After a month of development and an alpha test, we are happy to bring DLive to the public and show you how to use it ( https://www.dlive.io ). We recommend Chrome as the test field.
What is DLive?
DLive is the first decentralized video live streaming platform on Steem! It can be seen as the Twitch on the Steem blockchain including, but not limited to, gaming contents.

Let’s start it!
We are using SteemConnect as our login tool because it makes STEEM login and key management much easier, and it’s officially run by @busy.org . Here’s the link: https://email@example.com/introducing-steemconnect-by-busy-identity-authentication-authorization-for-steem-blockchain-s-apps
