Hello Dtubers, today we would like to talk about one of the less known features of Dtube, which is account creation. Most of the old Steem users had the privilege to keep their name on Dtube and most of the names got migrated to Mainnet as a perk being an old-time supporter of DTube.
Account creation by burning Dtube Coin
Before directly jumping to the topic we would like to talk a little about asset ownership. In Dtube we want users to have full control over their content, accounts, and tokens. In the last couple of years, it's clear to see the impact of Blockchain on asset ownership. True asset ownership is an important concept in a thriving economy, giving people the chance to benefit from holding or trading assets and we know that since the beginning of the internet there is a race to have cool names. They are just a few characters but it represents your internet identity or your brand.
We wanted to create a system that will benefit the entire economy inspiring from these fundamentals and provide value to the Dtube coin and add more utility to it.
Any Dtube account can create more accounts by burning some Dtube coins. The burned coins will be permanently out of supply and you will have full ownership of the name and account.
Pricing of accounts
The current system of account pricing is pretty simple shorter names require more Dtube coin to be burned to obtain that username.
