LBRY offers in app rewards for certain achievements - publishing your first video, watching promoted content, etc. These rewards are intended for people who want to explore LBRY and the content it offers. Instead, we have noticed that most of the people requesting access to the rewards program are doing so because they just want a free lunch.
To combat this, a stripe credit card verification process was added to the LBRY application, but not everyone who legitimately wants to use LBRY has a credit card or wants to expose their personal financial details in that way. So the Community moderators are now manually verifying that the people asking for access to the rewards programme are human - no pesky bots allowed. To do this we need some information from you.
To verify that you are in fact a human, and not some automated bot trying to collect as much money as possible. We will check the age of your accounts, look through the publicly shared information and make sure it hasn't been altered in some suspicious way - some people have resorted to buying old unused social network accounts for pennies so they can appear legitimate, but there are ways to tell if an account has been created for this purpose. Even after this process, not all users or regions may qualify for rewards to to many factors - we ask you to respect this decision and you can enjoy LBRY without rewards for the time being.
So we can match back the information from your social network accounts to the email address you are using for either Discord or LBRY.
