Over the years, content creation has become a massive staple in the digital industry. Various individuals have found remarkable success with content creation, utilizing their creativity to express themselves to the world while doing what they love. This universal passion for content creation has spread across a variety of online platforms, allowing for creators to gain an international audience through the internet. TrueFanz is an emerging global platform for digital content creation which puts its creators at the forefront of the industry.

While other online platforms such as YouTube and TikTok have been pioneers in the content creation industry, TrueFanz brings something truly unique to the field, innovating it for the next generation of creators. The online platform allows talented individuals to generate revenue by showcasing their expertise in their respective fields. 

TrueFanz is an app developed for creators to fully engage with their audiences while staying true to their passions. This allows content creators to foster a loyal community who truly enjoys their content. The app features a membership platform where audiences can tune into their subscription service to continue supporting their favorite content creators. This might sound like OnlyFans, but TrueFanz strictly prohibits pornographic content and has a screenshot detection feature to ensure its content creators’ privacy and safety.

The emerging online platform aims to put its content creators first and foremost. TrueFanz offers a much smoother and faster payout system with several features that creators can monetize. The app is the brainchild of Tim, Vineet, and Logan, who has been hard at work at conceptualizing a social media platform that makes content creators a top priority. 

As fellow content creators themselves, they realized that they weren’t compensated enough despite raking in millions of views and massive followings. In 2019, they thought of solving these problems by creating a platform themselves. Thus, TrueFanz was born. After spending a year in development, the app officially launched in 2020 with the mission of empowering content creators and brands so they could benefit from a stable and consistent revenue stream for their content creation.

The three developers firmly believe that content creators deserve better than how they’ve been treated. Oftentimes, creators would find themselves censored, throttling their total reach due to algorithms. Tim, Vineet, and Logan wanted to change all that, so they’ve advocated for true change with TrueFanz.

The trio also enjoys connecting with creators on the platform and sponsoring events to discover the wide array of creators out there. “We’ve found that when we build strong relationships with our creators, they have a much higher rate of success,” said the TrueFanz team. “We will always listen with the intent to serve our creators.”

Today, TrueFanz has positioned itself as a trusted digital content creation platform and is now in its second year. The TrueFanz team is confident that their platform will help millions of content creators all over the world, helping them find better ways to sustain their passion for their creative work. “We actively ask our creators, “What can we do to be better?” These conversations have led to the development of new features and functionality, which, in turn, has helped our creators generate even more income,” shared the TrueFanz team.

Squid Game Takes 1st Place: The Korean Series Wins Big

As the pandemic continues to rampant, people continue to follow safety protocols, spending time at home and only going out for groceries. With more time in their hands, many have tuned to streaming sites to keep themselves distracted from all the terrible news on the outside world. In the past month, one show in particular has caught the world’s attention, Squid Game

Squid Game is a South Korean series that falls into a similar category as The Hunger Games, Running Man, and the Japanese hit film Battle Royale. The premise of the show revolves around a contest that has 456 players competing to win the cash prize of 45.6 billion Won. While initially seeming like an easy task, the players soon realize that the penalty is death. 

The series follows a Seong Gi-hun (played by Lee Jung-jae), a divorced and indebted chauffeur, who wins a game of ddjaki against a man in suit at a train station. The man offers him the opportunity to win so much more. Debt-ridden, Gi-hun eventually accepts the invitation and gets knocked unconscious upon following instructions for a rendezvous. He awakens in a dormitory with 455 other players, each one numbered by their tracksuits. It is revealed that all the participants are also in difficult financial situations. After the masked staff arrive, the instructions are relayed: they can win the prize after winning six games in a span of six days. Gi-hun and the other players are then taken to the first game, and they soon realize that it isn’t as easy as they thought.

Released on September 17, Squid Game is a Netflix series that has taken the world by storm. Since its release, the series has become Korea’s first show to hit the top trending spots in the United States. Although it is one of the most successful shows on the platform today, Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk had difficulty getting his creation greenlit by studios. 

At the time, Hwang Dong-hyuk was living with his mother and grandmother, basing the story around his own economic struggles and observing the class disparity in South Korea. At one point, he had to sell his laptop for $675 in cash just to survive. Although the premise seemed relevant, Hwang believed the world wasn’t ready for his work. It wasn’t until later that he was convinced the world was ready for Squid Game.

Hwang revealed that the concept of throwing players into childhood games with deadly consequences came about more than a decade ago in 2008. “I came up with which games to use in the story ten years ago,” he explained. “And it was, to begin with the red light, green light game that makes a big impact with shocking mass death. I thought players fighting like warriors using the shapes, which form a ring, would demonstrate the irony of it being a children’s game, as well as the player’s desperation.”

Although it took a while, Netflix finally picked up the show in 2019. Since then, it has been subtitled in 31 languages and dubbed in 13, propelling Squid Game to the top in more than 90 countries with 95% of viewers outside South Korea. 

Russia Aggregates Assault on Ukraine Urban Regions As Armed Convoy Temporarily Halts

On Tuesday, Russia bombed a TV tower in the capital of Ukraine. It showered rockets on Kharkiv city as Moscow aggregated its assault of urban regions in Ukraine in a change of strategy following the stall of its six-day invasion. 

According to a US official, a miles-long armored convoy moving in the capital Kyiv has not made a move to forge ahead in the past 24 hours, held up by problems in logistics, fuel, and food shortage, and possibly halting to re-evaluate strategy. 

The defense ministry of Russia encouraged Kyiv citizens to escape and stated that it would target unidentified areas used by the security services and communications of Ukraine. 

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, speaking in a heavily guarded government compound in Kyiv, stated Russia should “first stop bombing people” before peace negotiations could progress. 

Zelensky, in an interview, asked NATO allies to implement a no-fly zone to halt Russia’s air force, which the military alliance has dismissed. 

While Zelensky, unshaven and sporting plain khaki garments, spoke, news broke that a Russian missile had hit a TV tower close to Babyn Yar Holocaust memorial site in Kyiv, leading to the deaths of approximately five people. 

On Tuesday, Zelensky had a 30-minute conversation with US counterpart Joe Biden. He said the heavy weaponry blasts on the eastern city of Kharkiv were equal to “state terrorism.” 

According to the White House, Biden and Zelensky talked about how Russia had aggregated assaults on sites utilized by civilians. The US leader is anticipated to stress Western unity over Ukraine in his State of the Union address on Tuesday. 

President Vladimir Putin has gathered an international censure and sanctions that have already dragged the ruble value to its downfall and propelled Russians to seek other options aside from banks to secure their savings. 

The West and its allies have implemented severe sanctions on Russia to block off its economy from the international financial system, queuing companies worldwide to stop sales, disassociate, and junk tens of billions of dollars worth of investments.
