Po.et Releases Frost API for Easy Timestamping of Creative Assets


Po.et, the blockchain-based open ledger for creative assets, announced, Thursday, the release of its Frost open API and developer tools, designed to make it easier for content creators to register their work, streamlining the digital content distribution process.

Po.et — Proof of Existence 2.0 — is a Bitcoin blockchain protocol for managing the ownership, attribution and licensing of creative digital assets, through a transparent and timestamped system of attribution. Po.et is based in Singapore and the United States, according to the company’s statement.

The Frost API will allow users to interact with the decentralized network using a traditional username and password, as opposed to being required to run a full Po.et node to register their content and be a part of the project.

Po.et Foundation board member, Tyler Evans said, in a statement, “Today’s media landscape is fragmented and reliant on manual processes. At Po.et, we set out to build a simple, friendly platform that is intuitive for our users, but also enables a platform for developers to create innovative decentralized media applications.”

Frost API access is available to developers now and designed to integrate with existing content platforms, including a WordPress plugin that will allow users to automatically timestamp and register their content within the WordPress content management system (as well as on the Po.et blockchain). Other tools including developer documentation and a javascript library will allow content channels and community management platforms like Maven to build applications to interact with the Po.et protocol.

Maven CEO and Po.et advisor James Heckman said, “Partnering with Po.et advances our strategy to provide Maven publishers with the greatest tools available to drive maximum monetization, distribution, transparency and security. Maven’s vision and mission are perfectly aligned with Po.et’s – at the end of the day, we’re working to empower and protect independent publishers.”

Access to Frost is available now to registered users at http://frost.po.et/.
