The plugin can help with copyright issues, proof of who created a piece of content, and to reassure readers it has not been altered. WordPress currently powers around 37% of all websites and has a 60% share of the CMS market.
Amsterdam-based WordProof made the announcement at the London BlockDown 2020 3D virtual blockchain conference on October 22.
Timestamping is important because it provides a unique fingerprint, or hash, for the latest version of the content which has been added to the blockchain.
This provides proof that the owner of the content created it, and it has not been edited or tampered with. Additionally, the website has proof of publishing time, which can be used for potential copyright conflicts.
Head of Product at WordProof, Jelle van der Schoot, stated the company’s vision is to be the most user-friendly timestamping tool for use across all content management systems and e-commerce platforms. WordProof also supports EOS and Telos.
“Adding support for Ethereum marks an important step towards achieving this goal, so we’re excited to welcome the Ethereum community!”
Crypto is increasingly being integrated into WordPress. In April 2020 a blockchain startup incubator called Draper Goren Holm, unveiled the first DEX plugin for the CMS platform. The plugin allows website owners to feature a built in DEX that allows users to exchange between crypto tokens and stablecoins.
The official WordPress site itself already has three pages of plugins categorized as crypto. The most popular include a crypto payments portal with over 10,000 active installations and a crypto price ticker widget with over 7,000 active installations.
