Andreessen Horowitz-backed startup Arweave says its decentralized ‘permaweb’ is fighting coronavirus misinformation in China

An Andreessen Horowitz-backed startup has raised $22 million to fight coronavirus disinformation in China and the US. Here’s how Arweave tackles fake news and censorship.

Arweave is a Berlin startup that is building a decentralized internet archive that it calls its “permaweb.” This permaweb contains information from across the globe that Arweave says cannot be changed, thus bypassing censorship or disinformation. Arweave is backed by Andreessen Horowitz and says it is helping people in China accurately report on the coronavirus crisis.
