The weekly update on BitTube — 1st June 2018 — Premium is coming
It is Friday, a busy week done for the team and a new update for the community.
The first Premium product launched
Sell and buy views in USD or TUBE. BitTube publishers do have the possibility to offer their videos for rent or sell. Three rental periods are available — 24h, 48h, and 78h. Viewers can watch this content when logged in within this period. Additionally, users have the flexibility to purchase lifetime access to the video.
The price for the content can be set in TUBE or USD.
First steps towards BitTube Airtime model
Mining while watching a video is now part of history with the upcoming update . Real web mining will not be in place anymore, we already implemented the airtime mode and it will start to track the airtime on testnet until the real fork. This way we can monitor the data and make sure that everything is fine before the fork happens.
This will lower the noise of the fan to a minimum and take off the “mining authorization”.
With these steps we are getting into the airtime model, building it each week until it’s completely functional somewhere around mid July 2018.
