There have been only a handful of new technologies and software developments in recent years that can boast the same impact and potency for disruption as cryptocurrencies can. The veneer of a curio that’s only understandable by hardcore math enthusiasts hides the technology that’s made big international financial institutions very excited and very fearful, as their roles as intermediaries are brought into question.
For the rest of the people trying to survive and thrive in the digital landscape, cryptocurrencies can be an invaluable asset. But because there are several barriers to adopting them, including lack of implementations and the complicated ecosystem, there are still huge pockets of the internet where crypto hasn’t broken through. Modeling is one of those pockets, and Girls of BitClout plans to change that.
This startup, which launched recently and has already made some waves by signing up popular Instagram models, aims to be the thing that bridges the gap between models and BitClout, a platform that’s most easily understood as a social network underpinned by blockchain, the very technology that underpins cryptocurrencies. BitClout generates social tokens based on people’s reputations, and those tokens can be further used within the social network.
While they’re not the founders of BitClout, the team behind the Girls of BitClout saw the potential of such a setup. “We found out about BitClout, the social media platform that gives creators their own coin users can invest in,” says a Girls of BitClout founder, Chris Bustos. “We believe this platform has the potential to disrupt social media, venture capital, and more.”
For now, the team of Girls of BitClout is focused on their core mission of spreading the word about the benefits of these new monetization models. They are also there to help the models sign up, as well as figure out what’s the best way for them to monetize their content on a platform such as BitClout.
In the future, Girls of BitClout plans to go a step further than just introducing crypto into the world of online modeling. BitClout wasn’t exactly built to facilitate things these models might easily do on platforms such as OnlyFans, where it’s fairly easy to send out content. So that’s the next hurdle Girls of BitClout is looking to jump: to make their own original offering that will help the models share their content with their fans.
In the process, Girls of BitClout will be working on their branding and positioning as the agency to follow if one wants to know who the newest models coming to the platform are and which models’ coins will make for a good investment. If the speed at which they move is anything to judge by, the agency will soon get from being the first in their niche to being the only one worth following.
