DTube (Decentralized Tube) is a decentralized video platform launched in July 2016 that incentives users to create video content by giving them the ability to earn STEEMcryptocurrency.Users are rewarded by posting, curating, and up-voting content on the platform, and all users are monetarily rewarded for their contributions )not only content creators). The DTube video platform is ad free, does not contain hidden algorithms that control visibility or monetization, and is resistant to censorship. DTube is built on the IPFS peer-to-peer network and the STEEM blockchain.
Instead of displaying view counts on videos uploaded by users, each video shows the amount of money the video has earned. Another unique feature of Dtube compared to other online video platforms is that once a user uploads a video to their channel it can not be edited or deleted. Dtube uses the same payout system as Steemit blockchains, which means payouts occur on a 7 day systems and older content cannot be monetized past the seven day mark.
