Utrecht, The Netherlands – Last Thursday, Blockchain Netherlands organized a meetup dedicated to blockchain timestamping. I presented our vision on how Content Timestamps have the ability to redefine the web as we know it while bringing back integrity. Let’s fix the web, together!
Here’s a summary of my presentation, including four ways to fix the broken web, today:
4 Solutions to Fix the Broken Web with Content Timestamps:
- With an Open Source platform like WordPress, as a Publisher or Merchant, you are resilient against Censorship. #OwnYourData
- Timestamping an Open Source Fingerprint of this content and its revisions with blockchain, so you have a Proof of Existence; a Certificate of Birth.
- Make this Content Timestamp Verifiable by any Human in an Open Source manner; reader, buyer etc.
- Make this Content Timestamp Verifiable by any Machine in an Open Source manner; Search Engines, Social Media, etc.
I ended the presentation with WordProof’s plans for 2020 (spoiler: we plan to roll WordProof out to other communities like Drupal).
