Weekly update 3rd of August

Aug 3, 2018 | General

Here it comes August while most of the people are looking forward to the vacations we at BitTube are sweating to deliver great news about the platform developments. Brace yourself!

New Coin Page design

We hope the Coin page will give you a quick overview of what BitTube is and how it works. You can also find upcoming features description and of course our explainer video. Visit the page here (link)

BitTube Pro membership

Designed to boost video makers experience and offer a toolset for exposure. The best choice for those who want to establish a worthy presence on the platform. Only Pro members will have the ability to publish video-on-demand productions. They can upload higher definition videos in 4K and 8K. For the Pro broadcasting channels, multi-bitrate streaming will be a default setting. Features like channel stay and content protections are included in the subscription increasing security and overall Airtime.

Upcoming Debit card

For many crypto enthusiasts adoption has been a long time grumble, for the mass it will come without notice. Our legal department is arranging the foundations to implement payment gateway within the platform allowing direct purchase of TUBE respectively BitTube premium products. The system will function seamlessly. A third party company will assist the issuing of a debit card associated with the user’s online wallet which will allow the spending of TUBEs integrated worldwide wherever a POS system is available, or an ATM fiat withdraws. BitTube will focus primarily on the EU market gradually expanding to cover more “complicated” areas. An early-bird sign-ups for the card will be open at the end of August, and first deliveries are expected late November. Minimum age of 18 and a KYC verification process will be compulsory. Ownership of the card will require staking of 5000 TUBEs which will be locked during the card is active. BitTube Debit card owners will benefit a free Pro membership subscription and other premium benefits which we will be announced separately. An alternative to the debit card could be a prepaid card giving most of the benefits as well.

Implemented the first stage of Airtime in front/ back ends.

The Airtime explorer page starts to take shape. We focus on transparency and fair reward distribution. The statistics page will offer information about the model and current transactions. Here maybe everyone can guess the keyword- trustless system.
