  • Crypto, Crypto, Crypt0!

    A rising tide lifts all ships, and while LBRY continues to gain momentum and credibility, why not take a few more cryptocoins with us?

    Crypt0 has covered Ethereum and other alt-coins for the better part of a year. He has a near-daily crypto vlog with insightful, balanced coverage of Ethereum, Monero, Bitcoin and more.

    Crypt0 joins Chris Coney’s Cryptoverse and Trevon James as the third show with wall-to-wall cryptocurrency coverage, right here on LBRY.

  • WANTED: Open Libraries

    It always bears repeating around here: LBRY’s destiny is nothing short of the most reliable and rich library on earth... despite the illegible abbreviation “LBRY.”

    To expedite the process, we have an open bounty for the world’s free and digitized libraries in order to aggregate them onto one big (decentralized) shelf: LBRY’s network of gracious content hosts.

    One pierre1024, a member of the LBRY Slack community, has claimed quite a big fish…

    Project Gutenberg is an open project that has digitized 54,000 free pdf, epub and Kindle books.

    Hundreds of historical archives are now available on LBRY, including:

    • The Economic Consequences of the Peace by Keynes
    • A Soldier's Sketches Under Fire by Harold Harvey
    • Journal of a Voyage to Brazil by Callcott
    • How Jerusalem Was Won by W. T. Massey
    • Political Thought in England from Locke to Bentham

    The project was started by the late Michael Hart in 1971 with the digitization of the US Declaration of Independence. Make a donation to Project Gutenberg here, and enjoy thousands of books now available on LBRY.

  • Filthy Casual

    Gaming. It’s arguably more important than getting adequate nutrition.

    So, we’re adding it to the LBRY menu.

    TV, movies, and even funny videos have been around for decades--even before the internet. But from rose a new genre: the streamer. And it has changed the landscape of internet content forever. Now, everyone can sit on your couch as you wreck noobs.

    We welcome LBRY’s first game streamer, Oh Gee Geo.

    There’s only one problem: he’s not a Genji main. He’s not going to rush your base. He can’t 360 no scope. He needs you, young padawan, to teach him your ways!

    Oh Gee Geo

    Oh Gee Geo

    When I saw LBRY I immediately saw the potential for the democratization of content distribution… Content creators are empowered to set their own market for their content. -OhGeeGeo

    Join OhGeeGeo as he streams RTS and MOBAs while learning from the young guns how to really play the hottest new games.

    Games so hot, his rig overheats because it can’t run them.

    I (Reilly) will also be doing a new stream with OhGeeGeo as he learns to master Rocket League starting mid-March!

  • We're on the Verge of Complete Cryptocurrency Deregulation

    Is New Hampshire the best place to run a cryptocurrency business? It already has the highest per-capita Bitcoin usage. And very soon it is likely to have the most favorable regulatory climate.

    While states like Hawaii are passing bills so onerousHouse Bill 436 exempts virtual currencies from all state regulation. Just minutes ago, it passed the New Hampshire statehouse, 185-170.

    LBRY is thrilled to have been a part of this process. As the governor-appointed industry expert on virtual currencies, I'm glad I finally had the chance to give back to a technology that has given so much to me.

    However, most of the credit goes to Represenatives Barbara BiggieKeith Ammon, who introduced the bill, as well as Representative John HuntChamber of Digital Commerce gave us invaluable advice and advocated heavily on behalf of the bill.

    The battle is not over! If you support this effort, please let the governor know and give thanks to the hard work of those mentioned above.

  • Censored Gaming Play No Evil

    One of the pillars of LBRY, and in fact cryptocurrencies on the whole, is censorship resistance.

    Censorship is a problem to varying degrees in all media. LBRY seeks to minimize institutional censorship through decentralization of publishing and empowering creators everywhere.

    One of the most interesting case studies of censorship is video games. From country to country, different cultures (or governments who enforce a particular culture) yield wildly different results for virtually identical content, depending on what is considered socially permissible.

    No channel covers this better than Censored Gaming.

    Censored Gaming

    Since the dawn of video games and interactive media, what people should and shouldn’t be able to do in a game has remained forever a hot button issue. From 16bit “boobs” measuring a hefty 3 pixels bra size, to the hot coffee mod scandal of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, to the different cultural interpretations of meaning between Japanese and American game translations, to the Red Cross owning the IP to pictures of red crosses... no pixel is left unturned in Dan and the Censored Gaming team’s pursuit of shining a light on censorship. Free your voice while being delightfully entertaining. Censored Gaming and LBRY are a match made in 1st Amendment heaven. Suppport Censored Gaming on Pateron right here: Not on LBRY yet?

    This got LBRY some positive press, including:

    As well as popular posts on Reddit, other news websites, and many regional and local publications.

  • LBRY (LBC) | Bless Hay Gaming- This Game of Yours

    There’s only one thing harder than a Dark Souls game: making a Dark Souls game.

    But with the renaissance in 16-bit and pixel art-style indie games, there’s grown a parallel renaissance in the feasibility of developing your own games as an individual or small team. Tools like GameMaker: Studio, Unity, and Unreal have proliferated to smaller development outfits in recent years.

    In the meantime, become the jack-of-all game dev trades at your own pace.

    Bless Hay Gaming is comprised of one Denmark native, Simon. Whether it’s programming, art design, or animation, Bless Hay shows you the basics of game development with a focus on 2D and sidescroller styles.

    Add your channel on LBRY with Simon using our YouTube-LBRY API sync tool here:

    Or better yet, develop your own game and become the first interactive title published on LBRY.
