Acquired by TRON ecosystem DLive streaming service has received heavy criticism due to the broadcast of the capture of the Capitol
The DLive streaming service, bought by TRON in 2019, has received criticism after users of the service streamed the capture of the Capitol on January 6.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the streamers were able to not only broadcast the storming of the Capitol, but also collect donations during the broadcast..
“Suprematists and neo-fascists often use DLive as a streaming alternative to YouTube, in part because content is rarely heavily moderated,” the website says..
It is noted that Tim Gionet (an American media personality also known under the pseudonym Baked Alaska) was among the streamers. Gionet has been blocked on many social media sites, including Twitter and YouTube due to repeated violations of the services’ rules, but continues to publish content on DLive..
During its existence, DLive has paid out hundreds of thousands of streamers, mostly through donations through cryptocurrencies. Southern Poverty Law Center claims it charges a 25% commission on every donation.
The day after the Capitol incident, DLive tweeted that it “does not condone illegal activity or violence,” and urged users to report channels that violate community guidelines.

However, DLive is not the only service on which broadcasts took place from inside the Capitol. The air was also broadcast on Facebook.In June 2019, Facebook announced preparations for the release of the digital currency Libra. The social networking project immediately attracted attention … More, Twitter and YouTube, but the services removed such content almost immediately. A Facebook spokesman in an interview with The Verge called the storming of the Capitol a “shame”:
“We prohibit incitement and incitement to violence on our platform. We actively review and remove any content that violates these rules. “.
In December 2020, the founder of the TRON ecosystem, Justin Sun, announced the expansion of DLive functionality with support for decentralization through a peer-to-peer connection, where users can stream content “on their own terms.”.
