A photo from Telegram in March shows debris all over a school classroom in Kharkiv. Starling Lab and its partners submit this photo to the International Criminal Court as evidence of war crimes committed.
🔎In Focus: Project Starling
LikeCoin has been working with Starling Lab in the past year to register important media metadata to LikeCoin chain for immutable preservation.
Cofounded by Stanford Electrical Engineering Department and USC Shoah Foundation, Starling Lab focuses on making good use of decentralised web protocols to archive important digital records.
Submit blockchain evidence to court
Earlier this year, one week after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Project Starling began building the digital evidence preservation pipeline alongside with collaborators including LikeCoin. On 10 June, 2022 the team submitted the 1st of many dossiers to the ICC documenting war crimes that targeted 5 schools in Kharkiv. This is the first time where a methodology involving cryptographic systems, distributed storage, and public ledgers are utilized to secure evidence in a submission to any court of law.
Open source code and infrastructure operated by Starling Lab and partners produced encrypted archives of evidence assets that are redundantly replicated and publicly catalogued while protecting identities of personnel. These archives included cryptographic signatures and secure @opentimestamps, and are registered to Numbers Protocol and LikeCoin for assurances of authenticity and their existence in time. Starling Lab announced the Dokaz Alliance at #Consensus2022 to continue this work for authentic digital evidence preservation that will stand against misinformation and weaponized synthetic media for the years to come.
Content preservation is one of the important use cases of LikeCoin. Together with projects and partners such as Starling Labs, Numbers Protocols and Arweave that embrace the same dream, the knowledge about humanity can be inherited in a more reliable way.
