The LBRY Protocol With Alex Grintsvayg

The LBRY Protocol With Alex Grintsvayg

By Scott Cunningham | Crypto & Things | 23 Apr 2021


If you’ve ever wanted to know more about the technology behind LBRY, then check out this interview I did with the LBRY ETO & cofounder Alex Grintsvayg who is in charge of the tech side of things there.

Some people know it as LBRY, others as Odysee, and now they have a new parent company: Lab From Mars. Whichever interface you use, you are offered an amazing blockchain solution to video hosting backed by their native cryptocurrency: LBC. LBC or library credits allow users to support their videos and stake their content on the network.

LBRY has been one of my most favorite decentralized platforms and I highly recommend it. However, they are dealing with an 11-million-dollar lawsuit from the SEC that is completely unfounded in my opinion. You can sign the petition to save LBRY here: https://helplbrysavecrypto.com/

 

These are some of the questions we went over:

  • Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
  • How and when did you originally get into cryptocurrency
  • Can you give us a brief introduction to LBRY?
  • What problem does LBRY solve?
  • How are you guys growing the LBRY community and how can people get involved and makes proposals? Can you speak to the LBRY fund?
  • How did LBRY get its name and what was the original idea or motivation to start it?
  • What are the next big updates for LBRY to release soon or that are in the works?
  • Where does LBRY fit in with other existing similar projects?
  • Where do you see LBRY going in the next year? The next 5 years?
  • So where can everyone go to learn more about this?
