What is LBRY.Science

LBRY.Science (pronounced Library(dot)Science) is an organization advancing science through curation, education, and community. With support from the LBRY and Gridcoin communities, LBRY.Science facilitates scientific discussion by developing and backing fair, clear, and unbiased content such as blogs, articles, podcasts, and videos.

Current Supported Content

LBRY.Science currently supports the participatory podcasts:

The Gridcoin Fireside is a participatory podcast brought to you by the Gridcoin community. It is intended to introduce and explore DLT, cryptocurrency, and crypto-economics from a science oriented perspective.

The audience is welcome to participate through voice-comms or via the discord text chat.

You can join the Gridcoin community every Thursday at 8:00pm EST on the Gridcoin discord server.

BOINC Radio is a participatory podcast brought to you by the BOINC community. On it @Delta1512 and @jringo discuss BOINC, BOINC developments, BOINC projects, the BOINC community and network, and SCIENCE!

The audience is welcome to participate through voice-comms or via the discord text chat.

You can join the BOINC community on the first and 3rd Friday of the month at 4pm EST on the BOINC Network discord server.

Future Content

LBRY.Science intends to explore supporting science blogs, scientific curation, the creation of future audio and visual content, community competitions, and any approved initiatives the community can come up with.

If you have an idea or an initiative you think would fit under the LBRY.Science umbrella, please reach out to the LBRY.Science community through the process detailed below, or by e-mailing [email protected]


LBRY.Science is hosted on the Gridcoin Discord server in the #lbry-science channel. This is the place in which discussions take place and where competitions, content, and bounties will be announced.

You can also join the BOINC Radio live recordings on the BOINC Network Discord server.

The recorded podcasts are hosted by DisComputingUni on the LBRY platform, podbean, apple podcasts, or spotify. You can also follow DCUni on twitter @discomputinguni.

What is LBRY

LBRY is a decentralized content hosting platform launched in 2016. LBRY utilizes a permissionless blockchain to create a decentralized marketplace and media sharing platform for all types of content, from videos to music, e-books and games, 3D-printing templates and more.

You can learn more about LBRY on their websites https://lbry.com/ and https://lbry.org, though the best ways to learn are to join the LBRY Discord or go to https://lbry.tv and listen to your favorite LBRY.Science supported podcasts.

What is Gridcoin

Gridcoin is a permissionless blockchain and cryptocurrency exploring the relationships between DLT, democratized incentives, distributed computing, open economic networks, and science.

Gridcoin mints and distributes cryptocurrency in relation to the processing power a network participant directs toward data-driven analysis and scientific discovery, as well as through a proof-of-stake reward mechanism. The Gridcoin blockchain monitors processing contributions to the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Networked Computing (BOINC). BOINC hosts major institutional computing projects such as IBM’s World Community Grid, SETI, and CERN, alongside projects developed by students, enthusiasts, mathematicians, researchers, and citizen scientists. Access to Gridcoin's computation resources is free, while computation contributors are incentivized with cryptocurrency minted by the Gridcoin protocol.
