- Level: Seed
- OurTube is an open source video sharing application (YouTube Clone) built on top of Polygon blockchain. Since OurTube is a decentralized application, users own their content and everything is stored on a IPFS (The goal is move to arweave in future). OurTube is using The Graph for indexing, searching and filtering the videos. For now, OurTube supports video files but I am planning to add audio functionality, where users can upload mp3 files and songs too. The dApp is currently on its very early stage, but soon I’m planning to deploy it on mainnet.

OurTube is a decentralized YouTube clone and our main goal is allow content creators own their videos and content. Our goal is too make the platform gasless and pay for the storage so users can upload as many videos they want. We aim to use radicle protocols and believe that our missions are very aligned.
P.S: Also, this grant will be used to make the applications gasless and use the some of the amount for arweave storage
