The idea is to generate citizens wealth from digital content and creative assets in all media. By campaigning to have this wealth recognised as a shared contribution, we can also help to improve tax accountability in platforms for user generated content as well greater ownership and control of content for their users.
CultureBanked - The Service
Currently, governments want to collect Digital Services Tax (DST) based on revenues. By classifying your online assets as taxable supply goods ('Culture-Banked'), you are inviting governments to use it to generate tax money directly from your contributions. It makes sense to tax platforms on the amount of processing capacity given to monetising the content you supply to them, which is, after all, owned by you! It also makes sense that, by taking greater control over it, 'users' - or contributors - can become more responsible for content management and moderation. But, we need shared interfaces (use) and control (ownership) to do all of these things. Working with kendra.io we want to engage with artists and the wider public of digital content suppliers to build these interfaces and services and raise much needed wealth or taxes for real things stuff like health and education from our online activities. Use the sign up below to find out more and work with us to co-design the services we all need. #culturebanked
