Assumption: DTube Will Become The Most Relevant Steem Application In 2018 || Btw: Just Killed My Voting-Bot In Order To Manually Curate Video Content ✅

If you're not putting out relevant content in relevant places - then you don't exist. - Gary Vaynerchuk

As fulltime geeks the digital mark we leave online actually defines our existence.

To outstand in this fast growing market is our daily struggle. The pursuit of attention, the attempt to produce something relevant, the desire to inspire and make a difference is our constant challenge.

From all applications that have been built on the Steem blockchain so far, I firmly believe that @dtube is the most seminal. Video content is the dominating element in the digital world and it will be in the future.

Decentralized eco-systems such as the Steem blockchain, where (video) content creators can be finally rewarded in a way they deserve it, will bring digital communication to the next level.

Here's my prediction for 2018: DTube will become Steem's main driver to success!

Self-proclaimed dtuber: @surfermarly showing her DTube account

Paving the way for YouTube's successor

As I mentioned in my last video, it's not the product that defines its own potential, it's the market that does.

If the market claims a solution for a specific problem, then there is a lot of potential.

Now DTube perfectly recognized the video market's need for a decentralized organization of video content distribution. Market leader YouTube is facing constant copywrite/censorship issues, and many established youtubers have already announced their exit. They're annoyed by an excessive regulation that considerably steals their valuable time and limits their creativity.

On the other hand content consumption on YouTube is also not state-of-the-art anymore. Since tokenized environments have been created, advertisement has lost its leading position in content monetization. Users are pretty aware of the fact, that they don't have to click themselves through a jungle of ads anymore in order to consume quality content.

Thanks to the tokenization of content distribution networks, advertisement as the no. 1 solution for content monetization has become obsolete.

Here we go - DTube's key drivers to success:

  1. Decentralized, uncensored and self-governed environment ✅
  2. Based on one of the most efficient blockchains in the world ✅
  3. High-ranking and potential network of developers, investors and partners ✅
  4. Easy user accessibility free of charge ✅
  5. Ergonomic and intuitive user interface ✅
  6. Financial incentive / refinancing opportunity ✅
  7. Fast growing high potential user network ✅
  8. Professional support / competent team ✅

@dtube's last update post on steemit.com was seen 22,441 times!

Link to the original article published by @heimindanger:D.Tube 0.6: Pushing it to the limit

That's a clear sign that the article was opened by a large number of people that are not part of the Steemit community.

The market's starting to react!

I'm pretty convinced that, if Steemit Inc. doesn't launch its application very soon (which was actually announced for December 2017), then it'll be hard to compete with the fast growing video app in the near future.

According to their last update (see link above), the DTube team is relatively small. Still they're incredibly efficient. To the question if their day had 25 hours, @heimindanger replied:

We are actually pretty lazy and maybe doing 5-6 hours a day but we are pretty motivated for DTube and the 3 devs all have good experience in what they are building for DTube. 3 devs+1 server admin is a pretty small team, so it's easy for me to communicate to everyone and it's pretty effective I believe.

Another great plus: communication is a priority.

The team is pretty transparent about their activities, keeps the community posted about their doings and seems to be fully committed.

Also their communication channels are open 24/7. I'm frequently checking DTubes discord channel by myself, and the dynamic always amazes me: constructive, supportive and efficient. Nice job, guys! :-)

Since I firmly believe in DTube's high potential, I just closed my Steemvoter account in order to curate video content manually.

According to @steemworld, the current value of my 100% vote is $2.31.

It may be just a drop in the entire rewards pool, but for new users it's definitely able to make a difference. So my focus will be on talented new comers that create smart video content.

For the time being I'll allocate 10 x 100% upvotes per day on dtube videos in order to fully support the application's growth.

I'm all in - and you? :-)
Marly -

I think you're probably correct for 2018, dtube certainly is in the running. I've wanted to start some 'vlogs' of my recipes, perhaps I should hurry. In addition to you being correct, I think there are some 'apps' ( or ideas of 'apps') for the steem blockchain that haven't been thought of yet. That's what excites me about the future of steem.

