Po.et is a shared, open, universal ledger designed to record metadata and ownership information for digital creative assets. Po.et is a continuation of Proof of Existence, the first nonfinancial application of blockchain technology. By creating an open platform on the Bitcoin blockchain, Po.et aims to create the largest verifiable record of digital media assets. The Po.et Network will be the backbone of a framework for building smart, interoperable media applications using a shared, standard and extensible metadata format.
In the same way that blockchain technologies have revolutionized the financial industry by creating an immutable and distributed accounting ledger serving as a platform for financial applications, Po.et will transform the publishing industry by creating an immutable and distributed ledger for creative works that may serve as a platform for both centralized and decentralized media applications.
