PUBLISH, Inc. enters into strategic partnership with Alexandria.io to develop extended OIP specification for blockchain news dissemination

Mon, 11 Mar 2019, 04:42 am UTC

Blockchain media platform company PUBLISH, Inc. announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Alexandria.io to develop an extended Open Index Protocol specification catering to blockchain news dissemination.

Based in South Korea, PUBLISH, Inc. is the software service provider behind an innovative blockchain media protocol and content management system for digital newspapers.

Alexandria, otherwise known as the Decentralized Library of Alexandria, is a decentralized content library built on the Open Index Protocol (OIP).

The OIP enables users of Alexandria to search and browse a worldwide database of multimedia content indexed on the FLO blockchain and stored on the Interplanetary File Storage System (IPFS).

The OIP achieves this by defining a standard for metadata to be included in blockchain transaction comments associated with a given file. OIP-compliant transactions can accommodate a multitude of values, from a file’s location on the internet (e.g., the IPFS) to its authorship and other editorial and technical information. The result is an immutable index that facilitates permissionless publishing, content discovery, rights management, and remuneration.

Under the terms of the agreement, the two companies will collaborate on the development of a new common metadata framework specific to blockchain news dissemination and mapped to existing news standards, such as the IPTC’s (International Press Telecommunications Council) NewsML-G2.

FLO, released 17 June 2013 with no pre-mine and no ICO, is a public record that introduces a metadata layer allowing for quick and easy reading and writing to the blockchain. In addition to Alexandria, FLO serves as the preferred blockchain for a number of other applications including Overstock’s (NASDAQ:OSTK) STO platform tZERO, Caltech’s Electron Tomography Database, and Medici Land Governance.
