New Homepage - like.co

We have established our own LikeCoin chain and evolved to a public blockchain earlier this year. We saw the need to provide better project documentation and publicity to our community. So here you go for the first look at our new website! It currently included sections and links to 1) LikeCoin chain 2) What we do on content monetization, attribution, and distribution 3) Use Cases and 4) Resources for developers. We have also added our sponsor option for people who would like to support an open-source project like us. If you see anything that should be included on our website but wasn’t, feel free to let us know.

The 1st LikeCoin Hackerthon - Likerthon

The 1st Likerthon was introduced on 1 May in an online format with 1 million LikeCoin rewards. It is a 1-month stay home hackathon that allows participants to come up with proof of concept presentation. All websites/ applications which use or enhance LikeCoin protocol are eligible to join.

Participated in Cross-Chain Hackathon hosted by Cosmos

Our team has participated in the hackathon earlier this month building a Cosmos module called ISCN (International Standard Content Number) which allows users to save content metadata records on-chain. In addition to the module, an IPFS plugin was also introduced. Users can query the ISCN records through IPLD as linked data.
