Trive is a social science consensus engine that researches and clarifies facts through Human Swarmed crowd wisdom. We incent people to do primary research into news stories, compensate them with our own coin, Trive Coin, and hash/stash the results on the Block-Chain.
Trive creates a Nash Equilibrium incentive structure for the research into news story claims. An antaganistic relationship between researcher and verifier creates a checks/balances process that reinforces research quality.
Trive creates a feedback loop to media companies who monetize your attention. By reducing their revenue when they arenn't honest, we can send a strong signal that
"The truth is the truth no matter who speaks it."
Our mission is to eradicate fake news worldwide through alternative feedback mechanisms, incentivizing media to tell the truth. We also anticipate many traditional media fact-checking functions can be done faster and more efficiently using Trive .
