Currently, in order to distribute your original digital content, creators have to give large amounts of their profits to the website that hosts them–YouTube alone takes 45% of the revenue from digital content. The solution? A YouTube without Google. LBRY is a decentralized, open-source protocol that facilitates the discovery, distribution, and purchase of digital content, where 100% of the revenue goes back to content creators. In less than a year since it was founded, LBRY has thousands of creators, and hundreds of thousands of users, and are working to create a user-driven community with content from Hollywood movies to PDFs, and everything in between. Tokens allow users to purchase content, and creators to reserve space in the content catalog.
