Online encyclopedia Baidu Baike, the Chinese equivalent of Wikipedia, introduced blockchain technology to record the history of edits to articles. This writes CoinDesk.
The main task of technology is to increase the reliability, transparency and traceability of the platform.
In the public version Baidu Baike, a new service became available Monday, may 28, although some of the timestamps indicate that the hashing began last week.
Because to see the data hashed on the blockchain search engine Baidu at the moment it is impossible, it is not known what details about the revisions are stored in a distributed registry, whether the time changes, the name of the person who made the edit, or its causes.
We will remind, earlier the Internet giant Baidu has launched a blockchain-based platform for stock photos.
