Mediachain Labs

Building Mediachain, an open, universal media library.

At Mediachain Labs, we are building the shared open data layer to enable the new generation of decentralized applications. We believe that the only way out of the incumbent-dominated internet is for emerging platforms to cooperate, leveraging open data and decentralized applications to distribute the “network effect” across a community of creators, users, developers and organizations.

Mediachain is a collaborative federated media metadata protocol that allows parties to make statements about creative works. The metadata statements are cryptographically signed by the contributor, timestamped in the Bitcoin blockchain, and stored in IPFS. The statements can then be looked up via perceptual search using an instance of the media itself.

Today we are publishing a protocol proposal for Mediachain and an outline of our work on the resolver layer.
