HackerNoon’s published over 1 billion words, and now all those words and stories are backed up on Arweave. This ensures that HackerNoon and it’s contributing writers will have Web3 backups for all their stories :-)
How do these Web3 Backups work?
The moment a HackerNoon story is published, it also gets backed up on Arweave. What does that mean? It means, HackerNoon stories will live even if HackerNoon dies. A version of trust but verify, as in, I believe HackerNoon will outlive me, but why not backup all the content on a public ledger just in case? Note: to date, via writer dashboard, contributors can also download JSON, PDF, and audio versions of their stories.
