WordProof just made history on the EOS Blockchain.
And we here at EOSwriter are extremely honored to be part of this historic moment. The article you are reading right now is the first to be time stamped onto the EOS blockchain.
As blockchain entries become the standard for best journalism practices, content that sits on mutable private databases won’t be treated as authentic, original, or true.Brendan Blumer – CEO of Block.one
So what is WordProof?
WordProof is a WordPress plugin which enables you to time stamp your content onto the EOS blockchain for free. Sebastiaan van der Lans is the creator of WordProof and does a much better job describing the project than us!
Why is time stamping content on a blockchain so important?
“In five years from now, if you don’t timestamp your articles on the blockchain, you’re going to be considered a fraud.”Brendan Blumer – CEO of Block.one
Brendan said it in 2017 and now we are literally witnessing it. The age of censored and fraudulent content is over! and we here at EOSwriter are 100% behind this movement, hence why we jumped at the opportunity to begin time stamping our articles on the EOS blockchain.
On-boarding New EOS Users
There are currently 75 million publishers using the WordPress software, which means that (at the time of writing) 32-33% of all internet websites are running on WordPress software. Given that the software is open source the WordPress community is huge! and EOS seems to be perfectly situated to onboard a large number of these users.
The Future – Internet 3.0
Time stamping content onto the EOS blockchain is one part of a larger movement towards creating the Internet 3.0. EOS now has……
- dmail – Allowing EOS account holders to send and receive decentralized mail with their EOS accounts.
- EOS Domain Names – EOS Name Service is currently working on an EOS version of the current DNS (domain name system) to turn your EOS account name into a decentralized DNS.
- Hosting – As the scalability of the EOS mainnet continues to evolve with projects like LiquidApps and Dunya Labs, websites will soon have the option to be hosted on the EOS blockchain. We have heard predictions of late 2019 for this to become a reality.
