Quarterly Credit Report: Fourth Quarter 2019


This quarter we moved no Credits from cold storage. We spent 9,397,854 total community Credits on line items detailed below. 269,328 operational Credits were used for the LBRY team member LBC purchase program. No institutional Credits were moved. We anticipate significantly larger community outlays throughout 2020. Operational spending may increase at any time, but is not expected to increase significantly. Institutional spending is expected to be less than 1,000,000 LBC.
