YouTube’s most popular content creator will ditch the video juggernaut in favor of crypto-based DLive in a massive win for blockchain awareness and adoption.

With 93 million subscribers (and counting) Felix Kjellberg AKA PewDiePie is without question YouTube’s biggest, most successful creator, with an estimated net worth of between $30-$50 million.

His “work” as a vlogger, entertainer and gamer is recognized the world over and has spawned a million imitators and helped propel the platform’s popularity, but he is leaving the site with the hope of being treated as a “real partner” at DLive.

OUCH!
The move to the decentralized platform which is built on the Lino blockchain (Livestream Now) and uses tokens to reward content creators for their work is a severe blow to Google-owned YouTube, as he’ll be taking his loyal subscribers with him.

Kjellberg said:

I’m excited to start live-streaming again regularly. DLive is great for me because I’m treated like a real partner just like all of the other streamers on their unique platform.”

In a video yesterday (April 9), PewDiePie announced the partnership and his reasons behind the move.

To date, the video has been watched more than 4.3 million times by PewDiePie’s legion of fans and has already generated 36,000 comments.He hasn’t published a video yet but already has 76,000 followers (and growing) and has promised in his first DLive stream on April 14, to dish out between $10,000 and $50,000 in Lino tokens to other content creators to share the wealth and help the platform to develop.
