DECENT, a Swiss startup developing a peer-to-peer content distribution platform, today launched a web application prototype that gives it an opportunity to test its platform prior to its official launch. The publicly available prototype will be a first look at the user interface which allows the use of DCT tokens to buy, share, stream, and rate content.
The DECENT prototype includes content publishing and buying, author/content rating, account creation, and article search engines. The prototype will also allow users to connect their profile with their public social media accounts, such as Twitter and Facebook, with full access to their followers. The prototype will hold all of the profile information in an online wallet that allows users to send and receive DCT coins across the network.
Director and co-founder of DECENT Matej Boda said: “Our prototype is a final step on our path towards providing the world with a revolutionary platform that protects privacy, prevents piracy, and makes digital content sharing easier, safer, and cheaper. We have received acclaim from early users who have tested the prototype so far, and look forward to commentary from the public so we can continually improve. User-friendliness is the most important factor for us because mainstream adoption is our goal. To that end, our mission is to remove every pain point for content consumers.”
DECENT have recently inked multiple international business partnerships, including with Polish mining giant coinmine.pl, and Fastweb, which is one of China’s leading internet Content Delivery Network (CDN) providers. “Even before we launch, DECENT’s network is growing with incredible speed. Companies with valuable content are the first to see the value and capability of the DECENT platform. We have spent years conceptualizing, planning, and building the foundation for DECENT, and now the finish line for the ICO is in our sights,” said Boda.
DECENT is now in the final week of an ICO and has already raised over 5760 BTC (about $4.2 million), with only days to go until November 6, when all DCT tokens will be fully distributed. The prototype will showcase the workings of the DECENT platform before blockchain storage is activated in 2017.
