The Content Blockchain Project was initiated in 2016 by a consortium of publishing, law and IT companies to research the possibilities of using blockchain technologies to advance the content and media ecosystem.

The Content Blockchain Project itself is run as an open non-profit initiative and is building foundational technologies for the media ecosystem. Our goal is to create a decentralized, global, digital infrastructure for the creative community to discover, register, navigate, offer, sell and license digital media content and otherwise exchange value over the network.

All project results and achievements are documented and available as open source code that can be used for any kind of commercial and non-commercial purposes. Thus by design, the Content Blockchain network is open for anyone to create and develop all kinds of new and innovative applications and tools that can connect to the distributed ledger.
