Vimm.TV is a crowdfunded project dedicated to put the streamers and content creators first.
Vimm.TV was born from a desire to create a healthier ecosystem for streamers and content creators to grow in. We saw some real problems with the traditional model for monetization and content recommendation with most, if not all of the big players in the streaming space that could be tackled by creating a new type of economy that rewards all parties involved in a fair manner.
By using the Steem Blockchain, we eliminate unecessary fees and we're able to reward streamers for creating content on Vimm.TV using our stake in STEEM Power. Content ranking is based on actual engagement metrics like chat activity and channel growth, which means that new streamers have a fair shot at getting noticed and spark the growth of their channel.
We are currently in the ALPHA stage of development, which means some features are missing, and you may see some placeholders in a few places.
Running a live streaming service is expensive and Vimm.TV isn't backed by a big corporation. We're simply a passionate team of streamers, programmers and blockchain enthusiasts looking to bring a service that actually makes sense for independent creators in 2019.
Some of the features we'd like to bring like adding regional ingests, improving transcoding quality and adding stream replays will be quite costly. In an effort to speed up development of those features, we are now turning to the community for voluntary contributions.
