Isegoria’s mission is to create an uncensored, blockchain-based, decentralized news and entertainment platform with a funding mechanism for independent media.


Independent media is being purged from social media platforms at an alarming rate. Facebook has been banning pages with millions of fans and followers for no stated reason. Twitter has already been shadow banning content creators for years but is now outright banning dissenting voices from its platform. YouTube is deleting channels without warning on a regular basis. Meanwhile, mainstream media is becoming increasingly consolidated and centralized. In the 1990s, around 50 corporations owned all the media in the US, whereas now only 6 corporations control 90% of all media in the United States. There is an illusion of a free marketplace for ideas and debate in American and Global Media, when in fact powerful platforms are deciding which thoughts, ideas and messages the public will be allowed to hear, discuss and debate.

Ben Swann multi-award winning investigative journalist and Chief Executive Officer of Isegoria.


Spearheaded by multi-award winning investigative journalist Ben Swann, whose social following is nearing 1,000,000 subscribers. Mr. Swann has created content that has reached hundreds of millions of viewers. Isegoria will be a collaboration of independent journalists and entertainers. Isegoria will have two parts: Part 1 is the 24 hour streaming platform and Part 2 is the treasury that funds independent creators.

  • Nearly 50% of all registered voters in the US did not vote in the last Presidential election.
  • Only 52% of the country is registered as a Republican or Democrat.
  • Millions of people in the US no longer identify as Republican or Democrat.
  • US media continues to act as political extensions of these parties.

The market has never been more primed for independent news, information and entertainment. Ben Swann has consistently proven the interest in this content over the past 5 years through his fearless and thorough investigations. In 2016 Reality Check w/ Ben Swann had over 110 million video views on Facebook alone.


A rare market gap has opened. Over the past 20 years, cable news has become increasingly polarized. The largest cable networks only attract a few million viewers each day and yet have incredible influence over American politics and culture. When Fox News launched in 1996, it took advantage of a massive market gap of millions of conservatives who had no source for news and information that reflected their values. Today, there is a similar market gap among independent, libertarian and free-thinking Americans. Isegoria will be a larger platform than a cable or streaming channel. Isegoria will compete with Facebook’s news feed and YouTube’s channel system where currently a massive purge is underway to remove dissenting voices. Collectively, those voices have tens of millions of subscribers and yet there is currently no central hub where those channels can come together. With the advent of blockchain technology, we now have the ability to create a platform immune to the sweeping censorship seen today. This is a once in a generation opportunity to create a next-level media company that combines the power of blockchain with YouTube’s channel choices, Facebook’s news feed and streaming news and entertainment.


Isegoria will consist of three major verticals.


  • Programmed 24/7 streaming channel
  • News, docudrama, video podcast and entertainment programming.
  • Lineup varies day to day and season to season as in a traditional cable or streaming lineup.
  • Content for live TV curated from channels. This vertical will look like a streaming cable or “over the top channel” such as VICE.


  • Platform for independent channels.
  • Channels will be populated with content currently being purged from other platforms.
  • Channels will be responsible for producing their own content.
  • Isegoria may pay content creators to make content exclusive to their platform.
  • Voting rights for consumers move content from channels to the live lineup.
  • This will allow the ISE platform to compete with YouTube and Facebook as platforms for content.


  • Independent journalists and content creators who are not large enough to have enough ongoing content to populate a channel will have access to a treasury system.
  • One-off projects can be pitched and voted on by the community. These projects can and will, at times, move to the live TV schedule.
  • They will collectively be placed on their own Indie channel under “ISE-Quality.”
  • This will combat the issue of independent media being unable to find a funding mechanism and will help to combat entities like
  • Media Matters for America as they attempt to cut off advertisers to indie journalists.



This platform will take shape as an “Over the Top Player” available on Roku, Apple tv, PlayStation VUE, Sling TV, Direct TV Now, Samsung TV, etc.


The Isegoria platform will also exist on mobile devices as a stand alone app that gives users access to ISE Live TV as well as Channel and Treasury content.


ISE will also exist as a website which will curate written content and stream the live TV as well Channel and Treasury content.



Isegoria will produce a nightly newscast which covers news of the day, breaking news and provides high level understanding of current affairs from an independent perspective.


Isegoria will partner with production companies to create half-hour and hour-long episodic content in a docu-drama (VICE style). These shows will cover freedom issues, technology, blockchain and cryptocurrency as well as activist movements.


Not all of the content on the Isegoria platform and channel will come from Isegoria and its team. Our treasury will fund projects from other independent media groups and individuals who are doing good work but cannot find content funding.


Investing in Media, Creators and Consumers

Isegoria will have a cryptocurrency rewards system built into the platform that will reward journalists and entertainers who create high-quality and engaging content, as well as the users who engage in the content. This will be the first truly “responsive” media company as our users will have “voting rights” to pick what content is covered and investigated.

The rewards system will be divided into four as follows:






Isegoria’s Treasury will be a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) that will allow independent journalists to submit proposals to request funding for their projects. There will be a small fee, priced in our Isegoria tokens, that will be required to submit a proposal. Once the project has been submitted, the Isegoria token holders will be given the chance to vote on the project. If the project is funded, the requested amount of Isegoria tokens will be released to the proposal owner to create the content.  Once the content has been created, it will have the chance to be featured on Isegoria’s 24-hour streaming platform: ISE LIVE
