As SXSW 2024 unfolds, hundreds of thousands of people will gather to embrace the latest innovations across industries, from culture to technology. Amidst this diverse confluence, there will be a mix of attractions, from the festival’s own keynotes and panels to smaller, more intimate events.

Grit Daily House is one such event, returning for its sixth year at SXSW. Just like every other year, it is set to be a hotspot for groundbreaking discussions and networking. Moreover, with the addition of the innovative agency Lively, The Lively & Grit Daily House has been born, promising more high-quality content than ever.

The Lively & Grit Daily House

Whether it be the private bartender or chef, The Lively & Grit Daily House is looking to provide a good place for VIPs to relax, not just a fantastic venue for top-tier content. Considering it is located within walking distance of the convention center in downtown Austin, it is the perfect place to unwind away from the hustle and bustle. 

Grit Daily’s flagship event is a cornerstone for those looking to dive deep into the discussions of the future. For three days, starting March 9th, it will serve as a melting pot for innovative leaders and respected journalists from renowned publications, promising rich insights into the evolving landscape of the fastest-growing industries.

Spotlight on Nodle

This year, The Lively & Grit Daily House is set to host Micha Anthenor Benoliel, Co-Founder & CEO of Nodle, a company at the forefront of connecting the physical world to Web3 through the innovative use of smartphones as edge nodes. Nodle’s mission is to empower anyone with a smartphone to participate in the network and earn NODL, the native token that fuels this expansive ecosystem.

NODL represents a groundbreaking approach to quantifying the value of connectivity provided by edge nodes within the network. Initially focusing on connectivity for smart devices, NODL embodies the value of bandwidth and the utility of smartphone capabilities such as computing, storage, and Bluetooth, marking a significant leap in the utility and governance of blockchain networks.

The Click App

At the heart of Nodle’s participation in SXSW is the discussion around Click, a camera app that leverages blockchain technology to validate the location and authenticity of images through IoT Bluetooth and on-chain verification. Click stands as the world’s first digital trust network, designed to empower creators and consumers to produce verifiably authentic media content, combating the tide of fake news with an immutable digital proof of authenticity.

Click’s approach to content authenticity is built on Nodle’s ContentSign technology, supporting the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA) and aligning with the Content Authenticity Initiative led by Adobe and the Linux Foundation. This technology not only secures the integrity of data but also democratizes access to authenticated content, making it universally accessible and verifiable.

As the first app to utilize the Nodle network for social good, Click addresses critical needs across various domains, including public safety, journalism, and content creation, by providing a reliable method to verify the authenticity of photos and videos.

The Future of Digital Trust

As Benoliel takes the stage at The Lively & Grit Daily House, attendees can anticipate insightful discussions on the intersection of blockchain technology, digital trust, and the role of decentralized networks in shaping the future of media authenticity.

As SXSW 2024 continues to foster discussions on the cutting edge of technology and innovation, the spotlight on Nodle and Click at The Lively & Grit Daily House underscores the evolving landscape of digital trust. The path toward a more authentic and trustworthy digital world is becoming clearer, offering promising solutions to some of today’s most pressing challenges in media and connectivity.
