Down to earth fact-checking and the role of blockchain | Miguel Gama Nunes

Make Media Great Again [MMGA] is developing tools to help journalists co-create high quality faultless journalistic reporting while making readers and tweeters aware of the actual status of sources used. We give the authority on the news back to the community via our timestamped news source tracking blockchain database in which any responsible source checker can do his or her thing.

Miguel Gama Nunes is a Master Student Informatics at the Vrije Universiteit. Long adopter of Blockchain and specializing in reputation-based blockchain tools. Looking into the potential of technology for the improvement of societal debate.
