Paratii Review #9 - Pornhub welcomes YouTube dissidents, token curated playlists, the ICO carnage
By The Paratii Review • Issue #9 • View online
Crypto keeps getting crushed by the big incumbents: after Facebook, Google and Twitter, now Mailchimp is blocking blockchain-related newsletters. The first of these, FB, has been disgusting the world after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, with its combo of arrogance + ads bought on financial newspapersa speech that’s impossible to swallow. At Paratii, we’ve been hard at work doing our first round of user tests and getting ready to open uploads to a wider audience. The market has taken some blows and ETH remains below $400 as of this writing. On the bright side of Ethereum, the first ETH Global Hackathon in Latin America was announced: 25-27th of May, in Buenos Aires!

Development status & Team updates
  • 🐕 We’ve started promoting select videos from our first wave of early uploaders on Twitter! Check it out at twitter.com/ParatiiVideo. There’s a dog falling over in slo-mo. You won’t regret it. Also, see that player in which the clips are playing? Guess what? Paratii Player 0.0.2 is around the corner, with its built-in wallet, sleeker controls and faster playback.

  • 📺 Behind the scenes, we’ve also made the player suitable for playing live streams on its embedded version, while working on a backend integration with Livepeer’s transcoding protocol. Early steps still, but you can expect fruitful experiments along the following months.

  • 📋Paratii-lib was renamed paratii.js, and it’s undergoing a heavy clean up + documentation, led by the Italian side of Paratii’s crew, in order to be presented at Brazil’s largest developer conference, in 20-21 April. Paratii is sponsoring a blockchain-themed hackathon there, and we’re excited to help developers build simple applications around decentralised video.
