For anyone that’s new to blockchain and cryptocurrency, LBRY is basically more like a youtube + Bittorrent on the blockchain. The idea behind LBRY is to rescue content creators who don’t get the amount they deserve for their hard work as well as helping them secure their content on the immutable blockchain.
LBRY is a protocol for accessing and publishing digital content in a global, decentralized marketplace. LBRY uses a public blockchain to provide a single shared index of published content, as well as content discovery and payment.
Clients can use LBRY to publish, host, find, download, and pay for content — books, movies, music, or anything else that can be represented as a stream of bits. The protocol is permissionless and censorship-resistant, which means that participation is open to everyone and no one can unilaterally block or remove content.
LBRY has been in public use since June 2016. As of May 2020, over 3.3 million pieces of digital content have been published via the protocol. Millions of users access this content each month, downloading and uploading terabytes of data
