Was thinking how this is cool as “Proof of Contribution” vs “Proof of Work” in Bitcoin. Then it dawned on me… what if the data that your cred is based on disappears?
What if a repo is deleted or a Discourse forum shut down in favor of something else like Keybase or Discord? Or more trivially, what if someone deletes a post that is the anchor for a high value thread? What if a core user just deletes their profile, and with it, all their data and posts? Would that change the underlying data and thus make SourceCred retroactively adjust the Cred of everyone who interacted with the data (user or post) that is now gone?
