At Blockchain News, we adamantly care about being precise and lucid with our words, headlines, and URLs and understand that words have power and act accordingly. Blockchain News writers must verify the information they gather and write at all times, including data such as names, locations, factual statements, and accounts related to the content.
Blockchain News writers are in charge of doing their own fact-checking using their own judgment and information under the light of our Ethics Policy. Blockchain News is prepared and ready to use fact-checkers if need be. We are committed to transparency of sources, transparency of funding, and being open to reasonable criticism and corrections in our news organization. We check the information with all related parties before publishing it online.
If we receive a complaint about the fact-checking on our website, we first contact the source of the claim for further elaboration and supporting information. We also contact individuals and organizations who would have more information about or have relevant experience on the subject at hand, as well as researching relevant literature (news articles, scientific and medical journal articles, books, interview transcripts, statistical sources) that has bearing on the topic.
Depending upon the nature and complexity of the topic, other members of the editorial staff may contribute additional research and changes to the writers’ work, and the final product will pass through the hands of our editors. Any piece that is not deemed up to our standards by one or more editors is subject to further revision and review before being released for publication.
