A ninjs (News in JSON)-based tool for indexing news content on the blockchain
This prototype indexes news content on the EOSIO blockchain. It takes a news story and converts it to a blockchain and news media friendly format derived from ninjs (News in JSON). The resulting JSON object is then published as part of a blockchain transaction on the Jungle Testnet (a popular EOSIO testnet). If desired, the content can be encrypted using a SHA-256 hashing algorithm before pushing the transaction. The technology has a number of potential use cases, including to protect copyright, increase journalistic transparency, and safeguard content from data loss and censorship.
