LBRY is a new online platform for publishing and sharing content, but with a big difference: it has “no middlemen, no advertisers, and no censorship.” Through the miracle of blockchain, it will not be owned or controlled in the usual centralized sense but on a decentralized basis much like Bitcoin. The lack of censorship should make it popular with libertarian publishers, as YouTube has a history of blocking “controversial” political content. Per the website, “YouTube, Netflix, Apple TV, and other similar services are centralized platforms controlled by a single corporate entity. These companies can change the rules unilaterally, as well as censor content to appease authoritarian governments or corporate partners. LBRY is a decentralized, open-source protocol that is controlled by its users…[that] can never unilaterally change the rules on publishers or consumers, making it dramatically trustworthy.” If you are a publisher, you can earn $1,000 by signing up now. Otherwise, the service is still in “invitation only” mode, but you can get on a waitlist here.
