In a statement, Republik’s CEO Daniel He expressed his excitement about the company’s plans going forward:
“For too long, individuals have contributed their time, creativity, and attention to existing platforms with minimal rewards. Republik is determined to revolutionize this by ensuring fair and equitable distribution of the community’s value.”
The CEO added:
“We are thrilled to have investors who share our vision and partners actively contributing to the development of a community-owned platform.”
In contrast to conventional social media platforms, Republik harnesses the potential of Web3 technologies to streamline monetization processes for online influencers and content creators while significantly diminishing the costs borne by the creators.
This approach enables creators to retain a larger portion of their earnings and introduces a token-based reward system for user interaction, referrals, and support of creators.
The startup is planning to issue a freely traded token known as RPK.
