Queer streaming network Revry has gone crypto.
The first global Queer TV network and leader in streaming OTT for the LGBTQ+ community has announced its adoption of the LGBT Token, allowing Revry content to be available to existing LGBT Token wallet holders.
Never heard of LGBT Token, you say?
LGBT Token is a cryptocurrency for the LGBT community, created the LGBT Foundation. The Foundation is a not-for-profit organization with the mission to drive the LGBT Token and utilize blockchain technology to achieve equal rights and acceptance for all members of the LGBT+ community around the world. The LGBT Impact branch of the Foundation will give back to the community by supporting causes and organizations that aim to advance LGBT rights worldwide.
LGBT Token is built on the OST Platform with proven Ethereum protocols, providing core enterprise features such as flexible API integration capabilities, high transaction performance, and easy development. The first launch partner of the LGBT Token ecosystem was Hornet, the leading gay social network with over 25 million members worldwide.
The global LGBTQ+ community is over 300 million; measured by GDP, it is valued at 4.6 trillion dollars strong, which makes it the 4th largest global economy. An integrated system for partnership and accessibility, the LGBT Token provides a way to reach this community, giving them quality authentic content, and will be used by Revry to provide discounted subscriptions on the Hornet App.
In a statement, Revry says it is “proud to be part of the LGBT Token ecosystem, where power is seen in numbers.” The network goes on to add that “the launch of Revry with the LGBT Token seamlessly brings critically acclaimed original queer series, movies and music and its wide range of diverse voices to an ever-increasing queer community.”
Revry CEO and co-founder Damian Pelliccione says, “Revry’s partnership with LGBT Token is powerful. As a leader in streaming services and on the forefront of the digital distribution revolution, we need solutions that match our commitment to sharing authentic representation to the world. The LGBT Token and blockchain is unique in that it allows many queer people around the world who could be punished or even killed, a safe, and untraceable way by their governments to purchase not only our movies, series and music, but all the services and benefits of the LGBT Token. It truly is the most humane reason and use for crypto currency – a win-win!”
Sean Howell, LGBT Foundation CEO adds, “Given the digital nature of Revry and streaming content for the LGBTQ+ community, the LGBT Token offers a powerful solution to help Revry seamlessly reach customers and offer them all the best entertainment in one place. I am excited to help share the quality and unique voices found on Revry to an even larger community.”
