We also wanted to provide means for creators to personalize content & express freely while getting closer to their consumers. Blockchain technology will be at the heart of this platform and will give us a truly democratic platform,” said Nitin Narkhede, Founder – MinersINC.
“Great cinema is our collective legacy, but content needs to discover its true value and not become a victim of an archaic distribution system which limits audience choices instead of enhancing them. Our platform will create an engaging environment which will reward consumers for following their passion for entertainment,” said Deepak Jayaram (Deejay), Co-founder – MinersINC.
MinersINC is currently undergoing user-testing, and is expected to launch the platform for the ‘Indian at heart’ in the fall of 2018.
