DESU is a membership platform where creators can monetize their content and build community with cryptocurrency, social tokens, and NFTs, all while interacting with their biggest fans.
DESU also provides a recurring subscription payment protocol that allows creators to receive recurring payments in a decentralized manner via immutable smart contracts.
The Problems with traditional centralized platforms:
- Centralized: Creators are at the control of centralized entities and can be demonetized and or de-platformed at the discretion of these centralized platforms and financial institutions.
- Payouts: Chargebacks! Creators receive a payment only to later see it charged back. Also, there are long hold times of funds and withdrawals to banks can take weeks.
- Fees: The industry standard fee that centralized paid social networks take is 20%. We believe the creator deserves more.
- Fundraising & Incentives: Current platforms lack new and unique methods for incentivizing and supporting creators. People who support and back their favorite creators have little to show for it. The supporters lack reciprocity. Creators also need new and exciting methods to entice their fans to support them.
How DESU solves these problems:
- Decentralized Recurring Peer to Peer Payments: DESU is a non custodial platform. Subscribers and Creators on DESU make payments directly to each other all powered by DESU’s recurring subscription payment protocol. Creators do not have to worry of demonetization when utilizing a permissionless platform like DESU, all smart contracts are immutable.
- Payouts: No long wait times! Pay outs are instant with minuscule transaction fees.
- Fees : Creators earn more than they would on traditional platforms.
- Fundraising & Incentives: DESU has built a proof of support model that rewards the creator’s OG supporters and gives them even more incentive to back them. Through this proof of support model, supporters receive rewards which can be utilized to gain access to live in person events as well as metaverse events, token gated communities, content and more!
