Jeff Bezos Makes an Investment in African Fintech Firm Chipper Cash

By With No comments:

 With the involvement of Bezos Expeditions, the personal VC fund of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, African cross-border Fintech company Chipper Cash has raised a $30 million Series B funding round led by Ribbit Capital.

Ugandan Ham Serunjogi and Ghanaian Maijid Moujaled created Chipper Cash in San Francisco in 2018. In seven nations, the company provides mobile, no-fee, P2P payment services: Ghana, Uganda, Nigeria, Tanzania, Rwanda, South Africa, and Kenya.

The start-up also operates Chipper Checkout, a merchant-focused, fee-based payment product that generates revenue to support the free mobile money business of Chipper Cash, alongside its P2P app. The business has expanded to 3 million users and processes an average of 80,000 transactions daily on its website. According to CEO Ham Serunjogi, Chipper Cash hit a monthly payment volume of $100 million in June 2020.

The start-up plans to broaden its products and geographic reach as part of the Series B increase. That involves providing more business payment solutions, cryptocurrency trading options, and investment services on the product side.

"At our heart, we will always be a P2P financial transfer network. But, Serunjogi told TechCrunch on a call, we had demanded from our users to provide other value services... such as buying cryptocurrency assets and making stock investments.

On its website and app, Chipper Cash has introduced beta dropdowns to buy and sell Bitcoin and invest in U.S. stocks from Africa, the latter via a collaboration with DriveWealth, the U.S. financial services business.

We will first launch [the stock product] in Nigeria, so that Nigerians can purchase fractional stocks via our apps, such as Tesla shares, Apple shares or Amazon shares, and others. We will extend into other nations afterward,' Serunjogi said.

The start-up plans to deliver more API payment solutions on the company's financial services side. "We have received a lot of requests to be able to obtain payments for the selling of products from people on our P2P website, who also have business enterprises," Serunjogi explained.

Chipper Cash is also planning to use its Series B funding to further expand its country, which the company will announce by the end of 2021.

The sponsorship of Chipper Cash by Jeff Bezos follows a recent series of events that have increased the profile of the start-up scene in Africa. The continent's tech ecosystem has been one of the world's fastest-growing in venture capital and start-up growth over the last decade, concentrated in countries such as Nigeria, Kenya, and South Africa.

Bringing online the huge unbanked population of Africa and underbanked consumers and SMEs has been a major factor. According to World Bank numbers, about 66 percent of Sub-Saharan Africa's 1 billion people don't have a bank account.

As such, fintech has become the top-funded tech industry in Africa, receiving the bulk of an estimated $2 billion in VC that went to startups in 2019. Even with the rapid growth of venture financing over the last decade, the African tech scene was performance light, with only one recognized unicorn (Jumia e-commerce venture) a handful of exits, and no big offerings of public share. Last year that changed.

Jumia, backed by investors including Goldman Sachs and Mastercard, went public in an NYSE IPO in April 2019. Later in the year after a $200 million investment by Visa, Nigerian fintech firm Interswitch achieved unicorn status.

Network International acquired East African payments DPO for $288 million this year and WorldRemit acquired Sendwave for $500 million in August.

Last month, when Stripe acquired Nigerian payment gateway start-up Paystack for a record $200 million, one of the most important liquidity events in African tech happened.

A spokesperson for Bezos Expeditions confirmed the investment of the fund in Chipper Cash in an email to TechCrunch, but refused to comment on further plans to back African startups. The investment will be the first in Africa for the fund, according to Crunchbase data. It's worth noting that Bezos Expeditions is not related to Amazon, the hallmark business venture of Jeff Bezos.

For Chipper Cash, for the San Francisco-based payments firm and founders Ham Serunjogi and Maijid Moujaled, the $30 million Series B raise caps an event-filled two years. The two came to America for studies, met in Iowa while studying at Grinnell College, and went to Silicon Valley for major tech stints: Serunjogi's Facebook and Moujaled's Flickr and Yahoo!.

The startup call beckoned and the duo persuaded 500 Entrepreneurs and Liquid 2 Ventures, co-founded by American football legend Joe Montana, to assist their business with seed funds after launching Chipper Cash in 2018. In 2019, the start-up expanded to Nigeria and Southern Africa entered into a payment agreement with Visa in April, and raised Series A $13.8 million in June.

