Fake News Predictor based on Ethereum Blockchain
Our hack is a fake news predictor based on Ethereum Blockchain. The users can either mark a post (a news article) as fake or genuine. They'll pay a token (bought using Ether) to do so and will be rewarded if their prediction matches the final outcome/result which will be determined based on the ratio of number of genuine to fake votes.
As fake news is a challenging problem which developers still aim to solve, this product is an effort geared towards the same.

Truffle init webpack gave us a headstart. It is a webpack project which includes contracts, migrations, tests, and user interface to create an application based on Ethereum Blockchain.
