Sell your content on Lbry.png

For me Hive is the most promising blockchain project out there but I would rank Lbry second.

What is Lbry

I've been on Lbry for a couple of weeks. Lbry is a blockchain based video platform where you can also host audio files, images, vectors, texts or pdfs. You can store your files on Lbry and if people like your content, they can give you tips in LBC, the currency of the platform. You can then use this LBC to stake on your content to bring it higher in the internal search engine.

New on Lbry: sell your digital products

It was possible to sell your videos or other files already before but it was necessary that the buyer installed the app. This didn't make much sense. Why install an app, when you have everything on the website already. Now it is possible to sell your content directly on the website, the app is not needed anymore. You can define the price of your product and people can buy it using LBC.

Everybody can create his own products and sell them

If you publish an ebook on Amazon, you will have to pay amazon up to 30% on your sales. On lbry, you will keep 100% of it. You can create a video and sell it. It's even possible to sell an audio mp3 or an ebook. With this feature, it has become really easy to sell stuff. Imagine all the advantages:

  • No need to deal with security issues linked to credit card transactions
  • Organic traffic through the
  • Integrated community
  • You can present your paid content to all your followers
  • No costs for sales
  • No 3rd party that could annoy you
  • Possibility to make microsales with a very cheap product
  • Very easy to do. Just upload, write description, define your price and that's it!

This paid content feature has been implemented very recently and not everything works perfectly but it's a start and I think it's great.

I will have to look into this.

I believe it's worth a try and it can complement our activity on Hive. Thanks for your comment!

After Steemleo Shop and their market for digital content it is nice to see one more digital crypto-marketplace... Which is a great chance for affiliate marketers... ;)

Yes, it is still buggy and undeveloped enough (both of them), but it is the first step and it should be supported...

Thanks for sharing this news with us!

Thanks a lot for your comment! I believe that every step in this direction makes it easier for all of us to sell things online.

When a marketplace comes with an integrated wallet and a community, a lot can happen. Now I just need a product to sell ;-)

I have no doubts that you will have something to offer... ;)

Happy selling!

Nice post. Can i sell what i post on hive on lbry?

It's possible to save your post as .md file and upload it to lbry but if you put it for free on Hive I wouldn't suggest to put it for sale on lbry ;-)

Thanks ...

Is the token trading anywhere?

Yes, it is trading on Bittrex... One of the most popular exchanges where you can also find HIVE... (search for LBC)

Okay tnx

Thanks for the tip!

Hi friend, thanks for the information, it seems like a good option, the alternatives for monetizing content are expanded. This is the future.

Thank you!

Hi my friend,

This is indeed an additional way to monetize our content. Thanks for stopping by!
