Greetings Communities, in this post I would like to introduce about Wemark project, and for more details let's just go to the following discussion:
Wemark is a leading independent photographer community that licenses their photos directly to customers, with no agents involved.
We are a group of makers, marketers, designers and engineers, with a passion for changing how content creators distribute their content and how they're paid for it.
Our platform uses blockchain technology to enable peer-to-peer transactions between creators and users - ensuring security, authenticity and, most importantly, transparency.
Wemark is supported by leading global investors, and its advisory board includes some of the top names in stock photography, blockchain technology, and the online marketplace.
Wemark is a different kind of stock photography market
License and download superb photos taken by professional photographers. From cheap photos to exclusive content - get photos at the best price. Supporting photographers - licensing photos directly from creators means they can retain more of their work.
Forget what you know about stock photography, Wemark is different.
Wemark is not a stock photo agency
Photographers license their photos directly to customers without intermediaries, so customers get a better price.
Photographers get more for their work
Wemark sets a new standard for stock photo royalty - photographers keep 85% of photo sale price.
A new level of transparency, powered by blockchain
The Wemark protocol, backed by the Ethereum blockchain, ensures a higher standard of transparency. All transactions and licenses are listed in the general ledger and become unchanged.
Digital currency is not credit
As the next generation platform, Wemark supports its own digital currency. Wemark Tokens allows both customers and photographers to be part of the economy and value of the platform.
