WHAT IS TRUSTORY? Trustory is a social network to validate claims that people make online.
THE PROBLEM The internet is open and permissionless. That means (in theory) anyone can say anything they want and it can be accessed by the rest of the world. This was fantastic when only a handful of media outlets could control what information reached the world. But we’ve already begun to see the costs of sacrificing trust for openness — Rampant amounts of misinformation being spread on the internet to the point of not being able to trust anything.
OUR SOLUTION We’re solving this through a social network where experts debate the authenticity of claims people make.
