LBRY and Odysee – A video hosting review.

Wooo-boy here goes S reviewing another crypto service!

You are absolutely right in the respect that we are reviewing a little site known as Odysee.com. A site that wants a piece of that sweet YouTube traffic out there but also has its own blockchain services powering it. We’ve been very critical about Web 3.0 services in the past such as PreSearch and now we really want Odysee to prove us wrong.

To the point where we even got hit with a copyright strike over a song “William Tell” which is a classical music song that falls underneath the category of public domain.
