Adding Jordan’s content to Rokfin will provide subscribers never-before-seen access into his life leading up to the 2019 World Championships in Kazakhstan and beyond.

Rokfin, a creator-first subscription media company and the world’s only digital platform that rewards content creators for the full value they generate, today announced an agreement with decorated American freestyle wrestler Jordan Burroughs. A gold medalist at the 2012 Summer Olympics and a four-time world champion, Burroughs will publish exclusive content on his Rokfin channel, including technique videos, training regimens, and more.

Burroughs’ content will appear on Rokfin.com beginning in July.

"I'm giving unprecedented access to my fans around the world on Rokfin,” Burroughs said. “Never before have I created a technique library that offers the little secrets of my craft with a full explanation of why and how each move evolved. The ‘why’ and ‘how’ is where the magic is.

"I could have done this anywhere, but Rokfin is the first platform that taps into the power of the community and gives it back to the athlete or creator of the IP. As a wrestler, I look to evolve to stay ahead of the game, and I believe from a business perspective, choosing Rokfin is the right move."

Rokfin, based in Austin, Texas, launched in March 2019 and features content from more than two dozen creators across topics such as mixed martial arts (Ben Askren, Chael Sonnen), wrestling (Izzy Martinez, Tony Ramos), and comedy (Adam Hunter, Julian Smith).

“I’ve long admired Jordan’s career, and there’s so much we can learn from his experiences on and off the mat,” Rokfin Founder and CEO Martin Floreani said. “Adding Jordan’s content to Rokfin will provide subscribers never-before-seen access into his life leading up to the 2019 World Championships in Kazakhstan and beyond.”

Users subscribe to Rokfin for $9.99 per month to access content from all creators across the network. Creators on Rokfin are rewarded in RAE Tokens, which allow them to benefit from the network effects they generate and receive residuals for the lifetime value of their fans.

Utilizing blockchain technology, Rokin is shifting power away from digital platforms and creating a more equitable content ecosystem.

“Platforms like YouTube are growing and benefiting at the expense of the vast majority of their creators, and the reason is because they have all of the leverage,” Floreani said. “We help solve for the creator’s dilemma by aligning incentives between creators and the platform. This is made possible through the RAE Token, which acts as the native currency of the network.”
