Denver Post Ex-Employees To Start Blockchain Newspaper Colorado Sun

Today, it was announced that a group ox ex-employees of the known diary the Denver Sun, will collaborate to release a new kind of newsletter, one that has their articles and news locked in a blockchain ledger, tentatively called the Colorado Sun. This after facing disagreements around the editorial management of the publication with a new owner, according to an article published by The New York Times.
The Denver Post is one of the most traditional journals in the USA, being founded in 1892 by Democrats looking to popularize democrat ideals. But his purpose was lost on the way. The diary was sold in 2010 to the Alden Global Capital hedge fund, and since then, the journalist and the owners had constant disagreements about the editorial policy of the newspaper. Till the bubble burst.
The journalists went all out and criticized frontally the way that the diary was managed by their current owner in the opinion section of the same diary. The layoffs were almost immediate. But the journalists had an ace under their sleeve to keep making news for the people of Colorado. Larry Ryckman, a former senior editor, and a team of more than 5 journalists had been in talks with Civil, a blockchain startup that defines itself as a decentralized marketplace for sustainable journalism, to launch a new newsletter in the same spirit of the Denver times: The Colorado Sun.
Civil is owned by Consensys, a Canada-based blockchain company that is owned by none other than Joseph Lubin, co-founder of the second most known cryptocurrency: Ethereum, and its platform is based and runs on the ethereum network.
Civil has collaborated with other companies such as Blockclub Chicago, the River, and Sludge, and it aims to have more than 1,000 independent newsletters all across the country. Civil will absorb the initial costs of the establishment of the Colorado Sun, and then, the diary will try to sustain itself with its own profits. Apart from this, the Colorado Sun has also a started a Kickstarter initiative to raise some additional funds for its establishment.
