Why POP Network?

POP Network is an ecosystem of blockchain and AI applications built to power the streaming economy. Our vision is a universal system for turning attention into real-world goods and services.

The Future is Decentralized

Crypto is taking over the world. YouTube, Netflix, and Spotify will be decentralized. POP Network is bringing that dream to life.

Disruption Means Opportunity

A few corporations dominate the streaming economy. Blockchain and artificial intelligence change everything.

Sharing Value With You

On other platforms, you are the product. Here, you are the network. POP is cryptocurrency you earn for your contributions.

*initially ERC-20 until mainnet launch

Artificial Intelligence Protection

Hybrid blockchain/cloud application uses AI to protect the network from harmful content and preserve the blockchain's value

Token Information

For the ecosystem to endure, it must be sustained by token holders finding utility and value in POP. The initial token distribution is engineered for wide distribution to those actively participating in growing the network. POP is launching as an Ethereum ERC-20 token prior to mainnet coin swap. During the course of development, the mechanism for swapping tokens prior to mainnet launch will be made available with considerable time for feedback and implementation.

Total Token Supply 1,600,000,000 POP

Frequently Asked Questions

 
What is POP Network?
POP Network is an ecosystem of blockchain and artificial intelligence applications built to power the streaming economy. Components include:
  • •  Masternode Torrent Network for decentralized, peer-to-peer streaming
  • •  Superdelegated Proof-of-Stake blockchain for ultra-fast transaction processing
  • •  Artificial Intelligence content protection to defend the network from harmful material
Yes! The POP Network Token (“POP”) is the native utility token used to stake, secure, and govern the system. POP creates cryptoeconomic incentives to direct all parties to engage in behavior that benefits the long-term health and prosperity of the network. The token is ERC-20 until mainnet swap.
POP has multiple uses on the network, including:
  • •  Masternodes need POP as collateral to operate and earn 35% rewards
  • •  Delegates need POP to be selected as a block producer and earn 9.46% rewards
  • •  Consumers need to HODL a minimal amount of POP to stream content

How can I get POP?
Make sure to Get Updates for the latest on Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) plans.
Here are the basic token dynamics of POP Network:
POP is initially launching as an Ethereum ERC-20 token. During the course of development, the mechanism for swapping tokens prior to mainnet launch will be made available with considerable time for feedback and implementation.
What is a POP Masternode?
POP Masternodes form a decentralized, peer-to-peer torrent network to store and stream all media. With 50,000 POP collateral Masternodes earn 35% of all block rewards for performing this critical service. Testnet is live right now.
Here are the minimum suggested Masternode requirements:
  • •  One dedicated processor core
  • •  500 GB available storage
  • •  2 TB monthly bandwidth
  • •  5 Mbps upstream bandwidth
  • •  25 Mbps downstream bandwidth
  • •  95% uptime
You will need 50,000 POP collateral to run a POP Masternode and receive 35% of all block rewards. Our open-source Masternode is built so anyone can operate one with ease. Alpha Release for Windows is live right now. Mac and Linux are in development.
The full network launches shortly after IEO ends. Masternodes start earning immediately after.

Why does Tron Foundation hate POP?
The Foundation erased our original project from the Tron blockchain for competing with BTT. It's a pretty insane story…even by crypto standards.
POP lets you earn more crypto faster. Anyone can operate a Masternode and earn predictable 35% block rewards or just HODL and earn 9.46% staking rewards. And, POP Network is truly decentralized unlike Tron.
This will mean a POP community takeover of the torrent network that Tron bought for $140 million. It will also mean POP has grown 25x or 100x respectively. Forget the Sun, POP is going to the moon!
