Streaming and a new communication paradigm

live internet

According to a Linktree report, there are 200 million content creators in the world and 12% have an income of $50,000 a year, that is, they live from that job. Tuvaluan creators see the potential in content creation as a challenge and decide to name the channel Tuvalu, after the small country in Oceania that literally lives off the internet.

The small country had the .tv extension as a domain, just as Argentina has the .ar, but Tuvalu’s began to be coveted because it is an extension that refers to television. In the year 2000 the government of that country saw the business opportunity and he transferred the commercialization of the domain to the American company Versign in exchange for 5 million dollars per year. This is a very significant sum for a population of just over 11,000 inhabitants.

“Without a doubt, it can be said that Tuvalu lives off the internet and we do our bit to the economy of this country in particular because, of course, we registered .tv”, highlighted Martín Pérez.