Good call on letting the auto vote bot go. I think you will find manual curation more rewarding.

·

Oh yes, I remember that we were talking about your vlogs in one of our last conversations! I'm pretty sure that you'd be doing great. Looking forward :-)
There are surely a lot of apps in the pipeline. It'll be extremely intersting to see what's going to be launched during the next months. For the time being I go with DTube, but I'm open to any project that may appear in the future.

Manual curation is the only way to really control your VP and fully support quality content. I'm happy to be back at my roots :-)

·
·

"apps in the pipeline"

I see what you did there :-)

·
·
·

What do you mean by what you did there?

·
·
·
·

isn't pipeline a surfing term?

·
·
·
·
·

Ah now I got it! You mean the barrel (or tube) :-)
We actually call it: getting barreled. Well I wish I had done it already, still working on my technique, haha

·
·
·
·
·
·

Well, that shows how much I know. The only surfing I know how to do is surfing the web.

·
·
·
·
·
·

So, a SEA-tube instead of D-Tube?

·
·

Uploading my first D Tube video right now. Pretty disappointed in the length of time it's taking to upload a 1:26 minute video. I have a thriving YouTube channel, and post an average of 4 videos per day. Most are about 3 minutes in length. Because I provide breaking news and political commentary that I narrate in my home studio, upload speed is significant. This is a deal breaker for the type of content I provide. Over 30 minutes and still not even 50% completed. Bummer.

·

I Just said to myself I want it to happen organic this is such a beautiful thing i just setup my Dtube I have great content coming soon hope to see you there. Diversity is key

@surfermarly! Nice to see you. I was a bit shocked reading how you plan to change your voting habits and focus only on Dtube. At first it sounded like you were ditching all your friends to start hanging out with the new kid because they had something more to offer. I do see a lot of potential in Dtube as well though. I've been promoting it in private to a few Youtubers I know. Dtube will require solid curating efforts in order to succeed, so I can see why you're headed down that road now. It does make sense.

People need to be careful though. Those big record company pimps and their lawyers will pounce on those not respecting copyright. They can have that place shut down faster than you can say, "It's too late to apologize, it's too late(So sick of that song)."

I realize we're surrounded by many who think copyright is a joke and not worthy of their time, but that doesn't matter. I personally reserve the rights to most of my work simply because that's the language those hustlers in the big media corporations speak. I don't do it for selfish reasons. I put on my show for free and most days end up giving the patrons of my artform a tip for stopping by. It's the exact opposite of selling out. If these big media hustlers try to shut down Steemit because of a few bad actors, I'll save a lot of time and money when it comes time for them to start paying me restitution for shutting down my business and stealing my work. In other words, I reserve the rights to my work to defend myself against those hustlers. Artists fought for these rights long ago. Corporations started abusing it.

All that being said, if we want Dtube to be successful, we can't allow people to get sloppy. They must create their own videos from the ground up. They can't be borrowing music, for instance, because that's all it takes for those hustlers to get angry. Dtube is small right now. All those lawyers have to do is snap their fingers and the place is gone. That's where solid curating comes into play. Only original content should be rewarded.

I don't want to see the place fall. Those are my main concerns. How was that for ramble? I'm not even going to proofread! Have a nice day!

·

Hey @nonameslefttouse! First of all thanks for taking the time to reply in detail.

At first it sounded like you were ditching all your friends to start hanging out with the new kid because they had something more to offer.

It seems to be very human that if you stand up for something people only focus on the other options you didn't stand up for. It's as if I said that I love Coldplay and then people would ask: Oh wow so you dislike all the other bands then?

I personally see a lot of potential in DTube, and that's why I considered supporting new talents that are going to use this application in order to express themselves. Steemit.com has missed many options in the past, and now they'll have to deal with the consequences. A fancy Toggle Night Mode is nothing that pushes an application forward withing a fast growing market.

