Kevin Chou discussed how content creators could build their own virtual economies with blockchain technology.
Kevin Chou, CEO and co-founder at blockchain ecosystem Rally, believes that blockchain technology could lead the charge toward a virtual economy in the web 3.0 era.
Speaking at Unitize on July 6, Chou, who is also involved with the firms Kabam, Forte and Gen G, said that content platforms should move away from the old business model of web 2.0 that consists of the platforms taking a large portion of the revenue.
Instead, companies should create a new and decentralized business model that favors influencers, creators, and “give away the governance to the community," said Chou.
He added, “The web 2.0 era of business models was very much about how I build a very large platform and give away the service for free but collect a bunch of that data.
