Brooklyn, United States - February 13, 2018 /NewsNetwork/ —

Current Media has announced a revolutionary new streaming platform powered by Blockchain technology. By consolidating popular media networks into one place, Current already provides more than 200,000 users with a more convenient search and discovery experience. The platform allows users to be rewarded for streaming content from their favorite networks.

Using Current, users can stream content from Spotify, YouTube, SoundCloud, and more, and get rewarded for it. Users are able to get paid to stream their content with an all in one personalized experience.

Current, which counts tech heavyweight Mark Cuban among its initial investors, is creating a digital token that uniquely rewards a person’s time, money spent, and data shared during the media streaming experience. Once tokens have been earned, they can be spent on a range of products, services and in-platform advertising.

The platform combines behavioral data points surrounding the types, times and topics played by each person across multiple networks. This allows for better recommendations than what is available on any single network on its own.

Current recently elected to cancel its upcoming public token sale because they claim to have already received the equivalent of $150 Million USD worth of interest from private backers looking to participate in the private sale. “The amount of interest in our token sale has been nothing short of extraordinary,” Current co-founder and CEO Dan Novaes said in a public statement.

One of the primary benefits of the system is the fact that it’s powered by Blockchain technology. This ensures that there is fully transparent accounting, allowing for an instant valuation of time, data and attention.

The Current ecosystem is designed to evolve over time and will continue to provide the best streaming platform for its users. Current is the next generation of media streaming and consolidates the best content and features from the most popular media networks in an all-in-one experience.

Current states that: “The protocol rewards people for their time streaming, ad impressions and personal data shared. Launching initially on the Current platform, the protocol will open for developers and third-party providers to utilize.”

Anyone can earn CRNC, as it’s a simple, easy process whereby participants stream their favorite content through the Current Platform.

Full details of the platform and the launch can be found on the URL above.
