Has anyone ever attempted or has anyone heard of a project attempting to decentralize Wikileaks?
Something where an anonymous user can submit any documents they want and it gets stored in a customized block chain where users can review anything they want. Everyone gets an inside view of what's going on in the world, information can only be redacted if the person submitting the documents chooses to do so, and no one is at fault for distributing the information. I think the hardest part would be developing a consensus algorithm that is able to filter false/misleading documents while validating real documents, but this seems to be a problem that has been receiving a ton of focus ATM (fake news). Horrible idea? Please let me know why or why not.
