Fans/investors are issued social tokens, which represent a stake in the future earnings of the creator/ project and also get exclusive access to loads of fandom/ content perks, according to a release.
For the first time, there is an opportunity for humans to directly invest in fellow humans, it said.
Investors are also entitled to creator incomes which are distributed amongst token holders on a pro-rata basis, analogous to dividends in stock markets.
