What is LBRY?

A Free Market of Digital Files.

Share or Sell Anything – With Anyone – Earn your Living.

LBRY, pronounced ‘Library’ is a new and freer internet protocol.

Out with the old, and in with the new – The LBRY is waiting for you to discover what is in the shelves of the soon-to-be biggest & most secure digital library on earth.

Share or sell your videos, images, books or any digital file.

For all content creators – Photographers, video creators, book-authors, 3d-modelers, designers, application developers. You may sell your content, and you decide everything about your content. The choice is yours.

A network owned by the community – Owned by you.

You own your publications and you own your money. It is designed to be censorship-resistant, so no centralized company can take control.

Speak and publish freely – In the name of freedom.

How is that possible? Mix Bitcoin and Blockchain with a custom tailored content distribution protocol, and you will get LBRY.

* – A Freer Internet that Cannot be Censored: Yes, it is true that nothing can be removed on the protocol layer, but on application layer illegal content will be blocked. Using LBRY is legal, unless you publish illegal material which can get you prosecuted.
