Forbes experiments with stories published to the blockchain
Business magazine Forbes is joining forces with Civil, a journalism blockchain network, to become the first major media company to experiment with publishing stories to the blockchain, reports Sara Fischer of Axios.
Fischer reports, “Many publishers are skeptical of introducing blockchain technology into their supply chains, because it’s new and it’s difficult to understand. Forbes is sending a message to the industry that they think blockchain for journalism is the future.
“The big picture: Forbes is experimenting with publishing a sample of its content to the Civil Network. Eventually, the broad goal is to one day migrate all of its published content over to the blockchain.
“How it works: Forbes will plug in Civil’s software to its proprietary content management system called ‘Bertie.’
- Once plugged in, Forbes journalists will be able to upload their metadata to the Civil network early next year, while simultaneously publishing to Forbes.com.”
