Lessthunk: good comment on reddit by awakes
My guess is they did not do a gallery because they did not want to police the content of the streams. There would be backlash from the community if they did. There would be sex cams and illegal streams if they didn’t. It’s a lose/lose. However, I’m sure there a dozens of indexers being built right now.
Airbnb doesn’t own any real estate, Alibaba doesn’t own any inventory. Uber has no cars, Expedia has no airplanes. These are information brokers and it is a highly scalable business model.
Someone right now is building an information broker for bitcoin streams and they are going to get paid. Charge a flat monthly fee (paid in bitcoin) for inclusion in the index and watch the coins roll in.
