Frequently Asked Questions

What is spee.ch?

Spee.ch is a media-hosting site that reads from and publishes content to the LBRY blockchain.

OK But Why Should I Care?

Spee.ch is a fast and easy way to host your images, videos, and other content. What makes this different from other similar sites is that Spee.ch is hosted on the LBRY blockchain. That means it is impossible for your content to be censored via digital means. Even if we took down Spee.ch today, all content would remain immutably stored on the LBRY blockchain.

Blockchain technology doesn’t solve the 5 dollar wrench attack, but it solves just about every other problem in media hosting and distribution.

Even better - you can host your own clone of Spee.ch to get even more control over your content. CLICK HERE FOR INFO.

Spee.ch is just the beginning of what will soon be a vibrant ecosystem of LBRY-powered apps. Use LBRY and you’re one step closer to true freedom.
