Hi there! Thanks for visiting my website! My name is Will and I enjoy designing Bitcoin and crypto t-shirts. Another passion of mine is making videos! Recently I have been putting more effort into uploading videos to DTube and YouTube.

DTube is an app on the STEEM blockchain for uploading and sharing videos. It’s pretty awesome and you can start earning a profit on your uploads immediately. YouTube, in comparison, requires content creators to have 4,000 watch hours in the previous 12 months AND 1,000 subscribers to be REVIEWED to join the YouTube Partner Program. And if approved, then you can start getting paid.

Personally, I think DTube is a game changer and the site has seen some sweet improvements as of late. More on DTube:

D.Tube is the first crypto-decentralized video platform, built on top of the STEEM Blockchain and the IPFS peer-to-peer network.

The Type Of Videos I Love To Make

I enjoy making a variety of videos, but primarily I focus on travel experiences, videos about my cars, fitness, snowboarding, and drone flights.

These are some of the top videos on my channel:

John Oliver Covers Bitcoin And Cryptocurrencies On Last Week Tonight

John Oliver Covers Bitcoin And Cryptocurrencies On Last Week Tonight

John Oliver is an English comedian, writer, producer, political commentator, actor and television host. He is most known for is work on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and now he is making a name for himself on his very own show on HBO called Last Week Tonight.

Quite recently he released an entire episode covering Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

Oliver does a great job aggregating information to explain Bitcoin:

“I’m a virtual currency, worldwide, that you can send for little to no fees, open source, not controlled by any government, corporation or individual. It’s financial freedom BRO!”

He even brought on Don Tapscott, author of Blockchain Revolution: How the Technology Behind Bitcoin Is Changing Money, Business, and the World, who spoke on the security of blockchain technology:

“A blockchain is a very highly processed thing like a chicken mcnugget and if you wanted to hack it it would be like turning a chicken mcnugget back into a chicken. Now someday someone will be able to do that but for now it’s going to be tough.”

We commend John Oliver for covering Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, which we believe are the future of finance and data recording.

For much of the episode Oliver focuses on responsibility when investing in cryptocurrencies telling viewers to not invest any more than they could afford to lose, which is a pretty standard phrase in any financial market. But still good advice.

John Oliver also hones in on the EOS project, which he clearly does not understand. He reads off the initial coin offering numbers scoffing at how much value the EOS team has raised. Oliver also doesn’t understand Block.one’s obscure mission statement and relationship to the EOS blockchain. Launching a cryptocurrency that competes against state created fiat currencies is highly illegal according to governments. Block.one does not want to be held directly responsible for the launch of the decentralized network. If governments could find out who Satoshi Nakamoto is, you had better believe they would kill him.

Watch the episode below:

Dear John Oliver – By eosio On Medium

Block.one’s CTO Daniel Larimer has previously built and deployed two of the most used (and “usable”) decentralized applications to date. Having originally worked on the development of Bitcoin and feeling it would not adequately perform, Dan developed a scalable high performance Blockchain architecture, now widely known as Delegated Proof of Stake (DPOS); today DPOS processes the majority of all blockchain transactions globally.

EOSIO is designed to leverage DPOS and familiar scripting languages to enable developers and businesses to more easily take advantage of high performance blockchain capabilities, and deploy open source community driven business models.

Block.one believes Blockchain technologies have the potential to become the next mainstream infrastructure for communication and commerce, and can introduce new freedoms while streamlining compliance and universal interoperability. The company is committed to the technological and regulatory innovation required to push forward on common ground for developers, users, businesses, and regulatory agencies around the world.

Block.one and community contributors make continual progress on the development of the EOSIO platform that can be viewed on the EOSIO Github, a fully transparent hub where the real time progress of feature creation through to completion can be viewed and contributed to.

They then discussed Brock Pierce, who is now moving on to independent community building and investment activities. In short the Block.one crew has no hard feelings and is thankful for his contributions.

They went on to say:

As a growing company building value through an open source community as opposed to traditional avenues of proprietary software ownership, we are conscious of the importance of robust corporate communications. We take professional standards seriously and are always focused on raising the bar as our company transitions from startup to aggressive growth. We value acknowledgment of room for continued improvement and remain confident in our mission to further the impact of Blockchain as a foundational technology.

Thanks again for the entertaining reminder to stay informed when it comes to new industries, concepts, and people.

