Lets write a template,
Topics to cover in the template, feel free to add to these.
- Elevator Pitch
- Graph, nodes and edges
- Giving Cred
- Receiving Cred
- Weight System
- Distribution of Grain (X Token)
** side note I don’t think it’s necessary to cover gaming the system in this doc. Ideally SC, or the communities that use them, are game resistant and handle any that comes up. Important, but not the place.
The SourceCred Guide to Community Empowerment
“SourceCred is a tool for governance, but not a replacement for governance”
-Dandelion Mańe, SourceCred Founder
______ is powered by the SourceCred graph. We, the ______ community, build our own personal version of SourceCred that is tailored to our specific wants and needs. It represents Decentralized Autonomous Value.
______ community can be modeled as a sum of our connections. Each connection you make to another human is recorded in the graph, tailoring your rewards to your engagement, and vice versa, others rewards to your (and the rest of the communities) engagement. To do this, SC created a specialized algorithm.
Enter Cred! But first…
How can you possibly assign a score to a person?
How can you assign value to a person?
Easy, WE don’t, YOU do.
The same systems Siri uses to listen and understand you is used in SourceCred to calculate your Cred score. Thousands/millions of balancing actions occur behind the graph to get you your number. This number, known as a Cred score, is your little percentage of the ______ community.
Giving and Receiving Cred
Rule 1: Cred is never lost.
Rule 2: There are no rules.
Cred is costless, inflationary, and intrinsic. That’s what makes it great. Cred is shareable. When you give Cred you do not lose Cred. instead you mint more Cred to give. Give Cred, and you’re more likely to get Cred in return.
SourceCred uses weights to measure how much Cred you want to give.
These are ______'s weights:
: 16 Cred
, , , etc… : 1 Cred
: 4 Cred
Pull Request : 16 Cred
PR Review : 1 Cred
This means reacting witn Discord with is worse 16x all other emojis.
Distribution of Grain (X Token)
All of SourceCred’s effort gives us percentages. Percentages of the token that is distributed to each member. ______ can use these to dish out ______ token. SourceCred provides us with what members have earned over this week and over all time. This can be deemed a verifiable fair distribution.
Stream of consciousness writeup. Tear me apart, I can take it.
That’s the only way this will make any sense to the majority.
