Quarterly Credit Report: Third Quarter 2020


This quarter we moved 10MM operational, 20MM community Credits, and no institutional Credits from master cold storage. We spent 13,455,301 total community Credits on line items detailed below. 10,217,739 operational Credits were used for the LBRY team member LBC purchase program, contract obligations, and secondary market sales.

Operational spending may increase or decrease at any time, but is not expected to increase significantly in Q4. Institutional spending could be substantial at any time, but would be expected to be coupled with sensible and sensitive distribution rules
