CoinDesk published this video item, entitled “Ukraine War Eyewitness Accounts and Why We’re Preserving Them on a Blockchain” – below is their description.

“Ukraine: The War On-Chain” is a special CoinDesk TV production that features, and registers on a blockchain, eyewitness accounts of the war to show how they can be preserved for future criminal trials. Live from Consensus 2022 in Austin, Texas, host Ben Schiller sits down with Ukrainians Pavel Kravchenko, a tech entrepreneur; Alex Bornyakov, a Ukraine government official; Starling Lab Founding Director Jonathan Dotan; and Filecoin Foundation Chair Marta Belcher. Dotan explained the Starling framework for capturing, storing, and verifying images of war crimes so they can’t be easily dismissed as “fake news.” The group also discussed the huge, overall problem of disinformation and whether blockchain and Web 3 technologies can help to win the fight against it.

In This Story: Blockchain

A blockchain is a distributed database that is shared among the nodes of a computer network. As a database, a blockchain stores information electronically in digital format. Blockchains are best known for their crucial role in cryptocurrency systems, such as Bitcoin, for maintaining a secure and decentralized record of transactions. The innovation with a blockchain is that it guarantees the accuracy and security of a record of data and generates trust without the need for a trusted third party.

Filecoin is a decentralized storage system that aims to “store humanity’s most important information.” The project raised $205 million in an initial coin offering (ICO) in 2017.

The project was first described back in 2014 as an incentive layer for the Interplanetary File System (IPFS), a peer-to-peer storage network. Filecoin is open protocol and backed by a blockchain that records commitments made by the network’s participants, with transactions made using FIL, the blockchain’s native currency. The blockchain is based on both proof-of-replication and proof-of-spacetime.

Filecoin was founded by Juan Benet, who also created the Interplanetary File System. Benet is an American computer scientist who studied at Stanford University.
