the ads.

  1. Organized UI

One of the thing that is hated by the internet user concerning the Ads are the messy and disorganized banner ads dashboard. The publisher will spend every space of their websites or the blog to put more and more ads. This will make their page blinking with so many ads color and that is simply annoying. The disorganized UI will also slow your loading page, and consume more data and that is very annoying. The platform will make a solid standard concerning the ads usage and location and amount so that the web will be visited more often and the effect of the ads will be amplified.

  1. Emphasizing relevance

The relevance of the ads is also important since ads are the information source that can be helpful to your preference. But showing the irrelevant ads will make you annoyed and hating the ads even more. The platform will scan and match the ads and your algorithm so that you can see the ads that you want to see in your life. This will result in the different people visiting the same webpage and seeing the different ads. That is a powerful tool since it can filter the ads, and therefore the company can show the ads to the exact person who searches for such ads.

  1. Decentralized ecosystem

A free to all business is the dream of every capitalist society. Throughout the history, all kind of laws has been passed such the antitrust in America to safeguard and protect the open competition business and to prevent monopolies and centralized business system. But as the emergence of the internet business in the late early 20’s more and more business has monopolized one particular sector, such as the Facebook mega companies, youtube, google and so forth.  This is unhealthy since the internet businesses are getting more centralized and therefore many internet users have no preference or option while browsing the internet.  The platform is a decentralized platform where they try to decentralize the informational flow and thus opening a new market for business to grow.

How Does It Work?

It is straightforward to know how the platform works.  When you are about to use the platform, you will need to create the account, and in that process, you will need to fill out several information such as the products preference and so forth, so it will be just like a survey. This phase is critical since it will determine what kind of ads that you will see, and what kind of ads that you don’t want to see. That process is natural and doesn’t consume so much time Init. The platform then will work just like the browser plugin, and thus you can see the ads that you desired more.

Token Sales Plan

And just like any other platform, this kind of platform has their token sales too; there are three kinds of sales that occurred in the platform, they are a private sale and the first sales. The private sales have been concluded with tremendous success, and the company is ready to move to the second phase which is the initiation of the pre-sales. The, unfortunately, are not yet informed so then we have to wait a little bit. But according to their website, the pre ico sales will be conducted just about 35 days from now on, or at 15th of August 2018. The soft cap of the sale is about 15 thousand ETH coin, and the hard cap is about 60 thousand ETH coin, $16 million already raised! The pre ico sale will have a bonus of 33% per coin, and as the general worth per token, one vidy coin is worth about 0.00001673 ETH per coin.

And as the token allocation, here is the summary of it.

  • 52% token sale
  • 22% team
  • 25% advertising partners
  • 0.5% bounty program
  • 0.5% airdrop

The platform itself recognize four tier of membership, and that tier depends on the total amount of token purchased by the people. Here are the four tier of membership that exists in the platform.

  1. Free Tier

This is the lowest tier, and have an insufficient amount of feature that can be used by the user. The free user can only upload a single video ad to the platform, and the video is not filtered, which means that their video still can be seen by the wrong person who doesn’t want the ads and thus making your ads ineffective.

  1. Titanium

Titanium tier is the second lowest tier with a minimal amount of purchased very token is about 300k token. There are variations but still a limited feature that can be accessed by the platform but still is wider than the free account. But you can upload unlimited video ads that you do want, and your ads can now be filtered too.

  1. Gold

Gold tier is the second highest tier which you can upload an unlimited amount of video ads, an extensive feature that you can access, and more. To access this feature, you need to purchase at least 700k amount of vidy coin.

  1. Platinum

Platinum is the highest tier that you can have, with the ultimate access for the best platform feature. Your ads are also guaranteed to reach the best market for the best result for sale. To reach this tier, you need to purchase at least about 1 million very token.

