BitTube is a privacy coin that is based on Monero. Because of this, BitTube has Monero’s privacy aspects to it called RingCT.

BitTube’s goal is to create a decentralized video service where there are never any ads. They want a platform that is always monetized for the publisher and always advertisement free for the user, whether its a video or a live stream. They are also using IPFS which allows for the videos to not be hosted in a centralized data center, but across the globe on many different systems. They also retain 30% of every mined block for their air time service.

AirTime℠ rewards users and publishers.

Every user running the extension generates AirTime. This rewards them for the time they spend on any web page. The publishers of these pages, including social accounts, earn based on the total AirTime from each visit. Payouts are distributed at a variable rate across all concurrent users globally in real-time.

When a user visits a publisher new to the extension, the system will instantly create a dedicated wallet for that account. Webmasters will be able to install a native AirTime module that enables all users to generate AirTime for their domain, with or without the extension installed. This liberates publishers to monetize their platforms without ads.

AirTime monetizes users and publishers anywhere while browsing the web. It ensures that users no longer have to worry about harming someone’s revenue when using an ad blocker. Publishers will be free to design the best ad-free user experiences without distracting their audiences away from their pages. It is a mutually beneficial, revolutionary win-win solution.
