INDIE (Round 5)
INDIE PLATFORM is the technological interface of INDIE, a hub for highly qualified, independent, non-partisan new digital media outlets. It will offer the support to share and distribute news more efficiently to local, national and foreign independent journalists. It will also use new technology to provide innovative payment systems to monetize work and a blockchain based fact-checking tool.
Today a stream of digital media publications are emerging in every country. Many of these new media startups produce high quality journalism, but do not have the financial, organizational or technological skills to gain visibility, make a profit and grow. INDIE will support journalists and help them distribute high quality content through its platform.
