Project Overview

  • Description of the project:
    • VideoWiki is a platform for publishing video content that can be automatically generated using AI, from text-based content. We aim to be a fully decentralized and censorship-resistant video publishing platform. An Open, Collaboratory Content Editing Platform that enables rapid Creation, Modification, Protection, and Monetization of Immersive Content.
    • TCH (Teach Token) is created as an enabler for the VideoWiki Project which offers collaborative content creation and distributed ownership, while offering joint abilities to modify, protect and monetize it.
    • As a Technology (Utility Token) it can enable use-cases of education, corporate L&D, training, news and journalism, marketing, research, science and more. It is purposefully built with the aim of decentralization for transparent assignment and share of ownership between collaborators.
  • What problem is your project solving?
    • In recent days we have seen the rise of various online platforms for online teaching and conferencing with online teaching sessions, however there is little done towards creating/converting/publishing educational content for online distribution and immersive learning. Even the existing content platforms have the following issues:
      • They are centralized and heavily censored
      • There is no scope of more than one author/creator/teacher contributing towards the same content
      • Once published, it’s difficult to modify the content or published new versions of it as the subject/technology develops
      • Often creator has to master skills like video editing to make the visual content engaging and immersive
    • Our platform aims in solving all of these issues by creating a platform where engaging video content is created using AI and a versioning system is maintained using blockchain.
    • The videos are published in our website (our fork of OCEAN MarketPlace)
  • What is the final product (e.g. App, URL, Medium, etc)?
    • www.Videowiki.pt will be an online platform for content creation for educators
    • The protocol will drive further developers to build their apps in our ecosystem without having to worry about server storage, scaling processes and complicated mash-ups of various services. No servers to maintain and no huge storage to manage.
  • How does this project drive value to the Ocean ecosystem? This is best expressed as Expected ROI, details here.
    • Built with Ocean protocol, A new Data-token (ERC20 Token) will be created for every new published videos and course. OCEAN token will be needed for buying these courses. Similarly in the DAOStack section, GEN tokens will be used for boosting a proposal.
    • TCH token will be used to encapsulate all the various tokens used so that new users are not overwhelmed by the various tokens used in the platform.
    • ROI for OCEAN can be calculated by the new addresses added to the ecosystem and the value staked by created content (corresponding Data Tokens) which is not yet cashed out.

Dear @BhaskarDutta and Videowiki-Team,

was a pleasure to read through your proposal and I will read it a second time to digest it all. Please note that you are still missing the minimum amount of Ocean in your wallet to qualify for the voting period. Just letting you know so that you have a chance to correct before the snapshot starts.

All the best wishes to the team
Kai
