As we continue to update our statuses the old fashioned way, switch our tabs from website to website, a lot changes at the back end of technologies and computers. With drastic changes happening every second, the internet and billions of associated lives evolve. While we may wait for YouTube and Snacpchat to update their privacy policies, there are some apps that involve you in the process. No, this is a lot more than Beta versions and commenting on what you would like to see in the app.
Do you know where your data is being stored on the internet? If you’re like many, you have not only lost control over it, but also lost track of advancements. You care even less than going with flow. Things are much more different for the content creators that we love watching. Have you seen the latest episode of that Science show you love on YouTube, or the new GRWM that your favorite beauty blogger updates or have you kept up with the Kardashians? Yes, we all have our choice of biases. Our choice of guilty pleasures. But, what if we were to tell you that your choice is imposed on you. You do not choose things, you are made to choose them out of the little, which look like many, but, little handful of options.
The problem is that the selection of genres of videos, reviews and sketches that we get to see are only being shown to us because they are popular. But, they are made popular because they are only ‘good’ or satisfactory options available to people. The classification of content is also based on socially determined factors such as kinds of sense of humors people like, the level of consumerism, economic and social values etc. All of this determines what you will see. Even if you can suggest or demand, you can not dictate these makers what you want. This is a problem tackled and resolved under the larger flag of blockchain operated networks.
While not even the infulencers own the networks, or their data and 3rd party cookies take away so much from you that you will never know because you do not care to, blockchain based solutions are trying to return to users some shreds of privacy and ownership that they are entitled to.

Video is predicted to form 82% of all Internet traffic by 2021, and blockchain may play a significant role by decentralizing the video infrastructure. Video influencers form the largest chunk of content makers of the whole internet. These range through Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube among the top user base constituencies.
Decentralizing video encoding, storage, and content distribution will dramatically reduce the cost of video traffic by tapping into $30 billion in wasted Internet computing services.
Startups like VideoCoin are already making good on the promise of freeing up this capital, which will allow entirely new and innovative ecosystems of video apps to emerge on the market.
DTube – is the blockchain based YouTube that pays users for user generated content. While the cloud based websites only claim to be user powered and rarely allow complete ownership and rights to the user, blockchain really does. So, no, blockchain will not be a bit*h and remove your video that has 2m+ views because a big multinational company does not like it. It will not. even if the views are less than a 100. This is the power of decentralisation. You make the rules, democratically. Everybody is the owner. And all of it is your intellectual property. You don’t breach no rules, you will do just as fine.
The democratic, influencer and user owned internet is here. Do what you gotta, show what you gotta, see what you wanna.
