Is YouTube Killing the Small Author?

Well, after the "surprise" that YouTube has prepared for the crypto Youtubers last Christmas, the dust is slowly settling down... Anyways, not everyone is running back into the YT hug... When something bad happens, people tend to search for a solution to the new situation...

And, that is not a bad thing... I know the feeling when you are in one place for some time, and you are used to it, etc... I had a similar experience with the Google Adsense program... Back in the days, when they have started, it was an awesome platform, but then they have competition in a lot of other companies... And then started slowly killing them by giving better PTC to publishers...

And, it's always the same scenario in business... If you are big enough, you dump the prices (or give more profits to your clients), kill the competition, and after 2-3 years when you are the only one, you pay breadcrumbs to your clients, because they don't have another place to go...

This time, some of the YouTubers were forced to look to alternatives for their content and some of them found it... As YouTube is currently paying a misery to creators, other blockchain platforms can offer a lot more, respecting authors and help them grow... That you can't see on YouTube at the moment

I have mentioned only two of these alternatives in the video, but there are a lot more out there...

Check out and LBRY
