Thumb-up triggered micro-donations

Hello PeerTube community,

Thank you for your great product! We’d like to help you in solving some of the challenges for its mass adoption. To attract content creators one would need to make sure they get visibility and money, build in « the circulatory system », to improve user experience a new liberal and decentralized kind of content filtering and discovery is needed.

We develop a free nonprofit micro-donation processor with a focus on privacy and freedom. It could be a good fit for PeerTube in multiple ways:

  • Thumb-up triggered or recurring micro-donations: transparent and optionally anonymous with no service fees, connected to PeerTube keys so that they don’t require additional clicks for checkout. Instance domain owners can choose to receive a share to make hosting sustainable and scalable.

  • Visibility: applications built on the open donation statistics enable users to follow their favorite creators no matter where they publish. There’s not much difference where your creators choose to publish - YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion or PeerTube - you will see them alike, even if they happen to get banned from one of the platforms. Micro-donations to embedded content are shared between creator and PeerTube instance host.

  • Decentralized crowdsourced moderation: while universal moderation practices of the market leaders underperform, complete absence of moderation on some PeerTube instances doesn’t improve user experience either. Smartlike helps develop systems where users decide on whether or how to filter the Internet.