Now I 150% agree with your point regarding copywrite! Curating always included responsibility. I'm not a whale but still have some influence on what might become trending in a certain way. So I'm pretty aware of the package :-) Still thanks a lot for reminding me of the possible consequences. I'll definitely focus on creativity + copywrite protection!

These rules apply to any decentralized service built on the Steem blockchain. The next ones that'll have to deal with it will be the creators of @appics.

Again, thanks for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts!

PS: As you can see I didn't abandone Steemit and am still writing articles here. Just considered allocating my 2 Cents on video content for a while, that's all :-)

·

This part:

It seems to be very human that if you stand up for something people only focus on the other options you didn't stand up for. It's as if I said that I love Coldplay and then people would ask: Oh wow so you dislike all the other bands then?

So true. That's why I built you up, but didn't break you down. The picture became clear once I gave it more thought. Seems like everything needs to come equipped with a disclaimer these days. So annoying.

As for me... I took a long break from this place. Five months. I didn't abandon it either. Life happens. I came back and now more than anything I just want to see this place and everything else attached to it reach it's full potential.

Anyway. You keep doing what you're doing. You do a damn good job of it. Thanks for that generous vote. I got you back x2!

·
·
·

Haven't we all taken a break from this place in the past? :-) Those who joined early definitely did. It's a wild ride.

I appreciate talking to people in a way we've just done it, so thanks a lot!
As I pointed out in my last post: I'm not perfect either, and that's awesome. As long as we keep being vulnerable, we'll be the very best version of ourselves. So thanks for your encouragement and generous upvote, it means a lot! :-*

·

tbh i'm still working on that copyright thingy. i know its not a joke but i'm still pretty new to this content creating stuff. dam streaming was easier!. still i enjoy creating content (mainly gaming), i'm just having a huge feel for it. i'm just hoping i am not doing something wrong, and plagiarizing (if i am, it will mainly probably be for music) but i take great care not to.

I agree! I have been planning my first DTube video for a while now! I am still plotting! I was so excited by the new logo and increased amount of content. It's looking so great.

·

I couldn't agree more @stellabelle! It's growing extremely fast.
Looking forward to witnessing your first DTube action though :-)

·
·

I also am really happy you have stayed on the platform and created such good energy! We need as many people like you as possible. You show the world that you can get your needs met and do good things for society at the same time. Do you have a list of the best videos on DTube? I can see that it might be trouble spending days trying to find the best content. I'm thinking of creating an epic post to be published on Hackernoon about DTube since it's still not widely known.

·
·
·

Thank you so much for your incredibly nice words, hearing them from you means a lot to me! :-) It's not always easy to align social instinct with financial interests, but I think we're all on a very good way here.
I don't have a list of favourite clips yet, but I was thinking about posting my "favourite picks of the week" or something like that on steemit in order to provide some of the pearls with more attention and create more awareness for video content in general.

Great approach to spread the news on other relevant tech sites! Go for it 👍
I usually link my dtube videos on Twitter and try to make some noise there. The more talking the merrier...:-)

Thanks for your vote on my video - I agree DTube is cool but who knows if it will be THE app on the blockchain. This all probably depends on delegation of SP again. I did not kill my steemvoter but it is on pause - my VP is never recovering it seems from both vote scenarios - manual and automated - too much to vote it seems. Have a great weekend!

·

You're more than welcome!
I was facing the very same issues, 100% were never enough :-) Now I have full control: 10 upvotes per day that's easy to handle, haha!

Have a great weekend, too!

