SANTA MONICA, CA – 10-24-2018 ( — PopChest, the groundbreaking blockchain video startup, today announced that filmmaker, actress, and model Amanda Cerny is creating original content for the upcoming launch of its ad-free, decentralized video streaming network.

With more than 35 million followers across Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook, Amanda Cerny is an A-list influencer. Her Instagram Story account is top five in the world. As a comedic talent and original Vine star, Ms. Cerny has directed, written, and produced more than 3,000 skits. Now, she will take advantage of the creative freedom offered by PopChest and its unique peer-to-peer distribution model.

“PopChest allows me to earn money from my videos without the need for advertising,” Amanda says. “Therefore I can create content organically without having to worry whether or not my videos will be demonetized after investing so much in the production of my content.”

While creators that post videos to traditional digital platforms are beholden to the whims of a centralized operator and its advertisers, on PopChest, monetization comes from fan-to-artist contributions using the Ethereum blockchain. By decentralizing both content distribution and payments, the platform offers creators like Amanda uncompromising distribution and her fans a commercial-free viewing experience.

PopChest founder and CEO Valerian Bennett adds, “With top-tier talent like Amanda embracing blockchain technology, the future of the online video industry is being set. A whole new business model is coming to life with enormous potential and opportunity. The team at PopChest is thrilled to be leading the charge.”

Launching later this year, PopChest is the first site built on top of the open-source POP Network which uses the native cryptocurrency, the POP Token.
