Streamer FAQs

⚡️Do I have to create exclusive content on BOLT? ⚡️

Absolutely not. You can share content that you’ve already shared on other streaming platforms or stream to multiple platforms at the same time.
We have streamers who still stream on YouTube, Twitch, and Paetron. However, streamers who are exclusive to BOLT will always get the first-look access to our upcoming product releases, and have the opportunity to be part of our product evolution.

⚡️Do my sponsors/brands have to purchase BOLT tokens in order to pay me for ads?⚡️

Our Commission Structure
    We help you cash out on your revenues on a weekly or monthly basis. This will be sent directly to your bank account.

    We can convert your tokens (BOLT or other supported tokens you have received tips into your wallet) into cash for you
    For token to cash transactions into your bank account, we take 5% from the total transaction value. All token to cash transactions are subject to KYC/AML regulations and require pre-registration and approval.

⚡️Are there any regulations/recommendations on how frequently I need to upload new content or do a stream?⚡️

We operate on enabling a brand-safe environment for our ecosystem of users, streamers and brands - that means the standard rules for that - no illicit activities, no violence, no pornography.
Your account manager will be in touch with you to provide recommendations and best practices. But get creative and focus on quality - of both your stream and your viewer interactions!

⚡️Do I need to buy BOLT tokens first in order to start my own channel?⚡️

No, you don't need BOLT tokens to get started in the BOLT ecosystem. We welcome any streamer to come on board even without any knowledge of the Blockchain.

⚡️How do I convert my tokens into fiat (cash) or other cryptocurrencies?⚡️

All token to cash transactions are subject to KYC/AML regulations and require pre-registration and approval.
We can convert your tokens (BOLT or other supported tokens you have received tips into your wallet) into cash for you, and send the proceeds to your bank account that is registered in your name.
For token to cash transactions into your bank account, we take 5% from the total transaction value.

⚡️Can I continue to stream on BOLT without creating my own tokens?⚡️

Definitely. You can receive tips and revenue in BOLT tokens, which will be credited to your wallet. However, in order to reap the full benefits of our platform’s liquidity protocol feature, you’re encouraged to try creating your own tokens when you get more familiar with how BOLT works.
There are multiple ways to be creative and explore new revenue possibilities on the BOLT platform. These include advertising revenue share, live tipping, and sales of your NFTs to your viewers. Your friendly BOLT account manager will be on hand to walk you through the various options for you to be successful on BOLT!

⚡️How can I be sure that the smart contract mechanism will send me the correct payments and royalties? ⚡️

We will test all smart contracts before they are deployed, which includes sending test transactions of very small amounts to your wallet. You are also welcome to verify the smart contract with an independent security audit, or through one of our 3rd party technology partners.

⚡️Can I accept tips in cash/fiat on BOLT? What happens if my fans don’t want to use cryptocurrency, or are not sure how to?⚡️

Unfortunately at this point, we are unable to support direct cash/fiat payments on BOLT, given that there are multiple local currencies involved.
We are, however, happy to do a broader education and provide materials (all hosted on our website, bolt.global) with step-by-step guides on how to obtain your first token/cryptocurrency.

⚡️As a streamer, can I also invest in the liquidity pools of other streamers?⚡️

Definitely! The growth and success of our streamers will be key to ensuring the success of our entire BOLT ecosystem. Let us work together and foster stronger relationships with each other.