Wemark: A New Disruption In Photography Content Market

Wemark: A New Disruption In Photography Content Market

The Domination and Injustice

The market for photography content is being dominated by two big players who are the shutter cock and Getty Images. These two companies are charging the ridiculous amount of fee to the content creator, to the point where the companies are retaining up to 85% total value of one creation and leaving the photographer only a fraction of their profit. This is demeaning and degrading since the creator are struggling so hard to acquire the photos, and therefore should be rewarded more for their hard work. However, that is don’t happen since the companies decided to keep the profit high while the creator’s appreciation low.

There are many issues concerning the current photography market ecosystem. Here are some of the issues:

  1. Rejecting transparency

As we have stated before, the big companies are keeping most of the profits and thus leaving the creator scratching their head for such unrewarded effort. Unfortunately, there are no official statement or the system explanation concerning their form of business or their payment system, and it means that they keep the profit high is they want to make it high. This is outrageous and needs to come to an end as soon as possible.

  1. Unrewarding process

Photography is not an easy task and an easy job. Photography is more like an art, rather than randomly flashing your camera to a random object. Sometimes, finding such object need a harrowing struggle, such as climbing the peak of the mountain, diving to the ocean, taking a very rare occasion photo, and so forth. Photography requires the high amount of patience and resilience and therefore need to be rewarded. However, unfortunately, the market didn’t allow them to have a great profit. Instead, they are just being paid with only a trickle of their hard work. This is indeed discouraging the entire photographer, and thus need to be changed.

  1. Copyright

This is the sad truth that is hampering the photographer. Once a creator uploads a picture to the image Getty or the shutter cock, they are the one who retains the right of the photos, and thus making them the sole controller of the price where the creator is kicked out of their place. This is sad since the creator knows how hard the photo can be taken, and thus they know how worth their pictures are.

  1. Centralized

What we mean by that is, the process of the pictures submission and the payment fee is mostly one-way process. It means that the process cannot interfere with anyone and anything, even the creator itself. Moreover, the creator doesn’t have any other alternatives since both companies are the only companies that pay them for their pictures, and therefore the creator must submit to this system regardless of what they feel.

Those are the existing issue that is cycling amidst the pictures market, and this is discouraging the content creator, which is the photographer. In this era of digitalization and information, it is time to set free the market of photography from the crippling ties of the big company and search for a new alternative that is more rewarding compared to the previous one.

Wemark As A Disruption In The Current Ecosystem

What we need more now is a disruption to open a hole in the market, and offering the new alternatives for all the content creator, and thus making them more rewarded for their hard work. Moreover, fortunately, such disruption is already emerged called the remark. Wemark is a blockchain powered startup that will try to pay more for all the photographer and to provide them the justice and transparency that they deserve. Here are several features of the wemark that we know about.

  1. Decentralized

As with any other blockchain related startup, they are always decentralized. Both are determined not only by the companies but to all the user as well. In this context, the user is the creator of the photos that are selling their photos within the system. That is just how the blockchain works, which require the feed from the user for the transaction to occur. By this system, it means that the companies and the creator can appraise the photos and determine the prices tags per photos. Moreover, this is a revolutionary way since no other companies are implementing this system, except the blockchain powered companies.

  1. Transparent

Transparency is just what the creator want. They want to know how much their pictures are being charged, and what happens inside the system. They also want to know how they value their work and setting the prices per photos. Such occurrence did not occur in the old ecosystem, but it did happen in the wemark. The blockchain and the smart contract system will be applied to provide transparency to all the creator concerning what happens to their pictures once it has already entered the market.

  1. Owning license and right

Previously in the old ecosystem, the creator are stripped of their right and need to report back whenever they are already making profit outside the ecosystem of the companies. That is awful since the creator is removed away from their creation and thus leaving them clueless what to do with their photos since they are no longer have right to distribute it without the consent of the companies. That time is over since the ecosystem of the wemark is giving the right of the photos to the creator, which is obvious. It means that the creator can do whatever they want in their photos, which is also evident since they are the one who creates them.

  1. Better prices

The prices that are being set by the companies are high and unrewarded since they need to deal with the third man or the third parties, which is the company itself. You may think that the wemark is also the third party like the other companies, but that is wrong. Wemark provides the place where the creator and the market can meet and thus making the creator having more money and reward rather than only a fraction of money compared to the previous ecosystem.

