We all know how major of a problem fake news is, and with ethereum becoming so powerful and popular, we thought why not combine it?
What it does
Prevents fake news by targeting people with specialized skill set who are in a position to judge more about fake news articles, give their opinion on it and get paid for it
How we built it
Using solidity with Remix IDE browser, Metmask chrome extension, JS for linking the backend and front end.
Used a lot of fake ether coins
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Writing our first end to end working Dapp along with hosting it on ipfs
What we learned
If a contract has a function to send ether to some account, then make sure that contract address has money in it
What's next for NewsTruth
Lots! Fetch the result data and display it on front end as we didnt get time to do it, Add a timer functionality which keeps track of articles voted in an hour and wont give a user more time to vote accordingly
