PressCoin is a new cryptoinfrastructure that fundamentally redesigns how to create, design, fund, market, and deliver journalism and news.
PressCoin protocols are designed to capture the economic value of each interaction – from specific ones such as creating content for investigative reportage, or running exit polls, or elections focus groups, to general ones such as moderating comments, or raking a politician. This decentralized value is captured for each user, be it a producer, or consumer or distributor and allows them to be compensated in real money via the PressCoin cryptocurrency. More importantly, PressCoin platforms reward producers (journalists, citizens, NGOs, local news organizations, and local businesses) significantly with revenue and real asset ownership of the PressCoin ecosystem. This creates a sustainable foundation for independent journalism – making free press possible – by enabling true independence – financial independence, while richly rewarding investors.
