Decentralized censorship-resistant video will transform our society.-3.36

Imagine two very different technology futures. In one, we continue on the same path of centralized video delivery platforms — a world where video is stored, transcoded, and distributed from mammoth data centers owned by Facebook, Amazon, and Google. Or another, where video is distributed across a network of decentralized nodes — a world where video (information) is not under the mercy of some single authority.

The primary purpose behind this article — other than to present these two different futures — is to guide those readers unfamiliar with a new blockchain protocol, called Livepeer, on a technical journey from moment of video capture to final delivery on someone’s screen.
