FAQ

FAQ

What is Boosto?

BOOSTO is a protocol & social token. Developers use our protocol to build DApps for influencers, and then share the revenue. The BOOSTO Token is the currency that powers these DApps.

Why BOOSTO

The Modern Day App Store Is A Monopoly & YouTube Ads Suck!
The app stores can take up to 65% of a developers profits. The current monetization options for content creators are intrusive, spammy, and overall not fan friendly…coin shiling anyone?

BOOSTO solves both sides of this equation by bringing developers (makers) & influencers (creators) together.

Quick Summary

The modern Day App Store Is A Monopoly & YouTube Ads Sucks!

Apple & Google can take up to 65% of a developers profit, and if the apps conflicts with either of these company’s office politics then it will either be buried or not allowed on the platform at all. The modern day app store needs to be decentralized, but those who have tried have run into the problem of nobody using their store!

Content creators power the internet, however, their options for monetization are very limited. If a talented content creator wants to make a living they must run intrusive ads, or create sponsored content…like coin shiling.

BOOSTO solves both sides of this equation by bringing developers (makers) & influencers (creators) together. Developers make personalized DApps for Influencers. Influencers then send their subscribers to download these DApps. All revenue earned is split 50/50 between the maker & creator.

So then, Influencers now have a creative & non-intrusive way to monetize, and developers can now have a new source of income by creating DApps, as they will no longer have to worry about the use case, since each app is only marketed to that influencer’s subscriber base… and many of them have millions!

The app stores can take up to 65% of a developers profits. The current monetization options for content creators are intrusive, spammy, and overall not fan friendly…coin shiling anyone?

How does boosto work?

Developers use the BOOSTO protocol to build personalized DApps for influencers, whom then send their subscribers to download.

Why does this have to be on the blockchain?

Apple & Google have banned all personalized applications from their app stores. Influencers, celebrities, and even yourself are not allowed to operate any apps for personal use.

Wont Apple & Google block the DApps from their stores?

Of course they will. But it is a common misconception that applications need a supported app store in order to run. These DApps will work just fine on any internet browser; be it desktop or mobile.

Why do most decentralized app stores fail?

The reason most decentralized app stores fail is because nobody uses them. In order to be used, they first need to be found. But why would a user search for a new app store when they can just conveniently use the one that came with their phone?

Why will this decentralized app store be any different?

Our DApps are only marketed to an influencer’s subscriber base. So that influencer will actually send users to their DApp Store. We do not have to worry about users finding the stores.

Are there any other products currently trying to solve these problems?

When content creators wish to fund their channels without the use of ads or sponsored content they often ask their subscribers for USD donations via a Patreon.

How does BOOSTO compare to Patreon?

We view BOOSTO as a more advanced form of Patreon. When the fans power these DApps they are in essence donating funds to help support the creator’s channel. The key difference is that w/ BOOSTO the fans receive unique content in return for their support.

Why will Influencers choose you over Patreon?

Many content creators are able to fund their channels through solicited donations, however, we theorize that many more people would donate if they received something cool in return.

Is it possible to donate w/ BOOSTO?

Yes, a “donate me” button does comes standard on the homepage of every influencer store, and due to Patreon being limited to USD, some may find it preferable to donate w/ BOOSTO.

Do you view Patreon as a competitor?

Absolutely not! We suggest that all creators looking to fund their careers without the use of intrusive ads take advantage of both BOOSTO & Patreon.
