Why does Dlive exist?

Live streaming is huge, and growing

Live streaming has boomed in recent years. Backed largely by the emergence of eSports, but also with an incredible push from casual gamers and interesting personalities that pull in millions of views.

The platforms rip their streamers off

However, most of the platforms that host live-streamers take massive cuts. The biggest profiteers in the live streaming game are the platforms.

Ads ruin the entertainment

Pretty much all streaming sites spam you with ads. YouTube and Twitch are both bad for this, and it ruins the entertainment for everyone. Sure, it’s a great revenue stream, but this takes away from the reason why you’re there.

Twitch is full of ads, and it sucks.

Barriers to entry

New entrants into the live streaming space struggle to get noticed because the top spots are monopolized by large streamers. These new entrants also adhere to difficult-to-attain requirements if they want to earn.

Withdrawal limits suck

Many sites also have withdrawal limits, YouTube requires you to meet the AdSense limit, Twitch also requires you to reach a certain amount. This means streamers are locked into working or simply leaving their cash with the platform.

You need at least $100 earnings to withdraw on Twitch.

How is DLive different from other streaming services?

No fees

That’s right. There are no fees. It seems crazy, but there is no centralised company trying to profit. All the money that users generate for broadcasters, goes straight to the broadcaster.

DLive takes no fees!

No ads

This makes the entertainment far better, and more “pure”. Revenue is generated through upvotes, and this goes solely to the broadcaster. It’s all powered by blockchain, no one needs to pay.

Final thoughts

Leave Twitch, leave YouTube, join DLive; DLive is powered by blockchain, takes no cuts, charges no fees, and is completely ad-free.
