Fake News Detection in Social Media using Blockchain


Blockchain technology has opened the gate of creating decentralized applications, where security is a big concern. Here, any transaction ever held is recorded permanently. Over the years, some non-reputable sources have been publishing fake and attractive news stories. Due to the lack of any regulatory systems, this news cannot be verified. Hence, these unreliable sources can publish whatever they want, and even in some cases, it makes chaos in society. In recent times due to the ease in internet availability and social media, inappropriate news can spread more quickly than ever before. In some cases, fake news is more attractive than the real one. Thus, people become misguided. Using the advantages of Blockchain\'s peer-to-peer network concepts, we will discuss a way to detect fake news in social media.
