The uses of Blockchain technology seem endless. And it is that, every day that passes, new functions appear for blockchains. Which already have an active role in all sectors of society, from commerce to defense. And now, thanks to a new plugin, WordPress content can be stored on the Ethereum Blockchain, guaranteeing its authenticity and protecting copyright.
Blockchain, what for?
A mistake that people often make when hearing about Blockchain technology for the first time is to believe that it only serves to create cryptocurrencies. However, and although cryptocurrencies are the most famous product born from blockchains. This technology is not limited to the issuance of digital assets such as Bitcoin or Ethereum.
On the contrary, the characteristics of the Blockchain allow it to be used in practically any sector of our life. Thus, today we can see large banks like Wells Fargo and JPMorgan investing in their Blockchain capabilities. While the United States Department of Defense itself develops military functions on its blockchain.
This is so, because the Blockchain provides unmatched advantages over other technologies. By offering a decentralized database and practically impossible to hack. And therefore, an efficient means for the protection and transmission of information. What has allowed the emergence of a new function in the Ethereum Blockchain to store content created in WordPress.
