Decentralized video infrastructure platform Livepeer raises $8M Series A

Video is the core entertainment medium of the web. Platforms like YouTube, Twitch, Netflix and more deliver millions of hours of videos to hungry consumers every day, and those deliveries will only intensify as video games move increasingly to streaming models. The brainchild of multi-time founder duo Doug Petkanics and Eric Tang, Livepeer offers a decentralized platform for video encoding centered on the Ethereum network.
