“What makes BitMovio unique from other streaming video platforms like YouTube is that we're dedicated to enabling content creators to distribute their videos without bureaucracy or barriers,” said Simon Zhu, co-founder and CEO of BitMovio. “Creators can develop personalised channels on BitMovio with flexible monetisation and business rules. This enables them to instantly engage with their global audience and grow their fan bases, with superior economics, engagement and transparency that are enabled by blockchain technology and enhanced by ‘gamification’ elements such as our MoviBits virtual currency, features which are the driving force behind global entertainment success stories such as Fortnite and many others.”

Matt Heiman, MD of Diagonal View, added: “BitMovio shares our vision of enabling creators to develop bespoke pieces of content and then build an engaged fan base anywhere online. They bring an innovative approach to managing, distributing and monetising video content that allows us to drive new revenue streams while building new fan bases on the BitMovio platform.”
