Today, on August 17, 2018, Play2Live has officially announced the launch of beta testing of the streaming platform on the blockchain. First access to the testing phase will be granted to media representatives and accredited streamers in order to check the operational capacities of the platform’s basic functionality. On August 20, the platform will be opened to the general public.
On August 17, 2018, Play2Live has officially announced the launch of beta testing of its streaming platform on the blockchain. Accredited journalists will be the first to get access to the platform today. Two days later, all those interested can start joining the beta testing phase. In the opinion of the leading experts, the main benefits of the project include the possibility of buying LUC Tokens directly from the platform’s website. The coins can be used for implementing different monetization options, including donations, voting, and for assigning special tasks to streamers. The neural network developed by the project team will be responsible for monitoring the fulfillment of assigned tasks. Play2Live fan Alexei Burdyko noted that users are in for a vast number of innovations and new features. Some developments have never been used in e-sports before.
Alexei Burdyko said: “We have been preparing the release of the beta version since the spring of 2018 when the investment campaign of the project (ICO) was completed. Throughout this time, we have strengthened the team and were able to develop and implement a number of innovations not only for Play2Live itself but for e-sports in general. With the start of public use of the basic functionality of the project, everyone can earn LUC Tokens, thanks to their internet channels, and you can buy the tokens directly from us via our official project website,” Alexey noted.
To accelerate the delivery of content from the streamer to the viewer, the creators of Play2Live have implemented the CDN (Content Delivery Network) technology on the platform. It is a geographically distributed network infrastructure that allows users to optimize the delivery of streamed videos to end users. The CDN increases the upload speed of video, software, game and other digital content in various system access points.
While describing the benefits of using the Content Delivery Network, CTO of Play2Live Vladislav Arbatov added that the platform has become even safer: “Thanks to the immense computing power, unpretentious software and distributed architecture, the CDN is extremely resistant to DDos attacks, which are the most common means of hacking projects. We have become even more protected and are continuing to invest in our security protocols. For example, we have added our own Level Up Chain blockchain, which supports 10,000 transactions per second and cryptographic “keys”. Thus, Play2Live will be the first platform in the world that uses compact devices to provide information protection to the user and ensure the safety of their identification. I want to emphasize that all this is the basic functionality of the platform and many new features are not far off, but for now, we are asking all testers to send feedback to help.p2l.tv develop further”.
In June, the developers of the project announced the creation of a neural network for the implementation of the functionality of interactive Tasks. They have implemented algorithms for real-time monitoring of streaming videos, recognition of complex objects, and video content with the help of a neural network. Now users can assign interactive tasks to streamers, and the neural networks will track their fulfillment. By voting on Play2Live via LUC Tokens, users can set the price for the performance of specific tasks by their favorite streamers, for example, pass the game at the highest difficulty level, or use only certain weapons at a particular time on a suggested map (for example, in fortnite – “eliminate 10 opponents in the factory using only sniper rifles”).
Another important component of the beta is the testing of the multicasting functionality. At different stages of the launch, several hundred streamers will be connected to the platform, who will be providing content for the most popular games. This functionality will be used for broadcasts of e-sports tournaments. Play2Live already has vast experience in international competitions, as the company organized the “CryptoMasters” games in Minsk on February 24-25, 2018. It was the world’s first large-scale e-sports tournament in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, where the winners received a prize equivalent to $100,000. Competitions were broadcast on the MVP-version of the Play2Live platform in seven languages.
Currently, Play2Live is one of the most successful blockchain projects of 2018. The company managed to close the hard cap at $30,000,000. Play2live strives to unite blockchain systems and streaming services, where users can earn and spend funds in more than 15 ways, which is three times more than on any of the available counterparts.
In the beta version of the platform, streamers can take advantage of several options for monetizing their content, including a system of donations, tasks and voting, as well as subscriptions to streams for LUC Tokens that can be purchased directly on the Play2Live platform. According to the project’s management team, further updates will be released very soon. Follow the project’s latest news on its official website and in social networks:
How Cryptocurrencies Will Change Online Gambling in the Future
Anyone who has followed online gambling since the beginning can tell you that things don’t stay the same for long. One of the reasons for this is that technology improves at such a ridiculously fast pace, and innovators in this industry are able to match up with those technological changes pretty quickly.
An innovation in technology that the Internet gambling industry has really learned from is cryptocurrency, with bitcoin in particular leading the way. We’ve seen it emerge as an alternative banking method, but it’s going to change the industry as a whole in ways that people can’t quite understand yet.
A Post-Legality Era
Something that has eluded online gambling since its inception is the idea of a global governing body. As it stands right now, each individual country (and smaller units of jurisdiction) have their own governing bodies that oversee in the industry. A lot of these laws are tied to banking laws, and that’s where the legality of playing in bitcoin casinos becomes such an interesting topic.
In the present, we’re seeing country-based regulatory bodies from places like Malta, Gibraltar and the United Kingdom start to work together and recognize each other’s licenses more and more. That’s taking serious steps towards having a global governing entity, and once that happens, the role of bitcoin is going to be even larger than it is now because it’ll…

How to Secure Yourself in Relation to Bitcoin: Top VPN Services
Nowadays, more frequently people opt to use cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin while dealing with financial transactions for its convenience, so its increasing prevalence isn’t round-of-the-mill phenomenon but still, its users need to create fully protected cooltechzone to secure their data.
Recently, a great abundance of VPNs have started to accept it as a way of payment and it definitely makes sense: one buys VPN to retain anonymity on the Web, so why not to use the privacy-focused payment method? Paying for a VPN service with Bitcoins or any other cryptocurrency secures personal data from curious eyes leaving no traces.
What is a VPN?
Virtual Private Network (VPN) is generally presented by the group of linked to each other computers via the Internet. VPN boosts protection and provides a high level of anonymity to all types of Internet connections.
While the connection to the ordinary Wi-Fi networks, a user usually gets access to the Internet directly, thus he becomes vulnerable to the hackers and the malware attempting to steal his personal data. On the other hand, applying VPN one transmits and gets data in encrypted form which makes it protected.
Generally, isn’t hard to trace an Ip-address of any user and to identify his location with sufficient accuracy. With the help of VPN, the attacker will only get the address of the removed computer. Undoubtedly, the safeguard…
