Ecosystem Overview
Online content creators and educators have become a global phenomenon that requires a global solution. The e-learning vertical alone is expected to reach approximately $325 Billion within the next decade. The established e-learning trends in the marketplace are focused on categories such as programming; cybersecurity; gaming; cloud-based solutions; corporate MOOCs (massive open online courses); design; digital marketing; innovations in wearable technologies and learning management systems. As the growth continues, the top venture capital investment firms continue to invest heavily in e-learning platforms and businesses.


The Problems

First, how content creators get paid inconsistently and inadequately is a problem - particularly in the e-learning ecosystem. Currently, a content creator has namely two options to receive compensation for their services, either through an advertisement-sharing model or through a membership model.

Second, the e-learning landscape has been infiltrated with service providers that charge a substantial amount of fees and transaction costs. These costs typically range from 10% to 45%, which the service provider keeps. The fee schedule associated with the available processing providers is complex. YouTube and Facebook’s new "Watch tab" feature pays out only 55% of advertisement revenue of a creator’s content. While Google does not disclose what it pays, its AdSense partners' forums estimate that partners make between $0.001 and $0.005 a click - depending on what type of ads they run. This not only makes content creators' income low and consistently undefined, but it also makes income unreliable. The current payment environment makes it difficult for content creators' to generate substantial income.

Third, In order to generate income from online platforms, content creators and educators have moved to a membership format where they are paid a recurring monthly amount for content. Creators have searched for the ability to unlock alternative revenue streams through subscriptions and recurring patronage. “Lots of creators are relying on an ad-supported model,” said Patreon VP of data science and operations Carlos Cabrera during a recent interview with Variety. “That model is broken.” Therefore, educators have become heavily reliant on third-party payment processors like PayPal, membership-based platforms like Patreon and major credit networks.

Fourth, content creators have become heavily reliant on credit cards, third-party payment processors like PayPal, membership-based platforms like Patreon and direct-platform payment models like Lynda to process payments. As a result of this reliance and lack of payment processing alternatives, these content creators are paying substantial fees per transaction.

2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / Apocalypse Pete's Store Open for Business on: February 02, 2014, 04:22:16 PM
Apocalypse Pete's Store is now open.  We accept Litecoins, Bottlecaps, Doge, Cryptogenic Bullion, Digital Coin, World Coin, Mega Coin and IXCoin. 

Our primary merchandise at the moment is Steam Games and Gift cards.  Many of the gift cards are only available in Canada, but a lot of them can be used in Canada and the US.
 
Also looking into various Game items to sell.  Right now there are various packages from World of Tanks and World of Warplanes (North America Server).  If we don't have the World of Tanks/Warplanes package you want, just ask and I should be able to accommodate you.  If there are any other video games with micro transactions that can be gifted to peoples accounts, let me know and I will add them. 

Look forward to hearing from you.

PS:  The site is pretty much in Beta atm.  Just trying to get a bit of economy flowing though a few coins, and not doing this to make much money.  As sales come in, I will use the cash to improve the site, and possibly carry gift cards on hand so I can cut down costs.

The current address is http://bottlecapstore.weebly.com/

Also want to add, if you want me to accept any other coins, feel free to ask.  If they are on Cryptsy, I will look them up and see if they have much volume to trade them out.

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Alt cryptos and gaming sites on: June 23, 2013, 06:22:41 AM
Just something I was thinking of, that could REALLY put your alt crypto on the map.

Everytime I read about another Alt Crypto opening up, I always see "Gaming site in the works"  or a deal is being negotiated.  And everytime it ends up being the same 2 bit gambling site.  Some of the sites even look like they were programmed by high school kids for a school project.  That's not a gaming site.

I think some developer that really wants their crypto to grow needs to contact an actual gaming company, and see if they can get on the big list of currencies they take.  In the gaming world, Free to Play is becoming HUGE.  Many big companies are even forgoing making their customers pay for AAA games, that used to cost customers $60+, instead looking at microtransactions for payments.  These microtransactions are worth millions if not billions of dollars. 

Every gaming site I look at has a multitude of different ways for payment.  I am looking at Wargaming.com's website right now, and see all these options for getting the company money for microtransactions:

Visa/MasterCard/AMEX/Debit/Ultimate Gaming card/DAO Pay/InstaDebit/Skrill/HyperWallet/Western Union/PaySafe Card/UKash and Safety Pay.  A lot of these cards, the manufactures are paying huge fees in order to get the money transferred to them.  Notice how cryptocurrency is not mentioned in that list.  Yet it could be the currency that allows companies like Wargaming to decrease their payment fees. 

A side benefit.  A majority of gamers have decent GPU's in their computers.  They could in turn start mining, which they would more then likely be feeding back into the games they are playing.  It's a win-win for the gaming companies, since it would help increase the amount of money it is bringing in. 

There are many different companies just like this one sitting out there looking for new and cheaper ways of getting the funds flowing into their games.  Any developer that would talk to companies like these might end up scoring a win, and become a partner.  It shouldn't take to long to see what a huge benefit it would be for a coin to have a win this big. 

Just something to think about.   
6  Other / Beginners & Help / Is there anything I need to do to get out of this newbie jail on: June 20, 2013, 12:30:58 AM
I don't understand.  I have read it's 4 hours of surfing time and 5 posts.  I have 6 posts and 5.5 hours of surfing time.  Do I need to create a thread in the newbie section?  Which I am doing right now.  Or am I missing a critical step somewhere?
