Yesterday I was informed by @starkerz (co-owner 3speak) that today is my opportunity to use the 3speak account to give away upvotes to commenters of my post!
What a cool feature!
Once a month a person from the top30 leaderboard will get that opportunity.
I didn't want to let the opportunity slide but I also wanted to try to generate some decent comments today.
So I'd like to hear what do you think of 3 speak so far?
Here's my take.
As a content creator I really like the uploader, it works every time. Playback works 95% of the time (sometimes a video stops (often only once) and you have to move the slider past the point to make it play further).
The quality of the videos is perfect.
I like the business model. It's not a free platform. You have to pay a monthly fee to use it and also pay extra if you want to upload more than 2 hours of video a month.
They are currently also busy with advertisements to generate more revenue for the content creator and themselves.
I like the free speech angle. It's nice to have a platform where you can speak freely. Although I'm not always a fan of using that in a political sense all the time. No doubt there is a market for it but it's not always for me.
What I like about the free speech angle the most is that it takes away the fear of saying something wrong 'by accident' and getting banned for it.
This is one of the fears that Twitch streamers have. Say one thing 'live on air' wrong and have someone report it and you can get banned or worse have your advertisement (revenue) taken away.
What I also would like to see is more diverse content in the top 30, like more BBQ channels and gaming channels.
Yesterday I saw a Livestream on 3speak by @theycallmedan. Livestreaming is something they are going to focus on and I'm looking forward to it.
The donation model (with the platforms own SPEAK token) could really shine in live streams and attract new content creators.
Let me know in the comments what you think of 3 speak. The best comments will get rewarded!
