#DePub 202104 — ISCN, The Immutable Content Registry

Thank you for subscribing to the LikeCoin newsletter. This update is brought to you by the Liker Land team.

LikeCoin is a blockchain dedicated to content publishing. It is an infrastructure that enables decentralized content registry, rewards, and governance.

In the past year, the LikeCoin community has been promoting and building awareness around content monetization. We are glad that the effort is growing steadily and helped us understand the publishing landscape more. But it is just the beginning of what LikeCoin could offer.

The technical team has been working hard to build a content registration mechanism in addition to what LikeCoin has been doing. After 12 months of design, and validation process, the ISCN content registry is finally close to the finish. In the upcoming LikeCoin chain Fotan upgrade, we will include the Cosmos Stargate update and the ISCN module.

ISCN (International Standard Content Number)

Imagine it is the ISBN for digital content. ISCN (International Standard Content Number) is a decentralized content registry. It is a comprehensive metadata framework that can facilitate content registrations, licensing, and monetization for all media types. Content creators can register their content metadata and adequately set up content attributes before distributing the content.

The upcoming LikeCoin chain code-name is “FoTan” to commemorate the birthplace of the LikeCoin concept — Fo Tan, Hong Kong. We will launch the FoTan testnet this quarter, currently working on procedures/documents for migrating. So stay tuned! Welcome to check out the monthly community meeting records to learn more about our progress.
