Become a journalist on Civil.

Civil is a self-governing marketplace, where readers directly sponsor journalists, and journalists collaboratively run their own publications, called Newsrooms. Using blockchain technology and cryptoeconomics, Civil is kickstarting a new collaborative model for the production and distribution of news..

The Civil platform will focus on local, policy and investigative reporting led by our First Fleet, a diverse group of 200 top-tier journalists across 30 self-directed Newsrooms. Civil is bootstrapping these initial Newsrooms with pre-sale CVL tokens and $1,000,000 in grant funding, not to mention substantial logistical support to get started.

Complete our First Fleet application to be considered. Note that incomplete applications will not be evaluated.
