This WordPress PlugIn To Allow Ethereum Timestamp

Amsterdam-based WordProof announced today it will allow customers to timestamp content on the Ethereum blockchain, it said during the BlockDown Conference 2020 on October 22.

WordProof provides copyright protection for content creators & verifiable information for website visitors. It empowers internet users and content creators with the tools to build a safer and more trustworthy internet and is backed by the top teams working on newer technologies, such as EOS parent company

The service has been initially rolled out for support on WordPress, a widely-popular content management system that is estimated to power over 35% of the internet.

Adopting Ethereum

WordProof recently won Europe’s Blockchains for Social Good competition (€ 1,000,000) and onboarded Yoast SEO as an investor, which goes to show the platform’s relentless approach to building blockchain-powered applications.

The rollout of the Timestamp Ecosystem will see multiple stakeholders join forces: including site owners (such as publishers, e-commerce websites, and businesses), advertisers, big-tech, and policymakers.

In a statement, WordProof said that being blockchain agnostic is crucial to bring these stakeholders together, explaining why WordProof now supports the Ethereum blockchain (alongside EOS and Telos).

Meanwhile, Jelle van der Schoot, the head of product at WordProof, said of the launch:

“Blockchain was originally invented for timestamping. At WordProof, we’re committed to being the most user-friendly timestamping tool that can be used in all content management systems and e-commerce platforms.”

He added, “adding support for Ethereum marks an important step towards achieving this goal, so we’re excited to welcome the Ethereum community to the WordProof Timestamp Ecosystem.”

The WordProof press release is timestamped on the Ethereum blockchain, which can be verified by clicking on the View this content’s WordProof Timestamp certificate” at the end of any content.

The launch helps take a major use case of blockchain technology a step further — that of providing the masses with freely available and verifiable information.
