I'm seeing folly all over the startup and tech landscape. The Yuser app wants to be the next Facebook - with the added wrinkle that users get blockchain coin for eyeball grabbing content and no advertising. And now PeerTube promises to break YouTubes' grip on video.
Sorry PeerTube, I don't think it will happen. You are just a new Napster, and we all know what happened to Napster. Sorry Yuser, the cost of policing your platform will eat you alive.
The bottom line is that PeerTube and Yuser have the same fundamental problem: user generated content with next to zero policing. Both are designed with little to no oversight built in. Because of this, all of the worst of humanity will spill into these communities. They will become cesspools of trash.
I see a new security paradigm coming. Yes we worry about DDoS attacks and fishing. And the new security frontier is security from the nastiness of humanity. PeerTube and Yuser will either have to spend tons of money securing their user generated footprints or be relegated the the corners of the internet where porn, terrorism, human trafficking, arms sales, and NeoNazi's find refuge.
Have they never heard of 4chan?
