What is AmaStar?
Adult content has been around for centuries in forms of cave art, novels, print and films. The advancement of new technology brought the industry to a new level – the availability of porn is as widespread as ever, one can view the desired content in all shapes and forms with just a few clicks – photos, stories, clips, movies, live chats, etc. The high demand for this industry is undeniable – over a third of all Internet downloads are pornorpaphic, nearly one in four Internet search queries are porn-related and some adult websites beat giants like Yahoo, Wikipedia and Twitter in terms of monthly visitor numbers. While there is an infinite amount of genres in the world of adult entertainment, amateur porn is now practically a staple option; few categories have shown the same level of persistence and longevity in the market. The home-video revolution of the 1980s really kicked off its popularity, and development of digital cameras and the Internet allowed for an unprecedented level of low-cost, widespread distribution. Amateur porn lovers prefer it for a greater sense of excitement because of the ‘realness’ of it. It’s no secret that most of what you see in regular porn is fake – scripted scenarios, excessive makeup, plastic surgery – and more and more people choose to watch someone who’s doing it because they want to have sex and intimacy rather than a paycheck. We share the belief that it’s everyone’s right to create their own vision of erotic expression, and aim to make sharing it as effortless as possible.
Porn revenue is already larger than all professional basketball, baseball, and football franchises combined, and technological possibilities of today are bound to make this $100 billion industry expand even larger. We believe applying blockchain and its underlying principles of decentralization, transparency and anonymity will eliminate current issues with adult entertainment industry and facilitate its predetermined and unavoidable growth.
AmaStar aims to create an adult entertainment platform that will outperform all current projects in the industry. The main idea is to develop an ecosystem that benefits both end users and content creators, while rendering middlemen and intermediaries that take a lion share of the money obsolete. Imagine a live network where the customers choose what they want to see and play a vital role in sifting out poor quality content without any extra effort, while content providers are financially rewarded based on the popularity of their content. This system will motivate performers to provide better quality uploads, as it will directly affect their earnings. The adult industry has always been at the forefront of innovation, and we believe integrating blockchain will make it more secure, anonymous, fair and enjoyable for all participants.
Anyone can upload their own content – and get paid for it! Our unique algorithm will calculate the reward in AS coins for each content piece based on its popularity, including user ratings, number of views/clicks, length of viewing times, etc. Performers will also be able to receive tips from users that particularly enjoyed their content. Withdrawing the earnings is as hussle-free as it gets – the minimum is an equivalent of $5, which can be cashed out at any day of the month (no more waiting for payout days).
