Tech Update - April 2019

This is a tech update on , the YouTube alternative video platform that dares to respect free speech. If you've been following Brighteon news, you may already know that the video platform was threatened with being de-platformed by upstream infrastructure providers in the aftermath of the New Zealand mass shooting (which was, of course, engineered to set off a global religious war against Christians as we've now seen with the Sri Lanka bombings, but that's another story altogether).

Because of the extreme censorship threats against Brighteon, we were forced to delete videos that showed footage from the Christchurch shootings. Otherwise, the entire video platform was going to be annihilated and we would have lost the ability to host any videos at all. Even now, some ISPs in Australia and New Zealand have completely banned all videos from Brighteon.

Even as that was happening, we were already well into the R&D effort to rebuild our platform to make it more resistant to censorship threats. I'm happy to report that we are now approaching the completion of that effort, and the rolling out of Brighteon 2.0 is scheduled to take place in early June.
