Spotify's Greenroom Vs. Clubhouse - Missing Text Chat and Other Impacts

Greenroom spam clubs inside Clubhouse
We have Clubhouse clones from Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and now Spotify. Unlike others, Spotify seems to target directly into the Clubhouse audience/members. It is extremely obvious inside Clubhouse as you can find many spammy clubs and rooms created to attract the Clubhouse users.

Greenroom Vs. Clubhouse

I was stumbled upon one such room Clubhouse influencers are jumping off to Greenroom? - All things Hollywood. Few takeaways from the room are:

  1. Text chat is not available in Clubhouse, whereas it is available in Greenroom. This is the most talked-about USP.
  2. The recording feature is not available in Clubhouse and the same is available in Greenroom.
  3. Spotify has opened up a creator fund for Greenroom creators in the USA. However, I think, there are better indirect monetization options available for Clubhouse users.

Stream's chat component & million-dollar opportunity?

As I tweeted, Clubhouse can quickly bring the text chat feature by using Stream's chat component. If they do so, it is a huge opportunity for the Stream!

What if the Stream misses the opportunity?

As I strongly believe that Clubhouse will implement the text chat feature sooner than later, it may choose any chat components to speed up the development. In case, if they don't choose the popular chat component--namely Stream, they may pick up Stream's competitors.

The common problem most of the people pointed out are that it scales for Those who have accessed their source code can understand that they've done lot of things and also the site is not database-intensive. You should really create a real database-intensive website to understand what I mean. The other point that been pointed out is about open source and community. Lot of people may not be knowing that it's 2 people pushing it and don't want others to be credited . The generic model or dynamic model idea was originally been from grigri and Marcel . It's hard to be called as open source as only few and sycophants are driving it's direction (I'm not talking about svn access) So, here are my humble checklist before you start shouting at me Did you read a

Technology prediction for 2018

Bubbles of bitcoin, blockchain, machine learning, deep learning, artificial intelligence and more People usually appreciate me for my predictions on technologies. As I already noted our team will quickly hit the edge case for any use cases and that's supposed to be the reason for my better prediction rate. And so, here are my predictions… Bitcoin bubble When Bitcoin became talk of the town/industry, I informed my boss and colleagues that I find no real use case for this digital currency--except in underground markets like drugs, etc. In fiat currencies, there is at least a way to take legal route, in case, if you've transferred the money and not received the goods. But, in Bitcoin, this is not possible at all as it is not a legal currency. So, if there is no trust, the chances that other person can cheat you by not sending the goods and or not transferring bitcoins after receiving goods. My stand above vindicated by the article Ten years in, nobody has come up with a
