This paper reviews FreeStream, a decentralized streaming application built on the Ethereum Blockchain. FreeStream allows content-creators to live stream to audiences all over the world while also serving as a video platform for organizations. Completely decentralized, it does not track any data and enables all users to stay anonymous when exchanging or uploading their data. FreeStream was built on the LivePeer framework, uses Unlock for securing content, and leverages Textile to allow users to upload their data to an IPFS platform. FreeStream’s goal is to advance blockchain’s mission by giving more power to content creators and users.
