Uptrennd Forms Strategic Integration with LBRY

New social media platform aims to empower content creators in a fairer way

Visionary social media platform Uptrennd (www.uptrennd.com), created with the purpose of empowering people to take back control of their content, data, and means of expression, has taken the next step in building a more autonomous, online space for people to engage by joining forces with LBRY, the world’s first decentralized user-controlled video, music, and digital platform.

Built on four foundational pillars: Freedom of Expression, Data Privacy, Equality of Opportunity, and Distribution of Wealth, Uptrennd’s vast online community empowers users to express themselves, build global connections, and be properly compensated for the content they share on the platform. A wider range of influencers and content creators like bloggers, photographers, videographers, musicians, podcasters, and more, are now able to monetize their passion and thrive online like never before.

Now, Uptrennd is beginning its integration with LBRY, a revolutionary publishing technology that leaves creators in control of their IP. The network already hosts more than 5,000,000 videos, from more than 100,000 creators, including many top ex-YouTubers. By leveraging this integration, Uptrennd members will enjoy a more seamless user experience that enables them to upload and share multimedia content to their posts, hosted on the decentralized LBRY platform.

“LBRY is a fantastic initiative that supports our belief of putting members first,” said Jeff Kirdeikis, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Uptrennd, “through this integration, Uptrennd users are able to better monetize their passions through an alternative, content-driven channel which allows publishers and fans interact directly without risking demonetization.”

At a time when social media governance and information use is under a microscope, Uptrennd and LBRY work to remove many of the barriers that typically work against the organic reach of content creators and their work. Through fairer algorithms and more altruistic compensation models, Uptrennd and LBRY users are able to build a following without sacrificing the right to ownership over their data, works, and other information.

“Uptrennd and LBRY both believe in leaving users in control. This integration is a perfect match and a great demonstration of how LBRY technology can be integrated into other platforms,” said LBRY Founder and Chief Executive, Jeremy Kauffman.

Kirdeikis continued, “While other video-sharing websites decide If users can earn money through advertising, on LBRY, everybody can earn even if they don’t have a lot of subscribers.

We believe together, our solutions will produce a healthier, more ethical social environment for all.”

About LBRY

LBRY is a new protocol that allows anyone to build apps that interact with digital content on the LBRY network with no middlemen, no censorship, and no interference. Apps built using the protocol allow creators to upload their work to the LBRY network of hosts (like BitTorrent), to set a price per stream or download (like iTunes) or give it away for free (like YouTube without ads).

The work you publish could be videos, audio files, documents, or any other type of file.

LBRY has millions of pieces of content from top creators available on this decentralized protocol that is community-driven, open-source, and built on an ethos of user control. For more information please visit https://lbry.com/.
