How Money Flows at OnlyFans
While OF is seen as the sketchy yet successful company in the creator economy, more news begins to come out surrounding the flow of money.
For those unfamiliar, OnlyFans is a membership site that blew up as a safe haven for adult content creators to monetize. Creators get 80% of their revenue while OF takes 20%.
A hefty cut compared to other platforms; however, given the lack of platforms that support adult content creators, OF carved a path in a profitable niche that even the most envious companies wouldn't dabble in.
The red flags started popping up when creators on the platform began to have their accounts deleted and revenue taken. The red flags continue to wave as investigations into OF make their rounds.
Like a scene from Uncut Gems, where's the money?
Hollywood & The Creator Economy
While most industries are being shaken up by the creator economy (yes, I'm talking about boxing), some are just getting to a point where they're taking the creator economy seriously.
Hollywood being one of those industries.
If you look at the top agencies; CAA, UTA, Paradigm etc, only a small number of them represent digital talent, aka creators. A majority are focused on the traditional type of actor; however, as audiences change and creators grow in popularity, we're seeing creators work their way into Hollywood and established actors (e.g. The Rock and Will Smith) take the creator route.
