DLive, the largest blockchain streaming platform in the world is announcing some impressive growth figures and a new app launch today. The platform, which launched on the web six months ago, has shared that they recently hit 500,000 monthly active users. They also shared that their creators have earned a combined $2.6 million on the platform to date. Riding this momentum, DLive is launching on Android with the app available for download now on the company’s website.
Built on the Steem blockchain, DLive is a Twitch-style decentralized platform that is looking to dethrone the live streaming companies by using blockchain. By removing the middleman, DLive believes that they can democratize video streaming and return the ecosystem back to the creators and fans who make it so great.
For creators, DLive doesn’t take any share of their streaming revenue, giving them greater earning potential. Creators can also receive gifts from fans in the form of hearts, hugs, golden rings, and donations. DLive also has a dedicated team that monitors videos and pays creators directly for good videos. DLive uses the STEEM token as its primary currency.
“Blockchain has enormous potential to change how people stream and watch videos,” said Charles Wayn, CEO of DLive. “Today, the industry is dominated by a few massive companies who are incentivised to take money from their creators and push ads into content whenever possible. By decentralizing streaming, we can democratize video content while giving a better overall experience to viewers and creators. Creators on DLive also have a chance to find an audience and not get buried under millions of streamers, as with larger platforms.”
By decentralizing video streaming, DLive believes it is empowering the community to truly decide what kinds of content they want to see. Opting not to censor videos, content is surfaced based on how many upvotes or downvotes they garner.
Viewers also have the opportunity to earn tokens on DLive in a number of ways. They can earn tokens by upvoting content, making insightful comments, or referring friends to the platform. DLive currently doesn’t show any ads to the community a well.
“DLive has revolutionised streaming,” said David ‘Tidy’ Wyatt, a streamer from England who has made over $8,000 worth of STEEM on DLive since January. “Coming from a site where earnings are directly linked to your view count, DLive rewards its users based on content. I have told many fellow partners about this site, and they are loving it so far too.”
DLive was founded in Cupertino by Charles Wayn and Cole Chen. The company currently has over 20 members who are located across four continents and 19 cities around the world. Their Android app is available for download now on DLive’s website.
“DLive is an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to get into streaming or find a supportive community,” said Patrick Ulrich, who has been streaming on DLive for 5 months.“I never really planned on getting into streaming but I finally decided to join in some games with the friends I made on the platform. I couldn’t be happier that I did. Not only have I made lifetime friends, but I was able to finance a trip to the DLive meetup in NYC with the rewards I earned for my time here.”

Are Social Platforms The Way Forward In Cryptocurrency Investment?
Cryptocurrency investment is a term that can have expert eyes lighting up and newcomer brains fried. For those already within the cryptocurrency industry, talk of investment improvements is one that is consistently ongoing, with new innovations, priorities and demands consistently shaking up the discussion, but none has done this more than social platforms. While investment hasn’t been a ‘solo’ act, exactly, partaking in a social trade isn’t something that many investors, especially those of cryptocurrencies, will have much experience in doing. However, with leading platforms taking this on, could social platforms be the way forward in cryptocurrency investment? Read on to find out.
What Is Social Trading?
While social trading is technically nothing new, the rise of online and Internet-based trading have given this term a much more technology-based meaning. Essentially, social trading is the act of following the trading activity of another trader and usually copying what they do if there are enough trust and belief in their chosen action. Through online social trading platforms, giving and receiving feedback and mimicking the exact actions of another trader who may have more expertise is made extremely simple. Considering that trading is often based off of trends and market movement, traders could opt for following influencer activity as opposed to utilising indicators or trend analysis themselves.
Crowd psychology, often referred to as mob psychology, is a study within psychological science that looks at why individuals tend to follow…
Here Are 2 Revolutionary Decentralized Applications To Be Built On The Zilliqa (ZIL) Platform
As the crypto market continues to try and find a footing in terms of stability, the team at Zilliqa (ZIL) are continually making progress with respect to on-boarding teams for Decentralized Applications on the future MainNet that will be launched on the third quarter of this year.

- Spokkz – www.spokkz.com
- Bolt – http://bolt-token.global
The first DApp, Spokkz, is a community-driven film and TV blockchain ecosystem that is an initiative of Spuul. Users will be able to view, vote, fund and support their favorite media projects in a decentralized system and marketplace. This way, no one network has sole authority over airing a media production or even canceling it. We are all aware of instances where networks have canceled shows much to the protest of loyal viewers.
The project aims at cutting the monopoly of the large studios and associated middlemen who impose their will on the viewers. The concept is based on crowdfunding, as earlier mentioned, where viewers will join producers, content creators, distributors, stars and advertisers as equal shareholders.
The second DApp, Bolt, also aims at cutting out the middlemen that mark up the cost of having media content accessible to the end user. Bolt will be an…
This is Why Crypto ATMs Are About to Become a Huge Deal
Trilliant ATMs Allow Everyone Easy Access to the Highly Lucrative Cryptocurrency Sector

In addition, Trilliant’s ATMs feature a state-of-the-art touch screen, card reader and PIN pad and a front-facing camera for optimal client verification (KYC – know your customer) and additional inbuilt security measures to protect investor’s assets.
