Transcoder Campaign: Livepeer India 0x8909


#1

Welcome

This page is the hub of a campaign to connect Livepeer’s emerging blockchain-based infrastructure protocol to India.

This campaign is about including and empowering vast swathes of talented and motivated people to understand how to become part of helping make Livepeer successful, and also participating in the project’s financial story.

How you can support this campaign

You can support this campaign by bonding your Livepeer Tokens (LPT) to a Transcoding node running Livepeer’s software as part of the decentralised livestreaming platform.

Livepeer Tokens are the Ethereum-based crypto-currency to fund the creation of Livepeer’s protocol for decentralized livestreaming.

To do this, simply go to this link to Livepeer’s protocol explorer, click image and then image - then follow the process.

Don’t have Livepeer Tokens (LPT)?

If you don’t have Livepeer Tokens (LPT), there are a number of ways you can get them:

  • Help the project to distribute the LPT granted to the community

  • Run a transcoding Node yourself - copy me, by running a video transcoding node with Livepeer’s software, and start a campaign for people to bond to you

  • Developers - can contribute code and earn a gitcoin bounty of LPT (more details to follow)

  • Eth holders can participate in the alpha launch and claim their share of the 6.3m Livepeer Tokens (LPT) released to anyone with > 0.1 ETH at block 5,264,265 of Ethereum’s blockchain.

  • Find other LPT holders - ask them how to get some LPT. They usually hang out in Livepeer’s Discord server.

In case you can’t make it to ETHIndia hackathon, here’s the footage from the livestream from Day 1 of the event.

The team on-the-ground had a few challenges with sound and video for the livestream - but hopefully this video can reflect some of the energy and spirit at the event.

This features talks from Kayvon Tehranian, Nadav Hollander, Sean Brennan, Dr. Michael Egorov, Andy Tudhope, Jack Platts, Arjun Bhuptani, Aparna Krishnan, Vii Sundaram and Arthur Falls.

Here is an announcement:

Livepeer India 0x8909 will be temporarily de-activating its Transcoding node as of Round 1077.

This is because the node was unable to amass sufficient stake to enter the active set of 15 Transcoders. As such, this node was not receiving any of the “Inflationary Rewards” distributed by the protocol.

Instead, the node will BOND its stake to one of the Active nodes, in order to receive a share of the inflationary rewards.

During this time, the node is unable to accept any additional stake being bonded to it.

Further updates regarding the node’s activities to generate funds for Livepeer community in India will be posted here.
