What's the Bolt+ Web3 Experience Like for Game Streamers Like Paul Prinsloo?
Traditional streaming options are rather limited, and most new content creators lean towards the same platforms their favorite streamers use. But as the interests of digital natives change, the tools, features, and opportunities offered by well-known streaming platforms have been found wanting. Even a seasoned content creator like Paul has long been on the lookout for new platforms on which to connect with his audiences. That’s when he found a brand new one in an unlikely place.
“I saw Bolt+ in one of Binance’s promotional emails and it said, ‘Bolt is now partnered with Binance.’ I thought, what’s this?!”
In the short time Paul has been streaming online games on Bolt+, the rewards have been flowing in abundance. The culture of tipping and gifting is becoming more well-established, and the immediate, secure nature of the transactions via Binance Pay is proving incredibly convenient for both users and content creators.
"The experience of going live has been relatively seamless," Paul says. "The advantage of Binance Pay is already huge. With Binance Pay, boom — you get it, and you can use it!"
While most streaming platforms take almost half of a streamer's donations in fees, Bolt+ allows people to begin earning immediately regardless of the number of followers and returns 95% of earnings to its content creators. Plus, with Binance Pay, streamers can immediately access the revenue they've earned.
