At Kelp, we build the essential infrastructure for the emerging creator economy to work. We are a small and ambitious team working to empower content creators and transform the multimedia marketplace. Our current focus is on resolving numerous issues with content attribution and copyright protection.
The project is partly funded by the European Commission initiative and supported by the Web3 Foundation. We are open source.
We are a pragmatic bunch who are not afraid to break the norms to get the stuff done. All of us share the same idea — to shift the power from the centralized closed systems to individual creators. This is not an easy feat, it brings a lot of challenges technology-wise as well in education and public perception where creators, especially photographers, are undervalued and their work is often (miss)used.
Kelp.Digital empowers photographers & visual artists to store, claim, sell, and rent their work with the correct transfer of Rights and usage of Licenses.
Kelp is the first Dapp built on Anagolay.Network — a Substrate-based peer-2-peer protocol that stores records of Rights (Copyright, Licenses, and Ownership), Restrictions, and Proofs of any digital content. The app communicates with the GraphQL server through the Apollo GraphQL client, web-workers for blockchain communication and image processing.
The web application is built using the latest ReactJS and Grommet.
We are looking for a cooperative and confident team member with a curious and inquisitive mind to help us build distributed app connecting to GraphQL and Blockchain endpoints.