·
·

Ich bin trotzdem gespalten und es kommt auch auf die Basis / Standing der Steemians an - manche von den Großen bekommen definitiv automatisch die Votes ob sie selbst andere voten oder nicht. Was mich nervt ist, wenn solche Big Boys alle rausziehen hier und trotzdem von den anderen Big Boys im Kreis profitieren. Bei anderen die langsam wachsen und nix rausziehen und immer PowerUp machen bekommen viel weniger Votes wenn sie nicht auch Zurück-Voten. Das sit das Gesetz der früheren Geburt. Nix Neues - ich bin auch bei DTube insofern skeptisch, da deren Power von Delegation abhängt und wenn alle jetzt auf DTube springen werden wieder nur wenige gevoted. Ergo, das kann sich dann auch recht schnell wieder erledigt haben. Esta la Vida

·
·

DTube hat das Potenzial in kürzester Zeit an das Traffic Niveau von Steemit ranzukommen. Das hat keine andere App bis dato in dieser Zeit geschafft. Unabhängig davon, wie die Rewards dann verteilt werden, schafft das Produkt einen riesigen Mehrwert für Steem, weil es für Wachstum sorgt. Dass ein balanciertes Eco-System essentiell für die User Retention ist, ist auch klar. Da geb ich Dir voll Recht. Wenn das Geld weiterhin in den Händen von wenigen bleibt, und nicht breiter gestreut wird, haben wir auch von dem großen Traffic Zuwachs über Video langfristig nichts.

Ach man kann stundenlang darüber fachsimpeln, was wohl wäre wenn...:-) Wir werden es sehen! Und uns bis dahin noch ein paar Mal aufregen müssen, so wie immer - haha!

·
·
·
·

haha - ja aufregen fällt uns leicht. Ja, schau mer mal - das gute ist ja die Vielzahl der Apps. DMania für Fotos, DTube Video, DLive Streaming - wenn es nur nicht für alle wieder blockchain eigene Konkurrenten gäbe . was gut für die Blockchain wiederum ist. Ach was weiss ich denn :-)

·
·
·
·
·

...und Steepshot for Fotos (Stichwort Wettbewerb)! Hab ich allerdings noch nicht ausprobiert, weil es noch keine App fürs iPhone gibt. Jaaa ich weiß was Du jetzt sagst: Android ist eh besser :-D

·
·
·
·
·
·

Steepshot hab ich wie DMania einmal ausprobiert, View.ly macht das gleiche wie DTube - fand ich netter, da sie Dir nicht Prozente von den Rewards abziehen -und Android ist immer besser lol - Steemvoter ist wohl wieder ausgefallen übrigens :-(

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Ehrlich gesagt finde ich Steemvoter auch ganz schön teuer mittlerweile, wenn der immer ausfällt.

Ja, Dtube hat enormes Potenzial. Und mit dir eine hochkarätige Promoterin. Das deutsche "Netzwerksurchsetzungsgesetz" zwingt immer mehr Plattformen zum Sperren von Kanälen. Und wo werden die zensierten Autoren landen? Bei Steemit und Dtube.
Es lebe die Freiheit, die uns die Blockchain gibt.

·

Schön gesagt! :-) Und Danke für die Blumen.
Hab ein tolles Wochenende! Ich organisiere gerade die Details meines Skiurlaubs, yuhuuu! Endlich mal wieder Berge und Schnee.

Agreed. DTube is going to pave way for loads of new STEEM users!

·

It's the perfect store sign! :-)

Steemit has already become more and more my go to website daily and less and less YouTube as I see DTube grow. I plan to start making my own videos on DTube soon enough. This is literally game changing stuff and I am so happy I stumbled upon it as early as I did. It's amazing that no matter how hard they try to silence our free speech, people come up with platforms and technology like this to keep the game going. Let keep on steemin folks.

·

See you on DTube then :-)

Love this! I couldn’t agree with you more that attracting content creators from YouTube is going to be a huge way that we grow the Steemit platform. Lack of censorship and decentralization is a total game changer for content creators... not to mention the monitary rewards.

Kuddos to you for devoting your time and vote to curating on dtube!

·

Kuddos to you for devoting your time and vote to curating on dtube!

I've just started and already found some really cool clips! It'll broaden my own horizon, so it's a win win :-)

The way YouTube has been demonitising content for the last year or so might cause some content creators to start looking for a new platform. Only time will tell if they're willing to switch to dTube. It will be tough for many of them to bring along their viewers. Then again, it would only take a couple of influential content creators. Maybe they can start out by crossposting (posting on YouTube and on dTube).

