WordProof Timestamp

Description

WordProof: Timestamp your WordPress Content on the Blockchain

“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

With WordProof Timestamp, you can sign your WordPress content on any EOSIO blockchain from the comfort of your WordPress site. No prior blockchain experience necessary: the WordProof Setup Wizard helps you with everything, right from your WordPress dashboard.

Why do I need to timestamp my content?

There are hundreds of millions of websites. However, there are only a few websites visitors accept information from, let alone do business with. This is because they trust those websites. You gain the trust of your visitors by doing two things differently than your competition:

  • Claim ownership of your content
  • Show transparency to your visitors

WordProof Timestamp makes both these things possible with the power of blockchain.

I'm new to blockchain and was amazed how each it is to integrate this plugin into your Gutenberg edit stream and timestamp your content. Timestamp will soon be an SEO factor, so get ahead of the others and start timestamping (protecting) your content. Also be sure to get your free 'Words'. For every timestamp you need to 'spend' a Word. It's like an open source currency that protects against spam. Also be sure you join WordProof's Telegram feed and watch WordCamp Europe's excelleht presentations.

As a content creator I can finally protect my posts. The plugin works as expected and the developers are great. I gave a suggestion and the following day it was implemented. Looking forward to seeing other functions implemented soon.
