Whether on a personal or on a professional level - social interaction has been the most damaged by COVID global crisis. We may say, we have "life before COVID" - and "life after COVID." But what do all the good and bad COVID-stories have in common? Experience. A deeper human connection. Sharing.
And either in the good or the hard times, people always find a way to do just that. That's what Intoo TV is about: creating and sharing experience, on demand. When is needed. When the COVID crisis keeps us isolated one from the other. To let Social Distancing feel us closer to each other.
In a Nutshell:
Intoo is a p2p live-streaming network to design, share and monetize real-life experiences.
many people (for life or health-conditions) cannot travel the places that they like, and/or experience something they would like to do.
2. COVID Crisis / Social Distancing / Isolation:
Whether on a personal or on a professional level - social interaction has been the most damaged by COVID global crisis. We may say, we have "life before COVID" - and "life after COVID."Even basic daily-life actions, such as "gardening" "riding a bike" or "go to the market" may be extremely hard for many, and for others they may be irremediably different than the used to be.
3. Filtered information:
Except for what the official media (filtered communication) share with them, people have a hard time understanding what the situation is in other countries/cities in the world, or even in their own. This makes hard to discern reliable information from propaganda.
4. Canceled events:
Because of public health measures - performers, artists, Influencers, travelers, ..., had to cancel their tours and change their plans. These categories need a budget to keep sharing and producing their content, and their content has never been as valuable as it is during this global crisis. Surely for entertainment, but especially to keep and establish a genuine human bond, a connection.
Solutions & Steps:
Intoo TV makes it easy for everyone to "design" an experience they want to live in first person, setting up duration, location, and budget for it. Making them "guests" of someone else's real-life, unfiltered experience for a while.
Performers, creators, artists, or just regular people can "browse" the open experiences, and "match" with them in a Tinder-like fashion, based on their interests and their skills. Making them "hosts" of others, who cannot live that experience in first person.
3. Date & Tickets:
After the two parties agree on a time and date for the experience to happen, Guest & Host will receive an NFT-ticket with a unique QR-Code to join the event as a real-time broadcast for the date and duration agreed.
After the live-streaming event, the broadcaster will receive the reward/budget set!
Values & USPs:
1. Strictly one-to-one broadcast:
an unfiltered, real-life experience, from a person to the other.
2. Entirely customizable Live-experience:
the experience you want, anywhere in the world - with the duration, description, and budget you want. Realized specifically for you, in real-time.
3. Easy, and fun NFT generation:
just like selecting creating your own Pizza with Domino!
Intoo TV lets you be anywhere, at any time. Visit the world, through someone else's eyes.
How we built it
- React Native
- ERC-721 (NFT-tickets)
Chainlink VRF --> to generate unique QR-code for the ticket. Both to give a unique visual pattern to each event-ticket, and to add an additional layer of security by pairing user wallet IDs with the event itself)
Challenges we ran into
Integrating Web3 with React Native app. We consulted an exceptional library called react-native-anywhere!
Accomplishments that we're proud of
In roughly 5 days, and 3 people, we've been able to complete a fully functional React Native dApp!
What we learned
How to better integrate Web3 and React Native.
What's next for Intoo TV
- We'll launch our Store to let users purchase additional EXP tokens to design new live-experiences, interact with them, and tip hosts
- In 15 days (12th of October) we will launch a close-beta to start onboarding first real users and stress-test our application.
