The ASQ Protocol is a decentralized solution for publishing, storing, sharing, and monetizing digital content. The project envisions a new economy for content creation as well as a monetization model that favors creators instead of middlemen. The platform will allow creators to own the content they build, reach broader audiences, and receive fair and transparent remuneration for the content produced.
ASQ Protocol—a part of the ASKfm network—will launch with an impressive user base already assembled. This includes 215 million users from ASKfm as well as 45 million users who are part of the NING ecosystem. NING offers custom social network solutions for businesses and supports over 2 million online communities. Overall, ASQ Protocol will count on 21 million monthly active users at the start, though that number will continue to grow. In addition to the younger demographics that make up the core market, the platform includes a variety of influencers, bloggers, and content creators.
With over 100 million installs on both iOS and Android, ASKfm delivers ASQ a ready-made ecosystem that empowers creators to thrive and find the right market for their content. Moreover, the blockchain ecosystem, which allows for tokenization of services, lets users compensate creators with ASQ tokens. This provides an equitable compensation model that rewards both parties for their contribution.
