Jay Zalowitz, an experienced founder in the media space, observed a modern news environment in which centralized platforms with weak fact-checking procedures dominated our news environment.
Along with his co-founder Aly, he founded Ramblist as a decentralized news platform in which news articles are crowdsourced, vetted by algorithms alongside third parties. Journalists, editors, and other workers are remunerated according to their contribution to these articles.
HUMAN Protocol awarded a $50k grant to fund the integration of our work-request API into the platform to support their news request call. Upon successful integration, HUMAN will award further funding to power the settlement mechanism of their platform and provide a float to remunerate the first round of contributors.

Mark and Robin founded DataUnion, a DataUnion-as-a-Service platform as the building blocks to creating a new decentralized, democratized data ecosystem. They create infrastructure to allow organisations, companies and individuals to come together to create DataUnions and allow all parties involved to benefit from the value created. This allows all industries and types of data to benefit from a shared value approach.
DataUnion creates data sets with thousands of contributions from hundreds of individuals. This requires fast and efficient validation of the quality of each contribution. The Human Grants Program is providing blueprints and funds to allow DataUnion to create a Reputation Oracle System. This system will keep track of the quality of contributors’ submissions whilst automating the QA process for the data sets.
