    • Future Bounty features will provide limitless options to create earning opportunities!

Voting

  • Why should I vote on the videos?
    • Performers are paid out from the percentage of total votes their video earns, so every vote truly means something!
    • Performers are all independent entrepreneurs. Creating content for your enjoyment takes time and effort. The work they put in deserves to be compensated. Stroken has pre-funded the first Bounty, so cast your votes to your favorite videos so models can earn the money they deserve!
  • How many votes can I use per video?
    • Users are in full control of their votes. You can use 1 vote per video, all 20 votes for one video, or any number in between.
    • The number of votes you have available are displayed in the top right corner of the page.
    • Votes can not be saved for use at a later date or for a different Bounty.
    • Any unused votes will be distributed evenly among the submitted videos and paid out accordingly.
  • How can I get people to vote for my video?
    • Create and original and interesting content around the Bounty idea that you believe the viewers will love!
    • Make sure to incorporate all of the necessary Bounty criteria.
    • Tell your friends and fans to go vote for you!
      • Use social media to encourage everyone to watch your video and vote.
    • Get your video in ASAP so it has a greater chance at being viewed and gaining votes early! The longer your video is available, the better chance it has to receive votes, meaning the bigger your payout!

Payouts

  • Adult entertainment performers as “independent entrepreneurs.”
    • The hard work put in by adult entertainers is no different than any other individual running a business, yet they face challenges due to taboos surrounding the adult industry.
    • Empowering performers by providing a new source of revenue to reach maximum earning potential is an important goal for Stroken.
  • Why am I being paid out in cryptocurrency?
    • Banks and other traditional payment services often require high fees or refuse to provide banking services for the adult entertainment industry.
      • This is why many websites are forced to withhold higher percentages of your total payout.
      • Many performers have encountered troubles such as losing money and having their payments withheld with other services.
      • Cryptocurrency is different because it is decentralized. This results in:
        • Lower transaction fees
        • Increased financial security
        • Increased identity protection
    • By avoiding issues with banks and traditional payments services, performers earn bigger payouts!
  • Cryptocurrency is complicated, I don’t know how to use it and don’t want to learn!
    • We all want things to be easy. But if we want to see changes made towards independent entrepreneurs in adult entertainment, we need to take control and make them!
    • StrokenTokens is the payment solution for Stroken that will hopefully expand to other adult sites in the future providing a consistent payment solution across all platforms.   
      • Businesses interested in implementing StrokenTokens on their site may reach out to [email protected].
    • We understand that cryptocurrency isn’t for everybody. So don’t worry, the ability to utilize USD is coming soon!
      • Incentives for embracing cryptocurrency will be available to help motivate everyone to learn!  
    • StrokenTokens is taking a simple approach to introducing cryptocurrency as a payment solution for the adult industry.
      • Wallet features will begin with basic deposit and withdrawal functionality to add or remove your funds at any time.
      • A conversion calculator is built in providing you the ability to see the value of your funds in USD.
        • This makes using crypto even easier than trying to add up the true value of “tokens” offered on other sites.
      • We understand that cryptocurrency is new. Therefore, we are starting with two major forms of cryptocurrency, Ethereum and Bitcoin.
        • The ability to pay and be paid with many different forms of cryptocurrency will come in the future!
      • Remove your available earnings from the site anytime by using the exchange of your choice.
  • What is pr0n?
    • The utility token, pr0n, comes from our payment and identity management platform, StrokenTokens.
    • Pr0n is a token that will be awarded for involvement and contributions on the site.
    • Pr0n will be used to access features or additional rewards on the sites that choose to use it.
      • Examples for Stroken.com: Fund Bounties, Tipping, Access Videos, Merchandise, etc.
    • Full details and education on its use to come…remember we’re introducing things slowly!
  • How is the $10,000 paid out to performers?
    • Performers will receive their payout based off the percentage of total votes earned from their video.
    • The total amount of votes distributed depends on the number of total users that register. Each user who registers will receive 20 votes that are eligible for use during this Bounty.
    • Any unused votes will be distributed evenly between each submitted video and added to their final percentage of total votes obtained.
    • Payouts will be distributed directly to the cryptocurrency wallet of the profile that uploaded the video.
    • The total payout will be provided as 50% Bitcoin and 50% Ethereum at the current market rate during the time of payout.   
    • You may withdraw your cryptocurrency from your wallet at any time.
  • When will I get paid?
    • Payouts will occur once the 30-day Bounty closes.
    • Payouts will go directly to the Stroken wallet of the profile that uploaded the video.
