The New York Times is looking to experiment with blockchain in publishing

The second largest newspaper in the United States, the New York Times is reportedly looking to implement blockchain technology in publishing.

According to a job posting, the news giant is looking for someone who will “envision and design a blockchain-based proof of concept for news publishers.”

The NY Times needs someone who “will codify the vision for the research project and share that vision with potential stakeholders at other media organizations” for the next 12 months. Additionally, the hire “will help brand and create a public identity and assets for the project.”

Furthermore, the candidate will need more than eight years of experience in “leading a combination of engineers, designers, journalists” in addition to “strong communication, writing and presentation skills.”

The new hire should also have “A mixed skill set with some experience in at least 3 of: journalism, product, design, software development, hardware engineering, user research” and an “Established track record in real-world application of new technologies.”

As Coindesk reports, the New York Times isn't the first to investigate blockchain-based applications for the media. The most well-known is Civil, an Etherum-backed startup.
