Dear COSers,

The Contentos Vietnamese community and creators of blockchain content have recently shared with me some insights they have gained from creating channels on COS.TV, organizing fan communities, and setting up of mainnet nodes. Most are delighted to have received returns exceeding 500%.

We are very happy that since the establishment of Contentos, we have been embraced and supported by the Vietnamese creator community. Vietnam has played a vital role in the booming blockchain industry in the Asia-Pacific region, housing some world-renowned Vietnamese projects e.g. TomoChain and KardiaChain, who happen to be partners of Contentos as well.

Dear COSers,

We are very pleased to announce that Contentos will be exploring the field of live stream e-commerce, and the very first step of this journey is a much anticipated partnership between Contentos and Origin Protocol.

In 2016, when I was the person in charge of the operation of an international live stream platform, I tried the celebrity e-commerce live stream function in the United States. At that time, the LiveMe team provided customized services for the personal e-commerce brands of live streaming celebrities with fan bases, in addition to ad sharing and live stream rewards. Internet celebrities would…

Creating a diversity of monetization methodologies for our creative community has always been a core focus of COS.TV and Contentos.

Dear COSers,

Making every act of creating meaningful” is at the heart of COS.TV’s product design thinking. Since the launch of current COS.TV minimum viable product (MVP), the number of organic users has reached 250,000 daily active users, and the Android App has been installed more than 240,000 times. These results show that COS.TV has a strong creative community and that there is a true market demand for our services.

In today’s content industry, these are three main monetization strategies:

  1. Platform advertising revenue distribution.

An example of this would be YouTube’s Partnership Program. As long as creators meet YouTube’s requirements…

To Dear COS believers,

Happy New Year!

Time really flies! 2019 is already coming to an end! Looking back, the Contentos team has slowly but surely pushed blockchain forward. With the support from our global community and investors, we have achieved extraordinary accomplishments!

[ Contentos Public Chain Development ]

Following our roadmap, the Contentos testnet launched on 3/27 and the code was made available to the GitHub community. The testnet has had 5 updates and has 4 connected dApps. We have successfully tested over 10k TPS, which is far ahead of well known public chains such as Ethereum, EOS, and TRON.

Contentos mainnet launch timeline

In the previous article, we talked about the uses of COS and the immense potential for growth it has. Now, let’s talk about how we can attain this attractive future for COS — with the Contentos main network launch.

The three layers of demand for COS

“What is the usage of your token? Why should I hold it?” These questions are not uncommon to many public blockchain projects, including Contentos and COS. Indeed, if the only demand for a token is just as a trading instrument in crypto exchanges, it won’t be a sustainable business. Any blockchain project should be able to represent the functions of their token with clarity, so here are the three main use cases of COS in the Contentos ecosystem. I call it the “three layers of demand.”

The role of Contentos in reshaping the future of content

There are four major roles in any content ecosystem.

1. Content producer

Any entity who produces content can be categorized under this role, it can be a professional production house or an individual content creator. Any content producer leverages its content to create the “influence power” among their audience.

2. Content consumer

Also known as the audience or the people who enjoy a form of content. By default, everyone is a content consumer in a content ecosystem. When a consumer watches a video, one is focusing their “attention” to this content. Attention is a limited and…

This is a question I often get. So allow me to borrow a few minutes of your time as I unravel the origin story of Contentos. I hope you have a fantastic time reading, as I had, writing this.

No origin story is complete without knowing who the characters are. So allow me to introduce myself and my background, first. My experience as a developer in the software industry started about 10 years ago. I used to work at “Trend Micro,” one of the leading security software companies in the world. …

Contentos CEO and cofounder Mick Tsai urges holistic vision to ecosystem growth

Dear COSers,

We started Contentos about a year and a half ago, in March 2018. Back then, BTC was worth USD$10K and ETH was still over USD$600. We saw many blockchain projects raise ambitious goals only to disappear later due to numerous reasons. A common one is due to unsatisfactory low token value which in turn made it difficult for their community support it. This reason created a negative feedback loop for teams as well — maintaining an upward price point for a token consumes precious resources and maintaining this uptrend could become impossibly costly to maintain. …

Libra, a stable virtual currency from social media giant Facebook, has finally arrived.

But is this new coin a threat to Contentos and COS? To find out, we first need to fully understand why Facebook introduced Libra and what it offers.

According to Libra’s white paper, its vision is to help the billions of adults who are excluded from traditional financial services, such as having bank accounts or credit cards, access those services. An affordable financial service system that requires only a smartphone and internet connection can help billions of people — especially those living in developing countries — receive…
