I had the opportunity to chat with Jeremy Kauffman who is the founder and CEO of the decentralized video hosting platform LBRY. But LBRY is much more than just that, it’s a secure, open, and community-run digital marketplace where you can enjoy the latest content from your favorite creators—as a user, not a product.
You can actually consume content that exists on many different people’s computers with true peer to peer blockchain-enabled video hosting.
These are the questions I asked him:
- Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? - 0:24
- How busy are you now / How does your day look? - 1:18

- Do you see there being a big resistance point for people who don't want to download something? - 14:30 - Short answer: They just launched a website
- Where do you see LBRY project going in the next year? The next 5 years? - 17:43
- What is the current userbase size and how well is the project growing? - 20:37
