TRON: If YouTube Used Blockchain, It Wouldn't Fail
The TRON Foundation team is confident that the world’s largest video hosting site YouTube could have avoided a breakdown if it used the TRON blockchain solution. This message was reported on the project’s Twitter.
On Tuesday, October 16, YouTube received numerous complaints from users who could not access YouTube, YouTube TV and YouTube Music for a period of one hour. Later, the developers resumed the work of the video hosting, promising to fix the bugs and keep the community up to date on their Twitter.
Thanks for your reports about YouTube, YouTube TV and YouTube Music access issues. We're working on resolving this and will let you know once fixed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated.— Team YouTube (@TeamYouTube) October 17, 2018
The TRON Foundation team responded to this news on the social network by claiming:
“Our TRONICS believe that with the decentralized platform on TRON, that kind of issue won’t happen”.
After that, the community started a heated debate on YouTube problems and their possible solutions by deploying TRON technologies. A user nicknamed N Gordon suggested launching a brand new service “TronTube,” which would presumably combine the advantages of both startups. Zaphod Beeb replied to this statement and advised to leave just TRON, which, in his opinion, would outperform YouTube and Facebook.
You need to launch TronTube— N Gordon (@NofVegas) October 17, 2018
Additionally, user Jagath Silva commented on YouTube malfunction: “When those won’t happen? 2020? 2025? 2030?”. Further, Subsidieland highlighted that one hour of service outage was not “that bad” since there are 8.760 hours in a year.
1 hour per year isn't that bad since a year has 8760 hours...0.0001%— subsidieland (@subsidieland) October 17, 2018
when those wont happen? 2020? 2025? 2030?— Jagath Silva (@JagathSilvaDC) October 17, 2018
A crypto enthusiast under the nickname ARTY claimed that it’s time for YouTube to become decentralized — at least partly, because the hosting service provider must also monitor and remove illegal content.
A prime weakness centralized apps have today, YouTube is down for users world wide.. its time to decentralize. Now, not every aspect can be Decentralized.. so let’s say semi-Decentralized, illegal content should still be monitored & removed. @justinsuntron @binance @cz_binance— ARTY (@humble_la) October 17, 2018
User DIGI_X appreciated TRON's self-confidence, however he explained that any technology may fail at some point. He added: “If YouTube has trouble so will you. Don’t make promise you can’t keep!”.

Previously, TRON CEO Justin Sun claimed that the network would become 200 times faster than Ethereum.
