With timestamping your content, you can prove that you didn’t tamper with it, and you can prove at any moment in time, that you published that piece of content, a proof of existence, which is a great start to protect your valuable content.
In this article, I explain to you exactly how to timestamp your content in a blockchain.
There are several ways to do so:
- Timestamping your content manually;
- With a WordPress plugin like WordProof Timestamp;
- With an API, like the WordProof API.
