โฒ๏ธStream Payout

Put payroll on autopilot and delight contributors with money streams that pay by the second.

What is Streaming?

Money streaming is the concept of real-time continuous money flows. It was coined by Andreas Antonopoulos in 2017 (watch his talk here). Just as streaming changed how we interact and experience music and videos, so too will streaming forever change how we interact with money.

For example, why are salaries paid in monthly intervals? This is because micro-payments by the second weren't possible in the early banking system. With money streaming, contributors and employees can earn by the second as they work.

When using a continuous stream instead of a discrete transaction, a new era of highly capital-efficient yet composable financial primitives and tools is ushered in.

Streaming for Payroll

Benefits of Streaming for Organisations

1) Automate Payroll Management

An entire yearโ€™s payroll can be automated in 2 minutes. Simply create one transaction to set the amount you'd like to pay to each contributor and you're done! No more monthly administrative pain of chasing signers to make payroll on time. Modify or cancel individual streams at any time.

2) Retain Better Talent

Differentiate yourself against competitors by offering salary streaming as an option to regular contributors. Contributors get paid by the second and can use the funds as soon as they receive them.

3) Scalable Payroll

Run 1000s of streams concurrently. Modify or cancel streams at any time.

4) Asset diversification

Organisations can DCA from stablecoins into ETH every second, to maximise the upside potential of ETH in a bull market and vice versa.

Benefits of salary streaming for contributors:

1) Earn as you work

Instead of waiting until month-end to be paid, contributors earn money in real time as they work.

2) Capital Efficient Investing

For example, employees could dollar cost average (DCA) 10% of their streaming DAI salaries into ETH with one simple ongoing stream. No more weekly or monthly reminders to buy ETH.
