The company CEO RJ Mark Hain says that VRA has major advantages over its better-known competitor, its 100% of the revenue goes to content creators.
“The publisher has to get on board with using BAT for getting monetization by those rewards. What we do is entirely different. We don’t have anything to do with a browser. If you work for a large publication like Bloomberg, Bloomberg has a video player which is powered by Brightcove. […] And Bloomberg wants to have a reward, whether it be Crypto or anything else. They take our SDK, it takes them about a half hour to install it, and then they control the monetization of all of that, of everything that goes on inside of that video player and ad stack for themselves.”
Verasity is trying to capitalize on the COVID-19 induced e-gaming boom. In the future, they may expand to other games like chess and even globally popular sports like soccer and basketball.
