WordProof Timestamp

Description

WordProof: Timestamp your WordPress Content on the Blockchain

With WordProof Timestamp, you can timestamp your WordPress content on any EOSIO blockchain from the comfort of your WordPress site. No prior blockchain experience necessary: either manually timestamp your content or activate automatic timestamps.

Why do I need to timestamp my content?

WordProof Timestamp does everything in its power to bring the benefits of blockchain to your WordPress website. Here are some reasons why you should timestamp your content:

  • Copyright protection
  • Transparency: increase trust and claim authenticity
  • Next-generation SEO benefits
  • Proof of existance at certain moments in time
  • Prepare for upcoming EU regulations
  • Be your own notary

Features

  • Automatically timestamp your content on the blockchain
  • Show the blockchain certificate pop-up on your website
  • Downloadable blockchain certificate as proof of existence
  • Copyright Infringement Claim Tools
  • Revision Management

How does WordProof Timestamp work?

Timestamping creates a unique and universal fingerprint (called the hash) for every piece of content. If the input changes even the slightest, the hash becomes totally different.

This hash is added to the blockchain with a date and time. Because you have the input that results in this specific hash, you can prove that you had the content at that point in time.

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.
