The v2 forums are such a great community. I’ve watched at a distance for a while and was bummed like everyone else when @dom decided to postpone the launch. I was really excited to see all of the amazing work that you all were going to put out there. I’ve been building an app that I hope addresses some of the same problems that v2 was going to, such as helping artists earn a living and allowing new artists to get discovered.
An audience is a valuable thing — an authentic group of people who like that content you make, can’t purchased. But on the internet, everything is mediated by an algorithm. People are only shown the content that Facebook/Youtube/Instagram thinks that they will like, which tends to be the stuff produced by artists who already have a lot of followers and get a lot of likes.
Fameshow is different. Anyone can have access to an audience — whether you have 100,000 followers or you’re just getting started and don’t even have your first subscriber. On Fameshow, a member from the audience is randomly selected to stream and has 20 seconds to be as interesting as possible. If enough of the audience upvotes them, then they get more time, otherwise someone new is selected. An what is cool is that, unlike other apps, you are paid for your time (right now, a $1.50 per minute, but set to increase as the size of the audience does). We stream 3 times a week.

I really want to see this community have a chance to interact and stream together! If you sign up and email firstname.lastname@example.org, we will add a v2 badge to your username ( or ️, let me know which one would be better). This will guarantee that you have a chance to stream!
