Typerium is a decentralized content creation platform, social media and marketplace that fights piracy.

How it works:

The company’s vision is to protect intellectual property of content creators, while creating a decentralised marketplace for digital content.

Typerium develops Type Protocol app that links content creators with buyers in a transparent environment. Using blockchain allows the company to make signing contracts way easier and cheaper as well as to track intellectual property rights and control piracy.

Content creators that distribute their products through Typerium get to keep more from the sale. Each time a product is sold, owners of intellectual rights receive 85% of the cost. The payouts are faster due to using smart contracts.

In the ecosystem that Typerium creates, users will be rewarded by TYPE tokens for their contributions to the social network and reviews. Anyone can be a creator, share and sell their digital goods to people across the world, connecting with them via Typerium social media.

To maximise security of its users, Typerium develops a reputation system for both sellers and buyers.
