Library Credits (LBC) are mined over a 20-year Proof of Work period. Block rewards increase every 100 blocks by 1LBC, peak at 500, and decline slowly.
LBRY mining is dominated by the GPU market and we don’t see CPU mining as economically viable at this point. If you still want to CPU mine to help the network, see instructions below.
For GPU mining, please see our list of pools. Each pool has a slightly different setup so please check their Getting Started page.
For CPU mining, LBRY binaries are out for OS X, Windows, and Ubuntu. Others may try compiling from source.
You can download the latest binaries here
