DECENT, a Swiss-based, peer to peer content distribution network powered by blockchain, today launched a web application prototype giving consumers an opportunity to test and explore their platform prior to its official launch. The publicly available prototype will give DECENT users a first look at a carefully designed user interface, which will allow consumers to use DCT tokens to buy, share, stream, and rate content. The prototype will showcase the workings of the DECENT platform before blockchain storage is activated in 2017.

Director and Co-founder of DECENT Matej Boda said, “Our prototype is a final step on our path towards providing the world with a revolutionary platform that protects privacy, prevents piracy, and makes digital content sharing easier, safer, and cheaper. We have received acclaim from early users who have tested the prototype so far, and look forward to commentary from the public so we can continually improve. User-friendliness is the most important factor for us because mainstream adoption is our goal. To that end, our mission is to remove every pain point for content consumers.”

DECENT is now in the final week of a multimillion dollar ICO, which has already raised over 5760 BTC, with only days to go until November 6, when all DCT tokens will be fully distributed. DECENT, who took their blockchain-powered, incentivized content sharing platform to interested parties in China and Europe, have recently inked multiple international business partnerships, including Polish mining giant coinmine.pl, and Fastweb, which is one of China’s leading internet Content Delivery Network (CDN) providers. Fastweb was acquired in 2012 by Nasdaq listed company 21Vianet Group Inc (VNET), the largest carrier-neutral internet data center services provider in China.

“Even before we launch, DECENT’s network is growing with incredible speed. Companies with valuable content are the first to see the value and capability of the DECENT platform. We have spent years conceptualizing, planning, and building the foundation for DECENT, and now the finish line for the ICO is in our sights,” said Boda.

The DECENT prototype includes content publishing and buying, author/content rating, account creation, and article search engines. After creating an account, authors and content users will have the ability to upload and view media on the DECENT platform. The prototype will also allow users to connect their DECENT profile with their public social media accounts, such as Twitter and Facebook, with full access to their followers. After the account has been created, the prototype will hold all of the profile information in an online wallet that allows users to send and receive DCT coins across the network. The interface’s main page shows trending and suggested articles and a powerful search engine to sift through content.
