Forbes to publish stories on the Ethereum blockchain

The media company is partnering with Civil, a blockchain marketplace for journalism, to upload some of its content onto the Civil network. Forbes will initially upload cryptocurrency content, but the broad goal is to migrate all of its published content onto Civil and the Ethereum blockchain. According to Civil, its network "lowers the startup cost for media organizations committed to producing ethical journalism and allow them to plug directly into a larger network of potential supporters." Media publications using Civil can pay journalists with its native cryptocurrency, CVL. (Source: Axios)
