DotPlay compression utilizes blockchain to give digital ownership and control over files that are shared across the blockchain. DotPlay compression is able to compress any files to a very small fraction of its initial size. For example if you have a video that weighs 20gb you can transfer and compress it with DotPlay and it will become say 20kb a very small file that can be easily and quickly transferred peer 2 peer.

An example of the DotPlay compression software is seen in the video above - the DotPlay employee demonstrates how you can enable certain restrictions on the file such as how many times it can be opened and for how long or which segment of the video can be viewed. Functionality such as this is made possible through blockchain connectivity. The 9mb file was reduced to 472kb in 10 seconds.


The next stop in the video is an interview with the Co-FOunder of eToro - a platform that allows investors to copy the trades of other investors and essentially put there portfolio on auto pilot. If you find an investor that you think has a proven track record that you think to yourself 'hey, I wish I could trade like that person or company' this is exactly what eToro does.