Ham Serunjogi, the founder of Chipper Cash, claims that the backing of his business by a prominent tech figure, such as Jeff Bezos (the richest individual in the world), has benefits beyond his company.

When a world-class investor like Bezos or Ribbit ventures out of their sweet spot to a new field where they have not previously made investments," he said, "it's a big deal. "Ultimately, the African tech ecosystem overall is the winner of those stuff happening, as it would attract more money to African startups from companies of that caliber."

Messaging App Go SMS Pro Exposed User's Data

By With No comments:

 One of Android's most common messaging apps, Go SMS Pro, reveals images, videos and other files privately sent by its users. Worse, nothing has been done by the software creator to correct the bug.

Cybersecurity firm Trustwave made the discovery and shared the information with TechCrunch.

In August, security researchers at Trustwave noticed the bug and approached the app maker with a 90-day deadline to address the issue, as is common practice in the disclosure of vulnerabilities to allow enough time for a fix. But the researchers went public after the deadline expired without hearing back.

The app uploads the file to its servers when a Go SMS Pro user sends a photo, video, or other files to someone who does not have the app installed and requires the user to share a web address via text message so that the recipient can see the file without downloading the app. But these web addresses were sequential, the researchers discovered. In reality, a web address would be created irrespective of the time a file was shared, even between app users. This meant that anyone who knew about the predictable web address could have accessed the files of users via millions of different web addresses.

According to its listing in Google Play, Go SMS Pro has over 100 million installations.

The researcher's results were confirmed by TechCrunch. They found a person's phone number, a screenshot of a bank transfer, an order confirmation with someone's home address, an arrest record, and much more explicit images than we expected to be reasonably truthful while viewing just a few dozen links.

Although it was not possible to target any individual person, Karl Sigler, senior security research manager at Trustwave, said that any file sent using the app was open to public access. "He said An intruder can build scripts that can throw a broad net over all the media files stored in the cloud case.

As the researchers, there was little luck getting a response from the app creator. Two email addresses associated with the app were emailed by TechCrunch. One email bounced back immediately, stating that because of a full inbox, the email could not be sent. According to TechCrunch's email open tracker, the other email was opened, but a follow-up email did not.

If you are looking for a messaging app that protects your privacy, you may want to try WhatsApp, Wire, Telegram, Signal because they are end-to-end encrypted

Microsoft Introduces New Shopping Tools On the Edge Browser

By With No comments:

 Today, Microsoft revealed a few Edge browser updates that are all about shopping. Edge will now also automatically locate coupons for you in addition to expanding the price comparison feature the team revealed last month. The business is also launching a new shopping hub in its search engine for Bing. Undoubtedly, the timing here is influenced by the holiday shopping season, although it seems like Black Friday-style sales already began weeks earlier this year.

The possible utility of the tools for price comparison is very apparent. In Edge Collections, this mostly works fairly well, but sometimes it could also be a frustrating experience because it just wouldn't pull any data from certain places for things you saved. Now you'll see a new badge pop up in the URL bar with this price comparison running in the background all the time, which helps you to open the price comparison. And if you've already found the best deal, that will tell you right away, too.

At least in the Edge Canary, where this was already available for a little bit, it was hit and missed as well. When you shop on Amazon, for example, it seems to work just fine, as long as there's just one SKU of an object. It doesn't really seem to kick in if there are different colors, sizes, or other choices available, which is a little frustrating.

The coupon feature, too, is a little bit of a disappointment. It operates more reliably and tends to extract information from most of the regular coupon sites (think RetailMeNot and Slickdeals), but all it does is display coupons around the web. As most coupons only apply to a small number of products, it easily seems like a waste of time to click on the coupon badge. To be fair, the team has added a nifty feature where Bing will try to apply all the coupons it has found at checkout. That could be a time and money-saver opportunity. This feels like an area of development, however, given the close collaboration with the Bing team in other fields. I shut it off.

The announcement is also being used by Microsoft to introduce a new Edge URL shortener. Now when you paste the connection you copied from the address bar, it automatically transforms the website title from a long, nonsensical URL address to a short hyperlink. If you prefer the full URL, you can use the context menu to convert it to plain text, Microsoft explains. In certain cases, I think that makes sense. However, most of the time, I just want the connection (and no third-party in-between so I hope it can be switched off easily, too.

