The folks at LBRY recently reached out to me, and wanted to discuss automatically backing up all images uploaded to imgoat to their service.
It's actually a pretty neat idea- though I downloaded the platform and there's not a lot of content at the moment.
I have no plans to ever give up on Imgoat; I really like what we're doing as a community, and the site is growing rapidly. However, some users have said that they don't want to risk another catastrophe like slimgur and imgjar. I'm open to new ideas.
The pros of using LBRY
- images exist as long as the blockchain exists
- domains, servers, etc., cannot be seized, because there are none
- free speech :D
The cons of using LBRY
- imgoat can delete uploaded images, users cannot
- confusing for some
Let me know what you think.
