You DO NOT need to purchase content, just earn some coin by confirming your registration and watching videos. It's a no brainer
The best competitor to YouTube. If you like Linux and crypto, then you'll wanna support this platform! It's free to use, no ads, no censorship, and no demonetization!!!
Fantastic platform. It works great, it is independent and decentralized, because it is based on blockchain. The interface is clean and easy to use. I watch Bryan Lunduke's and Gardiner Bryant's videos only on LBRY. It is true that you have to pay the LBC, their own crypto-currency, to publish your videos, but don't worry about it - from the very beginning you get the LBC every step of the way - for watching movies, subscribing to channels, updating your app. And later your viewers start sending you LBC-tips. The LBC is no problem at all.
This thing actually requires you to pay with LBC in order to upload your own content. This is pretty much a suicide for this service.
