DTube Open Sign-up

in dtube •  2 years ago  (edited)


We're proud to announce that on Wednesday the 18th of September DTube will be opening its doors to non-steem users for the first time.

Non-Steemians can now finally sign up for DTube on:


The Steps

We currently collect these pieces of information:

  1. Date of Birth
  2. Email (+1000 VP, +0.1 DTC)
  3. Facebook Account (+1000 VP, +1 DTC)
  4. Phone Number (+1000 VP, +5 DTC)

These information are not collected for the purpose of marketing, but purely to avoid kids under 13 from accessing DTube, and most importantly stops robots from programatically creating many accounts, as happened with the SteemIt signup near it's inception.

If you complete the full verification steps without skipping any, your starting account should begin with 6.1 DTC and 3000 VP.

Keep in mind those numbers are purely for the testnet, and we will likely be less generous once the main-net and token trading opens.

Testnet Accounts

These newly created accounts will not be included in the up-coming airdrop. As such they are not entitled to any main-net DTC and all users who have created accounts using this method will lose them unless they acquire an initial source of funding in main-net (participation in the token sale)

STEEM userbase

Over the past 24 months, our userbase has flourished with 189,000 active users, and a rough average of 20 new videos ever hour. During this time we've distributed 1.1 Million USD-equivalent to our users via the delegation we've been entrusted with.

Avalon users

There are a number of reasons why Avalon is the right step forward for DTube (You can read more here).

With this comes the opportunity to have Avalon users who are not steem users. This means we can create as many accounts as needed and allow new users to be onboarded rapidly.

We feel this will help us acheive a wider audience, introduce DTube to more people and allow them to get going as fast as possible.

STEEM Onboarding

As noted during the Delegation renewal procedure, created accounts are a metric that the new delegation committee will be measuring from now on.

STEEM accounts are a commodity, they cost a small sum to make and to create a new STEEM account on each new DTube account, would probably be a waste.

We plan to offer free STEEM accounts to the best DTubers who don't own one in the future, based on their "performance".

DTube had no ability to evaluate users before and users which are clear assets to the community can be rewarded with STEEM accounts.


New users who do not own a STEEM account will still be eligible for curation, as we would like to give everyone the same chance at getting visibility in hot or trending. No preference will be given to whether you have a STEEM, or Avalon account, or both. We will keep judging videos based on the video alone.


We are commited to making STEEM better and hope that DTube can serve as a gateway for users to co-exist along side steemians and then when proven worthy brought into the fold.

We're very much looking forward to the future and hope you'll assist us in welcoming all new users.

Sing up problem 😂

Dtube ought to support LBRY video URLs.

This post has been included in the latest edition of The Steem News - a compilation of the key news stories on the Steem blockchain.

This is great news. I think letting users join and avoiding the endless bottleneck with Steem is crucial. It is exciting to see this baby grow!!!

Yeah, this is great! I love the fact that dtube is now completely leaving the steem platform, without the need to create steem accounts, I'm sure steem will prosper! ...somehow...

During this time we've distributed 1.1 Million (???, USD, Steem?)

Don't keep us waiting, the tension is killing us!

lol sorry we forgot about this before publish, we edited it

It is a good idea to make it open.
We, the content creators on DTube, will get much more likes now.

Good decision. I appreciate it.

Hope with this decision and change, @DTube will grow faster. If you make quality content here.

Wow this is great news and just in time for the IEO :)

Hold on, I'm already a d.tube registered user, now you want my DoB, email, FB and PN! Are you for real?
You just managed to put me off ...

If you are a steemian and you already created the d.tube account from the steem account since the v0.9 update, you do not need to do anything. This process is for other people coming outside of STEEM/existing dtube users ;)

I'm so happy to hear this new update. I already made some few promotions on Twitter for @dtube for more people to troop in and sign up for more people to create good video content even the non steemians. I'm so happy

"Facebook Account (+1000 VP, +1.5 DTC)"
Are only FB users welcome as non-steemians?

Facebook is a test to try to onboard users from linking their social media accounts, we are planning to extend it to support more in the future (reddit, google, etc).

Also facebook is not forced, its like the phone number. All other steps (email, captcha, keys, username choosing) are forced though.

Cool, glad to see you guys are still chugging along. Question: When a user signs up without a Steem account & posts a video, I'm assuming that video won't get posted to the Steem blockchain then, correct? Or do you handle that under a sort of "community account" or something?

You have the possibility to "co-post" to steem and to dtube blockchains. Just need to have an account on both blockchains and signup to socially interact on both Chains at the same time.
You can even manage voting power % and able/disable a Chain just by ckicking on the top left menu Capture.PNG

I tried. But signing up and getting it to work befuddled me.

I feel like Dtube is doing he right calls. You have to evolve and adapt if you want to be relevant in the future of blockchain and social media. LETS GO DTUBE!

And yet we criticized dlive when they pulled this?

I'm so happy for you guys! This will be huge for your growth. Bittersweet in a way but it's necessary for you to take over Youtube. LOL. I cant wait to understand and learn more about what is in store . I can see this opening so many possibilities. Congratulations guys.

Greats news for me.
I am now free from the problem with my dtube account.
Thanks @dtube

Amazing Good News ! :)

That sounds like great news! Hopefully we see people like Pewdiepie hop on Dtube!

Sure, bring him on :=)

Done. I just gave him a shout out for D.tube and hopefully since he joined Dlive, which also started on Steem maybe he’ll come to D.tube as well

Maybe other people should also message him to bring more attention to d.tube

I remember when a little birdy told me that dtube still runs on steem, and it's IMPOSSIBLE to use dtube without a steem account...

So, @heimindanger, I guess I just complained a bit too early last time right? Should've waited a few weeks so that my criticism is now valid. DTUBE HAS LEFT STEEM!

You couldn't get users to signup for steem accounts when it was MANDATORY, so you're obviously not going to be able to convert them now that it's OPTIONAL. Don't try to feed me anymore of your bullshit about me not knowing what I'm talking about. I can see the fucking writing on the walls! For fucks sake, you guys are doing exactly what I raised issues about, but you told me I was wrong.


Hi, where to contact you? Any questions for you!

Is there a mobile app for iPhone?

Great increase and presence in the video space with promising challenging of more traditional platforms. I would say for YOUTUBE to fear and hope that at some point it will be able to do so.
For the moment DTUBE is as David and YOUTUBE as Goliath, but the community is stronger and the freedom is endless. Great success!

This should have a huge effect on this platform and the users and bring loads of new users onboard.
Keep up the good work DTube :)

I try to imagine how many people would like to join in, being asked forefront for all their personal details.
