PewDiePie signs a deal to only stream on YouTube which means he will be leaving the Blockchain streaming platform that he made a contract with in 2019. During the ongoing war with crypto, the video streaming platform signed a new deal with one of the most popular YouTubers out there. Let’s get into the crypto news and find out more.
PewDiePie is an independent content maker on YouTube and he signed a new deal with Youtube, leaving the blockchain platform DLive. YouTube announced the news just a few days ago with the YouTuber claiming that the agreement was a ‘’natural fit.’’ PewDiePie or Felix Kjellberg initially signed a partnership with the blockchain-based content sharing platform Dlive and said that he decided to stream there because he was treated as a ‘’real partner’’ since DLive has zero reward cuts.
PewDiePie’s DLive channel gained more than 820,000 followers which is less than 1% of his entire YouTube channel exposure. His channel on YouTube surpassed more than 25 billion views and 104 million subscribers. PewDiePie commented that his decision was driven by his live streaming focus for this year:
“YouTube has been my home for over a decade now and live streaming on the platform feels like a natural fit as I continue to look for new ways to create content and interact with fans worldwide […] Live streaming is something I’m focusing a lot on in 2020 and beyond, so to be able to partner with YouTube and be at the forefront of new product features is special and exciting for the future.”
DLive was initially built on the Lino blockchain and agreed to migrate to the Tron blockchain in late 2019. On Dec.30 the major peer-to-peer file sharing platform BitTorrent announced that DLive will be joining the ecosystem. BitTorrent CEO Justin Sun who also founded Tron, outlined followed the crypto content ban that YouTube imposed and commented that the decentralized platforms are the future. Youtube bans again and has discontinued the channel of David Schwartz, the CTO of Ripple for impersonation. The suspension comes a week after Ripple filed an official lawsuit against the Google-owned platform. YouTube has done this in the past as well and is known for suspending and deleting accounts that were related to the crypto industry.
