YouTube’s biggest independent creator Felix Kjellberg, better known as PewDiePie, is welcoming the news that DLive’s blockchain-based streaming platform is joining the Tron and BitTorrent (BTT) family.
In a new video, Kjellberg tells his 102 million subscribers that BitTorrent is the “biggest, decentralized, peer to peer file-sharing network in the world, powered by Tron (TRX).”
PewDiePie goes on to say that BitTorrent has over 100 million users of its own and says he’s a believer in DLive because of its mission to reward both creators and viewers on the platform.
“One of the reasons I joined DLive is because their mission is to not take any of the streamers’ earnings, and that’s how they support streamers in a huge way…
and it’s been very nice to watch it grow and DLive actually rewards you guys for engaging with creators, which other sites don’t.”
DLive will use the Tron network to manage its blockchain-based rewards system.
In late December 2019, Tron (TRX) founder Justin Sun confirmed that DLive, which reportedly has more than five million monthly active users, is officially migrating to the Tron blockchain network.
