Blockchain-based streaming service Sator has developed a decentralized program that will enable users to earn NFTs, tokens, and “other rewards” by watching TV and playing games.
While details are scarce about the exact amount of rewards that users can receive, according to the website, Added NFTs will be directly linked to amount of shows watched, and time devoted to puzzles with puzzles and TV trivia on the show.
Sator’s CEO, Isla Perfito, said the company created: “An easy and powerful solution for TV producers to turn around to deliver a unique NFT experience of their shows while viewers tune in.”
He added that “NFTs will bring a lot of performance to the platform, a wonderful jumping off point for a user looking to dive into blockchain technology.”
Although it did not disclose what rights to television programs the program plans to acquire, the company announced that it had recently closed $ 2 million, which included investments from Faculty Capital, Genesis Block Ventures, Digital Strategies and PetRock Capital.

The one-of-a-kind NFT is a tokenized song called “Jenny” and was commissioned to celebrate the recent launch of the Jenny Metaverse DAO, or Decentralized Autonomous Organization, on Unique. The NFT contains an unreleased track by Aoki and 3LAU, and is accompanied by a visual artwork by Pieter Hergert.
The NFT was created on OpenSea by 3LAU, also known as Justin Blau, and then delivered to a treasury controlled by a smart contract on the Unicly Protocol, which enables users to combine, split and exchange their NFT collections.

The metaverse DAO recently tiris together $ 7 million to fund an NFT acquisition for joint ownership among its ruling owners – with Aoki and 3LAU NFT being the first choice for its collection after the community voted for it earlier this month.
The NFT will probably be locked up for a while. According to Jenny, the NFT-stored in the Unicly vault can “be released only if consent holders of Jenny Token reach a certain threshold and order the smart contract to unlock the vault.”
