A prototype app will be released in the near future.

I am excited for a highly talented designer joining the project, so the app will look a lot better in due time.

Bye bye YouTube :)

Exactly I've been saying this IS the game changer for Steemit.. WHY post on Youtube when you can get paid to post here and not censored.. I'm tired of uploading to Youtube just to link here!! This is worth Powering Up all my other cryptocurrencies now!

In the short term, and for major YouTube names, the revenue generated from ad content is going to be difficult to replace. Some of these guys are making 6 and 7 figure revenue numbers from their channels.

I think where this is likely to get traction is with new people starting out and/or some of these guys cross-posting.

I'm a huge fan of this. I've been saying since day 1 that this is what will take Steem to the next level. It's the only thing IMO. Blogging is cool, but it's tired. Reddit is cool, but it's niche. You need something that appeals to the masses and YouTube is just that.

Further, Steemit has a disadvantage to Reddit in that, with Reddit people don't have to take the time to write a thoughtful "Steem". They can just curate links to various pieces of content. Also, with Reddit you can follow topics and not just people. (I've mentioned this before, following people is stupid. It's the reason why Twitter sucks).

So yea. SteemTube up up and away!

I make $12 per month on YouTube. The only people who really make bank are less than .00001% of YouTube creators. The rest of us make peanuts.

Yes, exactly. And they make the majority of the money b/c they get the majority of the views on their content. My point is not to discourage this b/c I feel it's THE right move/answer.

I'm simply stating that the majority of YouTube's premiere content and viewership isn't likely to jump ship quick. It takes more people like you, making $12 over time, where some become very popular before it takes hold.

But, I think it's inevitable and needs to be done.

Exactly my sentiment. We don't really need big time famous people using Steemit to propel ourselves. They will likely see this weird website as just another income stream with no regards to the community or the culture.

Why not reward those who have been here since day 1 and has been making content day and night? Those that believes in Steemit before it was mainstream, before it "makes big money".

What I mean is that, IF, they do come, let them come. But we ourselves have already all the talents we need to make steemit a legit place. Afterall, steemit is about everyone. Everyone can make money, not just big time famous stars.

You are spot on my man. For those of us here we knew this was going to be a future platform with value that will be an opportunity to get in on the ground level and become those guys and gals bringing in a livable income or a nice little bonus. Support early adopters whenever possible because we made this platform and it shall be to our benefit.

Lets support each other and build up ourselves!

Great posts and blog you have by the way, followed and cant wait for your future posts!

Lets hope they ALL JUMP SHIP!

Lets kill this dinosaur media and bring on the alternative media. I listen to all alternative media on youtube. USA Watchdog, SGT Report, Lisa Haven etc. and lean so much more from these folks. Thanks for all of those who chose to provide us with alternative media. Thumbs UP!!

never gotten a view above 10 on You lessTube!!!

I make way more on affiliate commissions from YouTube than I do from the Adsense. Adsense is a minimal income stream for me on there but I feel it is important.

of course -- I always knew this is so, and therefore am still laughing at attempts to "calculate" the income of some Casey Neistat merely be figuring out the value of their AdSense clicks. In light of those being in the $100,000s just imagine what these people really are making (from those little Amazon or GoPro or Manfrotto affiliate links they also use)...

Not that this is all tht important, maybe rather off-topic here.

Just saying though...

Youtube is going to miss you @stellabelle Bleep_visual_censor.gif
and many other steemers. Youtube is history.

Soo True !!

Even PewDiePie, the biggest YouTuber of all with close to 55 million subscribers only got $32 and $38 in ad revenue on his last two videos according to a video he uploaded today, titled SHE WANTS MY YOUTUBE MONEY! Pure gaming channels (which PewDiePie is not) seem to be still going strong, some even seeing more ad revenue than before the adpocalypse. So it really depends on the content people create and if they create the wrong content, with *gasp* edgy humor, the most dangerous of weapons ever created by man apparently, even millions of subscribers means you don't get anything and have to make money through donations or promo deals.

But I completely agree with your other points :)

Absolutely! And that's a good point to bring up. This reminds me of my first startup, macmod.com, a community site for people that modified their macintosh computers. It was very popular. We had multiple links on apple.com, even on their Mac Mini product pages.

Alas, nerds don't click ads, they don't buy products with markup, and they're an absolutely horrible target market with respect to general marketing and revenue channels.

