Everipedia’s Relationship with Ethereum Blockchain

Everipedia has been leveraging the Ethereum blockchain for quite a long time. According to the report, Associated Press used its software to disseminate data from the 2020 Presidential Election, January 2020 Senate runoffs, and the Super Bowl, which were powered by the Ethereum blockchain.

The report reads in part as follows:

“The 2020 election data published by AP through our OraQle was used to resolve a prediction market that saw more than 379 ETH in volume. The data was also later used to produce AP’s first NFT artwork, a one-of-one piece that sold for 100.888 ETH (~$180,000) and was created in collaboration with Everipedia.”

What Makes the Development Worthwhile for Ethereum?

According to the report, March Madness is one of the most popular sports events in the United States. Back in 2019, the March Madness college basketball tournament was viewed by over 10.5 million people.

So, the fact that every game’s scores and schedules will be published on the Ethereum blockchain makes the collaboration between the duos worthwhile for Ethereum, March Madness fans, and others alike.

March Madness fans can watch Associated Press publish the score of each game live on Ethereum using Everipedia OraQle dashboard, as the first games start on 18th March 2021 at 6:00 PM (EST).
