Live video gives everyone a voice. To make sure you're always in control of yours, Livepeer is owned and run by the participants in the network. This paradigm empowers you to participate in the world economy, monetize your time, and get your truth out to the world. We are building Livepeer with these core values in mind:
No single company or individual can control the network. All participants have the ability to shape Livepeer.
Nodes are paid for providing capacity to the network using Livepeer Tokens (LPT) - the network's own dedicated crypto-currency.
Livepeer’s peer-to-peer network lets you stream what you want, when you want, without a single point of failure or censorship.
By joining the Livepeer network, you can share live video directly with your peers. If you'd like to earn Livepeer Tokens (LPT), take an active role in the network by running a Livepeer node. And if you're a developer, you can use Livepeer as a simple way to add peer-to-peer video streaming into your own Ðapps! Here are some ways to get started:
Livepeer is an open project that believes in open source code and creative contribution from people with diverse interests and skillsets. Hundreds of people have contributed ideas, code, designs, and time to Livepeer. Here are just a few of the faces from our chatroom:
