Frankli is powered by OpenOrigins, a technology company based in London, United Kingdom.
OpenOrigins was founded by Dr. Mansoor Ahmed-Rengers, during his PhD at Cambridge University. At OpenOrigins, we believe that the lack of a provenance infrastructure is threatening trust online. OpenOrigins' Global Trust Layer can help alleviate this issue by proving the origin of all content online.
Frankli is the first platform developed on this Trust Layer infrastructure. We use this technology to verify every single piece of content on our platform.
That is how we know that everything you see on Frankli is verifiably unedited, undoctored, unfaked... and human.
