Craterland is the new-new local TV.
Craterland is a video-sharing platform that's a unique take on traditional local TV networks. Instead of stations, old school broadcasters, and homogenized programming Tapping into the talents of untraditional content creators to deliver local news, stories, and shows that inform, entertain, and inspire the next generation of local viewers, they help creators earn money.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

They're redefining local media by leveraging a new age of media where it’s easier than ever to independently produce, distribute, and freely monetize content at little to no cost.
Their platform enlists local content creators and incentivizes them to create and share local stories through curated daily local story challenges. Creators can film and edit from their platform, submit the stories, and earn tokens that they can exchange for cash or prizes. Alternatively, creators can independently post their own stories or shows and set-up paywalls and receive tips from viewers who watch their content.

Their main innovation is a simplified and fun process for local creators to create, distribute locally, and monetize locally-relevant storytelling.
