Community and Service Provider
OpenLeaks will not accept or publish documents on its own platform, but rather create many "digital dropboxes" for its community members, each adapted to the specific needs of their members so that they can provide a safe and trusted leaking option for whistleblowers.
They are concentrating on making the process of submitting leaks safe and easy, thus they do not focus on review or publishing (the other parts of the leaking process). That will be done by members of their community: NGOs, media, independent organizations, and more. These participants will be diverse in nature and in regionality, coming from all over the globe in later phases.
The split between submission and publication of leaked documents makes the whole process safer for all who participate in it, and at the same time makes scaling so much easier. Watch our video, which explains this concept visually.
