About the Bounty
To be truly sovereign in the Information age as a creator means to have complete ownership over your content, its distribution and its monetization. Web3 allows us to move from the creator economy of web2 and power it up to the incoming Ownership Economy of web3. A world in which Content Creators can make content with complete sovereignty and own every single piece of the distribution and monetisation without having to pay the platform or any other corporation.
The goal of this bounty is to explore how far we have gotten in enabling a world which runs on the Ownership Economy. It is a deep dive into the current landscape of all the projects in web3 that are solving for decentralisation of content creation and distribution whether it is in written, audio, or video format as well as providing the tools for it.
This bounty is sponsored by Wordcel, a Decentralised Publishing Stack on Solana that aims to provide content creators as well as projects the freedom to create and own their long-form written content and distribution amongst their readers.
