    Its brand used to spread fake news, Italian media outlet turns to blockchain

    ANSA will put the sources and history of 1,000 news stories a day on a publicly available blockchain, but bigger challenges lie ahead

    Reeling from its brand being used to spread fake stories, Italian media giant ANSA has launched a blockchain-based system so readers can track exactly where its journalism has come from. It says the tool allows anyone to verify sources behind an article—strengthening “bonds of trust between the organization and its readers and customers.”
