Youtube-Blogger PewDiePie To Support Blockchain Platform DLive
A Swedish Youtube-blogger Felix Shellberg, using the nickname PewDiePie and having one of the largest channels in the world by the number of subscribers, said that now, he will go live every week via the blockchain service DLive.
The blogger added that he is also going to invest up to $50,000 in the company to support it in its further development.
According to some experts, in 2018, Shellberg's revenues from the Youtube channel amounted to $15.5 million. PewDiePie has more than 93.5 million subscribers, while some of his videos require less than a day to get up to several million views.
The blogger noted that the platform developers treat him and other users as the project partners. The service creators claim that the main advantage of their product is the absence of fees for broadcasting. Instead, both viewers and bloggers receive the internal tokens of the distributed ledger to their accounts as a reward.
The platform is based on the Lino blockchain. In the winter of 2018, the developers managed to raise $20 million during a private investment round led by ZhenFund. The project creators point out that their principal goal was to develop a technology that would increase the earnings of video bloggers in several times.
