More on D-Live

A few months ago we embedded a video concerning the YouTube alternative D-Live, which emerged in the wake of the YouTube-purge before-last as a free speech platform based on blockchain technology. 


The video took the position that D-Live was not just a new and untested platform, it was a scam. Since then there has been some walkback around the web including by the fellow who made that video. 

In the wake of his retraction and apology, SFO  recently conducted an interview with Allen Chan, one of the founders(and current Director of Growth) of D-Live

In the course of the interview, which was conducted by Direct Message, SFO established that D-Live is not at all the scam people initially feared it was. 

It's far worse.


In the interest of data redundancy, the full conversation is screen capped here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

SPECULATION: 

D-Live is a Chinese company and given the situation with the Orwellian TOS's of China affiliated (and China curious) companies, I suspect that in addition to the issues noted in the video, D-Live is a sort of honey-pot phishing scheme. The company's marketing appeals to people with eclectic views who seek to avoid walking on eggshells and risking demonetization/deplatforming. All the while D-Live is Hoovering up all their critical data (identities, credit card and routing numbers) of a self selected cross section of the sorts of people that want to maintain anonymity and have views that are likely to get them banned, brigaded, and demonetized, and that data, collated in one place is a commodity in and of itself, being of the greatest value to the worst people.