So, I certainly agree with you there. If I'm an advertiser, I'm unlikely to want my ads showing next to PewDiePie, unless maybe I'm selling a Squatty Potty.

Further, Steemit has a disadvantage to Reddit in that, with Reddit people don't have to take the time to write a thoughtful "Steem". They can just curate links to various pieces of content. Also, with Reddit you can follow topics and not just people. (I've mentioned this before, following people is stupid. It's the reason why Twitter sucks).

I can second that claim, we should strive to be something different and real rather than get washed away in a few years :) a vibrant co-working community would be the best bet :)

Read my post. I am going to follow you because a I think those of us with the tingle are going to want to work together to make ourselves successful on STEEMIT. We will persist!

I like what you are saying @jacobt except for "with Reddit people don't have to take the time to write a thoughtful "Steem". If you see my recent posts, you will see that they were pretty simple, and they still received a fair amount. And I think we should be able to follow people as well as topics, that way you have the best of both.

fulll steem ahead!

Maybe we move more in that direction. But, at least initially and possibly as part of the culture, the trend is headed the other direction. I feel this limits a lot of content from being shared. Steemit needs to realize that the majority of the content creation is going to happen outside these walls. Being able to bring that in, without the need to write a long "steem" is important IMO.

I think you have a point

I think whats most important is to take the control and power away from Google, Facebook, YouTube, and all these other monopolies and put the power of the internet back in the hands of the people. All the meanwhile undermining the world banking systems by giving cryptocurrencies buying power. Time to put the people back in charge.


Totally agree with you Sir.

Yep I totally agree! I'm getting sick of the new updates on youtube android which is invasive.

with their recent attempts at censorship good riddance.

I can't wait for youtube to die. I am going to start getting active on steemit.

Lol, You what?

hihihihi :D

Yes! Bye bye CENSORED YouTube! The truth will still get out there for the people!

RIGHT! youtube KILLER!!!

This would be off the hook if so

it's about time humanity frees itself from that Google-run monster -- and a video-capable Steemit will help doing just that.

I am waiting for some time for a blockchain-based and censorship-resistant search engine to come up somewhere in this ecosystem here, so we will also be able to free ourselves from that evil miscreant.

Called it! Look at my previous posts. So happy for us STEEMIANS!!!

Yes. I have stopped uploading vids there. Cant wait for this.

I have been waiting for this news for a while.

Hope so!

Where will the videos be stored?

lol - They will not, demonetize us... they will not demonetize us... they will not...

Probably a storage blockchain like Storj or Sia, or even possibly Maidsafe.

3.81$ with 2 votes wtf
My post yesterday had 200+likes and only made .83cents

Steemit is a plutocracy. Rule by the wealthy. Look it up. Those with steem power determine what is 'worthy' content. This is the only aspect of steemit that I don't think is fair.

Yes 48hrs into steem i started to noticed

check steemd also some bots vote at 1% https://steemd.com/@deez

A big fish must have liked your content. Their opinions are worth more.

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

Yep, that's the central question, the only viable option now is probably IPFS (please correct me if I'm wrong), Sia is not ready (no public URLs for files you add to your wallet), Storj is centralized and just switching to ETH (e.g. not really stable), MAID is also still alpha, no storage layer yet afik, and also Ethereum Swarm is not ready yet...

I for one don't care how it looks, as long as it works!


Thats what she said ? lol

So Steemit.com will replace facebook, twitter, reddit; Steemqa will replace Youtube; Steepshot will replace Instagram. Looks like all of social media will be replaced soon!!

Through their censorship and political activities, they are sowing the seeds of their own demise. I won't shed a tear.

ya?....it wil replace....in 67 years. :)
Well, maybe sooner..... but dont expect this to happen in a decade

Youtube is what, 12 years old and Facebook is 14 years old. Decade is a plenty of time given that this is a community effort instead of corporate one. And day by day the issues of censhorship is growing. Perfect storm is brewing.

I expect it'll happen much sooner than that if it happens at all.

As long as the steemit stays as it is, with a clean, simple and no advertising interface okay! 😉

yes please.
no distractions from watching the material

Yup I have to agree there, I'm used to seeing normal pages and it's a bit shameful that most sites have to put up with shitty adds to support their revenue.

it has the opposite result of what they intended.

