Xsolla unveils Story3 creator platform for digital storytelling


Xsolla, the global game commerce company, wants to change digital storytelling with the introduction of its Story3 platform for creators.

Story3 is designed to liberate creators from conventional constraints, offering fair compensation, direct-to-consumer transactions, and an immersive canvas for enhanced creativity, Xsolla said.

“Creators today grapple with challenges like inadequate compensation and an uncertain career trajectory. Story3 is our audacious response, providing a platform where creators can negotiate better terms and secure stable earnings,” said Shurick Agapitov, founder of Xsolla and the author of the new metaverse book, Once Upon Tomorrow.

In a landscape flooded with digital content, the struggle for equitable creator compensation has reached a tipping point, Xsolla said. Story3 is a crafted solution, empowering storytellers, journalists, and writers to monetize their work effectively while fostering a deeper connection with their audience. It uses tech like Web3 and more to enable creators to monetize their work.
