Whereas PewDiePie has spoken on cryptocurrency before, he has never talked about it in such a positive light to his 102 million subscribers on YouTube.
Otherwise known as Felix Kjellberg, the most popular YouTuber on earth took to the world by storm over the course of 2019 with his ‘battle’ with the Indian Music company, T Series so it’s safe to say his status is that of legend.
More recently, the popular YouTuber posted on a video on 9th Jan titled, ‘Designs that will make you MAD!’ The video included a shameless advertisement at the start of the video for BitTorrent and DLive, the streaming platform that Felix now uses for his live videos. As the Content Creator explains, “BitTorrent is the biggest decentralised peer-to-peer filesharing network in the world. Powered by TRON blockchain.”
The filesharing network recently announced that DLive would be teaming up in its ecosystem and with BitTorrent being owned by the TRON Foundation, this is a big plug for the crypto space to a video which currently sits at 5,830,469 views at the time of writing.
Whereas it’s unlikely that a lot of people will have listened to PewDiePie and ran to download and set up an account with DLive from this ad, the words ‘BitTorrent’ and TRON might have sunk into a few peoples minds to have a knock-on effect to adoption.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out and whether it actually have an impact on adoption. For more news on this and other crypto updates, keep it with CryptoDaily!
