Product

StreamSpace has identified most of its competitors and provides fairly long descriptions of their platforms in the whitepaper. However, StreamSpace does not directly compare itself to these competitors and expects the reader to make the inference. Much of the value of the product comes from the proposed anti-piracy abilities of the StreamSpace platform. However, more details are required with respect to how StreamSpace plans to address particular piracy tactics such as screen recording.

Use of Blockchain

SSH is an ERC20 compliant token used as a means of exchange on the StreamSpace platform. However, it is interesting to note that StreamSpace will use two coin systems to operate: SSH and SPC (SPC will not be available for sale but will be convertible to SSH). SSH will act as a means of exchange, as with most coins, and SPC will be used as a reward for maintaining the distributed storage of content. As node operators are required to maintain the network, the need for a custom token is evident.

Whitepaper

The whitepaper contains a significant amount of detail that could be omitted to make the document more concise. For example, the section listing StreamSpace’s competitors gives a lengthy description of how each operates, with the result that this section spans 5 pages. Fair amounts of discussion are included regarding the technology and business plan of the platform, but the whitepaper contains a fair amount of buzzwords and technical jargon which seem to intentionally obfuscate the information.
