Transcoder Campaign: Livepool.io - Public transcoding pool

Dear amazing Livepeer community,

My name is Nico, some of you might have seen me around on Discord as member of the livepeer core team. After the Streamflow launch I decided to start my own orchestrator campaign with a sole purpose: create the first public livepeer transcoder pool, Livepool !

While transcoding pools have been a topic of discussion for some time to lower the barrier of entry for many users, there are no concrete efforts underway. Therefore I plan to focus personal time and resources in making this a reality through an iterative approach.

The first steps have already been taken and the plan is to hack together an alpha version at ETHLondon 2020, for which I invite anyone in the community to join the effort !
