There are a lot of things happening behind the scenes of most blockchain ecosystems. The move by DLive to the TRON blockchain is one such development.
The blockchain content sharing platform has also become part of the BitTorrent ecosystem. That integration is now leading to a major development for Android users.
DLive Joins BitTorrent
In late December 2019, the DLive team made a crucial announcement. Rather than sticking with the existing infrastructure, the content sharing platform became a part of the BitTorrent ecosystem. As such, the migration to the TRON blockchain began.
Over time, there will be more announcements and developments due to this partnership. For DLive, using the TRON blockchain can have many different benefits. It is a very active ecosystem, and seems to scale relatively well. Moreover, becoming part of BitTorrent allows them to reach billions of people.
One of DLive’s core aspects is the streaming feature. PewDiePie is a major contributor to the platform in this regard. By leveraging BitTorrent technology to bolster streaming, an interesting situation is created. There are many different opportunities to explore in the coming years.
The Android app Integration
This week, the BitTorent team made an important announcement. They have confirmed that users of the Android app can watch DLive videos directly. No third-party application app is needed to gain access to this content.

From a convenience point of view, this is a positive development. It also helps strengthen the new ties between the different parties involved. By providing this feature to Android users, this will be a good test for DLive’s functionality as well. If it can handle a high amount of viewers without problems, the concept can be expanded upon further in the future.
Developments like these may seem small at first. However, they can pave the way for a truly decentralized ecosystem. Especially when it comes to video creation and live streaming, options remain fairly limited. The success – or failure – or DLive is crucial for the future of this specific industry.