Google Introduces iOS Widgets for Gmail, Drive and Fit

By With No comments:

 Google, with a new feature of iOS 14, has modified its flagship iPhone applications with support for home screen widgets. In order to place useful information on the home screen or to provide easy access to popular tasks, the company announced today that it is rolling out new widgets for Gmail, Google Drive, Google Fit, and soon Google Calendar and Google Chrome. The firm had already launched a widget back in September for its Google Search app.

For the most part, the latest widgets appear to be useful home screen additions for someone who uses the products of Google daily. The Gmail widget is a little missing, however.

While the Google Drive widget provides quick access to a few of your most recent documents with a tap, you can't preview your emails with the Gmail widget. Instead, you can tap or write a new message to check your inbox, and there's a button to display your unread count. Of course, you don't need an entire widget to know how many emails are waiting for you if you are using iOS icon badges.

By contrast, when it comes to iOS widgets, several alternative email applications are outdoing Gmail. For example, Basecamp's Hey app includes a number of widgets that provide previews of messages.

Even if Gmail did not include message previews, if the widget enabled users to customize it in some way that was more useful to them personally, it would have been interesting.

It might warn you, for instance, how many unread emails you have from a specific individual, such as your boss, or an email domain, like your job. Or how many were linked with a specific name. Or maybe you could be alerted to how many unread emails are deemed important" in your Priority Inbox if you use the inbox configuration.

Meanwhile, quick access to files and a search bar are included in the Google Drive iOS widget. The Google Fit widget makes tracking your behavior from the home screen, including Heart Points and Steps, simple.

The planned widget for Google Calendar is not out yet, but yesterday, Google gave a look at what's to come. The widget looks a lot like a mini calendar, with the appointments of the day, stacked for easier reading, and color code. A tap too will take you to your full calendar.

With support for a search bar, incognito mode, voice search, and QR code scanning, a Chrome widget is also coming soon, just like today's main Google Search widget offers.

Except for Calendar and Chrome, all of the widgets are available now. Google notes that the former is expected in the "coming weeks" and the latter "in the new year."

Google Stadia and GeForce Now Coming to iOS As Web Application

By With No comments:

Both Google and Nvidia had some news yesterday about their respective cloud gaming services. Let's begin with Nvidia. GeForce Now is now available as a mobile app on the iPhone and on the iPad. For now, the company claims it's a beta, but you can begin using it on your iOS device by heading over to play.geforcenow.com.

GeForce Now is a tool for cloud gaming that operates with your own library of games. On those third-party platforms, you can connect to your Steam, Epic, and Ubisoft Connect accounts and play games that you have already purchased, with GOG support coming soon. Also available on macOS, Android and Windows is GeForce Now.

In order to be on GeForce Now, game publishers have to opt-in, which means you won't find the whole Steam library on the service. All the same, the list is very long already.

Right now, accessing the Founders version, which lets you play whenever you want and for as long as you want, costs $5 a month. It's an introductory price, which means that in the future, Nvidia will mostly increase prices.

With a free account, you can also try the service. You're restricted to one-hour sessions and hardware that's less efficient. There are a few slots as well. For example, to start a game with a free account right now you have to wait 11 minutes.

Once you've added the web app to your iOS home screen, you can launch the full-screen service without the Safari interface. A Bluetooth controller can be attached to it. Unfortunately, you can't use a mouse or a keyboard.

The firm says it is actively working on a touch-friendly version of Fortnite with Epic Games so that iOS fans can enjoy the game again. It will probably increase service use.

As for Google, 12 months after the Stadia launch, the company released an update. Stadia, unlike GeForce Now, acts more like a console. You have to explicitly purchase games for the platform. There are a hundred games on the platform that you get with an optional Stadia Pro subscription, including some games.

The firm says that in the coming weeks, iOS testing should commence. This is going to be the first stage of our progressive web application for iOS. Your input will help us enhance the Stadia experience for everyone as we test efficiency and add more features. The company wrote, "You can expect this feature to begin rolling out several weeks from now."

Gmail Login Account Sign In

                                       Gmail Login Account Sign In 
Gmail Login Account Sign In

What do you share when you use Facebook or Google to sign in?
With your Facebook or Google credentials, there are tens of thousands of applications and pages (if not more) that let you sign in. It's a quicker way to log in — and saves you the hassle of creating and recalling countless different usernames and passwords. But do you know what you really sign up for when you sign in?

Here are the fundamentals.

Why login to other pages or applications using Facebook and Google?

