About this event


Join us live on Saturday, April 15, 2023.  See how the Ovis community is ending fake news by incentivizing the truth. Ovis is more than a platform, it is a movement where everyday people come together to determine what is news and ensure that information is trustworthy, verifiable and accountable.


We’ll also dive into how the business model of rating and clicks is destroying the public's trust in news and online information. This live event will show how Ovis is returning the power back to everyday people.
