DTube and the spectacular changes that come on the platform!
Project name: DTube
DTube (https://github.com/dtube/dtube) is a decentralized video platform in Steem's blockchain, where users can generate direct earnings through cryptocurrencies in relation to the social actions their videos obtain (likes).
In this post I want to talk a bit about the changes that are coming on DTube, which as many will know, is a platform where we can upload and share our videos as we do on YouTube, only we will be using the Steem blockchain.
One of the first things that has caught my attention is that in https://new.d.tube/ (Test Site), we can see an option to claim our username, this is important that you do to reserve the name that is to your liking, we already know that most will claim the same name from their Steem account, but hey, you never know.
You can also create a new kind of account where you must save your public key and your private key, this is obviously in case you want to access later from a new computer or if you lose your data already saved, let's say it will be your new "wallet" backup for DTube.
Another of the wonderful changes we will have is that you can upload videos from other social networks simply by placing the link.

DTC (DTube Test Coins) and VP (Voting Power)
Very soon DTube will change the way in which heals are performed, since they will start using their own token in Steem's blockchain and besides that, the DTubers must have VP to be able to interact in the platform, that is, we will win the new token and VP voting, commenting, among other social actions that the network allows us.

We can also send the new DTube token to our favorite content creators, as shown in the image.

Improvements in search function and trend tags
Among other minor changes we can also add that the search function and the trend tag function will be improved, which as we can see in the Test Site, are working perfectly.

Change of site language
In the new and improved version of DTube we can also choose from a variety of languages to configure it in the interface of the site, as we can do in the current version.

Configure our voting power
In the new version of DTube we can configure our voting power with which we will vote the videos.

And the last of the great new features that we can see in what will be the new version of DTube is the PALTube section, which apparently will be an association of the platform with the people of PALnet.io, since by selecting it we can see that The tokens generated by the videos are PAL tokens.

DTube is slowly becoming one of the great rivals for other non-decentralized video platforms, definitely these changes will be a great step forward and a joy for all users who upload their videos in this spectacular social network hosted on the Steem blockchain.
