Xenon is a new application that competes with the most popular video sharing app, TickTalk, which is almost entirely a copy. And the difference is that users are paid dollars for signing up, watching videos and following others.
The app was launched in early May and is now the number one free app in Apple’s App Store and also in the top 10 in the Google Play Store.
This app is a complete copy of TickTack, its interface is similar to that of a popular app, and both focus on short videos.
But while watching video in this new app, a countdown timer runs in the middle with a dollar sign.
That is, when users watch videos, they get points that they can later earn in the form of money or gift cards.
According to a report in The Information, Zenin is in fact a Chinese company owned by Kaohsiu, which has a strong opposition to Tite Tak-owned Byte Dance.
Kaushik is running one of the few major video apps in China and is second only to the Chinese version of Tik Tak, Devon.
There, too, the company adopted a customer payment method to gain customer attention.
But more than she pays, she earns from advertising, and recently China’s Ten Technology, a major technology company, has invested 2 2 billion in it.
The service is currently limited to China, the United States and a few specific countries, where you can watch videos for a few minutes at 0. 0.12, while people are also rewarded through a referral scheme.
