About

The Content Blockchain Project is developing a system for registering digital content and license information on a blockchain. We are also building a crypto-economic license trading prototype for secondary use of digital news content.

The project is an interdisciplinary initiative set out to tackle the triple challenge of developing a solution for content administration, tracking and trading that is practical from a technical, legal and economic point of view. The framework, tools and applications will be developed as open-source software. The foundational components will be designed to kick-start cross-sector innovation in online media. The higher level applications for license trading and content delivery will specifically focus on news journalism. Our aim is to drastically simplify the complex inter-organizational processes of license management, content distribution, first and secondary use as well as monetization of digital content. The Content Chain Project will enable new business models in the news ecosystem that were previously impossible. The Content Blockchain Project received funding from the Digital News Initiative.
