Justin Sun’s BitTorrent Onboards Largest Decentralized Live Streaming Platform DLive

  • On December 30, BitTorrent made the announcement that the blockchain-based platform DLive is going to join its ecosystem.

This partnership will give BitTorrent’s monthly active users, who are more than 100 million, the opportunity to share peer-to-peer content and to live stream. This is what the CEO of BitTorrent, Justin Sun, had to say about decentralized content platforms:

“It’s unfortunate to see content platforms such as YouTube taking down crypto-related content, this is the issue with centralized agencies. Decentralized content platforms such as TRON’s newest partner DLive are the platforms of the future.”

DLive Hosts PewDiePie and Other Famous YouTubers

Launched almost 2 years back, DLive already has 5 million users that are active every month, plus an interesting live streaming lineup of YouTube celebrities that use it for co-streaming. These celebrities include PewDiePie, James Charles, Ninja, and Jack Black. Sun said DLive is a leader in the blockchain-based live streaming world.

DLive’s Account Systems Will Merge with BitTorrent’s

In order to integrate communities further, the DLive account systems will merge with BitTorrent’s. BLive, which is a BitTorrent live streaming platform launched at the beginning of 2019, is going to migrate and merge with DLive, while DLive will introduce ads for their services and products into the BitTorrent networks.

DLive Is Going to Migrate to the TRON Blockchain

The collaboration will have DLive migrating to the TRON blockchain. TRON was acquired in July 2018 by BitTorrent to create the largest file-sharing decentralized protocol. Currently working on the Lino blockchain, DLive will continue to support Lino until it has completely transitioned to TRON.

However, the LINO cryptocurrency DLive is using to pay content makers is no longer going to be the main unit of value. DLive will offer rewards and benefits to its existing users that make the transition into the BitTorrent ecosystem by using BitTorrent’s BTT cryptocurrency. The BitTorrent Filesharing System (BTFS) will be used by DLive as well.

Seagate Shares Rise After Reports Emerge of Ripple Ownership And Its Blockchain Project Moving To Crucial Stage

IBM And Seagate Partner Up to Confront Fake Hard Drives with Blockchain Tech

On Monday, Seagate shares soared after a report emerged indicating the technology company owns a sizeable part of crypto-based firm Ripple.

According to the report Seagate owns approximately 4% of Ripple. According to CNBC neither Ripple or Seagate could confirm the revelations. Following the revelations, Seagate’s shares rose by a margin of 16% following the opening of the market.

Ripple is the third largest cryptocurrency in the world and has a market cap of more than $80 billion as per data from CoinMarketCap. The blockchain startup owns 61% of the 100 billion XRP coins that are in circulation and are commonly referred to as Ripple.

Speculations have been rife over the years of the percentage of Ripple owned by Seagate. Seagate is listed as one of the major owners of Ripple in its website.

Seagate was among the major investors in Ripple’s Series A funding round that occured in 2015. Seagate was also a major investor during the Series B investment in september 2016. However, details about Seagate’s Ripple investment remained scanty as no official report has ever been released by any of the company.

Seagate Blockchain Supply Chain Project Now in Pilot Stage

Meanwhile, in other related news Seagate’s partnership with IBM’s blockchain platform is now in the pilot stage. Seagate intends to use IBM’s blockchain supply chain technology to follow hard drives throughout its supply chain.

Seagate partnered with IBM to use the IBM’s blockchain platform in 2018 and also working together as IBM is a major hard drive customer.

Speaking to Forbes, Manuel Offenberg, Seagate’s research group managing technologist of data security explained that the two companies started a proof-of-concept [PoC] with IBM, and the proof-of-concept was about product provenance.

During the proof-of-concept stage, Seagate indicated that the blockchain technology was effective and will be in sync with its line of products. Offenberg explained:

“We just went through an executive review on the next step, and the next step is starting a pilot with IBM.”

Offenberg stated that Seagate looks forward to prove the project’ scalability through the pilot. The official added that although the pilot has not yet started, the company has already received a green light to carry on with the project.

According to Offenberg the partnership between Seagate and IBM aims at enhancing the customer confidence that the products they receive from Seagate are genuine and original. He explained further:

“In this case, IBM is both the customer of these drives, as well as the technology provider for the underlying Hyperledger Fabric platform.”

The blockchain supply chain technology will also track the products in case of product return. Offenberg explained that the solution will also ensure that no counterfeits are returned to the company.

Seagate will work closely with IBM as its client during the piloting phase. However, Seagate plans to involve other clients in the reverse supply chain. Offenberg indicated that the company will involve larger firms since they offer most of the business to Seagate.

Where do you see Seagate going next after venturing in blockchain-based solutions and ventures? Share your views with us in the comments section.