Convenience is the simple answer here. Using your Facebook and Google logins saves you the effort for each app you sign in to have to keep track of a lot of different usernames and passwords. (Because we all use unique names and strong passwords for each of our different apps ... right?) So, instead of recalling your login information for apps such as Pinterest, Etsy, Trip Advisor or countless other places and apps that you may visit on occasion, all you have to do is use one of the logins that you already know by heart.

Protection is another gain. You are using the security infrastructure and protocols of those large sites by using Google or Facebook to log in, all of which track your account and report suspicious behavior and have stronger authentication capabilities than JoeShmo.com.

But what if it steals your password? Instead of just one thing, doesn't that just give hackers access to everything?

Your password is already kind of a hacker's way into everything when it comes to Gmail. If your email password is intercepted by a malicious actor, for any apps you use, he can request a password reset connection. Then it will be sent to the account that he just hacked into. Using your Google credentials to log in to other applications, therefore, does not present a new security challenge beyond what a hacker with your password would already do.

How does it work?
Google and Facebook are vouching for you, in essence. The login dialog box that pops up is actually created by the company when you want to sign into an app with either Google or Facebook, not by the app you're trying to open. "You put your username and password in and the site reports back to the app saying," Yes, we know this individual and have verified that she is who she says she is. You can continue.

What is Snapchat - What Snapchat Real Is!

By With No comments:

What is Snapchat - Individuals like to capture everything that is happening with their lives. You can take a snap of anything under the sun. Whether it's the straightforward things like your morning coffee, your pet dog, or your clothing of the day. You can share performance video clips, traveling experiences, DIY guides, and many more.

There is a strange personal gratification when you get to post and also share little bits of your life online. It has actually become a practice, more so a continuous part of our everyday routine.

What makes it more appealing is that there are social media applications that permit us to share these little bits and also pieces to individuals near to us. We can let them recognize as well as see things we delight in and also the setting we are presently in. It's as if linking as well as obtaining closer to them yet practically.

what is snapchat

Several sorts of social media sites apps in the here and now concentrated on posting images and also videos. To name a few, Instagram, is known for its classic user interface as well as service efficiency in advertising and marketing via pictures. Pinterest masters showcasing individual brand names and also markets. On the other hand, discovering how to make use of TikTok is very important to share amusing videos.

Yet, Snapchat still has aside as well as stays as legendary multimedia messaging App. It allows you to enjoy person-to-person interaction. It features techniques and dynamics via pictures as well as videos. One can never call a far better social App than this.

What Is Snapchat?

Snapchat is a social and also multimedia App that focuses on photos and video clips. You can add and message your friends, capture minutes, as well as share stories. It is a real-time communication portal. It lets you send out a picture that disappears. Snapchat is not the regular social media App that enables individuals to share images and videos. There are built-in impacts, but you can likewise develop your filters and also geotags. You can include a more individual touch to every content you wish to publish. It is expanding and also updating with every pattern. Additionally, users can send personal messages in an object-oriented strategy. You can manage whether you wish to erase or conserve them. Somehow, you are in full control of your account.

In Snapchat, any picture or video you take is called a "breeze". The breaks you upload only last for 1 day. When you put together a series of breaks, it is called a "Snapchat story". The visibility of media web content like pictures and video clips are most likely what keeps Snapchat alive. It is the main course of the whole dish.

You can download and install the Snapchat App on Google Play for Android and App Store for iOS.

What is Snapchat Premium?

Premium Snapchat can be considered as Snapchat's hidden edge. By the word "Premium" it does not imply that by subscribing to it, you will get extra and restricted services in Snapchat. Yet that isn't completely wrong. It's just that, there is no "account" set on Premium. It is only a created concept since users market and others pay cash for it. Premium Snapchat is made by users who share adult material for cash. Individuals who sell such exclusive web content do not have a special account. Unlike the routine Snapchat account, Premium accounts have the "Subscribe" button.

Generally, a Premium Snapchat is a regular account. However, you readjust its privacy to restrict just those who you intend to see your breaks. This way, only individuals they enable can have accessibility to their material.