  1. Trustworthy system

Moreover, final, above all the benefits that will be obtained by the creator itself, is that the creator can trust the system since the system itself is running autonomously and unable to be manipulated by everyone or everything. It will scan your photos, where you can set the price range, and conduct the transaction directly to the buyer and so forth. No more companies interference, no, more one-sided and injustice companies decision.

So as for the process, it is somewhat natural and familiar. What you need first is to sign up by creating the account of the wemark platform.  After you have successfully created the report for the platform, then you can start uploading photos to the ecosystem where you can set the range prices per photos, and then let the platform do the work, which is by displaying the images the world. It is an easy and straightforward process where it will benefit all.

The TGE and the Current Process Of It

The most distinct and distinct process of the startup platform is their TGE or token generation event. However, first, let we explain the usage of the token itself. The symbol is the primary currency that will be used to perform the various transaction within the system, such as receiving payment, and so forth. There will be no other currencies to be used inside the platform, just the wemark token. That is just a common market practice by the platform to ensure the value of their symbol.

As for the usage of the token, currently, the token will only be used for licensing and accessing the photos within the system of wemark. However, there will be several advancements of the usage of the token, such as the ability for the creator to hire the model, hire the lawyer or legal team, even selling their photos with token and receive the payment with token too. That will increase the practicability of the token so that it will be used outside the system also. However, since the token itself is preferably flexible and inside the ethereum system, it is possible to exchange the token to the flat currencies and gaining the reward since the token itself comes with the form of investment, just like any other token inside the ethereum system.

Also, as for sale, they are rather different from the rest of the cryptocurrency in the business. First, they provided an insufficient amount of information concerning the sale, but here what we know concerning their sale:

  • Total token supply 135 million token
  • TGE starts on 24th July and ends on Aug 7th, 2018
  • The soft cap is about 1.5 million dollars
  • The hard hat is about 8 million dollars

At first glance, we already know that there is a huge difference between this platform and the other. First, this platform is having a meager amount of the total token supply, which is about only 135 million token.  Moreover, that is a dwarf compared to the other startup which is reaching for about billion of the total token supply. Also, the second, there is no division of the sales, meaning that they are only deploying one sale period, which interestingly called the crowdfunding rather than the main or the pre-sale just like any other platform. Also, when we look at the period of the sale, we know that the period is only roughly two weeks, not a full month period.

However, that seems not an issue since all the platform has their right to move and shape their own business. And thus this is advantageous for the platform since the token worth more dollars compared to the other token type. The price of the token is about 0.20 dollar per token, that is a very high value for such a token, where the other token is usually having more digits and thus lowering the cost of the token. This also means that the investment by using the token is rather prospective and valuable compared to the other token platform since the initial base value is already high. After the vesting amount of time has elapsed, you can exchange the token for the fiat currency and obtain more money in the process.

As for the token allocation, here is the proportion for each party:

  • Token sale 38%
  • Reserved for community reward and economy scaling 37.5%
  • Advisors and partnership 12%
  • Founding team 11%
  • Bounty program 1.5%

This is another surprising fact about the platform. We can see here as the token allocation is lower compared to the reserves and the community reward. It means that the platform will concern the compensation for all the photographer to encourage them to use more photos and therefore to make the platform becoming more and more lively and accessible. This is hugely different from the other platform where they are portioning a considerable amount of the token in the token sale.

The reason behind this reason is that the customer still actually allowed to purchase the pictures using the flat currency such dollars. However, as the time goes, more and more services of the platform will be using the token only, and thus increasing their usefulness and rising their value. That is actually very different compared to the other platform where they don’t have a stable community, and therefore they don’t need to worry about the community reward, but once again, that is just what the varieties of business are.

If you are a photographer, it is natural that you want to make a living from your pictures and skills. Searching for a platform that will justly reward you is hard, and therefore you can choose the wemark for your business partner.