Not really just stimulating the making of adblockers :D to help us clean the net of trashy commercials, why can't we ditch the marketing methods so deeply rooted in TV, stay a sleep and buy shit :| we will feed you good ideas every 20 minutes :) Strange world it is, how about the SteemQ do you like the idea, will you vlog :D

Just tired of other entities having the power to censor whatever they think is dangerous, fake, or puts them in the spotlight

I hate that too. Facebook is getting very bad about that. I tried to post something related to bitcoin and the facebook algorithm denied my link as unsafe. I know for a fact the content was safe.

WOW! amazing!
i was sure u will be the guy who makes it :)

Awesome work @furion, thanks for building this! Youtube's days are numbered :)

Please, make it webm!

I will, but not in the first version. VP9 encoding and webm container format are pretty cool, however there is no general cross-platform native support yet, so for now it makes sense to keep things simple, and stick to H264.

If steemit.chat can handle it, I'm sure it wont take too long in this project :p

I would like to stick to a single format, to keep storage costs low. Thus, it makes sense to use formats that are natively supported by all devices OOTB. We are close though, very close.

this is exciting news.

Good job :)


For most video creators they're used to making videos with H.264. It's best to match what YouTubers are good at doing right now than improving and offering way more solutions in the future!

Well well well look at that.

I'm buying steem right now! This is also incredible because I can then upload guitar vids straight to steemit instead of going through youtube. Wicked as! :D

Thks for the info @furion. great to see how the project is moving. Please let us know if u need any support for this project. Upvoted!

HI, Looks promising, If you need a hand with the design I can help you, I'm a graphic designer :)
Or see you in a dota2 game haha

Keep It Simple Sally

he there :D, I'm a 3D person :D how is the graphic design going, are you up for collaborations and maybe projects over freelancer if we work together, as for the dota I'm pissed they made the league of dotas :| so I'm playing Path of Exile :D literally and figuratively :D which remind me I need to stop that and steem on again haha

Nice one furion! This will be yet another game changer!

Very cool. Resteemed.

Steem is taking over:
Instagram > @steepshot
Twitter > @zappl
Youtube > @steemq
ebay > ?
linkedin > ?

humm you already have me there :D well the idea is very easy in deed SteemIN :) for the investor an business peoples :D I copyright that :D and you can be the witness :)

There was a market for steem btw, you can check http://www.steemtools.com I wasn't impressed mostly overvalued in my mind

Many have been asking for this. You do not mention any time except near future. Are we talking about 1-6 months?

haa I'm a big fan of the "Soon,. ish" Release date :D let the developers develop they do what they can the way they can it's past the long haul since he did release some teaser :D so it will be 2-4 months until we get to "test" it out :) maybe there is even an alpha version already :D

Now we just need to get some of the big Youtubers to make the transition.... anyone have Casey Neistat's #?

Why not encourage homegrown talent? We have a few native vloggers here on steemit that I feel is more than capable of to take the reins.

I agree with that. Big Youtubers won't have time, and their demand for $$$ is much higher. Supporting homegrown and helping them up is always better.

I don't know if I'd consider myself big on YouTube but I'd be down to post some original content here! :)

Awesome! Sorry bout the little outtakes on Youtube celebs, it's just what we do around here lol..

And very well made videos.. great to have you onboard. I think the community would most appreciate linkbacks, vid description shoutouts, or even in video. For one, you can build and engage with your community around here (how awesome is it to be able to reward your most engaged subscriber?) and openly use the STEEM logo in your videos if you wish to (I've been openly using the STEEM logo for my music event posters just as a way to contribute back in other ways).

I've also sent emails to gabe newell about accepting Steem (they've been accepting bitcoin) and overhaul their games review section to allow for steem votes in the future. But I was just trying my luck more than anything. Steem and steam together is just too steemy. He never replied.

YouTube unfortunately doesn't play well with linking outside sites. If you do, you can kill traffic on your channel instantly since your video would be drawing traffic off YouTube. They seem to be okay with things like Patreon and crowdfunding sites (funding to support creators and further video development) but not very much else.

Just drawing some small chunk of traffic away from YouTube isn't a really great answer anyway because you'll end up having the viewers go back immediately. It's way more important to offer better and unique content on Steemit not found anywhere else.

their demand for $$$ is much higher.

not necessarily considering ad revenue has been decimated lately.

