VideoCoin to Pay ‘Zombies’
The VideoCoin Network is a decentralized video encoding, storage, and content distribution system that turns all cloud-based video services into an efficient algorithmic market running on a new blockchain with a native protocol token, the VideoCoin (VID).
VideoCoin is will focus on encoding, storing, and streaming video, while tapping into zombie servers, which are idle or underused computers in data centers. According to some estimates, an estimated 20 million video-capable internet servers go unused every day while sucking up tons of electricity, translating to $30 billion in wasted capital investment.
