AirPorn.io (Airporn Platform White Paper)
Airporn is the first blockchain-based solution to many problems in porn industry. Follow us on Twitter so you won’t miss any latest news about our ICO!
Airporn is the first adult entertainment platform powered by blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Content producers (publishers) publish the videos onto the Airporn platform, and consumers are charged for watching the videos. Both the producers and consumer are paid and charged with the Airpon XXXtokens.
The Airporn platform is trying to solve the common pain point endured by both porn producers and the consumers. For indie porn producers, it is important for them to separate work from real life, thus hiding their identities is crucial but often hard to implement. If the payment processor gets hacked bank account information and identities can be exposed. For the end-users, the endless ads and phishing links popping out of the porn site bothers them and put their personal info at risk. Even for paid porn site, they are risking their credit card info being stolen or misused.
The Aiporn platform tries to solve the above problem with cryptocurrency payment and incentive design. The porn producers post video contents on the Airporn platform and are paid for each view of the video with the Airporn XXX token. The consumers get an ad-free adult video site by paying a relatively small fee to the producers. There are several benefits with the model:
For end users (consumers)
- Privacy: Since all payment are paid with XXX tokens instead of credit card. You never have to worry about your credit card info being stolen or risking your credit card statement being seen by your spouse or girlfriend. We will not ask users to register either.
- No ads: Since you paid a few tokens for each video you watch, you don’t have to see or click any ads at all. Airporn will always remain ad-free.
- High Quality and Accessibility: Users can access to high-quality videos on Airporn because the producers are paid properly to produce one. As more publisher and producers join Airporn, Airporn will have the most complete porn collection in the world, making them easily accessible to the user.
For content producers (Publishers, Indie/Homemade porn producers)
- Privacy: Produce videos and get paid without giving out your true identity, payment is received with crypto currencies (XXX Tokens), and can be converted to fiat through major exchanges.
- Get Paid (and get paid faster): End-users only have to pay a small amount of tokens on each view. Thus they are incentivized to pay fee for high quality contents on the platform, instead of looking for pirated porn videos on the internet. The publishers can benefit from these payments instead of having the pirated videos sites earn money with their content. With XXX token, the producers are also paid faster as the smart contractautomatically pays dividends to the producer. Airporn can not hold or delay the fund.
- Transparency: All payment and profit sharing record are recorded on the Ethereum blockchain, which is publicly visible but anonymous as the true identity can not be linked to a given Ethereum wallet address. For more details please take a look at the Profit Sharing Model section.
Airporn leverages the advancement of the blockchain technology to make payment anonymous and secure between users.
Crowdsale and Token Contracts
Aiporn XXX tokens are ERC20 compliant tokens, which can be sent and received by all major Ethereum wallets that support the ERC20 token standard. The XXX tokens will be offered in Airporn’s ICO (Initial Coin Offering), which can be exchanged by sending Ethers to the ICO contract. Airporn uses a separate token contract for distributing ERC20 tokens to keep the token contract simple and less prone to hacks. The ERC20 contract implementation comes from the popular solidity contract library zeppelin-solidity, which is proved by a lot of other ICO to be safe to use.
Video Storage and Streaming
Airporn uses the Google Cloud Platform as the cloud provider, which provides the most reliable and fast infrastructure. Initially, the video files will be stored on Google Cloud Storage. Later on, when the video grows in volume, Airporn will consider migrating part of the video files onto the Ethereum Swarm distributed storage. The video files will be stored encrypted on the Swarm distributed storage, and Google Cloud Storage is used as a cache for regularly accessed video files. Since Swarm is DDOS-resistant, zero-downtime, fault-tolerant, and censorship-resistant, it guarantees our video data is saved safely on the Ethereum network. Uploading contents to the swarm network require us to pay Ethers to the network, thus part of the raised Ethers will be used for pushing video files onto the Swarm distributed storage.
Profit Sharing Model
All transaction occurred on the Airporn platform is executed through the transfer of XXX tokens. Tokens are paid to a smart contract powered by the Ethereum platform, with a dividend to both Airporn and video producers. The dividend ratio is agreed between the video producers and Airporn on initial signup and enforced by smart contract. All of the contracts and transactions are transparent and trackable on the blockchain. Any third-party can inspect the records to make sure their favorite model/producers get paid.
Since the payment amount on Airporn will usually be small (so called “micropayments”), the Airporn platform also allows a user to batch the payment by deposit some of the XXX tokens onto the platform. The payment to producers will still be made through smart contracts.
The Ethereum raised in Airporn’s crowdsale will allow us accomplish a few things. One portion of the Ethereum will go towards finalizing the platform (including paying for Swarm storage). Another portion of the Ethereum will go towards improving the content of the platform. The rest of the Ethereum will be used for operating expenses. Please see timeline below for goals and milestones.
