The AirTime extension explained

BitTube’s monetization model is called AirTime.
It is an ad-free solution paying users and publishers based on the time spent
watching content. This system is currently live on the video platform.

This extension enables AirTime to run anywhere on the web. It pays TUBEs to users
and publishers (websites, social accounts, merchants etc.) based on the time spent
on any web page. It includes an integrated wallet, ad blocker and referral system.

The extension has special support for popular platforms, allowing users to monetize their
own social accounts such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. It embeds instant donation
buttons on these platforms to tip users with a single click. The system generates wallets
for every new publisher automatically, and informs them about their earnings from AirTime
and donations. Additionally, webmasters will be able to monetize their own website,
using a special module that tracks their guests’ AirTime (who themselves do not have
the extension). Finally, we're working on being able to buy TUBEs through the extension
directly at market price, having no dependence on exchanges to buy into the ecosystem.

The goal of BitTube is mainstream mass adoption through simplicity, accessibility
and an easy user experience. TUBE is the lifeblood of the ecosystem and for any
currency distribution is vital. Usage means value. The strategy with the extension
is spreading TUBEs in as many (unwitting) hands as possible to reach millions of people.
This will introduce more and more users to the BitTube ecosystem as a whole.

Demand by design

The extension rewards users for browsing the Internet. It means that you will always
always carry a nonzero TUBE balance, which can be spent anywhere TUBE is accepted. In practice,
through the AirTime extension, it turns TUBE into a recurring source for shopping discounts and
donations. One of the big challenges is not letting TUBE succumb to its own inflation.
We must create strong demand so that its price grows according to its utility.

Now, here is the clever part. When choosing to make a TUBE payment, our upcoming gateway
will allow you to top off any insufficient balance automatically during checkout, the additional
coin being purchased (i.e. creating buy pressure) by us on the market. For example, say you’re
buying a $100 gift and you have $10 worth of TUBE from browsing the web. During checkout,
$90 worth of TUBEs will be bought at market price to settle the payment automatically.

This is demand by design. Not to mention all the utility AirTime can potentially add to games
and mobile apps, for instance as universal in-game currency and microtransactions.
The possibilities are endless and they are real.

WooCommerce Payment Gateway

To kick things off, we have developed a payment gateway for WooCommerce, which is a widely used e-commerce plugin for WordPress.

In planning stages (feedback always welcome!):

  - Debit card (Mastercard). Waiting for regulatory approvals (Bafin).
  - Staking to unlock platform features and AirTime levels.
  - Borrowing and lending options between users and big stakers (investors) in return for AirTime.
  - Hosting persistent video nodes (IPFS+torrent): selectively host videos in return for a share of their AirTime.
  - Fundamental features for the new platform, decentralized moderation system (for rewards), account progression/reputation system.
  - Prize pools for top creators, investors and referrals.
  - Platform features & much more Smiley
