A platform where users can put up a bounty to be won by anyone who completes the task in the most entertaining/creative way.
It would be entertaining for both the sponsor and the participants.
It could provide quick bonus income for winners.
It would be a good way for users to constantly challenge themselves to think creatively.
Based on a combination of the social media platform TikTok, the gameshow Taskmaster and platforms for freelancers like Freelancer.com, this app would have two basic functions: Posting a challenge and viewing existing challenges.
Users would only be able to see the bounty and the title of the challenge before opening it. Once opened your time will start (time limits to be set by the sponsor) and you will not be able to reattempt a challenge from your device. By adding time constraints contestants will have to be creative and use whatever they have to complete the challenge. The entire process will be filmed, so, the app will start filming as soon as you open a challenge.
The person or company sponsoring the task will pick a winner. The bounty will be held in escrow from the beginning to ensure that a winner is picked.
The videos will be uploaded by the app automatically when the time runs out, once a winner is chosen the app will delete all submission videos apart from the winning one which will remain visible on the sponsor's profile.
Challenges are meant to be for entertainment purposes only, so while they need to be creatively challenging, they do not necessarily have to have a purpose.
Examples of tasks would be Build the highest tower using only material found in the room you are currently in (if you're outside, anything you can find outside). You have 1 hour. or Read the following paragraph, changing your accent at the beginning of each new sentence. You have 15 minutes.
Getting companies involved might provide larger bounties, which could be paid from their advertising budget. Imagine Coca Cola posting a challenge like Sing the best lovesong to a glass of Coke, you have 30 minutes to prepare, then 1 attempt to record or Recreate a scene from your favourite movie, with a can of Coke playing the leading role, you have 1 hour to prepare before filming will begin.
This could be a very entertaining way to keep yourself or a group of friends occupied while also providing an opportunity to make some extra money.
