Content Contract

Composible Design

We believe that content creators should truly own their content and they should have the right to choose the content platform. For example, Tiktok videos are not available on Instagram unless the creators also upload their work to Instagram. In this manner, TikTok somewhat owns the creator's work. ReadON aims to decouple this process by creating a common distribution layer with a content standard.

The content contract will include definitions for titles, subtitles, format-standard for article bodies. It should be scalable to support videos, discussions, and future media formats as well so that content can be rendered in different styles and in different apps, but will still stay as one contract.

Content Owership

Ownership is a key focus for ReadON. While Mirror solves this problem for content created on its platform, it does not have a solution for the massive amounts of content on Web2.

ReadON’s solution is to create a new tool which will enable users to create a unique string that only he/she can make and will allow for proof of ownership to be easily verified. If the user owns the website, the string can be added explicitly into the content body, like a watermark. Otherwise, the string generation process can be done automatically in a piece of javascript and embedded into the original URL. ReadON can work with platforms like Medium to implement plugins that would automate the authentication process. This would enable any web2 publishing platform to function like Mirror.

Support for Private and Paid Content

Not every piece of content is public, no matter if it is in Web2 or Web3. ReadON will support data accessibility for private content and paid content to allow for ownership and monetization solutions within the content ecosystem.
