Japanese newspaper joined Steemit / 西日本新聞 /니시닛폰신문

Hello, Steemit world!

The West Japan Daily (The Nishinippon Shimbun) has opened an account on Steemit and will start posting articles.

We are a newspaper company located in Fukuoka City, on the island of Kyushu in southern Japan, with a history of more than 140 years. In addition to our local news bureaus across Kyushu, we have bureaus in Tokyo and Osaka as well as international bureaus in Washington, D.C., Seoul, Busan, Beijing, and Bangkok.


Currently, online media advertisements are based on page views and are plagued by fake news, copied articles, and attention-grabbing headlines. The objective of our account is to research the economic value of news based on article quality and readers’evaluation.

Titled the “Your Special Mission News Crew”, this new journalism project launched in 2018 is driven by “investigative journalism on demand.” We gather news on personal and social issues in response to our readers’ requests, to aspire to improve this state of affairs through investigative journalism.

We will also explore the viability of how readers evaluate our articles and send us investigation requests via tokens, as well as research the potential of decentralized journalism, which remunerates readers for their contributions.

Our goal with Steemit is to explore the future of quality journalism.

We will distribute articles that will be highly rated and sought after by our readers.
Follow our account and witness our journey!

Hello, Steemit world.

西日本新聞(니시닛폰신문)은 Steemit에 계정을 개설하고 기사 배포를 시작합니다.

西日本新聞(니시닛폰신문)은 후쿠오카 시를 거점으로 하는 신문사로 140년 이상의 역사가 있습니다.
규슈 전역과 도쿄, 오사카, 서울, 부산, 워싱턴 DC, 북경, 방콕에도 취재 거점을 보유하고 있습니다.

현재, 온라인 미디어에서는 페이지뷰 수를 기초로 한 광고 모델이 널리 보급되어 있으며, 가짜 뉴스와 복사한 문장, 주의를 끄는 제목이 범람하고 있습니다. 이번의 기사 배포는 기사의 품질과 독자의 평가에 근거한 뉴스의 경제 가치에 대하여 연구하기 위한 것입니다.


저희들이 2018년부터 시작한 보도 기획 [당신의 특명취재반]은 [Investigative journalism on demand]를 테마로 활동하고 있습니다. 개인과 사회의 과제에 대하여 독자 의뢰에 대응하는 형태로 취재를 시작하고, 조사 보도를 통해 사태 개선을 목표로 노력하고 있습니다.

저희들은 토큰을 통한 조사 의뢰 접수와 기사 평가, 독자에 대한 공헌에도 보수를 분배하는 [분산형 저널리즘]의 가능성에 대해서도 연구를 진행해 가겠습니다.

Steemit에서의 검증을 통해 양질의 저널리즘의 미래를 개척하고자 합니다.

여러분들이 평가하고, 요구하는 기사를 배포해 가겠습니다.
저희들의 도전에 주목해 주십시오.


Hello, Steemit world.

西日本新聞はSteemitにアカウントを開設し、 記事の配信を始めます。



私たちが2018年からスタートした報道の企画「あなたの特命取材班」は、「Investigative journalism on demand」をテーマに活動しています。個人や社会の課題について読者の依頼に応える形で取材を始め、調査報道を通して事態の改善を目指す取り組みです。






This is good news. Hopefully other media outlets around the world will follow. This is what I meant with advertisers starting to flow into the attention economy.

Thank you VERY much @hitwill for resteeming this good news! Bring on the advertisers! It is going to be such a PHENOMENAL year for STEEM and STEEMIT! Well Deserved! It is so awesome! More and more individuals are realizing the power and potential of them both! Thanks Again! All the VERY best! Your Devoted Friend @extraterrestrial :-)

yeah,sir... if other media outlets around the world will follow the steemit,all of the member will get a good advantages...i support you,sir....
@follow you...
and also become a fan of you...

Thank you, @hitwill. As you say, Attention economy is a keyward in near future. Our team think that "attention" have a both good and bad sides in news ecosystem. Because strong (or fake) headline get more pageviews from us.

Thanks for joining Steemit @westjapandaily. I'm also new here as of yesterday but I can agree with @hitwill and @extraterrestrial that this platform needs to (and will ;) ) take over the main content producers and outreach methods. Thanks for being one of the trail blazers!

Don’t know what to think about this. Newspapers are dying...

Which is why it's good to see one branching out.

They're dying because they can't tell the truth because it harms the advertisers, who are the customers of newspapers.

I LOVE the idea of a viewer funded news organization.

Man, this SMT stuff has got to be giving the Establishment fits.

Eventually, But this is the reason they are now diversifying into the digital platform where users need not to buy paper products and use trees just to be able to spread awareness to mankind. It's what you call, "innovation".

Great news this is more integration into steem.

Great news!!! This sure will upgrade our knowledge base

This is big news! Especially keep your eyes on Smart Media Tokens, these will be a real boon for local businesses!

Yes, We need to learn SMT. Thank you!

Steemit JapanにMedia企業として初めてですので非常に楽しみにしています。これからも応援いたします。Resteemさせていただきます。
