When knowledge is power, it’s incredibly important to ensure everyone can access factual, trustworthy information. This month, we worked on an exciting announcement from our newest client, Everipedia, a company purpose-built to decentralize the world’s knowledge. With over six million articles, Everipedia is the largest English encyclopedia and the company has now set its sights on becoming the very first encyclopedia on the blockchain.

Everipedia’s noble mission of creating a more modern and inclusive version of Wikipedia actually attracted Wikipedia’s co-founder, Dr. Larry Sanger  -- he is now Everipedia’s Chief Information Officer.

It’s great to see the community embrace Everipedia with articles in WIRED, The Next Web and TechRepublic. In a matter of hours, Everipedia was even trending on TechMeme. As The Next Web said, “Giving the world all of this knowledge could change things for researchers, academics and interested citizens in countries that have banned and blocked information for political or religious reasons.”
