I am supposed to be in bed already because I have a long day tomorrow but this was brought to my attention. I was on YouTube searching things like I normally do and I came across a video from a guy who was exposing scams in India.
Yes, the scam was interesting but I was more intrigued with the fact that he mentioned uploading the uncensored version of this video on D.Tube. What the hell is D.Tube? I must find out!
D.Tube and Steemit
I began browsing around D.Tube and realize it’s a beta version of YouTube but with better value such as no censorship, the likes are not the focus, and it pays in cryptocurrency. Unlike D. Live (which I gave up on), these are transferrable. I know very little about Crypto but I guess this is the best time to learn, right?
As you can see in the dashboard, the videos are categorized and under each video, it provides the currency amount that each video have generated. Unfortunately, that is not in dollars but in Steemit coins, which you can transfer to bitcoins and such (more to come), and then, in turn, transfer it into dollar amounts. Joker Production on YouTube can explain it better than I do.
Now That We Got That Out The Way
I started to fix up my profile and realize that I need to go through another account to fix up D.Tube’s profile account, so there are things that are required to complete before you can continue with other things. Each management and editing require a certain account and Steem Key. When you sign up, it’s for free but you have to wait a few days to get approved. If you have a Steemit account or a Steemit wallet account like I do, you can log in right away and start managing your account and upload.
The one thing that is different with the upload on D.Tube versus YouTube is that you cannot delete your upload. It is on D.Tube for good so you’ll have to be okay with it going up! Now once you have uploaded, it also uploads as a blog on your Steemit account, so if you want to be descriptive in your video, add all that you need because you are also creating your blog while you’re sharing your video. You get paid as a creator and you get paid as an author. Sounds pretty good to me!
I tried uploading this as my first blog post
I caught wind of D.Tube while searching up something on YouTube, so here I am, constantly testing the water. I like the idea of having a channel plus being about to curate revenues as an Author. This platform reminds me of something that was conceived by YouTube and Medium. Very interesting if you ask me.
As a writer, I can really appreciate it and do want to share this great opportunity for other content creators who frequents my YouTube channel and feel ripped off from the regulations that the platform enforces but I want to dabble with it first. I shared the heck out of DLive and I felt like it was a rip off because there you cannot really transfer Lino currency. This might be a perfect opportunity for me to learn about crypto because my friend Ryan has been trying to get me into it for a while.
I will utilize this blog space just for my experience with D.Tube and we can go from there.
And then I got this message:
So I am not sure if I need to earn some sort of currency through Steemit and D.Tube first before I can begin blogging to gain author’s points or I have to try again because the server might be busy. Either way, I’ll keep using this as my alternative to YouTube and keep everyone updated.
Someone that I trust who has over 60K subscribers on YouTube has shown me that his revenues on D.Tube were 100% better than YouTube. The amount that he made so far on D.Tube on one video is the amount he makes on YouTube in one year. That’s crazy awesome and I want to learn more. It’s an opportunity and as I am searching D.Tube, my niche on freelancing and personality type talks is not even there so this can be a great opportunity for my niche to be the first before D.Tube becomes saturated with more people interested in the same things that I am interested in haha.
If you’re using D.Tube, what is your take on it? Have you heard about it? Let me know in the comments below and let’s keep this conversation moving.
