Our values

Knowing facts is essential

  • Without knowing the facts, we can’t make good decisions. Getting the facts right is crucial to survive and to succeed as an individual, as a company, and as a society.

How can we know if we got our facts right? While we might never know with absolute certainty if a statement about a fact is true or false, technology can greatly help us in making good judgments about these. FactsMission will help organizations and individuals adopt and use these technologies to their best.

Now is the time to act

On one hand, it was never more necessary, on the other hand we never had better technologies to achieve it.

The times when truth-relativism was a harmless academic gimmick or even an emancipating story of liberation are long gone. The idea that there is no truth is not only used by authoritarian regimes to dismiss the quest for objectivity as propaganda but is more and more corroding the foundation even of established democracies.

The good news is, that we now have the technologies that turn the web into a huge decentralized database with cryptographically ascertained authorities and which allow to express statements about facts in a concise and verifiable manner.
