To allow dApps to gather unbiased information, it is important for the entire Curator ecosystem that the quality of the contributions and reviews is safeguarded. Decentralised reputation scoring plays a crucial role in this. This will help dApps built on Curator to eliminate spam, faulty, and low-quality contributions.
When a new user joins, they automatically start with a neutral reputation score and gain or lose reputation in different expertises or verticals by participating in a dApp. Reputation scores are saved in a personalised Soulbound NFT.
User Reputation Building
Users can obtain a more specialised status (i.e., Reviewer). To achieve this, they need to make a certain number of qualitative contributions that got accepted by one or multiple other users.
Gaining or Losing Reputation
A built-up reputation score can tumble back down in case the user delivers bad data input. The impact of a rejected contribution will be higher compared to the impact of an accepted one (fault tolerance).
This leads to downward pressure on the user's reputation score. Users with a low reputation score will eventually be ignored by the dApp.
