Pumped is the first and only platform that guarantees 100% ad revenue for publishers at zero cost and pays readers for reading news! While movie and music distributors like Netflix and Spotify have established successful subscription-based revenue models, online news publishers have struggled to replicate their success and are thirsty for platforms outside the dominant duopoly of Facebook and Google to attract new traffic. Pumped connects digital news publishers and readers to monetize content seamlessly and rewards readers for their attention and consumption. The Pumped ecosystem has been designed in collaboration with major international news publishers to shape the future of news.
About the Developer
MulTra GmbH, the company that has developed the Pumped ecosystem, was founded in 2014 and is based in Frankfurt, Germany. Its clients include Deutsche Bank, Samsung, Huawei, BMW, GlaxoSmithKline, Lenovo, Johnson & Johnson and many more. In 2015 and 2017, MulTra GmbH’s digital products received multiple awards from the European Commission for their innovative strengths and impactful nature. MulTra GmbH is a member of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance.
The New Content Economy
Online News publishers made the historic mistake of not convincing consumers early-on that quality content deserves a fair remuneration. Pumped provides the opportunity to not only correct this mistake but to change the way we consume news.
The Pumped App uses machine learning to connect publishers and readers to create a new content economy in which both are seamlessly rewarded for their publication and consumption. Publishers earn 100% ad revenue while readers are paid for reading, curating and engaging with news from the Pumped App. This new content economy is powered by the MulTra Token (MTT), which serves as the fuel of the Pumped ecosystem.
The Future of Digital News
Pumped is a for-profit business and is in the business of profiting others. It promotes high-quality news sources and silences sensationalism and agenda-driven fake news. It is not just free for everyone to use, it pays everyone for using it.
Publishers are seamlessly signed up through their RSS feeds which are beautifully displayed in the Pumped App for readers to consume news. It utilizes machine learning to understand consumer preferences, so consumers can consume and engage with their preferred content types. Readers are rewarded with MTT for reading, curating, sharing and engaging with the news content.
Earned MTT can be used to pay for premium subscription-based services provided by news publishers, traded on crypto exchanges for their market value or used for different services on the Pumped Partners platform. This way, readers make money with their own attention, instead of others making money off them.
Join Pumped - the new content economy!
Shape the future of news by joining the Pumped Initial Token Offering and purchasing your tokens at a highly discounted rate before the MTT are listed on the crypto exchanges in 2018. As adaption and popularity increase worldwide for the first platform that pays for reading news, so will the value and circulation of the MTT. Pumped's popularity will dramatically increase with catchy marketing headlines like "Get Paid for Reading News", bringing millions of people into the crypto world for the first time with MTT as their first crypto-currency.
I agree with the premise of supporting publishers by allowing them to monetize their. I strongly disagree with the idea that if the news did not come from a 'traditional' media source that it is fake. Alternative sources of information are critical to balancing additional checks and balances upon the traditional media sources.
i do not like the platform model.
I do not see this as a good investment.
The whitepaper is very practical in the sense it provides a clear cut idea of the business model, also the technical depth of the team coupled with a detailed analysis of the market and an innovative idea proves the high potential of the ico.
Since i dont think is good ico, btw:
Financial, they give token whit more 50% descount, is my personal warning...
I don’t consider this project a good investment. After studying the white paper and landing page there’re a lot of questions left. Doubt that this product will be in demand
Really talented team. The vision is really simple so not so surprised about it, but the product thanks to his simplicity, it's also really interesting and could be attractived from many common investors and traders.
Team doesn't appear to have strong blockchian experience. The only person from blockchain space is an advisor who on his profile has "Head of Marketing". There appears to be good presence of advisors with other areas of business.
The marketing itself is not very visible. No activity on Bitcointalk and less than 1000 members on Telegram.
There are various projects in this space and standing out will be not easy.
A very controversial project.
A team with good willings and a great vision of what may become the field of Online News. The project and its details are really amazing
I am confident that news should be totally free, and the online News are easier to get day by day
My personal take is too many projects are trying to do content creation-reward platforms, some of which are Tron, Basic Attention Token.
Googling the term yielded even more projects.
The problem such projects want to tackle is indeed pressing yet from the video materials and whitepaper I could not convince me that the pumped solution is vastly different to other content monetization projects
This is a good step in the right direction for Blockchain project, in the end the data/content we all produce should have the ability to be monetized by us. However we get everyone to that point is good.
Very detailed and carefully drafted token offering document with comprehensive information and disclosures about the project. The project seems to have a capable team and realistic roadmap.
I tend to agree with Bogdan who did a review of this.
I repeat, blockchain is not a panache, please stop behaving as if it is so.
Team: Blockchain experience is visibly lacking.
Vision: This isnt unique. Peter Sunde did similar things, thru Flattr.He is doing something similar again. Not sure what difference blockchain makes, except for, probably faster payment processing.
Product: Initial promise is good, delivery matters.
