mova is a desktop app that lets you register films you've nade on a decentralised database along with license info and payment wallet. This can then be used by platforms looking to show, share and help monetize work.

What can mova do?

At present mova alpha can:

  • add metadata such as license & payee info;
  • verify that you are associated with / have access to a specific domain name;
  • publish this on a public shared distributed database as a ‘Claim’
  • index this database and make it public at an API endpoint
  • implement very basic moderation of videos there that break our community Code of Conduct and Terms of Service (such as are infringing, misleading or illegal).
  • generate ISCC codes from videos in your posession to perform a search for matching data (a kind of reverse video search).
