Announcing Derpibooru's in-house Blockchain and NFTs

The End wasn't The End - Found a new home after the great exodus of 2012

Greetings! Tonight we are very pleased to announce a very important change that has been in the works for quite a few months now.
As you all know, Blockchain and cryptocurrencies in general have been increasing in popularity over the past few years, but Derpibooru has always adopted a very conservative and skeptical approach to those. The recent introduction of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) has completely changed our mind and set in motion the development and implementation of our very own Blockchain-based currency: Derpthereum!
With this comes a change in branding. From now on we shall be called “OpenBooru”, which signifies that anyone can contribute to our art collection and Blockchain. This is meant to convey that you may trust this system to be completely democratic and your, the users, hands.
You may be wondering how is Derpthereum different from any other cryptocurrency on the market. The fact of the matter is that by using our vast gallery of images as a source of trust, we can provide guarantees no other Blockchain-based currency can provide. Which is why we need your help!

Minting Derpthereum-based NFTs from on-site images

You can help our Blockchain grow and become more stable by minting NFTs from our already-existing on-site images. To do that, simply go to the image page, and scroll past the tags section. Once there, simply click “Mint NFT” and a revolutionary in-browser proof-of-work algorithm will use your computer’s resources to create a new entry in our Blockchain. Once your entry is created, it needs to be verified by others before we can truly integrate it into the Blockchain. Once verified, your entry will be added and be viewable by others.
For security reasons and to provide the best possible entropy, we currently only allow registered users to perform operations on the Blockchain. The way mining Derpthereum works is by taking into account the precise details of your interactions with the site, which in turn ensures that only people who actually use the site may influence the state of the Blockchain, making it a perfect self-regulating system.
You may use this page to check the current status of the Blockchain to make sure no fishy business is going on.
We are certain that you will enjoy this change, and on behalf of the Derpibooru staff team we thank you for years of participation in our art collection project which made all of this possible.
Thank you and have fun!
