About Livepeer

Livepeer is the video layer of the web3 stack. It processes millions of minutes of video a week to applications in production every week. As a blockchain-based protocol that has been live on Ethereum since 2018, the Livepeer Protocol is one of the first web3 networks to deliver real-world value to an existing multi-billion dollar industry. It achieves this through an open-source, blockchain coordinated, p2p network of hardware operators running infrastructure processing video around the world.
