Po.et (POE) is a rarity in the cryptocurrency world. Top coins, including a number of the ten most valuable ones, have a tendency to be just coins – tradable units of value that aren’t really attached to a product or platform yet. Digital currencies like IOTA (MIOTA) and EOS (EOS) are a long way from their platforms launching, for example, while just a small portion of mentionable currencies actually present something more to the consumer.
It is clear that Po.et (POE) is one of those coins, and its recent launch of a WordPress plugin proves that.
First – what is Po.et (POE), anyway?
Po.et (POE) is a cryptocurrency that began trading back in August of 2017. This coin is all about creative work, and how publishers and creators online monetize what they craft – so that can reclaim the value of their creations in a transparent way.
They do this through blockchain technology. It’s essentially a platform where you can timestamp your creations, then issue content licenses to consumers. This is how they describe it on their site:
“Using Po.et, you can generate immutable and timestamped titles for your creative works and register your assets to the Po.et network. Because the network is decentralized and secured by the blockchain, the metadata attribution remains safe, verifiable and immutable.”
Po.et (POE) is already officially useable on WordPress
About a week and a half ago, a big event came for Po.et (POE) – it announced that its platform had been accepted as a WordPress plugin. That means that WordPress publishers can already start registering their content on the Po.et blockchain:

Unlike so many coins on the market, this one is actually providing a useful solution to their users. There are still a ton of features they are working on within their roadmap, and there’s a long way to go – but this whole WordPress thing is a solid step forward on the path of being a blockchain platform that people are actually using in the real world.
