Rumble’s stance against cancel culture and censorship appears to be paying off for the Free speech video platform.
According to Reclaimthenet, Canadian video-sharing platform Rumble has set new records in all key performance areas.
“In the first quarter of 2022, Rumble recorded a 22% increase in monthly active users (MAUs) compared to the last quarter of 2021, to an average of 41 million MAUs. In the month of March alone, Rumble had 44.3 million MAUs,” the outlet reports
“When you consider the limited capital Rumble has raised to date, I believe this kind of growth is unlike anything we’ve seen before,” said Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski. “Other technology companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars to achieve this amount of market share; Rumble has done it with a fraction of their capital.”
Much of Rumbles growth is contributed by Big Tech platforms and over reaching censorship because Rumble doesn’t censor legal speech. The company claims it is “immune to cancel culture” with its mission being to “restore the internet to its roots by making it free and open once again.”
During the first quarter of 2022 Rumble has seen a significant increase in user engagement. “Users watched an average of 10.5 billion minutes per month, a 23% increase from the last quarter of 2021. Creators uploaded an average of 6,158 hours of content per day, an 88% increase from the last quarter of 2021.” reported by Reclaim the Internet
The platform has taken a strong pro-freedom stance. Pavlovski made an offer to Joe Rogan on Twitter in February, offering the podcaster $100 million over four years to bring The Joe Rogan Experience to the platform.
This during the height of Joe Rogan’s controversy over allowing alternate, scientific viewpoints on COVID-19.
