On our video site (https://v.bitmov.io/) or mobile app, you can watch free content without signing up for an account. But you need to sign up an account in order to earn rewards and engage with the content and consumer community. The sign-up is for free and currently we offer 500 MoviBits, our in-platform virtual currency as sign-up bonus if you sign up on our web portal or via our Android app. Important: you will not receive sign-up bonus if you use our iOS app for signing up because of limitations from iOS app store policy. Please learn more about MoviBits here: https://www.bitmov.io/movibits
When you click the sign up button you will have a new page to ask you sign up, you need to fill up your Email address and password. If you have a referral code from one of your friends, you can also enter the referral code on the sign-up screen so that you friend can earn referral rewards. Our current referral rewards program rules can be found here: https://www.bitmov.io/movibits-rewards.
Once you sign up an account with email, you will receive an verification email from us asking you to verify the account. Once verified, you will be able to log into your account with the email/password pari you used during the sign up process.
You can also sign up an account on BitMovio platform with your Facebook or Google account.
STEP 2. Manage account and customize channel
After logging in, you can change your account setting such as updating your profile icon, your email address, your phone number, your screen name, channel alias, and other personal information. You can also update your security settings such as enable two-factor authentication, block 18+ content and inappropriate content.
If you are a content creator and intend to publish your videos on BitMovio, you can also personalize your channel set-up by clicking “Manage Channel” tab under “Creator Studio” on the left-hand-side menu bar. Here you can edit your channel artwork, include your social profile links, edit your “About me” description, and set-up the promotional video on your channel.
STEP 3. Engage with Videos/Creators and Deposit funds to eWallet
After signing up you can watch videos and earn rewards. There are many free videos for you to enjoy. You can tip content creators if you enjoy their work. A Heart equals to 100 MoviBits, a Star equals to 1,000 MoviBits, and a Rocket equals to 10,000 MoviBits.
On the same video viewing screen, you can also follow the content creator, direct message the content creator, like the video, share the video to your social networks, flag the video if you find that the video is inappropriate and violates our community guidelines. Furthermore, you can also send “bullet chat” that will show up on the video screen time-synced with the specific frame. You can also leave a comment to the video and tip the commentators.
On the Daily Rewards window on the right hand of the screen, you can claim your daily rewards by watching the videos and you can immediately see your MoviBits balance increased at the top of the menu bar, or in your BitMovio eWallet.
There are also premium movies and TV episodes on the platform that you can view the first 5 minutes for free; but need to pay to access the whole video. If you want to purchase the video or if you want to tip the content creator a rocket, you will need to fund your BitMovio eWallet. You can access the eWallet through the eWallet button near your account on the top of the page.
You can see you already have 500 MoviBits (Worth for 0.5 USD) in your wallet
There are two ways to deposit money into your BitMovio eWallet. The first option is to deposit ETH. When you click the ETH button, you will get the wallet address from BitMovio
You can copy the wallet address and send from your own external ETH wallet.
The second way is buy Movibits directly with credit card/debit card (through the web browser), or via in-app purchase (through our iOS and Android app). Please note that iOS and Google app-store charges 30% of all in-app purchases. Purchasing MoviBits on our web browser thus is 30% cheaper than buying MoviBits via in-app purchases in our Android and iOS apps.
There are five opinions to choose how much Movibits you want to buy. Once selecting the amount of MoviBits you want to purchase, you will be directed to our payment gateway page which is hosted by firstdata (https://www.firstdata.com).
