Famous Youtuber PewDiePie has decided to live-stream his content on DLive, which recently joined the TRON ecosystem. Justin Sun took to Twitter to make the announcement today.
PewDiePie, a leading YouTuber, has begun streaming on DLive – a blockchain-powered streaming site that will soon be migrating to the TRON network. The announcement is a significant boon to TRON, which announced its partnership with DLive in late December.
Justin Sun took to Twitter today to announce that PewDiePie would be using DLive. Sharing a funny video, PewDiePie himself explains why he joined, claiming that the platform takes less from creators and overall allows for more a more interactive experience between fans and streamers. He also praises its chat function and its wide collection of stickers, which is obviously extremely important.
However, PewDiePie has been streaming on DLive for some time now. In fact, his first stream on the platform was actually on April 11th, before any talk of TRON. At the time, it was reported as unprecedented given that PewDiePie is among the top 5 YouTubers based on number of subscribers. DLive currently has some 5 million monthly active users and around 80,000 active broadcasters. PewDiePie is, of course, the largest by far.
In PewDiePie’s latest video, he again appeals to his fans to come join him at DLive. He also mentions BitTorrent and TRON directly, saying that TRON has “over 100M users.” It’s unclear how true this is, but the mention itself is a surprise given the controversy TRON has made for itself in the cryptocurrency industry. Frankly, no one expected that PewDiePie would mention TRON directly during a stream.
Recently, TRON passed EOS for having the second-most amount of dApps out of all blockchains in the entire cryptocurrency industry, as BeInCrypto has previously reported. However, it still lags behind competitors when it comes to on-chain value transacted. It’s unclear how DLive will be incorporated on TRON, but the details of the migration are still forthcoming.
