3 QUESTIONS TO GREGOIRE D’AVOUT D’AUERSTAEDT, CEO CO-FOUNDER D-TUBE
They are our clients, our friends, good contacts or just people we met in the crypto-community. They have new vision, they are running great projects, they are developing new services or they just want to share their story. Once a week (maybe more or maybe less depending of your feedback!), Havas Blockchain will interview key people of the blockchain ecosystem.
We are today with Grégoire d’Avout d’Auerstaedt (CEO & co-founder D-Tube)
1. First of all, can you present D Tube ?
D Tube is a new generation of video sharing platform that empowers users and respect their privacy.
> We respect user privacy by not collecting any personal data
> This is users who rank and moderate content through a voting system
> We redistribute 90% of platform revenues to users with a reward mechanism based on blockchain technology
> We tackle censorship with a fully decentralized peer to peer infrastructure
We launched DTube almost a year ago and we experienced a booming audience as social media users are increasingly sensitive at privacy issues and tired of intrusive advertisement.
We believe our approach is a game changer in this industry thanks to the fast development of the decentralized movement.
2. On which blockchain did you develop D Tube and why ?
We started with the STEEM social blockchain which is by far the most advanced blockchain in use for the new generation of social medias. They use the brilliant DPoS consensus algorithm that allows to reward large audiences with millions of micro transactions per minute. This kind of blockchain has a bright future because instead of the Proof-of-Work algorithm (in use for Bitcoin) which eats so much energy, DPoS is a “green blockchain” that doesn’t require much resources to run.
Steem also has a dynamic community of D-Apps developers which is very empowering and bolsters knowledge sharing.
3. What are your coming projects with D Tube ?
After running the platform for a year and testing many aspects of the review and reward mechanisms, we are working on a brand new version of our platform to make a much simpler interface, that will be way more intuitive and with a lot of new features!
We will revamp as well our built-in messaging system based as well on a fully decentralized infrastructure, in collaboration with GUN DB, a californian startup and our very own livestream service for gamers.
We will also launch early next year mobile apps for iOS and Android.
