Fact-Checking Policy

Blockchain News strives for accurate headlines and applies a rigorous vetting process to every news article on the site. Blockchain is what fuels cryptocurrency and we are very careful with what we print from a news perspective. We make clear what is sponsored and what is not and we refuse to take ‘dump and pump’ clients of blockchain projects that are not sufficiently backed with both a solid team and a product that works.

Rumours and insider reports are identified accordingly to ensure a distinction between confirmed information and industry buzz that is of interest to our readers.

Before any article is written, we ensure the information is new and accurate. Blockchain News verifies sources and always dig down to the original source (and reference material if applicable) before the writing process begins. Even if other outlets report an unsubstantiated piece of news as official confirmation, we require 100 per cent confirmation to claim it’s actually confirmation. Blockchain News does not post clickbait. Our headlines might be bold and sometimes daring – but we don’t throw out broad statements just to ‘sound’ bold. It has to be fact-checked for accuracy. Our articles don’t just report the news, we provide industry-leading context that explains why blockchain technology is important to you.

Blockchain News contributors and editors often report from the latest reports from technology events and will do more as it looks as if most events will be virtual for some time into the future due to the pandemic. Blockchain News contributors come from diverse backgrounds in technology and business management and are brought together by a passion for all things blockchain and related technologies with the goal of providing educational and important content possible for visitors to our site.

Checking For Official Comments

Anytime Blockchain News covers a rumour or leak or announcement from non-official sources (from BitcoinTalk, Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, YouTube channels, and other social media (as well as untested publications, etc.) we reach out to reliable blockchain sources in the industry for accuracy. We do our best to ensure everyone has an opportunity to weigh-in. Our writers and editors are industry veterans – and make sure every new article has the latest info, the most accurate info, and all relevant details.

At Blockchain News we follow basic Canadian journalism principles but have global relationships and a massive blockchain network that we value tremendously.

Fitting the Blocks

Blockchain News stresses the importance of research and objectivity in our news articles – as well as presenting a clear argument (and when drawing out a conclusion or theory, considering and including relevant counter-arguments) in our Op-Eds.

This approach allows us to address more possibilities and answer questions before they’re asked by readers.
