How video mining works

Run a node on the Livepeer network that advertises the price it will charge for video transcoding. Continue your cryptocurrency mining with your GPUs.

When video encoding jobs come your way, the Livepeer node routes the tasks to your GPUs, and the encoding leverages a different part of the GPUs than the mining, so the mining can also continue with minimal hashrate loss. No opportunity cost!

The Numbers

The capacity on Livepeer's network represents access to 70,000+ GPUs, or enough to encode all the realtime video streaming through Twitch, Facebook, and Youtube combined.
