Token Description & Project Background

Livepeer is an open-source infrastructure platform for decentralized video streaming that operates on the Ethereum blockchain.  

Powered by a decentralized network of token-holding node operators, Livepeer claims to support both traditional and Web3-based video streaming at costs up to 50 times less than competing cloud service providers.

Within the Livepeer ecosystem, ownership of a native digital asset, LPT, is required to perform work like transcoding and distributing video.

LPT is also used to facilitate governance across the protocol and is the means through which Liveepeer distributes tokenized rewards.

The protocol relies on a series of “orchestrators” to provide the decentralized bandwidth needed to provide video transcoding – a process which entails decoding, reformatting, and recoding files, as well as distribution services on the network.

Orchestrators are rewarded for their work with crypto or fiat-backed stablecoins, project documentation explained. Under this framework, delegators can stake their tokens towards high-performing orchestrators for a cut of their rewards.

Livepeer was founded in 2017 by Doug Petkanics (Co-Founder & CEO), Eric Tang (Co-Founder & CTO).

These include:  (i) volatility risk and liquidity risk, (ii) short history risk, (iii) demand risk, (iv) forking risk, (v) code defects, (vi) regulatory risk, (vii) electronic trading risk, and (viii) cyber security risk.
