Steem-Engine and D.Tube are partnering up!

in #scottube5 years ago (edited)

Great news! The Steem-Engine and D.Tube teams are partnering up to bring you ScotTube!

What's Scot, Scotbot and ScotTube?

Scot is a smart contract organizational token. You can use the word "Scot" like the word coin or token, but it's specific to living on the steem-engine platform.

Scotbot is a voting program that allows us to distribute rewards through proof-of-brain similar to how steem distributes rewards, but now the settings are customizable and it's your Scot.

You can see those rewards displayed on sites like Nitrous, an enhanced fork of condenser where content discovery and rewards are powered by your own Scot token, on your own domain name.

We're working on ScotTube, something similar to Nitrous, but now focused on video through partnering with D.Tube. So, you post videos up and they get rewarded in Steem and your Scot. ScotTube displays rewards on your custom site in your custom Scot!

Why does this matter?

There's really only going to be a handful of winners for who gets to show videos of everything to everyone, but for the rest of us there's going to be a need to have curated content. You just want to watch cooking shows? Make a ScotTube that focuses on that. Want one for a particular game? Make a video channel just for the game.

Curated content is the future. The internet has everything, but it's too much of a pain to search. Get content that's focused, good, and curated in one place and the internet will reward you for it.

How will it work?

Pricing hasn't and isn't being announced publicly right now, but Scot and Scotbot are moving from monthly payments to staked eng requirements. Having an instance of ScotTube will increase how much eng you have to have staked, but won't cost anything beyond owning (or renting delegated) stake.

We're getting the details worked out now

In the end there will be a form on the steem-engine launch site to make your Scot, Scotbot instance, and choose how many different UIs (Nitrous, ScotTube, others) you want to be able to display your scot rewards through. ScotTube will be one such option and we're stoked to bring it to the public soon!


My cryptobody is tingling! Been loving steem engine ever since it got launched.

It's nice to read all this!
We are so excited to start with Scotbot + ScotTube!
We have raised the necessary funds, so let's get ready to go!

I like this plan, but I feel like you guys are planning to go for a separate chain in future :/ I don't know why I have this feeling, but I have it now! Anyway wish you all the best!


Sometimes I feel the same way🤔🤔

Awesome, looking forward to this! I guess I should hang on to my ENG :)

IPFS + Steem-Engine is a great idea. I'm always interested, 24/7 ... to support IPFS developments

Incredible at what pace you throwing out new stuff. You clearly want to show Steemit how it's been done. What a joy to experience in action.

Sounds pretty awesome, I keep hearing about having to stake this stuff but I am not clean as to how or what is required to do so? I do stake POS coins myself but this seems like something else are there directions on this please?

I bet you can get it from there.

aggwoed im havin an argument with @swapsteem about how much POW is actually involved, when you mentioned this about cpu gpu and asics

CPU version mines at 1X
GPU version mines at 2X
ASIC version mines at 3X

what was this about? is it liek Virtual mining? is it actually going to let you use your cpu in a limited way that doenst consume the power but checks to see if you have it? or is it just called CPU, GPU, and ASIC as a pure marketing ploy to simply represent three "tiers" of "mining" ? :D Im guessing no POW mining at all?

No POW at all

Steem Engine Team is on fire 🔥

GOING UP! Keeps getting better for the People BY THE PEOPLE!
