Building the trusted web with blockchain timestamps – DrupalCon Europe 2021

The internet is broken. We are slowly loosing trust in what we see and read on the internet. How can we bring back accountability and transparency on the net. Trust must become part of the internet’s DNA.

The solution is timestamping content on blockchain technology. From news outlets, to legal documents, ecommerce and social media. Timestamping is an open source solution to restore trust in the internet.

Each piece of content has an unique fingerprint, the hash. This hash is unique to that state of the content. Change any detail in the content and the hash will change. By storing the hash on a blockchain transaction you can forever prove that state of the content at a certain time.

The session was recorded and published on YouTube.
