Note: Smith + Crown serves as an advisor to Decentralized News Network.
Decentralized News Network aspires to be a decentralized, more democratic alternative to mainstream media outlets. The DNN token is primarily used by readers to access and interact with articles, and to compensate writers, reviewers, and publishers’ contributions. DNN tokens exchanged on the platform are pooled and distributed on a periodic basis among its users. The model also employs an on-chain ‘points’ system, using auditable but not tradable tokens that different user groups stake in exchange for token rewards. Samit Singh (CEO) and Dondrey Taylor (CTO) are the co-founders of Decentralized News Network.
