Previously, you have read about the advantages of Wemark for photographers. Besides, the market opportunity is also described. In order to run the platform to support content creators obtain their right, Wemark uses an approach called decentralized approach which is explained below.
Do you know how many content creators and customers are there in the world? There are millions of content creators with billions of customers. However, not more than 100 companies control most of its distribution. Creators lose not only their rights to be able to fully control their content but they also lose big parts of their royalty. The decentralization for the digital content space is indeed required. A decentralized approach will enable creators to do transaction directly and through a decentralized market, other parties can work together to improve content discovery.
Decentralization is the core approach of Wemark. It will be done gradually, little by little, along with the maturity of blockchain technology. Later in the future, it is expected that full decentralization can be achieved. It is the time when all decisions are the community.
