Token Curated Lists for Trust and Reputation
A large amount of e-business and freelancing transactions is happening through centralised freelancing job boards, like Fiverr, Upwork and a few other incumbents. Such marketplaces dictate conditions, fees, money-retain policies, and among others reputation. No matter how vast your expertise is, once you join a platform you restart your profile from scratch, and the reputation is built inside someone else’s land. At any moment your account can be closed or your reputation score reset by a centralised action. This affects not only professional services but international trade and e-commerce as well. With the rise of blockchains, decentralised Self-Sovereign identities and smart contracts we envision that no central authority should be in the position to manipulate the reputation inside an ecosystem and reviews should be portable and verifiable. We envision GUILDS as a protocol suite and tools for a transparent, immutable and auditable reputation backed by a solid game theory.
