DTC Launch Rescheduled

Mainnet Rescheduled

This announcement is going to be a little downer, but we decided to postpone DTC's Mainnet launch to make more tests and improvements, but don't worry, it won't be such a long shift in the date. New Launch Date will be on 1st of July which is 7 more weeks compared to original date.

We feel a bit short on time to achieve our goals for the launch. DTubers, please accept our sincere apologies for missing a deadline. We know we announced and promised for 10th of May but we would like to provide the best experience to our users on launch date and we would like to be fully transparent about what we will be working on and improving during this delay.

What we will work on during the extra 7 weeks ?

  • More blockchain and economics testing with another testnet fork
  • We will be working on getting more press coverage for the launch and filling the fundraising
  • Improving UI (new homepage)
  • A blockchain explorer with statistics
  • Bringing back phone verification on the signup page
  • Talking with more centralized exchanges, in order to secure good starting listings for DTC at moderate prices
  • Preparing documentation for new users to make DTube more friendly, and to incentivize more people to contribute to the code

We will use this delay in the best way we can and we are sure that our community will be pleased by the results.

But... what is ready ?

  • We moved the centralized file upload to newer servers. We can hold videos your videos for a minimum of 6 months now, while our total infrastructure costs were lowered
  • Added support for BTFS and SIA Skynet. Both are functional on a equal foot to IPFS
  • The player goes slightly faster to start playing videos
  • Signup bugs got fixed
  • Server-side rendering (for robots like Google or Bing) has been fixed and greatly improved. The whole website is now crawlable.
  • Airdrop is calculated and launch scripts are ready.
  • Decentralized exchanges setup process is ready (tell us in the comments which DEX you'd want to see DTC on)
  • Search engine and tags navigation is fully operational again
  • Improved Channel -> Keys page. You can now conveniently create custom keys with lower-permissions or change your master key
  • Added a new page to create account in a decentralized way
  • Added Hive blockchain support
  • Player is now embeddable on Twitter, Reddit, and many other popular social websites (use the d.tube/#!/v/... link)

It seems the corona lockdown combined with all these polishing improvements are already paying off. Thousands of new users have recently registered on the testnet. We are currently averaging about 300 new users everyday, against less than 100 in March. This trend confirms when looking at the number of daily published videos, as well as the total daily data transfered from our servers: slightly less than 4TB/day.

Take the time you need! I remember when you guys first hit the scene it was an amazing accomplishment. Do it right, take your time. Can't wait to start uploading stuff again in the near future! 🔥 🔥 Rock on dtube!!!!

Thanks for the understanding , this was really needed and we still feel bad for missing a deadline. What we actually want to provide is a smooth experience for our users.

Don't fret on the deadline, a lot of the people will understand. Rather it be done right then rushed. There is always bumps in the road, that is life. At the same time imo, at some point you have to go for it! :) Thanks, talk soon.

Me contenta que hagan este tipo de anuncios para mantenernos informados.

Hello dear friends @dtube
This is undoubtedly a highly anticipated release, and there are high expectations, however, they should take as long as it takes for things to go smoothly.
Success to all the team

Sounds good! Not a downer, there's no point in a premature launch. Good to get as much as you can "right" and functioning the way you want it to before launching. Looking forward to it!

JB :)


Take your time, @dtube!

Btw, where can we check how many tokens we have purchased so far, during the token sale?

and if you want to check your own balance you have to check your emails you receive after each purchase.
How much you got? :D Greetings my friend

Ok. Thank you! I think I bought 5000.

Can be the DTube Token be traded after launch?

Yes it will.Hope they get great exchange listing options.

Thanks for the update.
I can recomend Bitshares, Bisq and Waves dexs.
