Linton Johnson, founder of OVIS Media, aims to restore public trust in the media by incentivizing truth-telling and eliminating the ratings and click-driven business model. With a background in journalism, Johnson believes in the importance of free speech, civility, and having open conversations. OVIS News allows users to pitch story ideas and upvote them with tokens, which then pay journalists to write the stories. These stories must be fact-checked by at least three fact-checkers before being published, creating a system of accountability. By using blockchain technology, OVIS News gives small but important stories a platform, promoting a diverse range of perspectives and topics.
