SHARE provides a content distribution engine for the Metaverse and the internet experiences of the future.
Formless, Inc. announced that the Share protocol for audio and video content distribution is now available on the Ethereum and Polygon testnet blockchains. The protocol changes the way music and other digital content is valued and distributed––giving content creators choice, and shifting how they get compensated for their art.
Formless Founder Brandon Tory commented, “What we’ve built with Share is a virtual machine, which contains both the experience and the rules of access to that experience, independent of any vendor. We call it a Pay-For-Access (PFA) smart contract. Conceptually we like to think of it as a digital vending machine where the owner chooses the terms of access, licensing, and distribution independent of the property on which the machine operates. In Web2 we fought to get products into vending machines that we did not own, but in Web3 we’ll place our vending machines on more properties.”
A publicly available beta version will be available later this year. Today, content creators and developers are invited to try out the first decentralized application that showcases the power of the protocol, and organizations and builders are invited to review the protocol documentation.
