ViceToken.com is designed to re-center monetization of free adult content around the specific desires of the viewer. We created a decentralized cryptographic token distribution platform that rewards each stakeholder in the adult content industry by capturing genuine viewer engagement with adult content. This ability to capture authentic user engagement at the point of interaction forms the basis of the emerging “Attention Economy”, in what has come to be called “proof of brain” technology. The foundation of ViceToken.com is built on a “fork” of the code that powers the opensource Steem blockchain, which generates and distributes Steem tokens as users consume internet content, simultaneously recording proof of such interactions on an immutable ledger. We modified (“forked”) the open-source code that powers the Steem network to meet the specific needs of the adult content industry.
ViceToken.com awards tokens, called “VIT”, to each stakeholder in the adult content distribution transaction chain. We trademarked the phrase “Get Paid To Watch Porn” to emphasize the benefit of the VIT platform for adult content viewers. The process of recording and authenticating viewer interaction on a ledger through generation of VIT tokens also permits content producers to more accurately identify viewer preferences, allowing them to refine and create better content for viewers.
To kickstart the VIT network, ViceToken.com has partnered with prominent adult content brands to make their content available on the VIT network, and will also offer a B2B implementation assistance program to other content producers to integrate VIT into their web monetization strategy.
