What is HypeHop?
Why did you make it?
Why did you make it? We’ve been watching the media landscape and it’s become increasingly difficult to separate advertising from “real” media. Influencers sell their fans to the highest bidder and pretend to love this makeup or that product. Blogs hide paid content in plain sight. Viral videos pop up that are aimed at selling something. Enough. At HypeHop we believe these transactions should benefit both parties. You shouldn’t be fooled into clicking an add. HypeHop pays you a small amount of cryptocurrency for watching a simple video and the video creator gets a dedicated set of early-adopting eyeballs. It’s a win-win.
How does it work?
To view a video you must enter an active BTC address and activate your webcam. The video will begin to play and you must keep your eyes on the screen to receive the BTC. When the video is over we send the BTC to your wallet. It’s that simple. You can watch each video once per wallet and each video has a limited number of views.
How do I upload a video?
To upload a video simply click Upload, send your video file, and send the required amount of BTC to our wallet. Your video will then go out on the front page and onto our social media feeds. You (or anyone else) can “top up” videos if they run out of views.
Isn’t this a little weird?
Definitely. That’s why we like it.
Why are you using BTC?
Because BTC is the only cryptocurrency that allows sane microtransactions internationally. It may be an imperfect system but it’s the best we’ve found so far.
Can I pay cash?
Sure, if you convert it to BTC!
Why should I pay people to watch my video?
You currently pay massive amounts of cash to spam your videos on the front page of YouTube, Reddit, and other services. Why not spend just a little to get educated, early-adopting, crypto lovers who are excited to watch your video? Feel free to add surveys and links to your video description because we’re sure that your viewers will want to see more.
How does it know I’m watching?
We require you to turn on your web cam and our system watches your eyes as you watch the video. We do not keep this video but instead use it to ensure you’re watching all of the video. The goal is ensure you’re not cheating the system and it gives the video creators an understanding of your level of interest, mood, and attentiveness.
That’s not a question but yes, I guess it is. But it’s no creepier than surveillance systems that are following you constant. At least in this case you’re benefiting from the surveillance.
