Mogul Partners with Biconomy

Mogul to launch using Biconomy to simplify blockchain experience for new, everyday users

Mogul Productions, the decentralized film financing (DeFiFi) platform, has partnered with Biconomy, an industry-leading blockchain relayer infrastructure network, to increase the usability of Mogul’s blockchain-based technology in preparation to onboard everyday users from the film industry inside the Mogul community.

Biconomy is a developer platform that helps augment Mogul’s technology and creates a simplified Web3 transaction and onboarding experience for film industry users. By using Biconomy, Mogul is able to offer its users free, sponsored transactions. This partnership increases the user experience and reduces the total cost of running the Mogul platform by over 50%.

Mogul’s vision is to be an innovative and progressive film financier and production company by leveraging blockchain technology for voting, film financing and rewards. With its proprietary platform, Mogul is looking to engage audiences and financiers across the script-to-screen process, with the mission to promote financial transparency in independent film financing.

Through engaging an audience in such an intimate way and entering an industry as large as film & entertainment, Mogul expects to support a significant number of transactions. Mogul’s platform has been built so film industry users can start using blockchain with ease within seconds, requiring no “cryptocurrency proficiency” or paying of transaction fees.

“When a user logs into Netflix, they don’t need to pay a transaction fee every time they watch a show, but these users benefit from using decentralized, Web3 applications like Mogul,” says Ahmed Al-Balaghi, Co-Founder and CEO at Biconomy. “We’re excited to work with Mogul to provide usability infrastructure to Mogul’s platform.”

“With Mogul, we’re connecting fans, creators, and financiers in a transparent and decentralized ecosystem to get better movies made more efficiently. Blockchain is the perfect foundation for a new film ecosystem, but most people are not familiar with the user experience hurdles that come with using blockchain,” says Gagan Grewal, CEO of Mogul Productions. “That’s why we’re partnering with companies like Biconomy — to create robust blockchain-based infrastructure with the familiar usability of a platform like Netflix.”

Integrating Biconomy will allow Mogul to make its DeFi platform user-friendly for film industry participants while they still maintain full control over their token assets at all times within a non-custodial wallet environment. Mogul users will not need to worry about problems that typically plague first-time blockchain users (such as needing to purchase ETH to make their first transaction, stuck transactions within their wallet, and a confusing onboarding process). Mogul’s technology, through its partnership with Biconomy, becomes horizontally and vertically scalable to support the anticipated new wave of users unfamiliar with blockchain, including film industry participants looking to use DeFiFi.
