Announcements | July 8, 2016 By:

LBRY has announced the beta release of LBRY app.

LBRY is a decentralized content-sharing platform geared towards artists, filmmakers, writers, etc. who wish to retain full artistic, and financial, control over their work. This marks the first release of a functional app for the platform, in development for over a year.

“This is it! We’ve been building for over a year and now we’re going live with a user app and a new cryptocoin that is backed by a decentralized digital media marketplace. In plain English, if we did our jobs right, today is the shout in the wilderness that will trigger an avalanche,” said LBRY’s technology evangelist Mike Vine.

Beta users will be treated to watch premium films like ‘It’s A Disaster’, ‘Fight of the Century: Keynes vs. Hayek Rap Battle’ and can interact with the platform and generate income. After receiving the beta access, they can also begin mining new token – LBRY credits and more.
