Tron founder and CEO Justin Sun’s decentralized peer-to-peer filesharing network BitTorrent has bought DLive, the blockchain-based livestreaming home of world No. 2 YouTuber PewDiePie.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission approved a second blockchain company’s request to sell its tokens to the public on July 11, a day after breaking ground by greenlighting its first public cryptocurrency sale.
YouTube superstar and occasional anti-Semite PewDiePie stirred up another blockchain-based controversy by endorsing a cryptocurrency-powered social media app that describes itself in terms usually reserved for failed philosophy PhD’s or Jim Jones wannabes.
DLive saw its audience grow by 67% and the number of content creators using the DApp to reach an audience double in April, the same month it announced the controversial Swedish YouTube star chose it for his livestream broadcasts.
