The news reporting industry is currently stagnant in its ability to provide consumers with unbiased, uninfluenced, fact driven, reporting. This results in the average reader being misinformed and with a potentially skewed view of the state of local, national and global affairs. Additionally, the financial sector is often a nebulous industry that feels inaccessible to the average person.
Origin Reporting is a News Media and Financial News Platform, accessible via the web and mobile app, which connects readers with independent reporters and major media sites. Readers can then rate articles on their level of clarity, impartiality, and factuality. Independent reviewers will assess articles and for those deemed to be within the parameters of Origin Reporting’s mission of unbiased fact, they will be marked as “Verified”. To bring the financial industry to the novice we connect the financially savvy to the novice by incentivizing them to share their knowledge.
Origin Reporting is powered by the Ethereum Blockchain and smart contracts to ensure secure, transparent transactions and accessible, unadulterated data. Blockchain technology provides a real-time, cost-effective and secure settlement model for reporters and readers alike. Each Smart Contract will power an Origin Reporting (OMT) Token, known as Origins.
The more a user participates in Origin Reporting by writing, commenting on, or rating articles, the more Origins the user earns. For users focusing on learning the financial industry they can pose questions to those with financial knowledge. For validation of the articles accuracy, articles will have RSS feeds to outside sources containing similar content. These RSS feeds will also be subject to Independent review process.
Origin Reporting’s long term vision is to become the community powered news base for other media companies. To be the source of the news that is reported on a global scale and bringing with it a fresh look on how news should be reported.
