FLiK Entertainment Revolution
FLiK is an end-to-end entertainment ecosystem that allows for creative projects to be funded, filmed, distributed, and paid for all within the FLiK framework. This is a revolutionary approach to the development and distribution of entertainment as we know it.
FLiK is a young and innovative company that aims to bring creative entertainment projects to life, and give creatives from around the world the opportunity to earn a living in an inherently difficult industry.
Specifically, our goals are:
- To develop an online distribution platform that will allow creatives to sell / rent their work.
- To fund a slate (grouping) of unique and creative entertainment projects that might not otherwise receive funding.
Currently, we are working with various creatives to identify qualified entertainment projects to fund. Additionally, we are in the process of developing our online viewing platform that allows creatives to sell / rent their projects. The platform will be launched and hosted at www.TheFlik.io.
Our ultimate objective is to fund creative film and television projects and give all such projects an online home on a unique and innovate viewing platform that benefits the creatives.
The projects that FLiK helps fund will be available exclusively on the FLiK platform, therefore it is imperative that FLiK develops the right projects. Deciding what projects to fund and develop is certainly not easy. FLiK has developed the following five criteria to determine if a project is “green-lit”:
- Story – Every successful project begins and ends with a good story. The FLiK team will evaluate scripts based on the uniqueness of the story, its intended audience, and overall appeal.
- Economic Viability – Once a script has been approved, it will be compared against similar projects to determine the overall success of such projects. In the industry, this is called “comps”.
- The Budget – After the script has been approved, and an economic viability demonstrated, FLiK will determine if the project can be Produced within a reasonable budget.
- Production Team – FLiK will determine if the Production team (Producer, Director, Writer) have the ability to produce the project on-time and on-budget.
- Sales Strategy – FLiK will analyze the sales and distribution strategy presented by the Production team to ensure it’s a viable approach in maximizing FLiK’s investment and reaching the largest audience possible.
FLiK’s online distribution and viewing platform is another key component of our business strategy, and will be available at TheFlik.io. It will provide viewers with the opportunity to discover new and exciting film and television projects, and will provide a platform for creatives to keep the lion’s share of the profits. The essential highlights include:
- Familiarity – The FLiK platform will feel intuitive and similar in functionality to other online platforms such as YouTube, Netflix, and Vimeo.
- Discoverability – Because FLiK is catering to independent filmmakers and television creatives, our platform will allow viewers to discover new and interesting projects that they might not otherwise have access to.
- FLiK Tokens – FLiK tokens will allow token holders to rent or purchase projects, and will grant token holders access to premium features and subscriptions that will not be available to the general public.

As the co-founder of BitPay, Tony Gallippi has been responsible for a number of large businesses adopting bitcoin payments. During the surge of popularity of bitcoin, Gallippi was featured regularly in the media discussing bitcoin and BitPay. Around the same period, comparisons were drawn between BitPay and PayPal, with some including CNN, suggesting that one day processors like BitPay could eventually replace conventional online payment systems such as PayPal.
In 2013, BitPay became the largest processor of bitcoin payments worldwide, and began securing partnerships with major companies like Microsoft, Intel, VISA, Newegg, Shopify, and more.
Gallippi was invited by the US Senate to speak about bitcoin and the financial markets in November 2013. He stated that fraud coming from credit card payments costs businesses in the United States around $20 billion each year, and bitcoin is a far more secure form of payment for ecommerce.
