Abstract: Fake news on Social Media has become widespread with branching of technology over various domains and its accessibility to the general public being a major concern. Social Media hoaxes have become the new trend to gather popularity and fan base. Block chain based voting application is one such solution which is capable of curbing fake news by adapting a decentralized voting system in which knowledgeable and sound voters analyze percent of veracity behind a particular news given to vote and accordingly caste their vote on the decentralized application which in turn generates a result providing information about which news in circulation tends to be fake and which does not.
