What is Paysenger?
Paysenger is the Web3 Platform for creators to earn income from their knowledge - similar to Substack. Besides that, Paysenger also allows users to collaborate with artists to create many products.
Paysenger was developed by Sureel - a company specializing in the artificial intelligence sector (AI), and Dr. Tamay Aykut - who is not only a lecturer at Stanford University but also holds a Ph.D. in Artificial Intelligence.
Products and revenue of Paysenger
Paysenger’s core product is the SocialFi platform that specializes in content creation with the help of AI.
SocialFi is a networking platform that allows content creators to share useful knowledge. Therefore, the platform not only helps connect them with potential customers, but earns more income.
Not similar to ordinal social networks, users on Paysenger can use AI to support content creation.
So how does AI help Paysenger?
AI is a useful tool to help any SocialFi platform. However, there is a drawback that it limits creativity.
For example: Content creators often use ChatGPT to help find images or article ideas. However, those images and ideas of ChatGPT are often data available online, leading to "copyright” issues.
Therefore, Paysenger’s AI solved the below problem in two ways:
- Image Creation: Content creators use AI to create images based on the data they post (images, text...). After that, the others can submit a request to collaborate or edit the image. Finally, AI will create the image based on the request, and it is marked as an NFT.
- Chat: Users post their status on Youtube, and Twitter to AI. Then users can ask questions about the content, topics,etc. Behalf of the user, AI will answer every question.
Revenue of Paysenger
Paysenger's revenue comes from transaction fees. The fee is around 20-30% for each transaction (Upwork transaction fee is 10%). However, it is not an official announcement of revenue.
How does Paysenger work
Paysenger's group of users consists of 3 main groups: users, creators, and Idea Maker.
- Idea Maker: The group comes up with ideas, then needs a creator to actualize them. After the creators finalize the product, Paysenger will give NFT to the Idea Maker. These NFTs will buy/sell on Paysenger.
- Creator: Making requests from Idea Maker. They will receive income (royalties fee) from NFT when the content is completed. According to Paysenger, the Royalties fee is 1-5%. In addition, Creators and Idea Makers receive additional revenue from user interaction.
- User: They are the main customers of Paysenger because the platform needs their creation the most.
In addition, there is a file of users that are companies/brands. They use Paysenger for the purpose of interacting with users through contests. For each Contest held, Paysenger will take 30-50% of the contest's revenue.
Overall, Paysenger works similarly to Upwork in Web2 because both platforms focus mainly on content creators.
