There is no one truth in History. There are simply too many gaps throughout the history of civilization. Opposing sides of war write or rewrite history. Leaving the past open for manipulation and misinformation for those in need. The allowance for any one person, group of people, or government to manipulate, obscured, or delete historical accounts facilitates ignorance and hinders the advancement of civilization.
Fast forward to the present day and everyone knows that governments and companies with monopolies over media outlets manipulate, suppress and censorship the information to meet their intended goals not only historical
Until recently it was merely a dream to have an accurate source of information without manipulation from the governments, individuals, or corporations. It was too difficult or outright impossible for individual or corporation to stay safe from persecutions or attacks on their personal integrity.
Luckily we do not live in this old world any longer. Not only are people around the world more and more concerned about the manipulation through news outlets but are also looking for alternative trustworthy sources for the information.
It is technology that makes the difference:
Newspaper, radios, and TV are not the only source of information. With the rise of the internet users now are able to not only access any kind of information but also directly upload the happenings across the world. Without restriction, censorship or persecution.
Internet coverage is everywhere. The Internet can be accessed from anywhere.
Data is forever. With the rise of the internet, it became almost impossible to delete the data that has been uploaded. Almost. However, with the recent development of blockchain technology, it became impossible to delete or alter the information that is uploaded. In particular blockchain technology allows keeping information that cannot be altered. It is much safer than books or any paper document that can be altered at any moment.
That is why we brought experts from around the world to combine their knowledge and build a system that would allow keeping historic data accurate and more importantly impossible to delete or alter it.
So we built Historia: A decentralized database committed to preserving the original account of global history. It allows anyone with clear proof of an accurate historical event to upload their case to the Historia for a review that will be analyzed by a diverse, globally distributed pool of voters.
Lastly, since much of the historical record of the world is debatable, the Historia team has chosen to focus on the additions of recent events, current events, or future history to our blockchain, and not try to rewrite the historical record again.