YouTube is arguably the most popular website on the internet for uploading free online videos. It hosts billions of videos watched and commented daily by individuals.
Its huge user base continues to actively expand with the addition of a massive amount of content each day. However, without any prior indication, the platform guidelines will be updated. A large fraction of disgruntled users are searching for other alternative YouTube websites that can provide them with free video hosting and related content.
If you are one of them and are checking for various video streaming sites, here's a list of the best YouTube alternatives for 2020.
  • DailyMotion
  • TikTok
  • Vimeo
  • Metacafe
  • IGTV
  • DTube
  • Veoh
  • Internet Archive
  • 9Gag TV
  • The Open Video Project
  • Facebook’s Search Option
  • PeerTube

1. Dailymotion

Among video sharing sites like Youtube, Dailymotion is already a popular name and also has an interface similar to it. Here, on the homepage, one can find trending videos or find more through the section of categories and search bar at the top.
At a resolution of 1080p, content creators can upload content up to 4 GB in size and 60 mins in length. This website serves as an excellent portal to share your content with people all over the world, with 112 million visitors per month.

Though Dailymotion has its own collection of dos and don'ts, the rules on copyright are not as scary as YouTube. So, for content uploaders, there is more versatility and higher tolerance, but this benefit often has consequences.
There is also a possibility for the content to be monetized through ads or a paywall. So viewers may expect those videos to see advertisements when other videos are totally ad-free.

Why use Dailymotion?

  • High-quality content
  • The layout of the website being similar to YouTube makes it easier to use
  • Lax rules with fewer risks of content removal

2. TikTok

Believe it or not, but one of the biggest YouTube rivals you will find in 2020 is TikTok. This Chinese video-sharing site, in reality, is a tough battle. The key explanation is the raw style of video and low-cost production that motivates ordinary individuals to make videos in the comfort of their homes.

In reality, several celebrities have begun using TikTok to promote their work and communicate with fans as a forum. It comes with built-in video editors in its Android and iOS apps, making the buttery production of content smooth. There are also numerous third-party applications that can be uploaded directly to TikTok, including Adobe Premiere Rush, PicsArt, and Fuse.

Users can upload vertical (horizontal supported) videos of up to 15 seconds in length and 1080-1920 (9:16) max measurements. The video size can go up to 287.6 MB for iOS, and it's limited to 72 MB for Android.

Why use TikTok?

  • Cheap production
  • Great for mindless binge-watching
  • Relaxed policies regarding content upload

3. Vimeo

For artists and classy cinematographers, Vimeo is one of the best video hosting sites. This forum allows professionals to show off their work in fields such as music, dance, cinematography, photography, etc.
But you might have to look somewhere else if you want to see some random cat and dog videos. But Vimeo is your go-to place if classic short videos, experimental music clips, or fascinating snapshots are your thing.

This site has strict content upload guidelines as it hosts high-quality content where 4 K Ultra HD visuals with HDR can also be enjoyed. Its ad-free model is the best thing about Vimeo. It is funded by the contributions made by users and a paywall for certain videos.

As far as the cons are concerned, for content creators, its 500 MB weekly upload cap can be frustrating. While there is an option to upgrade this cap to 5 GB, given that you are paying for it, it is too little.

Why use Vimeo?

  • Neat interface with well-defined categories for easy search
  • Reliable YouTube alternative for hosting your videos online
  • More focus on video and less distracting elements in the background for a better viewing experience

4. Metacafe

And before YouTube went online, one of the oldest video streaming sites, Metacafe, started in 2003. This website specializes in short-form video content with an emphasis on short 90-second clips, providing its subscribers with fast and lighthearted videos.
For better browsing, Metacafe's minimal GUI has neatly classified sections and caters to around 40 million viewers. However, this platform isn't for you if you are searching for professionally made videos or a complex subject.

With crafty thumbnails and names, it has more clickbaity content, but for someone who likes spending time on short humorous clips created by frequent users, Metacafe is the best option for them from YouTube.

Why use Metacafe?

  • Excellent site for enjoying short 90 second videos
  • Offers quick and to-the-point product reviews, how-to guides and funny content


YouTube has a new Facebook competitor at home. With a twist, Instagram TV is a perfect alternative to YouTube. This new video platform provides vertical, long-form videos created exclusively for viewing on smartphones.
Please note that only through the app can you browse videos; however, it is permitted to upload videos through the desktop. IGTV automatically gives you videos shared by creators you follow if you already have an Instagram account.
To view their content, you can also follow other channels or just browse through a feed that includes curated content based on your interests. Instagram TV is one of the best channels for presenting your motion content to a wider audience without investing much as a content creator. Check out our hands-on IGTV guide for tips on how to use the app if you are new to Instagram.

Why use IGTV?

