Jan. 8, 2020 — Revry, the first global Queer TV network and leader in streaming OTT for the LGBTQ+ community, adopts the LGBT Token allowing Revry content to be available to existing LGBT Token wallet holders.
The LGBT Token is the mission driven cryptocurrency for the LGBT community, created by the LGBT Foundation and built on the OST Platform with proven Ethereum protocols, providing core enterprise features such as flexible API integration capabilities, high transaction performance, and easy development.
Revry is proud to be part of the LGBT Token ecosystem where power is seen in numbers. The first launch partner of the ecosystem was Hornet, the leading gay social network with over 25 million members worldwide. The launch of Revry with the LGBT Token seamlessly brings critically acclaimed original queer series, movies and music and its wide range of diverse voices to an ever increasing queer community.
The global LGBTQ+ community is over 300 million and if measured by GDP is valued at 4.6 trillion dollars strong, which places it as the 4th largest global economy. The LGBT Token provides a way to reach this community, giving them quality authentic content. An integrated system for partnership and accessibility, the LGBT Token will be used by Revry providing discounted subscriptions on the Hornet App.
“Revry’s partnership with LGBT Token is powerful,” says Damian Pelliccione, Revry’s CEO and co-founder. “As a leader in streaming services and on the forefront of the digital distribution revolution, we need solutions that match our commitment to sharing authentic representation to the world. The LGBT Token and blockchain is unique in that it allows many queer people around the world who could be punished or even killed, a safe, and untraceable way by their governments to purchase not only our movies, series and music, but all the services and benefits of the LGBT Token. It truly is the most humane reason and use for crypto currency – a win win!”
Sean Howell, LGBT Foundation CEO shares, “Given the digital nature of Revry and streaming content for the LGBTQ+ community, the LGBT Token offers a powerful solution to help Revry seamlessly reach customers and offer them all the best entertainment in one place. I am excited to help share the quality and unique voices found on Revry to an even larger community.”
