I agree with reviewer Chase P. observations, summary of this short article. This use of blockchain is new to me. The article lists some of the upside reasons for this business team-up, but it does not list concerns I have with means to track readers. Need to learn more on balance between the good goals versus the bad effects of its use.

This is a brief article highlighting the recent partnership between The Associated Press and blockchain startup Civil- which hopes to use the blockchain to compensate journalists using cryptocurrency as well as protect their intellectual property rights as content creators. This is the first big name outlet to partner with Civil and could open the floodgates for others outlets. The article gives enough context for someone new to this concept, but at the same time it could have gone much deeper than it did.

Interesting coverage of blockchain technology as an incentive for journalism to enter new markets and protect against piracy. Nothing biased in the article but there is room for more information on the potential negative affects.
