RE: AskSteemit #2: What Smart Media Token would you want to create?

in #asksteemit4 years ago

Idea: A peer-review token to create anonymous reputation based identities on top of Steemit users. As a system to test a level of proficiency on a subject by a user creating databases of questions and tests for accreditation inside the platform.


Wow, this is really great. The reputation system here could definitely require some fine-tuning or addition!

After reading the paper, I see many problems but the advantages seem to be giving agency to projects being built on top of steemit, by specializing the communities and interaction with already existing APIs that benefit Steemit without integrating them directly into the platform.

Suppose a person has Ph.D. and has no skin in the platform. Just by verifying their credentials in the real world, one could reward a type of reputation that allows them to contribute questions or to curate questions. Even if he's on steemit or not.

Four main advantages:

  1. The current user interface of steemit is not ideal to present questions (something you are experimenting on, with the AskSteemit initiative)
  2. A voluntary leveling system, based on merit, separated from the social aspect but funded by it.
  3. Dapp interaction with other API's be it blockchains or not.
  4. Allowing users to explore other lines of interests, without them spreading too much in their profiles.

An awesome use case this one!
