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.

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.
