Sell Open Edition Video Content on BSV

For this next tutorial we are going to focus on selling your video as an Open Edition (unlimited copies) through Cryptocurrency via the Bitcoin SV Network (BSV).

Click here to learn how to sell your video through Cryptocurrency via Ethereum (ETH).

  1. Select the Monetization Option: BSV

BSV based content distribution utilizes the Bitcoin Satoshi's Vision network. Publishing content to the BSV network is free, and there are no "gas fees" associated with using the BSV option on Rad. Rad assumes these costs for users.

  • You will need a web3 wallet like HandCash that supports BSV so that you can use that wallet address accept payments in $BSV when someone purchases your content.

  • Note: With BSV-based creation, you can only publish "Open Edition" (unlimited) content. If you'd like limited editions, use the ETH Monetization Option.

  1. Download and install handcash on your mobile device (android / apple) or desktop and create a free account.

  • Open the app

  • Enter your email address and choose a strong password.

  • Follow the instructions to verify your email address. This is an important step to ensure you don’t lose access to your wallet and potentially your proceeds from sales.

  • Choose a Username and click create account

Now you have a BSV wallet! Great job!

  • Next you will need to copy your receive address

    • Open your Handcash wallet and copy the receive address

  • Now click the button shown below to copy your BSV wallet address

You are ready to mint videos on the BSV blockchain!

Let's head back to the monetizatoin page

  1. In the box that that says ‘Total Price in BSV’ enter how much BSV you want to charge. You can see the corresponding amount in United States Dollars ($USD) just below this box. For this example we have entered 0.05 BSV which is the equivalent to $4.07 at the time of this post.

  1. Enter a nickname for this wallet

  1. Enter the percentage of sales this wallet should receive. If there is only one payee - set this amount to 100. We will cover multiple wallet addresses later.

  1. Paste your BSV wallet address that we copied from the handcash app in step 2

  1. Review the information on this page and make sure there are no mistakes. This information cannot be updated or changed later.

Awesome! You have created an open edition video on the BSV network! You will be paid out immediately every time someone buys your video.

After clicking ‘Publish Video’ you will be taken back to your creator studio where you can see this video in ‘My Videos’

Let's Share Your Video!

  1. Click the ‘Preview’ button and take a look at the video’s sale page and share this video with your audience!

You will be taken to the video sale page that looks like this

You can see that this content is gated and only users that have purchased it can access the video. Users will have to buy it by clicking the ‘Buy Now’ button and completing a transaction with their BSV wallet.

  1. Click the share button

  1. Select how you would like to share your video

Let's head over to your Rad TV channel.

You can do this by clicking the channel name at the bottom right.

Now you can see your video, the title, the currency and chain, and the price you are charging.

Great job! You now know how to create and sell Open Editions with Rad on BSV (Bitcoin Satoshi Vision)! We can’t wait to see what you create!

Sell Open and Limited Edition Videos on Ethereum

What you'll need:

● A cryptocurrency wallet that supports ethereum

● A sheet of paper and a pen

● About an hour with the room to yourself

Step 1: Get the MetaMask app

On your device, go to From there, click to get MetaMask from your device’s app store or add the browser extension. The app is free, and doesn’t require signing up or entering any personal information.

Step 2: Secure your wallet

MetaMask allows you to load a wallet you’ve made before. If you’re new to crypto, choose Create a new wallet.

After choosing a password, grab a pen, a piece of paper, and get the room to yourself. MetaMask will lead you through steps to back up your Secret Recovery Phase (seed phrase). This is very important—you’ll use these twelve words to secure/recover your crypto.

They resemble a nuclear launch code from a Bond film. Here's an example:

Step 3: Get your Ethereum wallet address

In MetaMask, there's some letters and numbers in a light blue oval:

This is your Ethereum wallet address. Here's an example:


Anyone with this wallet address can see the balance of your account, and send tokens and NFTs to you. They cannot withdraw assets. Anyone with your Secret Recovery Phrase (Step 2) has full access to both receive and send assets.

Tap the blue oval to copy your wallet address. Never tell anyone your Secret Recovery Phrase.

Step 4: Buy ETH with debit, credit, or bank account

Click the buy button in metamask and follow the steps for your region. When you complete your purchase ETH will be transferred to your account.