  • For watching videos on a smartphone
  • More short-form videos with a maximum limit of up to 1 hr.

6. DTube

The latest fad in the tech town is Blockchain, and a new video network, DTube, has emerged based on this technology. A strong alternative to YouTube is this decentralized platform. In reality, when searching for sites like YouTube, a genuinely near comes because its user interface looks very similar.

The hot, trending, and watched videos on the homepage can be browsed. There is also an option to save videos to watch later and via trending tags to check out viral content.
The best aspect is the ad-free DTube. To preserve records, it utilizes the Steem blockchain, and users do not have to make initial deposits or incur any transaction fees.
Uploading a video on DTube actually rewards you for seven days with Steem's crypto-currency rewards. In addition, there is also a chance of winning money for users who leave feedback on the videos.

Why use DTube?

  • Ad-free website which gives you an uninterrupted viewing experience
  • Blockchain-based platform with a chance of earning crypto-currency

7. Veoh

Veoh is a name you can bump into as you browse on the web for more websites like YouTube. A video streaming website that allows you to quickly find, watch, and customize your viewing experience online.
If you enjoy watching longer videos, Veoh can be a good choice as it enables users to upload and share unlimited length videos. On this web, one can find many movies , TV series, and even anime.

Veoh makes a strong YouTube alternative with a clean user interface and many social networking features, such as adding contacts, forming communities, and direct messaging.

Why use Veoh?

  • Recommended for long-form videos and movies

8. Internet Archive’s Video Section

This website contains just as it says-an archive with a lot of material stored therein. In the videos section of the Internet Archive, you can find a surprising selection, from documentaries to TV series and movies.

By setting filters for the year, language, topic & subjects, you can sort the content. By exploring, one can find those videos on other sites that are difficult to come by. Even, by uploading content for free, everyone can add to the archive.

Why use the Internet Archive?

  • A vast collection of old documentaries, TV series, movies

9. 9Gag TV

If you are looking for a website for video sharing that would give you pure entertainment, then your go-to place is 9GagTV. This portal, which provides an infinite supply of entertainment in the form of GIFs, photos, and memes, is already familiar to Facebook and Twitter users.
Just like YouTube, it also hosts a huge collection of funny videos, movie trailers, and engaging content. Via its 'WOW' and 'WTF' portion, which has entertaining content hosted on it, you can explore, but some of them might be NSFW.

Why use 9GagTV?

  • An endless supply of entertaining visual content

10. The Open Video Project

Launched in 1998, The Open Video Project is a multimedia archive that has about 195 segments of video. It is a digitized video content archive that has many documentaries, educational and history-related content on it.

By setting filters for a specific time period, sound and format, you can choose from the available material. U.S. government entities have mostly contributed to a large portion of the videos on this website.

Why use The Open Video Project?

  • Best YouTube alternative for finding educational documentaries

11. Facebook’s Search Option

To find friends, communities, or pages of interest, we usually use Facebook's search bar. But much more is provided by the social platform than that. In reality, when you actually use this search option to find videos, you will be amazed at the results.
In my view, when it comes to searching for some successful YouTube alternatives, Facebook's search choice is very underestimated. As diverse as YouTube's, the array of visual material provided by the social media network. Whether it's tutorials, reviews, music videos, funny clips, you name it, all is provided by Facebook.

So, just type in the search bar for something you're searching for and then pick the videos tab on the search result page. In one location, you can find all the appropriate videos for the keyword searched for.
The only missing feature is that to narrow down your search, you don't get too many filters, but you can sort the videos by year and sources. Another drawback is that you must have an FB account to use this option.

Why use Facebook Search?

  • A wide variety of videos in one place compared to some of the websites on this list.
  • Quick results displaying relevant content

12. PeerTube

PeerTube is an open-source video sharing site that will be a successful alternative to YouTube in 2019. Like BitTorrent, it is a Peer-to - Peer (P2P) software that is decentralized, where everyone can host videos on their own. The interface is simple, clean, and does not contain advertisements. It includes a segment on Trending and Recently Added, where you can discover new videos.
The best thing about PeerTube is that it overcomes YouTube restrictions, such as being blocked or censored. Therefore, it helps developers to very conveniently display their content around the world without the possibility of being censored. As PeerTube is relatively new, it does not have a diverse video set. Nevertheless, as a rival, it provides an appreciable service.

Why use PeerTube?

  • Open sourced and decentralized
  • No signup required and lax terms & conditions
