What is MintMyStream?
MMS is a first-of-its-kind feature that allows users to save video clips from a recorded stream and create real-time NFTs of their content. The blockchain technology is built into StreamMyScreen, so users can easily be part of the metaverse revolution.
Where can an audience buy MintMyStream NFTs?
StreamMyScreen makes it very easy for creators to sell and share their NFTs with their audience. StreamMyScreen has its own dedicated Storefront where NFTs can be traded, sold and bought directly with a credit card. For people familiar with cryptocurrency, the StreamMyScreen Storefront is a Skale environment, which means it is gasless. Users will also have the option to sell their NFTs on Opensea, currently the largest NFT marketplace.
Why are NFTs so special for creator content copyright?
StreamMyScreen NFTs are not like the NFT collections you may see that grab unfortunate headlines. MintMyStream are like digital memories that individual creators make to share with their audience. For creators, the key to blockchain technology is it records an original copyright of work. If a user creates content, like an MMS NFT, the copyright is attached to the NFT. If the NFT is sold again later, the original creator will get paid a royalty while the seller gets the sale price. With MMS, both the creator and fan/seller benefit from the resale. Currently, if an StreamMyScreen NFT is sold and resold either on the StreamMyScreen Storefront or the Opensea marketplace, that copyright will remain unbroken, allowing the original creator an opportunity for unlimited royalties for their content.
Does StreamMyScreen work only for desktop streaming?
Currently, StreamMyScreen is for desktop streaming, but with user interest, a mobile version may be developed in the near future.
What new revenue features are planned for StreamMyScreen?
StreamMyScreen will create more ways for creators to monetize their streams directly. This may include creator-controlled ads, sponsorships and in-stream eCommerce, in both traditional currencies and cryptocurrency.

Since StreamMyScreen is built for the metaverse, new 3D, customizable studios are being developed. Soon creators will be able to stream inside immersive animated environments, like streaming inside of video games.