I don't know much about the technical capabilities of dTube, what bandwidth can it support?

·

It will be tough for many of them to bring along their viewers.

They'll find a new audience on DTube then. Also views won't be that important anymore then :-)

For all technical questions you may follow the official steemit account @dtube and/or check out DTube's discord channel. There's also a group called #help where you can ask for support.

Thanks for always inspiring us to expand our reach. You are an inspiration
to the community and a creative contributor to the platform.

·

Thanks for your lovely words @team101! :-)

awesome contribution to the Dtube team and Steemit.

Dtube is certainly a huge alternative to youtube which, as I'm understanding as of late, is changing their rules on smaller accounts making it extremely hard to earn any $ if any at all. I really think as time marches on dtube will grow much larger. I've already seen posts on steemit as well as over on YT where people that I follow are reaching out and expanding through different outlets such as patreon and discord looking for something better. All I can do is drop a hint along with our link and hopefully they'll give us and dtube a shot? They really have nothing to lose and everything to gain in my opinion.

·

I've also seen YouTubers posting videos in which they are asking viewers to suggest alternatives to YT. Like you, I have mentioned DTube in the comments of their videos. I tell them that it isn't going to cost them anything to try it out.

·
·

Yep, and I think if they take that first step they'll see for themselves. Thanks for spreading the word. The alternative is most likely the same and that's not a good thing these days.

Highly commendable and worth appreciating. Your prediction about DTube in 2018 is going to be true because it has potential to become a top video tube.

People can access it without cost as it's decentralized blockchain. You have taken wonderful initiative to reward the talented video bloggers. They really need your appreciation.

Dtube is new but fast evolving. I see it almost everywhere now in most posts.
Youtube is gradually losing it.

i have knowledge about blockchain by this i hope i will many other
good activity

It is about keeping yourself motivated to write better..
It is about broadening your thinking..

please help me to upvote me

If @dtube ditches the ridiculous 7 day curation window and makes it indefinite... because some productions are just classic...

·

I've never understood why there is only a 7 day window for earnings. I know that @heimindanger is looking into other ways to monetize DTube videos beyond 7 days.

·
·

The 7 day window is blockchain based, it would require a hard fork to change it. It's not something you may adjust on an application level.

·
·
·

Thanks for the explanation but I still don't understand. I don't know what a hard fork is. I don't know what blockchain means either. I'm still trying to learn.

agree! I have been planning my first DTube video for a while now! I am still plotting! I was very excited. It's looking so much great.

Dtube is great, took some learning tho but am on to it now. cooking up my contents and getting set

Well Thanks so much for your encourgment. I have been thinking to start Vlogs of poetry. As you stated the coming time is belong to Dtube then i am going to make mind for Vlog sure.

You always teach me new things and give me innovation towards life for which i am Really Much Obliged :)

Stay Blessed, Steem On!

·

Go for it! This is a playground, the only thing you can lose is the money that's not yours :-D

·
·

Hahahahahaha Well said, which is not mine :P :P OOOOOppppps :D

Excellent!!I agree, dtube is going strong,there is a true competition for youtube and as more features are added to it the more we will continue to thrive.

Nice write up, it is interesting. I am following you, can you follow me @xtophercruzeu thanks

