What is PROPS

 Our motivation is to create a more balanced and equitable digital media ecosystem that is not controlled by a few key actors. We will achieve this through tokenization and decentralization of the digital media economy while exploiting the distribution efficiencies of tightly managed mobile apps that enable participation by mainstream users.

YouNow has designed Rize from the ground up over the past twelve months to realize this vision. Participants will join the PROPS Ecosystem either through Rize, or through other platforms and applications in the ecosystem. For their efforts, contributors will receive a proportional share in the network value and impact the governance of the ecosystem. A diversified network of economic actors will naturally contribute to the decentralization of the PROPS economy, while continuing to enjoy the advantages of prevailing mass market mobile distribution channels.

Establishing value for the PROPS Ecosystem involves a three part plan: grow a network of PROPS users in digital media, create a Partner Rewards program and demonstrate the opportunity for ecosystem participants. The Rize platform will furnish the initial user network, demonstrate the value of a contributor driven cryptoeconomic business model and act as a cornerstone for adoption by additional ecosystem partners. Platforms and apps in the PROPS Ecosystem (Partners), including Rize, will build the network of PROPS users and grow the use cases for PROPS and its value. In exchange, the Digital Media Foundation will seed Partners with an initial token supply to align incentives and allow them to earn from the Digital Media Foundation’s Partner Rewards pool.

The Digital Media Foundation will also oversee the development of a shared layer that allows users to take their identity, relationships and wallet with them between platforms and apps, contributing to seamless interoperability within the ecosystem. New platforms and apps that enter the ecosystem will be able to quickly onboard users who already have accounts, and as they acquire new users, the network will continue to grow. Over time, the identity layer will transition into a blockchain-based social graph culminating in an ecosystem that supports both centralized and decentralized applications that strengthen the network.
