Video Chat Platform Debuts

LOS ANGELES — Ctrl Venture has launched, a free webcam and pinboard platform based on gamification and (webRTC) video streaming technology.

The company said the new platform provides streaming and gamification elements, as well as supporting a social cause. Members can collect, pin, repin, watch, like, follow their favorite photos and video clips or enjoy live video chat rooms.

All members are stimulated and rewarded with free coins as part of the gamification engine for their onsite activities and achievements. Members also receive 50 percent extra coins on their first coin purchases by credit card.

In the first month, webcam performers and studio partners receive 75 percent from their earnings plus a 5 percent share from all referred members spending. The company will use part of the revenues to support the global fight against hunger to bind their activities with something positive.

Performers and studios can sign up at Visit for information about the charity initiative.