New STEEM App, DMania To Compete Against 9GAG And Other Meme Sites.

New STEEM App, DMania To Compete Against 9GAG And Other Meme Sites.

DMania is one of the newest apps on the STEEM blockchain. The project aims to build a website to compete against 9GAG and other internet meme sites.

9GAG is popular online platform and social media website for collections of Internet memes. It was launched back in 2008.

As of November 2017 the meme site had over 223 million visitors with the following breakdown: 11.03% from Germany, 5.55% from the United States, 4.40% from France, 4.19% from Brazil and 3.99% from United Kingdom – Wikipedia

There are heated debates on Steemit right now about DMania being a positive or negative for STEEM. Is DMania for plagiarism and stealing others original work or creativity or harmlessly sharing images and data online?

Are jokes worth money? The comedians who make a living making people laugh would say yes.

We Think DMania is a cool and interesting project in the Steemit blockchain ecosystem. We shall see if it gains traction and attracts high volume of website traffic. 9GAG certainly does.

Music Producer Launches His Own Blockchain Token

Music Producer Launches His Own Blockchain Token

Tech companies aren’t the only one launching blockchain tokens these days. Music artists are now utilizing blockchain tech to protect their work and earn revenue without labels and banks.

According to Wikipedia Gramatik AKA Denis Jašarević, is a Slovenian electronic music producer, originally from Portorož, Slovenia. He currently resides in New York City making genre-fusing electronic music.

On November 10, 2017, Gramatik launched his own blockchain token called GRMTK. He released 25 million GRMTK ERC20 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain.

Gramatik – ” I waited for the release of a platform like SingularDTV that uses Blockchain technology to pass me intermediates. I just want to get my music out when I want and on my own terms. I want to get rid of all this bureaucracy. I just want to make music. In a world that belongs to banks and businesses, Blockchain technology is pretty much the only thing that gives me hope for the future. ” source

Want to launch your own blockchain token?

There are several ways and several blockchains you could consider for launching blockchain tokens and initial coin offerings. If you ask us, we say wait till the EOS launches this summer and build it on that blockchain platform.

Ethereum is another popular blockchain platform for tokenization. There are currently over 510 ERC20 tokens on Ethereum.

STEEM is also coming out with SMART MEDIA TOKENS for content platforms to tokenize with a stake weighted voting system like Steemit has.

New DTube Swag! Available Now!

New DTube Swag! Available Now!

DTube is quickly becoming one of the top STEEM apps and we are super excited. It is already providing tremendous value to the STEEM community.

D.Tube is the first crypto-decentralized video platform, built on top of the STEEM Blockchain and the IPFS peer-to-peer network.

D.Tube is a great alternative to YouTube for content creators and we wanted to add some gear for DTube enthusiasts and supporters.

DTube and Steemit are both decentralized apps on The STEEM blockchain. Dtube is an application fully written in javascript, that runs in the browser, that allows you to upload and watch videos on top of the IPFS Network. The app uses STEEM (which has a3 second block time) as a database and enables monetization directly from both uploads and engagement on the platform.

The Gear:

More On The D.Tube Project

 

Crypto incentive

D.Tube aims to become an alternative to YouTube that allows you to watch or upload videos on IPFS and share or comment about it on the immutable STEEM Blockchain, while earning cryptocurrency doing it.

Resistant to censorship

Because of the decentralized nature of IPFS and the STEEM blockchain, D.Tube is not able to censor videos, nor enforce guidelines. Only the users can censor it, through the power of their upvotes and downvotes.

A fair platform

On DTube, there are no hidden algorithms controlling the visibility or monetization of certain videos over others. All of DTube’s data is public, and can be analyzed by anyone with an internet connection.

Ads free

To deliver the best user experience D.Tube runs without advertising. Users remain free to advertise any product or service they would like, directly inside their own videos, at their own risk of losing their subscribers.

About IPFS:

IPFS is a protocol that enables decentralized file storage. The principle behind it is called Distributed Hash Tables (DHT). The same principle also powers the BitTorrent network. Just like how cryptocurrency uses asymmetrical cryptography, DHT networks will hash contents in order to be able to identify a file. The hash becomes the identifier of a file, and it’s as easy as re-hashing a file and making sure the hashes match to ensure the file that was sent to us is the original.

IPFS is an open-source and actively developed protocol. It has a bright future ahead.
