We believe in the 4th Estate

Democracy has never been more under threat from demagogues and populism. For democracy to work, it needs a strong fourth estate to hold the executive to account. The press must be the guardian of the truth.

The prevalence of "Fake News" profoundly undermines this.

It is impossible to electronically identify "Fake News" or "Deep Fake Videos".

However, Citizens Journalist authenticates GENUINE news using blockchain technology allowing genuine media footage to be certified and available for distribution to media outlets.


Immutable walled garden

The secret of the media recorded within the Citizens Journalist app is that it is within an immutable walled garden. It cannot be hacked or changed while it is stored within the app.

Any kind of media recording

Although the Citizens Journalist app is primarily for video recording, it can also be utilised for audio recording or multiple photographs taken with your mobile device.

Who, what, where and when

Whatever the media content, video, photographic or audio, the key metadata that accompanies the content is Who did the recording? On what device? Where the media was recorded and at what time.

Blockchain public ledger

We utilise the blockchain public ledger to store this recorded content on our server. The metadata and the storage URL are utilised to build genesis blockchain ID for the content. Simple javascript, Facebook or browser add-ins can certify the legitimacy of the content.

Comment is free, but facts are sacred. Citizens Journalist does not dictate opinions – it protects the facts.
