The world of social media in 2018 has seen an increase in malicious activity including cyberbullying and abuse through these social platforms and other web forums. Despite this, even the donation pages like Patreon and YouTube Superchats have addressed these posts causing a crackdown during the year on these users. However, acts of censorship and de-platforming involved innocents such as the removal of religious podcasters, right-wingers, atheists and other radical individuals such as the former Rebel Media Lauren Southern personalities.
The CEO of Bitbacker.io talks about Patreon and Fiat Donation Pages
The ends of the Patreon The purge has given rise to a blockchain-based donation platform, Bitbacker.io. The launch aims to resolve the continued closure of the accounts by providing a platform without censorship to its users. In addition, by providing a low-cost, low-cost donation page, the creators of Bitbacker.io will have more incentives to create on the site.
Speaking with Bitcoin.com, the founder and CEO of Bitbacker explained how the backbone of his idea is the culture of the manuscript in the crypt. However, the CEO noted that most of these suggestions and donations are made through fiat services that are inefficient and expensive as Patreon. He also provided examples of heavyweight crypts using and advertising fiat donation services to raise money. He said:
"Naomi Brockwell, for example, runs an encrypted show, but receives the overwhelming majority of her support through press sources like Patreon, which is probably true among Crypto's most prominent members: Andreas Antonopoulos, whose YouTube channel is practically advertising for Patreon. "
The Bitbacker.io platform
The Bitbacker.io platform works similarly to the Patreon service. To access the services offered on the platform, users must register or log in if they already have an account. The services offered on the blockchain platform include;
- The PowerChat: Watch the live streams of your favorite creators and use crypto to send messages highlighted during their stream. A great way for fans and creators to interact during live chat.
- Anonymous donations: not everyone likes that their identity is known. You do not need to create an account to use PowerChat. Access the page of your favorite creator and send all the PowerChat messages you want with a choice of different cryptocurrencies!
- Commitment: Set monthly cryptographic donations for your favorite creators and access their exclusive feeds reserved for members.

Despite offering similar services to Patreon, Bitbacker.io charges 1% on transactions on the platform while the Patreon charges 10%. The use of cryptocurrencies removes the cost of outsourcing regulatory compliance to be a money transmitter to an external payment processor. In other services such as YouTube SuperChat, 30% of the transaction is charged while the content that violates freedom of speech is censured.
Bitbacker.io also offers its users a secure platform for vloggers, authors and other types of content creators freely as stated on their website. The platform supports Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin (BTC) and Smartcash.
