News publishers are challenged to surrender their content and reputation to play by the new rules of the digital era on how news and information is produced, displayed, prioritized and monetized.
It is hard to function as quality press by providing curated content against the flood of unsafe, poor quality, often fake news generated on social media.
A pivot from text to visual-based news content demanded by the readers requires massive investments in tech and staff which only huge outlets can bear.
Declining revenue from the duopoly-dominated advertising market and monetization struggles of digital content have put a performance pressure on publishers.
Our aim is to decentralize the production of visual news content by creating the ReportR platform and to help publishers address their key problems.
Publishers can setup a request for a photo or video of a specific subject by geotargeting online reporters and defining the location of the selected topic
Request based user generated content submitted by multiple users is the cheapest and fastest way for receiving various recordings of a required subject
Publishers can select the best quality option of the submitted contents and they can enhance future quality selections by evaluating active users
By using ReportR’s smartphone application user generated content can easly be monatized while the in-app solutions secure the legality of the content
Publishers need to hire less staff and buy less equipment while they pay a fair price to the freelance smartphone users per piece of selected content
The selected content is protected by blockchain technology which guarantees its safety and reliability, also filtering out illegal, unauthorised copies
Users upload visual news content
Freelance content producers shooting and selling photos and videos
Media ordering and buying photo and video content to publish then on their news
Operators pay with tokens
Anonym content producers can only capture visual content using the ReportR app, while verified content producers can also use their own production gear. Both are doublechecked with reverse search engine.
Location of image creation, image hash, timestamp, tags and author identity stored in blockchain using non-fungible tokens, which guarantees protection of intellectual property.
Legal declaration of the content provider if the photo or video shows a specific person and he or she obtained the neccessary permission for the publication unless it is not required under the regulation applicable to public figures.
