Welcome to the Stack CafeTM — Blockstack: The New Internet – A First For Podcast Players on The Decentralized Internet – DotPodCastPlayer
Just came across this today, and it looks like it was built and/or launched today, a decentralized podcast player. DotPodcastPlayer has launched a podcast player for podcasts that you can use with Blockstack and Blockstack’s Browser (for full functionality). According to DotPodCastPlayer (DPX), the player gives you the ability to search, subscribe and pay podcasters without being tracked or censored.
- is open source self-hosted platform
- allows you to quickly upload new episodes
- migrate an existing podcast while supporting all the new features of the DotPodcast protocol.
- provides a legacy RSS feed, so you can still serve traditional podcast clients and directories.
- And, deploy your own DPX site – if previously hosted – by using Docker and letting DotPodcast protocol look after the technical side
We have not tried it at this point but it all looks very promising and a big step toward the decentralization for the podcast space.
Here are some screenshots of DotPodCastPlayer
Here is an example of a subscription to Tales From the Crypt being used on DotPodcastPlayer. Both were developed by Marty Bent.

Blockstack is a new internet.
A new internet that is more powerful yet simpler to use.
A new internet that you can trust because it is designed to protect you.
A new internet that gives you control over fundamental things:
- your identity
- your data/information
- your privacy
- your security.
A new internet that provides you a portal/window into a new world of decentralized applications.
Blockstack makes the internet you use betterTM.
Go join Blockstack and take part in the journey into the new decentralized internet, The Blockstack WayTM.
Remember, you have to have the Blockstack Browser in order to take full advantage of the decentralized internet from Blockstack.
THE BLOCKSTACK BROWSER
Blockstack harnesses all of the power of the traditional internet and then adds the Blockstack Browser on top. The Blockstack Browser opens the window to a new internet, a decentralized internet that puts the power back in the hand of the users.
To begin your journey into the new decentralized internet designed by Blockstack, you will need to install the Blockstack Browser. The Blockstack Browser is your window/portal into the new decentralized internet for decentralized applications (dApps).
For help on installing and using the Blockstack Browser, please visit this link Getting started with the Blockstack Browser.
Now that you have the browser installed, visit the Blockstack Browser homepage and try out some of the active decentralized applications – e.g., investment portfolio management, messaging, word processing… More decentralized applications are being added as developed.

By using Blockstack you now can control how you use and interact with the internet instead of worrying about how the internet interacts with you and controls you. This is a big switch and a seminal tenet of the decentralized internet, dApps and the entire Blockstack design. Blockstack has designed a new internet (distributed, blockchain) that makes the internet you use better.
