DLive growing steadily
Where the streaming wars is mainly a battle between Twitch.TV and Mixer, DLive is waiting in the shadows. Parent companies Microsoft and Amazon are trying to sign up influencers with exclusivity deals. A variety of streamers moved away from Twitch and signed up with Mixer, including media sensation Ninja.
In April famous Youtuber Felix Kjellberg announced that he would stream exclusively on DLive. Even though he still posts videos on YouTube under his pseudonym PewDiePie, the Swedish influencer moved away from YouTube and Twitch for his live streams. On DLive he now has over 641 thousand followers.
Before PewDiePie joined DLive the video platform had 3 million monthly active users. Seven months later that’s now 5 million viewers and streamers. To continue this growth, DLive recently partnered with Theta Labs. Their peer-to-peer technology will make it easier for DLive to operate, as operational costs will drop and the platform’s capacity grows significantly.
