Civil is building a newsroom platform using blockchain technology and cryptoeconomics to create an open marketplace for journalists and citizens.

The Ethereum blockchain plays a foundational role in Civil's model: The token is a value stored in a decentralized database that's managed by Civil's smart contract, which allows the Civil platform to interact on Ethereum Blockchain.
