TikTok Clone, Zynn, that is actually paying users for watching short videos is now removed from Play Store. It was removed due to Plagiarism. TikTok users were claiming that their content is being shown on this Clone application. It is a Chinese application that is funded by TikTok Rival company, Tencent. Tencent is the Chinese biggest social media company. It is also an extension of a Chinese application “Kuaishou”, which is a well-funded startup that recently got a $2 Billion USD investment from Tencent. After the launch of this application, it instantly ranked #1 on the App Store. In less than a week, it got 100,000+ installs on the Google Play Store, which pretty much threatened TikTok. The application is only available for users in America and Canada.
Some Tiktok users are claiming even their profiles are appearing on this TikTok clone application. Well, Zynn is a ditto copy of TikTok, so it was expected. Wired claims that it is full of stolen content. Tiktok is developed by ByteDance. Both the applications are developed by Chinese tech-giants. While it’s no longer available on Google Play Store, it’s still available on Apple’s App Store. It is expected to be removed from there too. It has already been downloaded over 3 million, according to Sensor Tower, so they got enough audience already.
In both stores, it arrived last month, ranked instantly in both stores. The main reason, it got this much audience is, it legit pays people for watching videos. Not only this, but Users also earn $1 for signing up and up to 20$ for the first referral, and up to 110$ for 5 more users referral. Money can be transferred directly to your Paypal account or you can redeem a gift card like Amazon and purchase things directly on Amazon.
How does this app afford to pay users?
The application is ad-based, they generate revenue from brands paying them to be featured on this application, because, the more audience, more sales on the brands.
It pays its users about 0.20-0.25$ per 10 minutes watch time, which is better than any other application on Google Play Store and Apple’s Store.
We didn’t want to pay giant corporations like Facebook or Google so we used the exact same amount of money to pay our frontline users instead. Our app will only have value and significance with a large number of users on it.Source: The Verge
Google hasn’t published any statement about why exactly they removed this application. However, it’s pretty obvious that it was because of plagiarism. Critics call this reward scheme “pyramid scheme”.
Zynn Team claims that they are in contact with Google Play Store team and they will come up with a solution as soon as possible.
It was pretty much made to compete against Tiktok, or maybe to take down Tiktok once and for all. However, it’s still unclear the purpose of a TikTok clone. Kuaishou and ByteDance are rivals in China.
Zynn is legit and it gives you free money by watching TikTok videos! You get $6 per invite and $10 along per 5 invites. Watch videos and gain up to $600 within the first three days and you can to.— Adreena Raye (@_its_dreena_02) June 5, 2020
