Developers can easily build decentralized applications for video, music, photos, and so much more using the platform. Though the protocol, ARA provides developers with a network of self-contained file system archives that allows for secure storage, transmission, and access with lightning fast delivery. One of the many benefits of building on ARA includes gaining significant savings on streaming and bandwidth costs, while also giving users the highest quality streams.
Large revenue splits and transaction fees are some of the biggest hurdles for creators today. With ARA, creators have the ability to distribute their content directly to consumers, removing the need to pay royalty fees to middlemen. In the system, creators own their data and ensure their content is secure and the ownership is immutable. ARA also gives creators a decentralized, universal wallet to receive payments across all applications with no bank fees.
In the ARA ecosystem, consumers completely own their identity and data, and similar to creators, they receive the benefit of managing a single digital, universal wallet. Through this profile, users can support and purchase content from their favorite creators, games, and publishers. When people join ARA or an ARA-enabled application, they get rewarded with tokens for participating in the system and delivering files. They can then use these tokens to get more content or exchange with friends.
