Quarterly Credit Report: Fourth Quarter 2018
This quarter we moved 118,635 operational and 240,000 institutional Credits from cold storage. We spent 1,084,796 total community Credits on line items detailed below. 118,635 operational Credits were used for the LBRY employee LBC purchase program. 100,000 institutional Credits were spent from the institutional fund as a second payment of a new media partnership. We anticipate comparable or larger total outlays in Q1 2019. Operational spending may increase, but not significantly. Community spending is likely to be comparable or higher. We will continue to incentivize new users and other beneficial behavior, which is likely to involve 1,000,000+ LBC from our community fund. Institutional spending is expected to be less than 1,000,000 LBC.
Overview By Fund
1,084,796 Credits were spent from the community fund, in the following areas:
As reliability and interest has been increasing, we anticipate continuing to reward new users, community contributions, and other beneficial activity. This is likely to represent no more than 1-2 million LBC.
- LBRY sold no LBC on the open market
- LBRY issued 118,635 LBC to employees
LBRY does not anticipate moving Credits to market this quarter due to both market conditions and our favorable cash position. However, should market conditions or our needs change, we reserve the right to move Credits to market as needed.