Maybe so.. but usually big ass youtubers come with some attitude and entitlement to deal with :)

That's true. Has been interesting watching their entitlement of that youtube money going down in flames. :p

haha any examples? i haven't been catching up..

Not on the PC right now, but its bad... videos being demonetized, advertisers pulling their ads from youtube and earnings literally being dumped. Check out Philip DeFranco's latest video.

Was the 2nd latest:


This certainly will be a game changer against #Youtube and other #video sites.

I can't wait to see this coming up, wow! YouTube is going down the tube!!! All for one and one for all! Namaste :)

Nice! I'm only a few days new to Steemit, but this sounds like great news! Seems I joined at the right time.

GREAT idea...call it SteemYou.

That, or YouSteem (play on YouTube).

I do kind of prefer your suggestion, though. SteemYou makes it sound more like a "you do you and display it for the world" goal. Not to mention, the flip of "you" in the title kind of suggests to me that it's YouTube's opposite -- a "rival tube" as it were ;)

SteemIt might well replace all of Social Media.

...and the OGs, you and I and all the current Steemit community, become mega rich!!!

:D yeahhhh

This is a bit harsh :D

Woop Wopp :D But it's short also even tho it mad me hate it in 10 seconds it still can be revisited :D Now for the Original :)

And I Feeeeeel, Nice :D

I hope so sincerely this will be successful. One of my biggest wishes for the community. Youtube needs to die ... let the blockchain freedom om speech win !!!!

Congratulations @furion!
Your post was mentioned in my hit parade in the following categories:

  • Upvotes - Ranked 1 with 597 upvotes
  • Comments - Ranked 2 with 103 comments
  • Pending payout - Ranked 1 with $ 510,92

I saw it when it was at 400$ so picture my amazement :D when they have half a kickstarter already :D

I'm really looking forward to seeing this get released! Thanks for making this :D I think it will be very good for the growth of Steem to have an application like this.

I've been waiting for this! Crazy! Game changer! Steem's price is going to skyrocket! Viva Steemit.


Meep is right my friend :) meep on.


Thank you.

thank you for sharing @furion , it's perfect timing ! awsome

How does it work? Are you storing the data on IPFS and only including root hashes in the Steem blockchain?

Bye bye YouTube.

With all its adds, YouTube is not profitable. I don't know if Steemit can maintain servers to deliver video in a big scale. Maybe some decentralized protocol like BitTorrent, with people being paid for storing and streaming video, is the way to go.

I thought that you gave up on building this app. This is awesome news! Thanks for updating.

STEEMIT going for ALL_IN_ONE . This will crush existing comptetitors !! what will be next ,purchasing stuff like amazon on steem?¿?¿ Or even a steembay (ebay in steem lol) . No , but lets get serius everday passes im enjoying more Steem than other networks . Waiting like a kid before christmas for SteemQ.

Price of steem will rocket after launch!!!!!
Very interesting feature... Infact it will be Game Changer!!!

Will it also be allowed to upload movies or videos which are not allowed or are censored by youtube?
And what will be the main differences between this and other video-channels?

With the enormous reward you have earned here, do you think you could divert a little of it to here?
Steemit Legacy fund
I am not critical of your payout by the way - actually delighted for you!

Awesome job @furion, as always!


Can people get early access?

youtube KILLER!!!!!

Yes this is very much needed, thanks for the info, and hopefully I won't have to do this anymore:

Youtube links, please anyone let me know if you like it! This up coming app will save me time and I'll use only steem for my video's! And thanks furion, I'll follow and of course up vote your content!

Bye to youtube dictature

This is exciting!! Look out world, Steemit is coming for you!

very cool, very interesting - be sure to inform of progress :)

If youtubers think their getting crushed with dropping ad revenue now, just wait until this bully gets knocked down. It'll be like a mass exodus from youtube to Steem. We have to cut out the middle man that just wants to take profits off our hard work. Get'em

YouTube has had a number of issues that go beyond even ad revenue problems. Censorship and videos being outright blocked from viewers has been my number 1 concern. If I make a video I want my subscribers to know it exists and let them choose to watch it or not. Lately my viewers have been telling me they don't even get simple notifications telling them of new videos being released!

Nice, looking forward to it.

Wow, this will be awesome....bye bye YouTube.
