Hi DSound tribe! :)

Probably you already heard about DSound somewhere between here and Steem... but if not you'll get to know about it just now!

What is DSound?

DSound is a decentralized web application, developed in Javascript and React, that allows anyone to upload, listen and discover music and other sounds stored on top of the IPFS Network. It uses STEEM blockchain as a persistent database, and will be expanding to Whaleshares and Bitshares soon, so by posting the sounds the authors can earn rewards in cryptocurrency, when other users like their content, which can be exchanged easily to US Dollars, Euros or any other currency, with a look and feel very similar to Soundcloud.

Check DSound Intro post for more details

DSound is this! <3

DSound Discord Server (the tribe is connected)

If you're learning about DSound now or you didn't connect yet, please join our Discord server at:


There you'll find a few channels to have everybody from our community getting together and making DSound even better.

We invested a significant effort in organizing this community server and now we have rules, a set of channels where people have great chats, or support help and suggestion of features... Thanks to all participants!

Thanks also to our moderators who have done a great job in keeping this a great place to hang out! Also check their work on DSound since they are content creators as well:


DSound Witness Proposal

I came from Steem and I already feel like home here. I found out that so many interesting people are already here and I like this blockchains idea so much, that in this little time I got to wrap my head around it I am already very enthusiastic about the ecosystem and want to integrate DSound with Whaleshares as well too.

I want my journey on the Blockchain to be worth it and use this opportunity to leave my mark on this wonderful community by bringing more innovative and fun projects for everybody to enjoy, while helping Whaleshares to grow and be more valuable for all of us.


I comment, curate, and actually read/view/watch/listen to great content our fellows post everyday. I also participate and help users on Discord.

I post. Not much but I want to post more. And being a musician and music producer I want to use my DSound to publish my music, as well as my DJ sets, live or from my studio, to all of you.

I want to create more dapps, and I want to make DSound one of the success cases of this ecosystem, among other great projects, by integrating Whaleshares and Bitshares in it too, to bring more value to our community as well.

Why DSound offers to be a Witness?

I have my @prc witness in Steem for near one year, but I will also change it to @dsound soon. I am not a very political guy and I think that the name @dsound will bring more people to get interest and vote for my witness.

Also, I have around 30 years of experience as a software developer, from C/C++ all the way to JavaScript, I've used all the languages, and most important I have more than 20 years of server management and my own datacenter in Portugal. With these characteristics added by the true enthusiasm I feel by this community, I couldn't resist to offer more to all of you and get more involved in this awesome experience!

Being a witness is not only technical. It mostly is a community leadership and support activity which I believe I can perform by helping it grow to Portuguese speaking communities and bring more and more people to the ecosystem, by spreading the word and by developing other niche communities over Whaleshares, like music lovers and many more. I want to make it huge and bring all of us together around it! This is the responsibility I am assuming before you all...

Technical Infrastructure

I've put together a set of dedicated server boxes for this project that I know will prove well and deliver stable performance to the Whaleshares blockchain. All boxes are behind firewalls, IDS and power redundancy systems. The server characteristics are subject to upgrade or revision as needed.

Why I want your approval vote?

I want your vote, XS, S, M, L, or XL, if you trust me and approve what I do in Steem and now also on Whaleshares ecosystem. My involvement with the community will continue to grow and many other projects will join after DSound, as I am constantly with new ideas. I want to witness Whaleshares growth and success, so count on me to help make it happen! :)

Thanks a lot to all fellow members of DSound tribe, all whaleshares members, developers and music addicts like me for your support and encouragement on this project! Without you I wouldn't be here assuming this responsibility. Big thanks to all of you!

Peace! :)
