Why Do We Do This

Do we even know what's real anymore?

.

Kids are using apps to swap faces, change voices, or put on animated rabbit ears. But the same technology can be used for nefarious purposes: showing a politician doing things they never did; manipulating the voice in a podcast to say something the person never said.

More practical reasons include manipulating intellectual property to contest ownership for legal reasons or changing the end of a movie using a new actor.

We were terrorified of a world of deep fakes

.

We were tired of being afraid that we might read something online that distorted the truth of the person we thought was creating the content. We were not going idly stand by and allow videos to be modified saying and doing things opposite of what the presenter or brand ambassador approves. We didn't want political elections to be derided by false narratives.

We also hate the word fake news

.

That's why we created Blockstamped.com. A way that content could never be taken out of context without warning the audience before they consumed it. A way for content creators to show ownership and approve messaging without risking outside influencers modifying it. Always searching for content that is similar to the Blockstamped content to highlight potential deep fakes and digital maniuplation.

We blockstamp the following types of content.

Extensions

Want to see for yourself?

.

We have built a Google Chrome extension and a Mozilla Firefox extension to allow you to see what content on YouTube and Vimeo has been Blockstamped.

How The Extension Works

.

The extension when you are viewing YouTube or Vimeo content changes colors based on authenticating the content to Blockstamped.

It first verifies that the content as a whole matches it's blockchain identification number. It looks to see if the authentication matches an authorized Blockstamped originator.

Secondly, it looks to see if the content seems to have changed in size, timing, or if any frame has been modified with it's hash calculation.

If the content matches the original hashes and no deviations are detected with the stamped version on the blockchain, the color turns green within YouTube, Vimeo. Green means ORIGINATED.

However, if the content is detected to have small percentage of discrepancies, YouTube, Vimeo turns gray. It is tagged as DISCREPANCY.

Yet if a high volume of changes have been detected, it is deemed UNIDENTIFIED and YouTube, Vimeo turns red.
