(Natural News) With YouTube’s censorship of pro-liberty voices accelerating by the day, video free speech site Brighteon 2.0 is about to launch with new features, a new user interface and improve resistance against internet censorship.

Brighteon.com launched in July, 2018 as a free speech platform. Originally named “Real.video,” the name was changed to Brighteon.com after resolving an intellectual property dispute with Real Networks, which threatened to go to court to confiscate the domain name.

Over the last year, Brighteon has faced extreme censorship efforts by upstream infrastructure providers, forcing Brighteon to remove, for example, all videos depicting the New Zealand mosque shooting. By the time that took place, we were already working hard on a massive platform re-work, building our own infrastructure that would move videos off upstream tech platforms and help insulate the network from future censorship attacks.

Now, Brighteon 2.0 is just a week (or so) away. Nearly all existing videos are automatically moved to Brighteon 2.0 with no effort required on the part of users. All the video embed code and URLs will continue to work as before.

Brighteon 2.0 offers several new advantages:

  • The video platform is still free for all users, and our new infrastructure is dramatically less expensive for us to operate in terms of monthly storage costs, making the video network financially sustainable to operate.
  • A new user interface offers greatly improved reporting on video views, easier controls for video playlists and many other features.
  • Videos that were previously banned can be re-uploaded under the new system. There are still some restrictions, of course, such as no porn, no murder videos, snuff videos, illegal videos, bomb-making videos and so on.
  • Categories of videos that were previously not welcomed on the platform (such as video game footage videos) will be welcomed under Brighteon 2.0 due to our dramatically reduced operating costs.
  • While still not 100% immune to censorship, Brighteon 2.0 is far more resilient against infrastructure providers that might attempt to take the platform offline. More steps are being taken throughout 2019 to make the platform even more resistant to organized censorship efforts.

More features are being added this year, too…

Brighteon to add user logins, channel subscriptions and instant messaging features

Now that our infrastructure changes are nearly complete, the Brighteon R&D team will be focusing on new features to make the site more convenient for end users and content creators alike:

  • User logins and subscriptions so that users can follow all the new videos for any channel they like.
  • Instant messaging functionality so that channel owners can post messages to their followers, in addition to posting videos.
  • NO SHADOWBANNING whatsoever. When users follow a channel, they get everything from that channel, including text messages and videos. Users can choose to un-follow a channel at any time, if they wish.
  • Video categories will be implemented on the home page so that end users can surf to the types of videos they want to see the most: Health and nutrition, science and tech, politics and culture, comedy and satire, etc.
  • We are currently talking with SubscribeStar about adding SubscribeStar donations to the Brighteon interface so that content creators can display links for donations or funding via SubscribeStar.

Join now (it’s free) at Brighteon.com. All the new features are being rolled out next week. As always, expect a few glitches during the rollout period.

About the author: Mike Adams (aka the “Health Ranger“) is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called “Food Forensics“), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics. Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.

Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.

The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed “strange fibers” found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health “gurus,” dangerous “detox” products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over fifteen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
