The funding process is expected to undergo significant experimentation throughout 2020.

Currently, funding from the LBRY Foundation is available in two forms: microprojects and grants.


Microprojects are single grants of a fixed amount of LBC for shorter term projects.

To propose a microproject, join the #proposals room of the chat.

Funding Process

Anyone with the LBRYian role can propose a project of up to 20,000 LBC and receive near-immediate funding. Funding proposals are submitted to the #proposals chat room. Funding proposals are free form, but good requests answers these questions:

  • What is the funding?
  • What specific outcomes happen as a result of the funding?
  • How can success be measured?
  • How long will the project take?
  • How long will the funding last?

Proposals that are supported by at least 5 non-affiliated Veteran LBRYians are funded.

No single person can receive more than 20,000 LBC per month via micro projects.

(Julie Sigwart would be thrilled to share some LBC with you if you do this for her)


For LBC funding greater than 20,000, grants are available.

Funding Process

Anyone can request a grant by submitting this form.

Grant proposals are voted on by the Foundation Board (see Governance) on a weekly basis.
