This claim doesn’t work. I have a feeling you’re like me. I was making this mistake too. You’re finding really niche claims because you’re so deep into crypto…
That claim is more of a hypothesis that can’t be empirically proven. Nevertheless, TruStory can validate claims even that can’t be empirically proven through consensus but still. This claim is a hypothesis with an embedded moral claim: “blockchain is not good for journalism.” the is not good for journalism part makes the claim not work.
The first part could work as a claim “CIVIL token sale failed” or “CIVIL token sale was failure” or "“CIVIL token sale failed to meet its funding goal” all could work, but again, make sure that the claim is found in the source and is not being interpreted or having interpretation added in paraphrasing a point.
Sorry if that was overwhelming. Does that make sense?
