Monetization SDK


Software monetization

You've built a software used by millions of people and it's time to monetize

Inserting ads or requiring a subscription slows growth, reduces installs and decreases engagement dramatically

Luminati SDK enables you to offer your software without ads, and without subscriptions by monetizing the users' idle routing resources.

What is it?

An SDK that provides alternative monetization

  • Value exchange

    User may contribute routing resources when not using device, as an alternative to payment or ad-based usage

  • Friendly

    Routing only when the user is idle, has at least 60% battery or is on external power, and connected to the internet.

  • Full transparency

    User chooses between plans: subscription service, ad-based service, or free usage in return for resource sharing

How does it work?

The SDK starts when a device meets 3 conditions:

  • Sits idle

    Only when the device is idle

  • Connected to internet

    Either by cable or through WiFi

  • Connected to power source

    Only if plugged in or over 60% battery power

Privacy policy and Terms of use

  • User selects plan

    With first use of your software, user determines the form of payment: free (resource sharing), ad-based, or subscription (in which case there is no resource sharing). Software vendor may offer some, or all three of these payment options (for example: only resource sharing or payment).
