Lino‘s mission is to create a collectively owned, decentralized means of distribution, which ensures all content value is directly distributed to content creators and affiliated contributors without going through a privately owned entity as a middleman. In Lino, can be recognized efficiently and all contributors can be incentivized directly and effectively to promote long-term economic growth.
Lino aims to create a decentralized autonomous content economy, where content value can be recognized efficiently and all contributors can be incentivized directly and effectively to promote long-term economic growth.
The reason companies like Youtube have enormous power over content creators is that they almost monopolize the means of distribution. Youtube, as a privately owned entity, has its fundamental interest in maximizing profit, which poses an underlying conflict of interest with content creators. The solution is to create a collectively owned, decentralized means of distribution, which ensures all content value is directly distributed to content creators and affiliated contributors without going through a privately owned entity as a middleman.
● Free Transactions
Users can use LINO to show their appreciation for content through multiple methods, including micro-tipping, gifting, purchasing, and more; all value exchanges in the Lino community will occur through LINO.
● Inflationary Currency System
The inflationary model aims to create a sustainable digital content economy by incentivizing all community contributions including content creation, content redistribution, and infrastructure services.
● Proof of Human Engagement
Proof of Human Engagement, activities engaged in by real humans rather than bots, is a key component in the Lino ecosystem. Proof of Human Engagement is used to prevent bots from manipulating the reward distribution and prevent potential attacks such as the Sybil Attack.
● Proof of Content Value
We take the revenue generated from a content as its value reflected in the market. However, simply distributing rewards based on the literal consumption amount will not work due to potential fraudulent consumption, which is a serious concern because malicious attacks are rampant throughout the internet. We will take several measures to prevent the system from being flooded with fraud.
Any video stream service relies on a content delivery network (CDN). We believe in decentralized, peer-to-peer CDN, but current projects seem not ready for stability and costs. We propose a new way of providing decentralized CDN service through auction.
Lino stores video and live stream playback in a decentralized manner. Rather than creating another Filecoin, we use an auction approach to achieve decentralization. Each person can become a storage service advocator as long as he/she presents a proposal for any storage service that includes pricing and performance details.
