YouNow is a live streaming social platform with over 50 million registered users that creates moments of genuine connection between content creators and their fans across the world. YouNow empowers its broadcasters to identify, grow, nurture and monetize their communities.
We are proud to announce that starting in January 2021, anyone who broadcasts on YouNow can earn money when they go live. We believe that all creativity should be rewarded, and that our community should have the power and opportunity to support all of YouNow’s talent.
With the introduction of a new virtual currency called Diamonds any broadcaster can earn money during their broadcasts: they can exchange Diamonds for bars in order to support other broadcasters on YouNow, or cash them out for $USD.
Here’s how it works:
The higher your broadcast tier, the more diamonds you can get per gift. Broadcasters can level up tiers by broadcasting more, growing their audience, and connecting with the community. Learn more about broadcast tiers here.
YouNow has been a pioneer in the streaming video space since 2011 and introduced the first two-sided virtual economy in the U.S., where users earn and spend digital currency.
Jake Branzburg, YouNow President, said, “We want to make it fun to find and connect with people across the world, and seamless to monetize your talent. Anyone can create content online. Now anyone can earn. That’s the way it should be.”
