Blockchain technology – which powers cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, but also powers the likes of Ethereum, which allows for building decentralized apps – holds promise for developing a sustainable journalism eco-system. Through Civil, newsrooms within their eco-system can archive a permanent record of original content, participate in the governance structure of the platform and choose to monetize their content (and, one day, apps) through a variety of different means (without the need for people to hold CVL tokens). We’ll discuss how companies are developing a media business model based on blockchain, moving the conversation out of the theoretical realm and into practical, real-world use.
