After more than two years in development, PUBLIQ’s new publishing platform is now live and fully operational. Anyone can open an account free of charge and start earning income from their creations within minutes. Content creators around the world can publish text, music or video and see payments automatically made into their accounts six times an hour, every ten minutes. These automatic payments continue to be made ad infinitum and individual users are never charged a fee for using the platform.
Payment amounts vary depending on a complex formula regulated by PUBLIQ's proprietary algorithms which assesses readership and influence. PUBLIQ's crypto currency token, the PBQ, can be exchanged on ATAIX.com for cryptocurrencies like bitcoin or fiat currencies right now, but more exchange platforms will surely list the PBQ in due course.
PUBLIQ encourages creators to come onboard to stimulate its ecosystem by redistributing 100% of the current advertising revenue to creators. The platform was originally designed to provide freelance journalists in countries under censorship with a secured publishing tool as well as a source of revenue. It has now evolved into a fully-fledged international publishing medium.
Since PUBLIQ's content is stored on the Blockchain, it cannot be modified, but if users want to make edits, they can connect and stack a revised version above the original. There are no limits to the numbers of edits that can be made - PUBLIQ just permanently records each version.
The core architecture of its proprietary P2P network is built on PUBLIQ open protocol and consists of three main and interlinked layers: Blockchain, Distributed Storage (DS) and Channel. It enables a sustainable, self-sufficient ecosystem fueled by its own utility token, the PBQ.
The PUBLIQ network provides full protection of IP rights as well as protecting the identity of content creators. The fair distribution of total generated wealth, namely the advertising revenue and newly issued tokens, is linked to the lifetime reputation-stake of participants. The new tokens are mined according to a schedule and are included in the turnover generated by advertisers and other network participants.
The launch comes after many months of live experimentation on the development platform. The open protocol offers companies and institutions the possibility to build and operate their own independent channels within the PUBLIQ environment, with preferred business logic, content and revenue distribution models. Several companies are currently testing their respective channels using PUBLIQ.
So far, the platform seems to be worldwide one-of-a-kind and the creators are currently calling on existing media outlets for support in communicating the benefits of the platform, which MediaBUZZ is happily to support. As with Wikipedia, the project has been created for public benefit and needs both support and responsible behavior, hence, the company is asking content creators to act responsibly regarding the cashing of PBQs, too.
