DECENT GO is a Google Play-like digital marketplace built on top of a blockchain platform allowing digital content exchange and purchasing on a peer-to-peer basis.

Today we are excited to announce the first major update of DECENT GO beta. The web application was launched back in June, but until now it has contained only wallet and basic account creation options. We are thrilled to add marketplace functionality and look forward to watching our community populate the platform with all sorts of digital content. As a beta user, you will be able to get a first look at the ability to publish digital content in any format, choose seeders, setup publisher profiles, browse and buy peer-published content. For now, seeding will be limited to between 1 day and 1 week – as we gather data and user feedback we will expand this limit when it is safe to do so. IMPORTANT NOTE: this is not final product, it’s meant to “test” functionality, so not all planned features have been included.

Built on our proprietary and purpose-based DECENT Blockchain, DECENT GO promises to offer a better deal for content producers and consumers than the current industry giants. It is also a perfect example of what can be built on our open-source core technology.

Content is distributed via a Peer-to-peer Blockchain Network and does not rely on third parties, giving authors the ability to upload their own content, and independently assign it to a category, write a description of the content, choose its lifetime duration, allocate its price, and IP rights. The fee for each transaction is transferred fairly and almost instantly to the artist’s account after each transaction; artists will no longer have to wait months before seeing a penny from their work.

Uploading, downloading, purchasing and selling digital content on DECENT GO is driven by our Digital Content Token (hereinafter referred to as “DCT”). The first 400 new users who create an account on DECENT GO after this update will automatically receive 2.5 DCT in their wallet, to begin trying out the platform, uploading content, choosing seeders, downloading content, and reporting bugs. This feedback is crucial to further development.

You want a marketplace secured by blockchain tech! Now is a the perfect time to get involved. Help guide the direction of DECENT GO with your insights as an early adopter. Boost your reputation and enjoy high visibility as a pioneer DGO publisher.

KNOWN ISSUES

*Currently, not all browsers are supported and uploading content is not available on iOS (iPhone) or when using Safari on MacOS. (You can still use other browsers.) These will be supported in future updates.

**Some users may see strange transaction entries but the balance shown in your wallet is still correct. This should be fixed very shortly.
