VERITAS: A Crucial Step towards Dismantling Media Censorship
How would a government approach a disruptive media channel which has no central authority? How will they persecute masses for supporting content that goes against popular propagandas? It is impossible to do so, believes the backers of VERITAS, a Swiss-based decentralised platform for journalists.
VERITAS aims to harness blockchain’s revolutionary features for its community-based content platform. The project instantly dismantles media censorship by transferring control to the community, through a powerful validation system.
“No third party will ever have the control on what can or not be published, all the decision to publish any content is democratically made by the community by using a powerful validation system. All single member will have exactly the same opportunity to progress based on their work. No privileged, not even member of the team.”

VERITAS aim to build a revolutionary and profitable platform for writers, journalists and freelance journalists that want to bring great information to the world. To make this possible we have to fully avoid censorship. However, to make all the platform successful and profitable, we have to make sure that it is valid and valuable by preventing any kind of spam and abuse. Avoiding censorship and keeping an high quality of contents it’s our main challange.
Why would i invest in VERITAS?
VERITAS is a new financial way to make profit with a clean a decentralized information, because To ensure that only serious writers and readers become the part of VERITAS platform, VERITAS has come up with a vote-based payment system.
“Every article, needs 1000 votes to be validated and every vote is worth a set amount of money. depending on how much your personal vote is worth (max: x20) you will get the money you deserve.“
“To be sure that anonymity is safeguarded and that payments are fairly distributed all payments are going to be totally automated.”
Why the blockchain?
We choose the power of the blockchain for a simple reason: our blockchain’s revolutionary features is a community-based content platform. The project will instantly dismantles media censorship by transferring control to the community, through a powerful validation system.
What about the control on the platform?
No third party will ever have the control on what can or not be published, all the decision to publish any content is democratically made by the community by using our validation system. All single member will have exactly the same opportunity to progress based on their work. No privileged, not even member of the team.
How it works the Coin Distribution?
VERITAS aims to kickstart its campaigning with an ICO. The project will create a total of 150,000,000 coins, out of which 100,000,000 coins will be allocated for the crowd sale.
“10,000,000 coins are going to be used as a reward to our local member of the team and external people that wish to help. The other 40,000,000 coins will be locked for 1 year (the estimated time of development) and are going to be distributed as the reward in the next years with a maximum of 4,000,000 per year. The coins that are not distributed during the ICO are going to be used to pay validators and writers.”
