DECENT Launches Beta Release of DECENT GO, a Decentralized Marketplace for Digital Content

Oct 05, 2017

DECENT announced the beta launch of its DECENT GO marketplace, what it says is the first decentralized digital marketplace. The Beta version is being launched to gain feedback from industry professionals. DECENT had previously launched their desktop application for DECENT GO at the end of June and are now thrilled with the addition of marketplace functionality.

Built on DECENT’s blockchain-based content distribution platform, DECENT GO promises to offer a better deal for content producers and purchasers than the current industry giants. It will also give content producers more freedom and control over ownership and distribution.

As the distribution is via a peer to peer blockchain network - and does not rely on third parties - authors have the ability to upload their own content, assign it to a category, write a description of the content, choose its lifetime duration, and allocate its price and IP rights themselves. The fee for each transaction is transferred fairly and almost instantly to the artist’s account after each transaction; artists will no longer have to wait months before seeing a penny from their work.

In addition to DECENT GO wallet functionality they are launching digital distribution via Digital Content Token (DCT) within their marketplace. The first 400 users who create their account on DECENT GO will receive DCT in their wallet so that they can begin trying the platform, uploading content, choosing seeders, downloading content and reporting bugs. This will provide relevant feedback so DECENT can continue moving forward with development.
