WildSpark opens for Beta on June 30th. This is Synereo’s first major application for the attention economy. This will enable contributing Amp’s currency to content creators who have uploaded their material to the network. Additionally, a link is created to be shared with others. As they contribute and amplify, the money is shared across the creator and curators. It is a shared network where the community benefits through participation.
Synereo’s full roadmap can be found at http://www.synereo.com/learn-more/.
This looks similar to Steemit, but seems more like a pyramid payout tier, where a financial investment must be made and they the curator gets money from those they attract to contribute after them. So there are differences as Steemit does not require spending money to upvote.
Overall, this might be good to get more overall visibility to the world for such decentralized social platforms. The biggest hurdle is awareness and familiarization by the public. This is a massive market and there is plenty of room for many different platforms.
For those interested you can sign up for the WildSpark beta at https://www.wildspark.me
Beta users should expect a Google Chrome extension that supports YouTube as well as free AMPs to test the product: amplify favorite videos, reward favorite creators, and share links with others. Developers will invite users on a daily basis, as they gather feedback about the product.
