Team & Vision
The internet has deep-rooted problems that grow daily: distrust, plagiarism, and fake news. WordProof wants to create a new standard for a more reliable and trustworthy internet, with the help of blockchain technology.
The WordProof Timestamp Ecosystem empowers internet users and content creators with the tools to build a safer and more trustworthy internet. Since the WordPress CMS powers over 39% of the internet, this is the first platform that is supported.
WordProof’s Proof-of-Concept was initially funded by the innovative Telos WPS, followed by a Grant by blockchain tech-giant Block.One. In June 2020, WordProof received financing by Innovatiefonds Noord-Holland, an initiative of the Dutch province of Noord-Holland, University van Amsterdam, Hogeschool van Amsterdam, Amsterdam UMC, and Sanquin, with support from the European Union.
Every member of the WordProof Team has signed the anti-harassment and discrimination policy made by Greylock Partners. The policy is only one part of nurturing a harassment-free workplace, and is a supporting component to a company culture that is set from the top.
