The excitement that peaked in late 2021 across cryptocurrencies appear to be on its way back after a rough 2022 in the form of optimism. This optimism is based on the focus on the new wave of cryptocurrencies that have set out to solve issues that has existed for decades. Let's look at some of the most exciting companies that are making waves in 2023.

Script Network (SCPT)

Real world issue: Lack of payment and data to content partners. Monthly subscriptions for TV with no earning model for users. Ridiculous video delivery and storage costs for enterprises

Solution: Faster payments, more data for content partners. Free premium TV with rewards, and over 80% saved to enterprises using video compared to web2 alternatives.

Script Network is, to put it simply, a layer 1 video protocol, focused on fixing the issue across sky high video delivery costs, the lack of rewards to tv viewers, and the lack of payments to hundreds upon thousands of filmmakers. Script TV, powered by the Script Blockchain, offers decentralized bandwidth and content-sharing incentives at a more affordable rate than conventional service providers. The watch-to-earn economy model allows users to earn tokens and other rewards while watching content. It’s the first time that linear TV can be watched on any device (including your own TV screen at home), and earn whilst doing so.
