IsItDebunked Ltd.

We started in 2020 with the concept to produce a more fact-based world by allowing users to come together to fact check in a decentralized way. Currently the world of media is utilized to push false narratives and fake news to the public and this is a major problem in today's society. We will change this, together.

About Us Debunk (DBNK) Token is being created as a utility token to reward users who contribute towards the fact-checking system which is being created via the blockchain, this will allow all information to be grouped together and if something has been debunked then it can be seen in the future and isn't purged if censorship goes to new levels.

We believe the news reports that are being brought out are not always legitimised by actual evidence and can sometimes be debunked and this puts large doubts into the minds of millions of people around the world

This then causes those who question the news reports to be deemed conspiracy theorists or other shameful name-calling. The issue is that when the information is debunked it doesn’t get the coverage it deserves and is sometimes still used by the fact-checkers as real correct information when this is not the case. This therefore means the information that is given to the public is not always correct and this must be changed in order for society to continue working efficiently.

There are many variants of social media platforms out there that allow users to discuss ideas between friends and share various things around the world. The problem with censorship also occurs though where the media company doesn’t agree with a user’s thinking or ideas and therefore remove the post and even sometimes go as far as restricting the user’s account. We deem this an issue as it can stop meaningful discussions and can in some occasions stop the truth from being shared. We just want to help bring truth to the world without bias reporting

 Blockchain has become known to be a well established way to transmit and secure data whilst being used financially to secure the transactions taking place across the network. We believe we could adapt this to ensure historical information is kept safely so that future generations have all the relevant information to go off in the future. Currently it is becoming more and more known that the information that is given out is not correct and it can become difficult to find the old information which debunked the news report.

Quotes about Fake News

“In this era of fake news and paid news artificial intelligence is more and more used as a political tool to manipulate and dictate common people, through big data, biometric data, and AI analysis of online profiles and behaviors in social media and smart phones. But the days are not far when AI will also control the politicians and the media too.” – Amit Ray

“But I’m ravenous for news, any kind of news; even if it’s false news, it must mean something.” – Margaret Atwood .

“Alternative facts and fake news are just other names for propaganda” – Johnny Corn

“Our understanding of what is really ‘newsworthy’ is a misunderstanding.” – Louis Yako

“When fake news isn’t completely fabricated, it typically distorts real-world information by tweaking or contorting it, mixing it with true information, and highlighting its most sensational and emotional elements. It then scales rapidly on social media and spreads faster than our ability to verify or debunk it. Once it spreads, it’s hard to put back in the bottle and even harder to clean up, even with a healthy dose of the truth.” – Sinan Aral (The Hype Machine: How Social Media Disrupts Our Elections, Our Economy, and Our Health–And How We Must Adapt)

“It is a fact increasingly manifest that presentation of real news has sharpened the minds and the judgment of men and women everywhere in these days of real public discussion. We Americans begin to know the difference between the truth on the one side and the falsehood on the other, no matter how often the falsehood is iterated and reiterated. Repetition does not transform a lie into a truth.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Lies sound like facts to those who’ve been conditioned to mis-recognize the truth.” - DaShanne Stokes
