A cash and token paid entertainment content streaming site
People that cannot afford subscription to paid and ad-free media hosting sites always have to deal with random and un-seamless popping up of ads as they browse, while viewing content on free media hosting sites, and mostly, these free media hosting sites lack current content such as recently released movies or songs. The solution proposed in this paper is a cash and token paid entertainment content streaming site with undisruptive ad hosting. In this site, users can access up to date content (songs, movies, comedy clips, and TV Shows), all they need to do is pay for the content in tokens, and they obtain the tokens by either converting their cash into tokens, or by watching ads hosted on a specified page within the site (Users can make a choice to visit this ads page or not, and hence do not incur random popping up of ads while browsing). The aim of the solution is to accommodate users that cannot afford money-paid media hosting sites but desire to watch up to date content with minimum or no disruption from ads, and it achieves so by creating a fair playing field between ad-owners and content viewers by sharing some of the revenue generated from hosting ads with the ad-viewers.