You vote me, my vote you

I feel Dtube is the future of decentralized social media platforms..
Steemit is Love and So is Dtube! Steem Ecosystem is Growing but Which Platform Has the Most Potential.
Steem ecosystem has grown a lot recently, with a lot of platforms and apps being built on Steem blockchain. Although thesthese projects aim to diversify Steem's economy, I don't approve any of them except Dtube. I think dtube is the best Steem based online media platform. There are others like zappl, steepshot, and dmania etc but all of them do not appeal me much
While I can, and wish to, talk at length about Dtube and other Steem based apps, I would like to mention that the video is about Steemit. It conveys my feelings of finding Steemit and gratitude of being able to be a regular Steemian. I encourage more people to share videos about Steemit. I certainly plan to populate my Dtube channel with Steemit related videos, especially tutorials.
Dtube Has to Keep Going & Growing. To be honest, I do not like Zaps, Steepshots and dMania memes appearing on my Steemit blog. That is why I am won't use these platforms. Dtube is an exception though. I love this platform.
In my opinion, Dtube has to keep improving. It has to keep becoming more intelligent with time and it must give tough time to YouTube, the default video platform of the world. There may be and will be a lot of hurdles for Dtube but it is a great platform and it needs to grow.

·

I'm open to any other application that has been and that's going to be built on the platform. Still from the range of products that are operative right now, DTube is the most advanced, thus the most promising.

Steem on and happy weekend!

I would say that DTube is likely to do really well because the timing is perfect. Not only is it a nice addition as another content format for Steemit, but its development has come hand in hand with YouTube/Google making life so hard for content creators that many are actively casting about for new places to publish. So it fills a niche.

DTube also has a great opportunity to become "The People's Video Channel" because it is probably more attractive to the smaller publisher, rather than those who are already publishing to a few million viewers. Which seems in keeping with the underlying ideal of Steemit to make people's lives better.

Bright Blessings to you @surfermarly!

·

DTube also has a great opportunity to become "The People's Video Channel" because it is probably more attractive to the smaller publisher, rather than those who are already publishing to a few million viewers.

To be honest, I don't think that a youtuber really cares about the number of followers. They only care because that's the number they're able to monetize: views. On Dtube that's not relevant, one single whale vote can change your daily income considerably. So what they care about is the number of $$ in their bank account at the end of the month :-) On DTube they may be able to make more money in a shorter period of time. I'm not talking about the top 10 most successful youtubers that have established contracts with advertisement partners and earn millions of dollars per month. These wouldn't become too happy on DTube right now.

Still the smart ones open their accounts as soon as possible in order to start growing their brands in the fast growing early adopters' market.

wall i dont know what to say on this

valuable post. i like it

I need to start up my Dtube blogging

I agree with you that Dtube is the future,I just recently joined this community and have decided to express myself through it. I really enjoy filming these videos and sharing my thoughts,hope maybe you will see some of them. I truly Like your profile :)

·

Nice vlog of yours! Just upvoted it with 100% :-)

·
·

Thank you :))

This is so great! You got the great point here......that's pretty cool to know....

Definetely think youtube will get kicked out of the video market! But it will take some time. And alot of updates.
Makes me excited to make videos again. Cheers!

dtube will be up there for sure. For me though, the current leader is utopian-io.

Luckily, I'm producing content for both ;) And also, I could be back getting a vote from ya soon too :p Maybe i'll have to fend off a few sharks or film myself running from a volcano - It's all possible dans l'ile de la Reunion!

·

Good point! Utopian-io is one of the leading products, too. Still it's not an app for everybody since it covers the niche of open source projects. That's surely a huge market, but it's nothing that'd be able to attract the masses. For that reason I'd go with DTube here :-)

Haha, as long as you don't risk your life for an upvote, I'd be happy to watch and upvote your extreme movies! :-D Go for ittttt!!!
Happy weekend :-)

·
·

Yes I suspect dtube will attract a wider audience, and 'sub-audience'.

They need more delegated SP. utopian-io has around 3.7 million, to dtube's 1 million last time I checked.

Hopefully mrdelegation will fix them up, for you(and us!)

Yes, I discovered Dtube for myself and I felt already the huge potential​.
It could be a game changer but honestly, ​I believe that Appics (the ​decentralized version of Instagram)will be the number one App based on the STEEM Blockchain.

·

You're right: Appics seems to be very promising, too. I saw their presentation at Steemfest². Still the app hasn't been launched, so I can't tell anything about it. Right now my favourite one is DTube :-)

Well done Marly, dTube really needs some attention with all the problems facing new YouTubers in the last few days. I'm trying to do my bit on the YouTube side, and as long as there are people helping out on the dTube end, I'll continue to funnel them this way.

