In recent years, many Creators have begun to report publicly that their accounts have been suspended or banned on various platforms that benefit directly from user generated content. This has resulted in a dwindling number of platforms where Creators and Fans can meet, exchanging value for value. Creators lose access to their fanbase, Fans must seek out their favourite Creators on new platforms. Incomes are lost and enthusiasts are left wondering why they have lost access to content they paid for.

Creaton was born out of the idea that Creators should be in full control of the content they produce…


Creaton is a decentralized, subscription-based content sharing platform, enabling Creators to distribute their content to Fans directly using existing standards. In order to be fully decentralized, we had to replace each commonly used building block of a subscription platform with a decentralized protocol. In this post, we will describe how we have solved multiple aspects of this problem, working to empower the next generation of Creators!

The Backend

Any Web 2.0 content sharing platform — think of Twitter, Facebook, and Patreon — needs thousands of high powered computers to store, process, and retrieve user data. This means that the platform’s computers and…


Beginning in 2018 and extending into 2019, numerous reports began to appear of Creators having their account pulled down from various platforms like Patreon, YouTube, and others.

While some of the pressure was triggered by advertisers and payment processors, many Creators are adamant their content did not violate prior or updated Terms of Service. Many Creators did not, and still do not, receive a warning prior to a suspension or ban. For the privilege of using these platforms, Creators are expected to give up 20–50% of revenue to be treated in this manner.

As a result, we started to look…


Today, Creaton is pleased to announce a new partnership and integration with Superfluid, a new DeFi primitive protocol focused on automating recurring transactions to enable real-time finance. The vision of this partnership, born out of collaborating at ETHDenver 2021, is to expand and cater further to the Creaton’s grand vision of creating a decentralized content-sharing platform.

Financial operations like subscriptions, salaries, rewards, and any composable stream of value usually require many repetitive and expensive transactions to be processed on-chain. Enter Superfluid Protocol, an Ethereum based framework that creates transparency into the flow of the subscriptions, allowing a clear view into…


Last week was full of excitement, frustration and celebrations, we participated in the ETH Denver hackathon!

Purpose for the hackathon

In our experience with Creaton’s pre-release version, we realized that fees will be a huge problem if not taken care of from the beginning.

Therefore, we decided to test and integrate technologies that provided faster & cheaper transaction fees during ETHDenver.

We successfully integrated:

  • Polygon (Matic): A L2 solution that has faster & cheaper transactions than Mainnet ETH
  • Biconomy: Abstracting away blockchain complexities related to gas-efficient meta-transactions (users pay no gas fee)
  • Superfluid: Created a treasury architecture, enabling a small transaction fee while creators still directly get their income in real-time
  • NuCypher: Implemented policy sponsorship separation contract (The subscriber pays…


Introduction

We are pleased to share a strategic partnership with Creaton. This partnership is part of our BTSE Labs offering for projects qualified for our incubation program to help accelerate good projects in their potential and growth. BTSE Labs is helping Creaton both with partial funding of the project but also with our strategic disciplines and insight that helps projects excel.

The Creaton Platform

Creaton is a decentralized content sharing platform that is secure and censorship-resistant for all creators to have a platform to speak from. In addition, the content creators on Creaton are beneficiaries of their own work and…


The creator economy is growing to become the primary target market for blockchains and the cryptocurrency ecosystem, as one of the most promising applications of the next generation of the web. Giving back control of data to creators is a crucial challenge to address while building a content sharing platform, considering the de facto requirements of decentralization, trustlessness, and anti-censorship. How can users control who gets to see their content and capture value from their supporters without trusting a central authority? Despite the significant growth in decentralized payment and storage solutions, data access control management seems to be a missing…
