so youtube recently demonetized users with small amount of views on their channel, i was affected by it, but thankfully there is d.tube , its a decentralized video upload platform that pays out in steem cryptocurrency, thats way cooler than youtube as the amount you make increases with the value of the steem, i have had a couple of upvotes to my video that wasnt much since i probably didnt have that much views but its way better than i had recieved with little views on youtube and its decentralized so no one authority can wake up some day and decide to demonetize its users. you can check it out at www.d.tube
i will just list below platforms connected to the steem blockchain that you can earn from apart from d.tube which is a video upload and sharing platform built on the steem blockchain.

steemit.com
this is the main face of the steem blockchain, everyother platforms are connected to the steem blockchain through steemit, this means you can post to steemit through any of the other platforms. its more of a blogging platform/ social media.

dmania.lol
share your memes here and earn from it

dsound.audio
share your sounds and recordings here and earn from it. somewhat like what you have with soundcloud.

dlive.io
stream your videos live and earn from it

zappl.com
twitter like platform you earn from your zaps

busy.org
facebook kind of social network that you can earn from.

all these are built on the steem blockchain and you can earn steem on all these platforms.

Though steemit is great and all I don't think you can call dtube a worthy replacement. It is not even on the level of YouTube yet.

for earnings it is, i have seen a video with not much views earning upwards of $500, it depends on who sees it and upvotes it, with youtube you will need thousands of views to earn that much. and worse now is that it has cut off channels with little views, dtube might not compare to youtube in terms of facilities and all but if your youtube channel doesnt have much subscribers youtube wont let you monetize it so you have an option with dtube

Thanks bro. I will check this out. My sub channel got hit by new YT policy too, it has a few hundred views per month but make $20 something every month. I don't find the time to create other videos yet but it's profitable niche. I thought I'll get back and grow it later but then BOOM!!!! Demonetization. Damm! I really wish the blockchain thing will reach to the level to fight head to head with the big brothers some days. We are too much manipulated in every way these days.

your earnings depends on the voting power of the upvoters, you could have one person view and upvote (like) your video and you earn upto $500 and you could have several upvoters with little voting power and it wouldnt amount to much, but you wouldnt know who would like your video till you upload it.

How on earth will dtube pay you anything with no traffic? Youtube is the second largest search engine in the world. It's huge. That's where the money comes from.

I assume by your reply you have never really tried steemit or dtube and came to make this thread just after having a look at dtube's homepage?

thats because you don't know how dtube and the steem blockchain works, users of the platform are the ones that reward you through upvotes not just the traffic. there are no ads on the videos you earn through the community upvotes and yes steemit/steem is ranked in the top 1000 sites on alexa ranking so it has good traffic. just one upvote from a whale on the platform can give upto $500 and there are lots of those,you can do your own research on how it works

you can check my blog out on steemit @darkerhorse, i have a reputation of 53, thats not gotten by looking at the homepage, so i assume you don't know how steemit and the steem blockchain works so you don't just argue for the sake of argument coz its only would show how shallow your knowledge on a subject is, if i was you i would first do some research before i drop a comment on a post.

So why would a user rate or upvote a video you uploaded. Are they all just jumping around and klicking upvote here nd there.
I suppose they rate / upvote the video when they watched it, what equals to traffic.

I wouldn't bet on one upvote from a whale. That won't feed me or my family, especially not on a constant basis.
That whole Steem thing was always some snowball like system for me, but to be fair i never dove deep into it.
But I would bet if you invest your effort into constant growing your chanel and improving your game, your revenue will be better in mid and long term.

Most of your post in this thread read like a bet on get cash quick, and trying to find a short cut. If so I would play BlackJack.

And final question, are those your sites??

ofcourse they upvote only when they have watched and liked the video. thats why quality is priority, if your videos are original you can be sure they will be upvoted.

i was just using a whales upvote to show you if a whales likes your video you could earn that much from just few views but that doesnt mean you won't get upvotes from other users too and you might not get a whales upvote on a constant basis but i assure you there are people earning more than feeding money on the platform. i have.

since you have never dove into it you will never really understand until you dive into it, and about growing of channel, this can be done on dtube too but the difference is you dont just wake up some day and find that you grown channel doesnt meet the requirement for monetization anymore.
Most of your post in this thread read like a bet on get cash quick, and trying to find a short cut. If so I would play BlackJack.
even blackjack needs some effort to be put in in thought process, i only gave an option to those that like me were affected by the youtube new policy, if you put in the time and effort to create quality and original videos you will earn just like you would on youtube but without the uncertainty surrounding youtube, they have done it before and will keep changing policies without considering the effect it will have on the bulk of their users
And final question, are those your sites??
if you really wanted to find out you would get on google an get the answer to this final question.

I have an account with reputation of 57 and neither have I gotten it without doing anything. If you have an account with 53 reputation I am pretty sure you would know how steemit and dtube work. Steemit,dtube and dmaina are always flooded by shit or with whales and there friend's post. Unless
you are lucky and your work gets noticed you ain't earning shite.
Also, it's crypto and you don't know when it all will backfire so there's that.
It will be dumb to use one platform and give up on the other. Both of the platforms have their advantages too.
What people should do is build their audience on both dtube and YouTube. No reason why you shouldn't upload your videos on one and leave the other.

you have little faith in crypto, i like to think crypto is here to stay

if you have a reputation score of 57 then you have also earned a considerable amount on the platform coz reputation scores are increased by getting upvotes by users with higher reputation score, mostly the whales, so are you friends with the whales? its a community and naturally in a community your friends and families come first cos thats your first circle, if you make friends your circle will expand and as you keep on being active in the community you WILL get noticed, there are a couple of people i know personally that when they joined the platform they had no whale friends and upvotes but by being consistent on improving the quality of their blog they have been noticed and are earning fulltime on steemit. and yes its crypto so and a lot of people will agree with me that crypto is here to stay, and yes i agree with you that both platforms have their advantages but my point here is that with the recent youtube policy you will have to work thrice as hard on your channel to be eligible to earn.

more upvotes does not neccessarily mean more earnings, it is the weight of upvote that determines the total earnings.
whales are users on the platform with a lot of steem invested on the platform and not all of them have a high reputation score.
