The Current Problem

Reimagining Citizen Journalism

As a planet and people we are hyper connected to the headlines. The United States alone has more than 3,000 news outlets. Worldwide, more than 18,000 newspapers are spread out across 100+ countries and every continent, including Antarctica. That doesn’t even include the zillions of video channels that are out there, along with social media scrolls, podcasts, and other forms of news and information that are literally at our fingertips 24 hours a day.

This is a global revolution — one that is wholly dedicated to truth, powered by Web 3.0, supported by DeFi, and delivered to you exclusively by TruthDAO.

Our Story

TruthDAO is a nonpartisan, bias-free, professional news organization built with community support and interaction through a decentralized DAO structure. Our members contribute story ideas, provide perspectives, engage in debate, and help us fulfill our mission to bring real, factual journalism back to the world.

We publish original journalism content produced by seasoned professionals. We support press freedom and push for a return to quality reporting, so that the news media, especially in the United States, can once again be a beacon of trust.

As newspaper icon Carl Bernstein, of

Watergate fame, has observed:

The lowest form of popular culture - lack of information, misinformation, disinformation, and a contempt for the truth or the reality of most people’s lives - has overrun real journalism. Today, ordinary Americans are being stuffed with garbage.
