How do NFT articles protect rights?
At dArticle.io, we want every article to be an NFT. When an article gets submitted, a NFT is created is on the dArticle.io Smart contract on the Polygon blockchain. This smart contract is publicly verifiable, and a link to every verifying every NFT is present on the bottom of each article.
By creating an Article NFT, not even darticle.io has the ability to remove it from the blockchain. Only and only the owner of the NFT is able to do it. Moreover, the content of the data is stored on a IPFS node with an identifying hash. Article owners can download this data on their systems, and be able to host this IPFS node themselves, thus guaranteeing, that the article is never lost to the platform. You can learn more about IPFS storage here.
The dArticle.io platform does not crash, as its crucial data relies solely on decentralized providers (other than maintenance breaks). Every writer can thus feel secure that they own the rights to their article and cannot be snubbed by the platform.
Your article. Your property.
The internet today relies on platforms connecting audiences to creators. Here the hegemony and the underlying power of distribution rely solely on the platform. The platforms have become so powerful that they regularly disobey the host government’s guidelines and codes of conduct. Such an over-reliance on a totally private organization will be challenging and simply not have enough trust in the future.
There are many cases or reported tweets being shunned down by twitter, where they do not show up on peoples’ feeds even though they follow a certain creator. YouTube has shown to remove subscribers anonymously from your network and has an ever-standing issue with comments not being shown properly.
