Adblock Plus uses Blockchain to Detect Fake News
Adblock Plus developer eyeo GmbH will use blockchain technology in its browser extension Trusted News, TechCrunch reports June, 13.
The project’s website states that the browser add-on labels fake news media while marking trustworthy sources and stories.
The extension works with the MetaCert protocol, which uses an anti-fraud URL registry to maintain the database for the project.
And then the next step is to decouple that from any server, and from any third party, and give it directly to the blockchain.
eyeo is not the only company to express their interest in combating fake news.
