About Flixxo

In the last years Blockchain came to disrupt many industries and entertainment is just witnessing the beginning of that process. Flixxo has developed its own cryptocurrency called FLIXX, that works as the fuel of a p2p CDN. On Flixxo every user lends his/her storage space and bandwidth to become “seeder” of content, being rewarded by the author of such content. If the user ran out of FLIXX - needed for watching videos - he can also ask to be served with advertising, receiving more FLIXX from the advertiser itself. Advertisers buys FLIXX from content creators - paying in USD, EUROS or Bitcoin - creating a full economic system.
