Want to know more about the brand-new live cam site, Camversity?
If you want an education in life then we all know that a higher institute of learning is the way forward; so, welcome to Camversity. Launched in 2018 by webcam models, for webcam models, this live cam platform is reaching huge audiences and gaining a bit of a name for itself. We wanted to know more about the story behind the site and why both models and audiences are flocking for a closer look.
In this feature, we take a closer look at the new kid on the live cam block, Camversity. We’ll delve more deeply into what it costs to watch and what you can earn to broadcast. We’ll also consider any special selling points before we give you our opinion on this new adult camming site.
What is Camversity?
Camversity is a live camming platform where models broadcast themselves free to an eager audience. Of course, the aim is to tempt people in to tipping them or paying for a private chat.
Made up entirely of female models with no men or transsexuals at all (even the couples are female-female), Camversity was launched in 2018 and, according to their website, is still in Beta mode.
As a result of being new, they are still relatively small when compared to their competitors and you can expect to find only a few dozen live cams online during off-peak times; this can rise to triple figures for peak times.
According to data obtained from SimilarWeb, Camversity is currently receiving traffic figures in excess of 2 million hits per month and is most popular in the United States. Around 30% of visitors hail from this area with the following countries also being regular visitors:
- Colombia – 13%
- Brazil – 6.5%
- Canada – 5.5%
- France – 3.5%
Though still only ranked in the top 3,000 adult websites worldwide, these figures are pretty impressive for a site that is only a year old.
Their original launch videos from 2018 don’t reveal an awful lot about how the platform operates but they are revealing in other ways!
What’s Special About Camversity?
Okay, so the name of the site suggests that there would have been mileage in making this site all about grad school students. Despite the obvious name choice, this isn’t the case and instead the site uses social media and marketing platforms to advertise that Camversity has the hottest ‘models’, ‘fitness girls’ and swimsuit models’ on the internet.
In reality, as a simple live cam site, there isn’t much about Camversity (as an audience member) that you can’t find on other platforms like Chaturbate, Cam4 or Flirt4Free. However, it is the community offered by the models, for the models that seems to be a bit of a draw for the broadcasters themselves.
With their own community website offering tips, news and advice about the camming industry as well as popular culture, sex and other information, there is a feeling that the company behind Camversity is doing more than its rivals to create one big happy family. And that’s a great thing for the average visitor to the site. The happier and more content the models are then the better the retention rates are and the harder they will work to earn some cash.
Another driving force behind this site is the fact that it was designed with the help of some big names in the industry, including Jess Victoria, Reya Sunshine, Sandra Popa and Lena the Plug. These ladies all broadcast on the site and support the ethos behind the platform; empowering women in the camming industry.
Camversity is also created with ‘leading-edge technology’ and boasts HD feeds, super-fast streaming and reliable and robust cyber security systems. This can be seen in some of the features on the site as well which include being able to watch multiple tabs so you can watch several models simultaneously.
Lastly, the acquisition of traffic for Camversity is high-quality and that is excellent news for the models themselves. The marketing team are actively driving visitors to the site that are likely to interact with, and tip, the girls rather than simply concentrating on huge traffic volumes that don’t pay to be part of the show.
What Does Camversity Cost?
Marketed as a 100% free camming site, flirting and chatting with the models on Camversity won’t cost you a dime but if you want to get a private chat or to encourage some more action via tipping then you will need to upgrade to a Premium Account by purchasing tokens.
Tokens cost between $0.08 and $0.12 each depending on how many you buy with the current bundles being available:
|No of Tokens||Price||% Free Tokens|
Oh, and you can get 90 free tokens when you first register your Basic Account.
Once you buy tokens for your account, you will automatically be upgraded to a premium membership which also means that you can:
- Watch multiple cam chats
- Follow your favorite models
- Send unlimited private messages to models
- Join any Public Show for free
- Customize your chat room (fonts, sound effects, color schemes etc)
- Start Private, True Private, Spy, and Group shows
Premium members certainly get more immediate attention in group chats from the models themselves plus you also get bonus discounts for your next purchase of tokens.
Payment can be made by credit card or via PayPal.
There are several ways to pay for chat sessions on Camversity, each having their own flat rate of charges:
- True Private (no spies allowed) – 80 tokens/min
- Private (‘spies’ can take a peek) – 60 tokens/min
- Spy Mode – 20 tokens/min
- Group Chat – 10 tokens /min
As for tipping, this is down to the audience themselves although targets are offered by the cam models as well as a ‘menu’ of activities that they will perform for cash.
For Cam Models
As a site that is designed by cam models, Camversity has focused on simplicity when it comes to their payment format.
All tokens are worth $0.05 to the model directly which is a straightforward 50% payout rate. It’s not the highest in the industry but it certainly isn’t the lowest. What’s more, the fact that it is a flat rate rather than being a sliding scale with various (and often changing) goal posts, it makes it far easier to calculate your income.
This is also true of the way shows are priced and models know upfront that they are earning:
- True Private – $4/min
- Private – $3/min
- Spy – $1/min
- Group – $0.50/min/user
As for tips, the model gets half of all the tokens they receive during their live streaming.
There are also other ways to earn money via your Camversity account including Model Bonus Specials.
Payouts are made weekly with the minimum transfers being $50 for US models and $1000 for international payments.
Camversity: We say…
The hope with Camversity is that by giving more freedom to the models themselves about how they monetize their streams, the platform will be able to offer more diverse broadcasts, attracting and retaining a better quality of model.
So far, the site has largely been cruising at the same volume of both models and traffic so there is little growth over the last 12 months to suggest that recruitment or marketing has been successful. However, we like the ambitions of this site and the ideas behind the platform are strong. We certainly appreciate women being in the driving seat and the happier they are in their job, the happier the audiences are to pay for their services. Oh, and less rules also means that there can be some surprises when you log in to Camversity.
The design of the site is slick and simple and we like the clean and bright color palette of yellow and white; it makes the HD feeds stand out far more and doesn’t clutter the screen.
As for the range of girls available…well, during our reviews we were treated to between 20 and 60 live streams at a time and there was a nice mix of women to choose from, even though the choice was more limited than at sites like Chaturbate or Flirt4Free. There are filters available to show you a selection of the most popular models, the newest ladies or even by the date of last log-in. Geo-filtering is however restricted to continent rather than country.
Finally, as for the costs involved for audiences, the rates are competitive and you do get good quality entertainment for what you pay.
Overall, we have very few negative things to say about the quality offered on Camversity. We are all for diversity and promoting empowerment to the people who do the hard work so we would definitely encourage you to try the site out. Camversity may not be the biggest camming site on campus but it definitely has the potential to go far in the world.
