The YouTube Channel is a relic... they've put it into a bizarre state where everything, including videos of Tommy handing a crowd funded electric wheelchair to a disabled child, are restricted...

Tommy isn't what the media portray him to be, and he never was.

Those of us working with him are absolutely determined to route around the big tech censors and that's one of the reasons I love having his material posted on Steem.

We should be posting his next video direct to 3speak later today.

If the media can make milquetoast Dave Rubin into an evil monster, Tommy Robinson is a walk in the park! lol

@brianoflondon you were gifted 150 Hobo tokens for believing in free speech.

The Hobo token will be the token that will bring the world truly decentralized journalism on Steem.

I've been following his account since day 1 on STEEM because I was curious about him given all the news, and at no point since did I think: this guy deserves to be silenced and attacked constantly. Maybe that makes me far-right sympathizer!

Or maybe you just don't like it when people are silenced for voicing unpopular opinions. Me, I don't necessarily agree with his politics, but it's accounts like these that are the reason decentralized platforms like the Steem blockchain exist... to give a platform for all types of opinions and views. It's up to the users to follow him or not.

I agree! Wanting to silence people just shows an inability to challenge people's ideas out in the open. People who have uninformed beliefs are those who seek to silence others. Whether or not their beliefs are correct, they don't have the ability to defend them, often because they are just parroting some thought leader. I am glad we have the ability to overcome that here. Cheers!

Great task, hope its a best search for this contest.

Someone who hasn't been mentioned yet would be: @laowhy86
Sadly, he isn't active anymore, but he's a pretty well-known China vlogger who has been demonetized by Youtube in the past. He even had his entire comment section blocked for a while.

I think his monetization might be back now, but I know 100% sure this was an issue in the past.

His Youtube channel:

An interesting post of his on why he initially joined Steem, also talks about censorship.


Category (3) Blockchain Influencer: How about: Ivan on Tech
200k+ subscribers on youtube - https://www.youtube.com/user/LiljeqvistIvan
Reason: Prominent speaker on blockchain technology.
Admittedly quiet on Steem but prolific content creator with typically 10,000+ views on each daily video

Did you watch his recent video where he declared STEEM has failed?

Hi Joshman - I'm afraid I didn't see it all but I know he mentioned that the bots have taken over on Steem. The rise of the bots are a reason to be concerned this is true - but I still see real engagement, I see it here on this page. I still see innovation on Steem, I see communities working together and genuine people being rewarded for completing valuable work. People can always change their mind: I read somewhere that a CEO of Microsoft once said he didn't think the iPhone would take any significant market share... I'd like to bet that he changed his mind...

Yes, that was his stated reason for while it has failed, but those were his words. Just curious. I mirrored your sentiments in the youtube comments.
at 9:45 is you want to listen for yourself.

Nice described to this question ans..

@daviddoel is the host of the progressive news show "The Rational National" He has 195k Followers on Youtube and is being demonetized heavily

There's also @thejimmydoreshow
He has 564k Followers on Youtube and while he doesn't talk much about being demonetized I can't imagine he isn't getting demonetized with what he talks about.

I think they both tried Steemit, but didn't really get traction and left.

"I think they both tried Steemit, but didn't really get traction and left."
Seems like a fairly large club. I wonder how many of them even still have their keys!?

Check out James Corbett of the Corbett Report - @corbettreport - he has not been 'deplatformed' (yet) but his videos are being hidden by YouTube algorithms. Some of these videos even reached 5 million views but you can't find them even using the 'exact title' in the search.
@theouterlight has been deplatformed but is regularly posting to Steem/Steemit and DTube. Same goes for @titusfrost.
All of these content creators often recommend/mention Steem/Steemit/DTube in their videos and I think deserve more attention and consideration.
Thanks, great idea!

Deplatformed and restored severally

Here is Brennon O'Neill, a YouTuber who stream video games
Link: https://www.youtube.com/user/GoldGloveTV
O'Neill boasts a strong following of over 1.3 million subscribers who have garnered him a staggering 323,082,349 views.

A great citizen journalist

William Jacobson is a Cornell University law professor was definitely popular in the conservative corners of the video-sharing. He hosts a channel tagged "Legal Insurrection" He was once terminated, but still youtubing

Crypto Influencer

@crypto.piotr has amazing marketing skills though may not be liked by many, but He;s doing a great job. He has a followership base of 4144 on Steem and has as much as 100 comments + on a single post

I wish to Add that you may Scout for Celebrities and Brands with top followership on facebook and Instagram to join us here. It would be a great booster for us here on Steem:

Dear @uyobong

crypto.piotr has amazing marketing skills though may not be liked by many

I'm speachless hahaha. Im fully aware that several people dislike me on this platform but majority of users seem to be very positive and loyal towards me :) lol


Yeah friend, we know what you carry as well as understand your motive, but some do not. Though, keep doing great jobs.

Was gonna recommend you. Seems someone already beat me to it. @crypto.piotr

Yep @crypto.piotr ...

"...majority of users seem to be very positive ..."

... I was very positive toward you in my recent "annual highlights" post, but ... You never even visited it, as far as I can see ... 😉

I'm sure you were busy, so not to worry ...


They were deplatformed from Facebook recently. I saw a tweet stating it and told them to come back to Steem as it was censorship resistant (no response). Seems they left 8mths ago due to issues uploading to dtube.

1.2 million YT subscribers

Might be worth reaching out to them.

That's a great find Justine. Appreciate your response. Cheers!!
We can certainly reach out to them and try once more. :)) Let's hope for the best. We should not miss on such talent.

Those guys are a riot! I didn't know they were on here! Love em!

Here, I will like to mention @ehiboss as a prominent Steemian and an influencer, particularly in Nigeria and sub-Saharan Africa. He's the brain behind the "SteemIT in Nigeria" (SIN) event which has been creating massive waves on air (within and beyond the crypto space) and has been one of the avenues to create massive adoption of the Steem blockchain in Africa.

The third annual edition (SIN3) of this event is coming up in August (UYO, Southern Nigeria) and no doubt, it will see many attendees signing up into the Steem blockchain.

i second this

@datadashofficial https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCatR7nWbYrkVXdxXb4cGXw
He has 315k subscribers and has an old steem account

I mentioned steem last time I spoke to him and he seemed surprised at the development. I have his nr if you want to get in touch. Let me know on discord.

He's a good guy. I'd probably let him date my sister. JK
I do frequently watch his stuff though, and it's good.

First of all, thank you sir for giving us a chance to share the name of some amazing steemians. I am very happy to nominate @stephenkendal,
He is the who is giving us technical analysis on different coins and promoting steem and other coin.
