We have another announcement for you all today. Starting late 2019, we began talks to work with an exciting project, WordProof. They are set on building a safer and more transparent internet with their solution, WordProof Timestamp that provides auditable and undeniable evidence for content on the web. WordProof customers benefit from several features including:
- Copyright protection for text, images and documents by providing proof of existence.
- Time machine that shows what edits are made meaning customers can trust in the authenticity of your brand and website
- Verifiable trust that shows visitors when the content was last updated and acts as proof that the content was not manipulated by any 3rd parties
Building first on WordPress, with plans to launch on other popular CMS platforms such as Drupal, Magento, Shopify and Lightspeed eCommerce, WordProof has already amassed some impressive figures in the first six months since their launch.
Their WordPress plugin is available for use today, and it’s super easy to get started. CEO and founder, Sebastiaan van der Lans, runs through the quick setup here in this video.
“The ability to prove and verify integrity shouldn’t be a privilege, it’s a human right. WordProof Timestamp Ecosystem is the first blockchain use-case ready for mass-adoption, ready to improve lives, today!” — Sebastiaan van der Lans, Founder of WordProof
Other things to get excited about
WordProof is one of the top 23 finalists vying for a part of the EIC Horizon Prize on “Blockchains for Social Good” with a prize pool that totals €5 Million.
Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) — in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.
This is an amazing accomplishment already and we wish them the best of luck in their final presentation during the Finalist’ Day taking place Feb 10th, 2020. Link to the event below!

Where does AIKON fit in?
With AIKON and ORE ID, WordProof aims to bring user adoption and scale to the next level. WordProof has long been fans of our identity solutions in ORE ID, and understand that in-order for their solution to be accessible to the masses in a compliant way, a service like ORE ID plays a critical role in that goal.
We at AIKON are so excited to be able to play a part in making the web a safer place. In a global digital climate marred by fake news, phishing and malicious actors, verifiable content makes for one of the most obvious use cases of blockchain technology. WordProof is leading the charge in this regard with their polished feature set and immense reach in their user base by launching on WordPress, which powers up to 35% of the internet.
“With the rising tide of misinformation on the internet, products like WordProof have an incredibly important role to play,” said AIKON CEO, Marc Blinder, “being able to prove what content is real and when it was published is vital to the future of democratic society.”
Look forward to the ORE ID integration on WordProof coming this April!
