Detailed Description

Update

Oximity's mission is to re-engineer the news industry entirely by providing a substantive and significantly improved alternative to traditional news media as a mainstream news provider.

Oximity has a simple yet powerful system for collecting, organizing and disseminating news.

- Oximity authenticates individuals as Approved Writers - verifying they are who they say they are. - Individuals write news about events occurring around them or organizations they belong to. - All such news is aggregated on the Oximity platform, which provides tools for discovery, customization, translation and communication, to both writers and readers of news. - Users contextualize the news - by providing further information, and/or different perspectives. - Readers 'curate' the news, deciding what is newsworthy, fact-based, transparent, and high quality. They also share the news across the internet on social media, blogs, etc. - Oximity’s algorithms capture all user feedback, and provide a high-quality reading experience customized to each reader whether they start on Oximity, or find the news content via search engines or social media.
