HackerNoon has backed up all of their over 1 billion published words on the Arweave network to ensure that their content will remain accessible even if HackerNoon ceases to exist. When a story is published on HackerNoon, it is automatically backed up on Arweave. This means readers will still be able to access HackerNoon stories through Arweave's permanent URLs even if HackerNoon disappears. These Arweave backups provide writers with an indelible proof that their stories were published by them on HackerNoon. HackerNoon sees these Web3 backups as a testament to the future of content curation and distribution being built on public ledgers.
