PewDiePie Boosts The Popularity Of The DLive Streaming Service
Since PewDiePie joined the DLive blockchain-based live streaming platform, its clientele has increased by a remarkable 67%. PewDiePie is one of the most famous YouTubers in the world.
According to Nikkei Asian Review, DLive bow has 70,000 streamers and averages 5 million users per month. Before PewDiePie joined, the platform had 35,000 streamers and a total of 3 million visitors every month.
In April, PewDiePie signed an agreement with DLive. The popular YouTuber has 95 million followers on the video-sharing website, and his latest video received 3 million views in less than 24 hours.
DLive is a decentralized platform built on top of the Lino blockchain network. The platform rewards both content creators and viewers using Lino pints, the native token of the Lino network. DLive doesn’t take commissions from content creators. The only charges a creator incurs is during the exchange of tokens into fiat currency.
Wilson Wei, a co-founder of the Lino Network, told Nikkei Asian Review that the biggest challenges in the online streaming industry are non-transparency and the hefty fees imposed on content creators by distribution platforms. He added that blockchain technology would provide a lasting solution to both problems.
Ultimately, DLive intends to surpass the current industry leader, Twitch. The Amazon-owned live streaming service currently has 15 million daily viewers and 2.2 million broadcasters.
In February last year, Lino fundraised $20 million through a token sale conducted by ZhenFund. Back then, Wei stated that he expected DLive content creators to generate higher incomes than their peers on Twitch and YouTube.
