NewsHash

A blockchain solution for the fight against fake news

proofOfAuth.31bd701b.svg

Acoer teamed up with Forkast.News to develop a proof of concept called NewsHash. NewsHash is an experimentation to illustrate how a blockchain solution could be used in the fight against fake news. Every item, including the article, the video, the video transcript and the illustration, has been timestamped and a fingerprint of each asset has been recorded on an immutable ledger called Hedera Hashgraph. The "read mode" of this page is no different than a regular news page, but if you enable the "prove mode", you'll be able to verify, and see the stamps of every asset. Each stamp is represented as a QR code that you can scan and you'll be redirected to ACOER Scanner Page to show you the content of the stamp.

Prove Mode

Items timestamped and fingerprinted

Every item, including the article, the video, the video transcript and the illustration, have been timestamped and a fingerprint of each asset has been recorded on an immutable ledger called Hedera Hashgraph

Verify

Click "Verify" to view public data and a stamp of an item in the form of a QR code

2D Barcode for Scanning

Each stamp is represented as a QR code that you can scan and be redirected to ACOER Scanner Page to show you the content of the stamp

Verify the proof generated from a stamp

Scan 2D Barcode

Scan the encoded 2D barcode with your mobile phone camera, or the scanner built into NewsHash.io/scan to retrieve the verification in the form of a signed Json Web Token (JWT)

Generate validity of the proof

The validity of proof includes duration, signature, ledger transaction, etc.

Try it yourself!
