He also put out a poll asking the members of the Twitterati to take a guess at what the new acquisition is. A majority voted for Steem.

Teen Rapper Lil Pump Pushes Online Merchandising with Bitcoin

Forbes 30 Under 30 newbie teen rapper AKA Lil Pump is moving with the times making purchases on his website available to Bitcoiners.

The 18-year-old Colombian-American rapper Gazzy García, who now has 1.2 million followers on Twitter, and if that’s not enough, another 17.8 million on Instagram, is giving his merchandizing a 21st century feel with Bitcoin payment now being available to fans after memorabilia.

The fact that fans can now pick up their Lil Pump T-shirts or keychains online with Bitcoin is sure to meet with approval with young Bitcoiners. More importantly, by opening up to blockchain technology and accepting Bitcoin payments on his online store, he is sure to attract new adherents to these technologies that otherwise would be limited to purchasing using online store cards or debit cards.

The move coming after YouTube’s number one star PewDiePie moved to a decentralized platform is certainly in line with artists starting to pick up on young adopters as a new market for crypto. Earlier this month the Swedish YouTube star found a new home on blockchain where his 94 million followers can live stream his latest offerings on DLive, built using blockchain protocol Lino and currently supported by 3 million monthly active users, and 35,000 active streamers.

Lightning Network has made Lil Pump merchandizing payable with Bitcoin thanks to artist’s partnership with OpenNode. The Lightning Network is starting to feed back into the younger community as it is primarily used by younger crypto owners for mini transactions such as music downloads and coffee. It’s still a good way of spreading cryptocurrency awareness throughout the community.

YouTuber PewDiePie Switches to Blockchain-Backed DLive

YouTuber PewDiePie Switches to Blockchain-Backed DLive

Popular YouTuber PewDiePie has decided to take his multi-million audience elsewhere after continuous calls for his removal from Google over a number of years.

Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, better known online as PewDiePie, is a Swedish YouTuber, comedian and gamer–commentator, best known for his YouTube video content, which mainly consists of Let’s Play commentaries, vlogs, and comedy formatted shows.

Kjellberg’s new home is blockchain built DLive where his 94 million followers will be able to livestream his latest offerings from 15 April. DLive, built using blockchain protocol Lino is currently supported by 3 million monthly active users, and 35,000 active streamers.

The broadcaster’s past online has been a rocky one, with a history of racist and anti-Semitic material and white supremacist content being challenged by the establishment, despite Kjellburg claiming that all is done in the spirit of alternative comedy. He commented on the planned switch, clearly happy to move on to another platform:

“I’m excited to start live streaming again regularly! DLive is great for me because I’m treated like a real partner, just like all of the other streamers on DLive’s unique platform.”

Wilson Wei, Co-Founder of Lino Network, claims that DLive is less a competitive environment for commentary than a place where creativity is shared by users who aim for high-quality content. He commented on PewDiePie’s recent addition:

“PewDiePie has always been a fierce advocate for the value that creators bring with their hard work, time, and effort, and he believes in DLive’s vision. Our livestreaming platform has the potential to forever change how creators are represented in this industry, and we’re proud to have PewDiePie help us lead this charge.”