·

Haha, I had a good laughter when you talking about YouTube in the beginning! :-D What a great piece of content - very professional and very informative! Just upvoted and shared your related steeemit post :-)

I totally agree with you @surfermarly . Dtube is a great app and thanks to you I found it by seeing your last post. I'm all connected and will upload. Btw the way loved your use of "outstand" I've never heard that used before but I like it!!!!

I think you're right about DTube becoming the most relevant Steem application. In the short time I've been using it, I've witnessed it improve immensely with a couple of updates which has encouraged more and more people to use it and watch it.

Add the fact that YouTube has once again moved the goal line for creators, many of whom are disgruntled and looking for an alternative platform, it could signal a significant growth in users for DTube.

I was just mentioning that Dtube's upload numbers have definitely grown in recent days.

I'm reminded that in the relay race of technology, YouTube was the front-runner who will soon hand off the baton to DTube. Decentralization, in conjunction with monetization, will have the wind at its back to propel it forward.

Thanks for this post.

Peace.

I invite you to see my video... Please make my dreams come true....
https://d.tube/#!/v/aaronchr/r6o028r5

Marly, you created Steemvoter?

·

Haha, no I just used it.

Manually curating contents is the best way to do it! I'm glad you retired your voting-bot.

I think dtube is going to take a place of YouTube in 2018..when steemit is give a platform and we can see dtube is going to give us new platform in future...
Thanks for your post..

Thank you for going manual.

Yes!! I know youtube's apocalypse has led me to search elsewhere and HELLOOOO DTUBE!

Nice post keep it up bro

Very interesting...

great work

DTube is going to wipe the floor with YouTube. Game over Red Rover. =D

I'm with you! I maybe can't see the full potential of dtube, but for me it is amazing. We have dropped our youtube, and I make a daily vlog using dtube. It was a bit clunky at first, but now it is great. I hope they continue to iron out the kinks...then it will be unstoppable!🙃

These predictions are only meaningful if use of the apps, both for uploading and viewing, isn't fraught with problems for far too many people.
The idea is wonderful, the execution is still quite faulty,

You've basically hit all the nails on the head with this one! I'm very disappointed with YouTube and I've now converted to Dtube for these reasons

Beautiful thanks you hit the nail on the head nothing else to say because you have to want it.

Steeming 4 Life

I love DTube but I’m wondering how do you compare it to Viuly? Will they compliment each other like Vimeo and Youtube, or is there only room for one decentralized video platform?

100% agree with your @surfermarly, the Video is a tool that is marking the history and Steem Blocksains is not the exception, for the contrary is the bandguard of this event
and the video allows you to make a @originalworks

Excellent article thanks! followed and subscribed. As a video creator and a developer who just uploaded his first 2 videos to test the platform I was quite surprised how far these project got in such a short time with such a small team (3 devs + 1 op ???? wow). It truly amazing and its obvious the biggest challenges ahead will not be technology or resources but will actually happen when it gets big and creators (video or music) will find their content being freely plagiarized over the platform. This will hurt genuine artists as well big pockets and they will fight to bring it down or enforce censorship just like what happened on Youtube.

But for the time being, why the hell is the dtube thumbnail on steemit shows smaller than a thumbnail of Youtube link ?!

It will 100 become relevant this year

Hi @surfermarly ,if you like dogs,please look and my good Cezar😊

Thanks for all your help , greate Information

Hey Marly, great write up here! can you explain in a bit more depth why you have decided to manually curate on Dtube. I have been Dtubing for almost 3 months now, dang time flies, and I want to support people on Dtube in the same way you talked about (like people who are even newer than me). What is the best way to strategize to reward noobies and make my vote impactful? thanks for your help!

Oh, yes i agreeed with your notion. I know beter D tube has become decentralized streaming video, we may get paid from DTube in 2018.
