WESHARE live stream creator platform with NEAR Wallets, NFTS, Crypto Rewards and Blockchain Stream Encoding

WESHARE – is an innovative live stream creator platform for equitable monetization of creative content from live creators – i.e. musicians, performers, instructors, live painters and more.

WESHARE will use the NEAR Protocol to implement NFTs, digital wallets and crypto rewards to users and creators who join the platform. WESHARE also utilizes peer-to-peer blockchain based live stream encoding to provide low cost streaming to our creators. We will also develop a DAO platform for creating an equity pool for creators who bring value and build community on our platform.


More music, video and art is being created than at any time in human history, yet creators are making less money for content than ever before. For example, the average Spotify artist makes $12 a month, the average Patreon creator makes $4 a day; and a performer live streaming a concert to 20,000 fans on Youtube or Facebook makes less than $40 in revenue. That’s’ the equivalent of 1/5 of a penny per ticket.

So Today, millions of creators are looking for a platform with effective and easy-to-use tools to generate equitable revenue.


WESHARE is a platform built by a team with decades of experience in live events, technology and marketing. Our Creator Channels include multiple forms of monetization including recurring subscriptions, NFTs (video, audio and graphic), ticketed online events, video on demand, digital downloads, tipping and donations and more.

WESHARE has four main content areas

  1. Creator Channels – subscription based live stream channels with NFT storefront
  2. Online Events – in partnership with Burning Man, Shift Network, Emmy Awards and more – to include NFT collectibles and tickets
  3. In-Person Events– in partnership with Eventbrite, Ticketmaster, Meetup, Bands in Town – a geocoded real world events search engine
  4. Communities – fully featured user created online communities with social wall, conferencing, direct messaging and more


  1. February 2022- completion of Live Stream platform for creators – built in highly scalable Next.js, the WESHARE system includes an array of monetization features and social tools.
  2. February 2022 – initial integration of NEAR Protocol for various blockchain functions including minting and selling NFTs, NEAR wallets and crypto rewards
  3. March 2022 – robust user testing and initial artist onboarding and contracting
  4. May 2022 – completion and launch of NEAR integration for minting NFTs, Near Wallets and Crypto rewards.
  5. July 2022 – Full scale marketing launch including NEAR integration
  6. Fall 2022 – launch of WESHARE DAO for creator equity pool


In a time where creative content has been de-valued by hyper-extractive technology platforms - and user data and has been abused for mass profit, WESHARE represents a major disruption of the status quo. Our promise to our community is that those who create value on our platform will get a fair share; and the communities our creatives build can trust that we will respect and protect our members data sovereignty.

Hey @David_NEAR nice to meet you! We submitted the proposal just last night, so hoping to get funded within the week. Thanks for the props on WESHARE, we look forward to working with NEAR and HUMAN GUILD to make great things happen in the coming months. :slight_smile:

No doubt you guys will deliver something awesome!

Hey your proposal is very interesting, I’d like more info about the involved people if possible, d your marketing CEO and creative team have profiles or website to understand your background?
The main code for the project should be on github, does anyone in your tech team have a github profile to link to their name here?
This way we may submit problems or help you out on github if needed, directly on the code.
Would you please update the forum posts with these info for the DAO to consider?
Thanks for your proposal!

(post deleted by author)

The Forum will not allow me to post the GitHub links for the team. It actually marked my post as spam when I added the links. I could DM the info to you?

I have shared all the team and Github details with Sasha, and can also DM them to any members who are interested.

Hey, as mentioned in our DMs this should be sorted now

@jilt I have added the information you requested to the post now that David lifted the link restriction. :slight_smile:


If anyone had difficulty accessing the GitHub, it is now set to public for your review. My apologies for posting without changing setting. Excited to be part of the Near experience. :slight_smile:


Hi there, looks like a great project! I have a couple questions.

Can you give more detail on what you will be giving as “equitable monetization?” I.E. Will the artist get 80% of their total earnings on the platform? Will you be taking 3% of every transaction? Or something similar?

Do you plan on storing NFT data on chain, on IPFS, on Arweave, or some other way? Will artists retain 100% ownership of all content created on Weshare?

Are you onboarding developers from other chains like Solana as well to give artists a choice of which crypto to accept, or will Weshare be 100% Near exclusive?


Thanks you great questions. As a preface I want to include that unlike Patreon, WESHARE will include native encoding, hosting and CDN for live streaming, as well as native VOD storage and delivery, and NFT minting, live chat, social feed and more. So creators won’t have to join multiple services such as Vimeo Premium (costly) to live stream or youtube to host private videos behind paywall. To have all of WESHARES functions on Patreon a creator needs to join 4-6 other platforms.

The goal is to simply sign up and launch your subscription service and go live straight from your browser or OBS like software. So the service is sort of a morph between the network effect and live streaming capabilities of Twitch and the fundraising tools of Patreon, with the addition of an NFT capable shopping cart like Shopify, all in one place.

To offer these capabilities we can’t offer the 5-12% rate of Patreon (which is why Patreon also can’t include any of these native functions), but we can vastly beat the 50/50% offering of Twitch.

Our models we are running right now include two tiers, one which includes scalable native live streaming and video hosting plus all other functions, and one that is more of a NFT and downloadable product shop with limited live stream hours/functions. For the subscription service including scalable live streaming we are looking at creators retaining 75-80% of revenue, and for the non live streaming focused service 90%+. Individual NFTs and downloadable products will also be more of a 90-95% to the creator, and 100% of tipping and donations will go to the artists or the cause they promote on their channel.

Question 2: We are diving into the NFT storage plan and as of now the plan is to store the NFT data on chain and privately host the art files. Artists will retain 100% of the rights, and our site is GDPR compliant so all users and creators have the ability to download their history and files in a few simple clicks.

Also, Our platform is built with data sovereignty and a respect for privacy, and thus our business plan is built on peer to peer community support through subscriptions and products, rather than data farming and advertising like most social media.

3: For the last question our NFT and crypto rewards will be built on Near, but our shopping cart will include the option to pay with fiat currency or crypto, with a focus on Near as a partner.

Nice project.
Going to tag our councils.

Take a look at this project.
We could implement the dapp at our ecosystem
