Background // Journalism is facing a severe funding crisis. With traditional business models collapsing, news outlets are now feverishly testing new subscription and business models alongside with advertising schemes. When it comes to keep doing public service journalism – being not commercially viable anymore – they increasingly depend on alternative and innovative funding models. This is where Blockchain comes in.


Blockchaining journalism // Blockchain optimists proclaim that the technology holds the key to liberate journalism from the clutches of populism and greed for profit, making it more democratic, independent and credible. From decentralized content platforms where journalists get paid directly by the readers to curation markets providing independent fact-checking in lockstep with funding – ideas are manifold. But can Blockchain deliver on these promises? Will Blockchain solve media’s “billionaire problem”? And might journalists really own their living thanks to blockchain one day?


Let’s debate // The GIZ Blockchain Lab in collaboration with Deutsche Welle Akademie seeks to create synergies between the know-how of tech experts as well as the expertise of media professionals and researchers with dedicated interest in media viability. The aim of the meetup is to provide participants with in-depth understanding of the main challenges in funding independent journalism and explore the opportunities Blockchain offers in terms of alternative revenue models.


Pizza and drinks will be provided!
