Formless, Inc has launched the Beta version of SHARE, a protocol that provides digital content creators a way to distribute their music, video, podcast, and other experiences peer-to-peer using smart contracts.
With SHARE, creators gain control of the streaming terms, including price, while maintaining compatibility across multiple applications.
“This is the first time in history that we can distribute content at scale as a program. We can now imagine a future where digital content is available across multiple platforms––even those like Spotify and Instagram, and creators have full control over the access terms, such as pricing, royalty splits from streaming, and ownership sharing with their community.”
Since publishing the SHARE Whitepaper earlier this year, Founder and former Apple and Google Engineer, Brandon Tory, and the team at Formless have received grant awards from the Polygon DAO, Alchemy, Google Cloud, and Stripe.
Achievements include a full set of audited SHARE smart contracts with support on the Ethereum and Polygon blockchains and a decentralized application that leverages the power of SHARE.
“Releasing our SHARE Beta is a monumental milestone. We’re now looking forward to working with creators, developers, and distribution partners to leverage blockchain technology and make an even bigger impact,” added Tory.
