Part Time Music Curator

What is Current?

Current is a new type of streaming platform. Today, most media services utilize their user’s personal information without rewarding anyone but themselves for the gained insights which come from that data. We see this void as an opportunity to create a win-win solution for our user's willingness to exchange information. We gamify the consumption experience and reward users for their time, data, and attention while consuming their favorite content types. We curate the best in music, video, and more into an immersive and rewarding experience.

We’ve integrated blockchain technology into our platform to help spread value in the media industry. Our protocol tracks contribution to the platform in three key ways:

User growth and K-factor Access to data customized by the user to his/her liking which may include social media accounts, shopping preferences, location information, streaming preferences, calendar access, etc. Interaction with advertisers and partners

The more time the user spends on Current, the more they can earn. Our goal is to use a passive behavior, media streaming, and turn it into an actively beneficial activity. We believe the most important assets we own as humans are our attention and data.
