@furion has made steemdata.com and worked on python library for STEEM. He is also known coder and witness on the network. At some point he has decided to make "decentralized youtube" which some people tested on STEEM already and now ICO time came - meet Viewly!
What is Viewly ?
The incentives between content creators, their viewers and advertisers are inherently misaligned. Viewers are bombarded with pesky ads. Creators sacrifice their substance for views. Advertisers lose due to inefficiencies in reach and rampant ad-fraud.
Creators build their tribe of dedicated fans, and receive Patreon like support trough frictionless micropayments and subscriptions. Creators can also sign sponsorship deals that are in-line with their fanbase best interests—with the on-chain escrow and no middleman.
Viewly will fix this, people uploading stuff will make money from watchers and advertisers will get a targetted audience. Everything clear and transparent on blockchain.
So we have Youtube on blockchain without middle man cuting fees and making deals. Video is already big on the internet and with faster connections, can get even bigger. Also this will be censorship resistant since Youtube bans loads of things or at least doesn't let them make money from advertisements.
And this is another spot where this gets hot. COO of Bitstamp joined the board (one of the biggest European Bitcoin exchanges) and Rarez, a big youtuber known from Steem now too. Also Pon Kattera a known designer is among this crew.
This is not final ICO, this is early presale aka Pre-ICO there will be just a little tokens sold and it will be by using Ethereum (possibly when you read now sale is already running). Of course you need to send from your own wallet not from exchange! I suggest using ie MyEtherWallet or MetaMask addon for Chrome.
