What is MintStars?
MintStars combines subscription NFT drops with marketplace resales to help creators earn more from every piece of content, protect them from piracy, and reduce creator burnout.
Fans subscribe to creators on a monthly basis and receive an NFT of every piece of content they post, which they can keep or resell on the Marketplace, with creators getting royalties.
Creators can also sell premium content on the Marketplace, choosing the price and rarity.
MintStars NFTs are different from traditional NFTs – since each NFT represents the license to private content, the content behind each NFT is viewable only by the NFT holder; the NFT acts as a key to access the content.
Buyers purchase NFTs not just for their collectibility, but also for their ability to access the content.
MintStars model relies on in an economy of scarcity: When a creator posts content, only their current subscribers receive that NFT.
This makes content posted earlier in a creator’s career rarer and more valuable. Since later subscribers will want to buy that earlier content on the marketplace, fans are incentivized to help their favorite creators grow.
Creators’ fans become their marketing team.
Fans are incentivized to subscribe to undiscovered creators, helping counterbalance the huge inequality in earnings between creators based on their follow counts. This model combats creator burnout by rewarding quality over quantity and enabling creators’ content to continue earning money for them long after it’s posted.
Fans, meanwhile, can easily recoup their subscription costs with only a couple resales, increasing platform stickiness and renewal rates.
