LETTER FROM THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
Everyone has a story to tell.
True Stars is a media brand that empowers voices shaping the future of art, digital media, and emerging tech. We are on a mission to discover authentic talent, amplify underrepresented voices, and support emerging and established creators through our online magazine and community.
It all started when I lost my crypto assets to a scammer. It was a devastating blow, and I needed to find a new way to monetize my skills online.
As a content creator for more than two years, I have been writing about web3 topics across multiple social media platforms such as Linkedin and Twitter. I looked at existing publishing options like Mirror, Substack, Patreon, and Ghost to begin monetizing my work, but they just didn’t cut it. That’s when I decided there was a clear need for a community-focused web3 publishing outlet for content creators.
The traditional media landscape is dominated by a small number of large corporations, and web2 social media giants have become the gatekeepers of digital content. As a result, many content creators have limited monetization options, and their work is often overshadowed by that of more established influencers with large followings.
We envision a world where all creators can pursue their passions, build their audiences, and achieve financial independence through their work.
It’s about empowering creators to share their ideas and connect with and grow their audience in a meaningful way. By creating a decentralized media network that amplifies underrepresented voices, True Stars aims to level the playing field.
It's not just about me and my story. True Stars is about giving a voice to all the people out there with something to say. And that’s what makes it more than just another magazine—it’s a movement. We want to make everyone a True Star.
Emily Carrig, Founder and Editor-in-Chief
