Congratulations!


You have now successfully set up a Steemit account and logged into Steemit and DLive. Now is some basic information about these platforms to get started.

What is Steemit?


Steemit is a decentralized social networking platform where users are rewarded in crypto-currency for blogging, commenting and upvoting (liking) content! When a user creates a blog post or even comments or likes a post, the receive pay-outs in Steem and Steem Dollars which are trade-able crypto tokens. When a user receives a pay-out, by default 50% goes to Steem Power which are Influence tokens which give you more control over post pay-outs and allow you to earn on curation rewards, and the other 50% goes into your Steem Dollars (SBD) Wallet. A user also has the option when posting, to receive payment in 100% Steem Power or 100% Steem Dollars once Steem Power reaches a certain threshold.

Awesome! What is DLive?


DLive is a decentralized video live streaming platform that adds to the Steemit platform by enabling users to live stream and upload videos to the Steem network. Because DLive is decentralized every user has an equal opportunity to succeed on the platform! With centralized platforms out there, users may find it hard to grow an audience and earn money because they are not as valuable to the organization running the platform. These platforms have very stringent requirements to qualify for their affiliate programs and it usually takes a substantial amount of time to get to that stage. With DLive however, you can start earning straight away! Just like with Steemit, users are rewarded for posting their content as well as upvoting and commenting on others. What’s more, is that DLive does all this without any micropayments, advertisements or even taking a cut! Everyone has the potential to be successful on this platform.

Do you know why the active key is required. Why not just the posting key? What is the reasoning behind needing more accesses than the posting key.

That's a good question! I would also like to know the answer to this. I would suggest joining the discord, the DLive team is always happy to answer questions.

Was this Question cleared up yet ?

Yeah, Has this question answered yet ?

I believe it is due to using steem connect and steem connect requires the active key.

Thanks for sharing, Great article

Cheers! Means a lot. :)

When you want to Flag them but see their Steem power lol

i dont care about the money u got, cos if u battle me u gonna get dropped.

Thank-you for your contribution!

Happy to help!

Thank you. Am I right in thinking that DLive is simply the storage and delivery mechanism and it is connected to the steem platform which is where payments etc happen?

Yep the are both connected to the steem platform - DLive simply adds a few features that enable users to live stream video content.

Great Post ! Thank alot fo sharing, much appreciated :-)

Thanks for this great how-to, and for creating DLive - what a great system on steem blockchain!

I have one note about the livestreaming infrastructure.

It appears that you are using wowza for the livestreaming part - which is quite centralised in terms of service providers.

I would like to introduce you to Livepeer (http://livepeer.org) which is building a decentralised livestreaming protocol platform on Ethereum Blockchain.

This handles video-transcoding and relaying of RTMP streams, based on an RTMP endpoint.

For more information, or for help getting started with Livepeer, please contact me at http://gitter.im/chrishobcroft or join the community at http://gitter.im/livepeer - thanks.
