Crowdfunding Corner: Bond.pm

Bond.pm Seeks Content Creators to Join Upstart Film Platform

Some news from Bond.pm.  Bond.pm! On June 27th, they be kickstarting our alpha-version of the Bond Film Platform, and teaming up with StartEngine to launch our crowdfunding campaign!

For content creators sick of getting YouTube money, and never getting a Hollywood mogul on the phone, we are issuing an open call to join us in building a platform which will pioneer the global future of video streaming and entertainment. We welcome talented, unique, popular and original creators who will build their new homes on Bond and will grow their communities with us.

“letting fans support their favorite actors and directors without middlemen - and potentially even own a chunk of movies or TV shows themselves”
-Wired  

The first version of the Bond Film Platform will provide the basic needs of users and creators to launch their channels. Creators will be able to upload content and invite their fans and followers to our platform and offer stakes in their channels to their followers, or even lease those stakes to them for a designated period of time.

“aiming at the sweet spot between YouTube and Netflix”
-Variety

StartEngine allows funds for new businesses to come from the same people who will eventually reap its benefits: the public! It serves as a Kickstarter for dozens of startups and businesses in the U.S. and will help us reach our financial goal. With the launch of Bond’s campaign on StartEngine, all our supporters will soon have the chance to support us with their investments.

And to show our appreciation for artists and filmmakers, we have an awesome offer to the first 50 creators who will join the Bond platform! We will give each creator 100K BFP tokens as a welcome gift! (initial price of 1 BFP = 10 US cents) Ready to join our project?  Visit www.Bond.pm to be part of the future of content!
