Po.et, a blockchain media wants to stop IP theft and help content creators get paid

Imagine this scenario: you’re a hobbyist photographer who snaps a breathtaking photo of a sunset. You then upload it to one of Reddit’s many image-based subreddits. And then someone who runs a popular Twitter account decides to download your photo and then re-upload it to Twitter without including any attribution to you.

Meanwhile, you, the content creator, receive no credit for the work, much less any form of compensation.
