Open Source Video Infrastructure Services, Built On The Ethereum Blockchain. For video engineers who need affordable, reliable video encoding, Livepeer leverages decentralization to enable use cases and business models that were never possible via proprietary, centralized cost structures. Livepeer is creating a scalable Platform as a Service for developers who want to add live or on-demand video to their project. We aim to increase reliability of video workflows while reducing the costs to scale them. To achieve this we are building p2p infrastructure that interacts through a marketplace secured by the Ethereum blockchain.
There are two options for earning passive income for holders of the token LPT. The first is to run a Infrastructure Node. The second delegation of tokens to a Node. Running a Infrastructure Node requires professional skills and special knowledge. For the average user, the best option is token delegation. Delegation is non-custodial, delegates cannot spend your LPT, and your stake is not at risk.
