So, I’m looking for some feedback and potential support for a concept I think would benefit the Ethereum ecosystem. Due to the complexities and possibilities associated with such system, I will do my best to provide more of a high-level overview rather than a technical paper.
TLDR: An Ethereum platform for personalized ENS avatar URLs that update based on real-time reputation scores.
Here’s what I’m thinking—We, as a community develop a set of reputation algorithms, which collect relevant data about users’ activities, interactions, and contributions within the Ethereum ecosystem. This can include on-chain transactions, sc interactions, community engagement, voting/governance participation, in addition to negative interactions, such as spamming activities, inactivity, etc.
Individuals, organizations, dapps and dwebsites can easily create their own URLs, designed to be used as ENS avatars. These avatars would serve as dynamic visual representations of their reputation.
Here’s how—the reputation smart contract continuously monitors events and calculates reputation scores based on user activities and contributions within the Ethereum network, and as reputation scores change, the content of the URL is automatically updated to reflect the latest reputation status.
Ultimately, users would gain advantages from a visual representation that is easily identifiable and continuously updated, reflecting the reputation of all parties within the Ethereum ecosystem. If executed correctly, this would promote trust, transparency, and credibility within the Ethereum community as is… but most importantly, this could hold the potential for integration into the indexing of decentralized search engines, shaping the future of search on Ethereum.
What are your initial impressions of this concept? I recently checked blockscan’s search engine and it’s pretty useless IMO. No offense to anyone. I just didn’t find value in it. Are there any other similar projects?
Also, are there individuals interested in collaborating with me to further flesh this out and possibly develop a MVP? I have expertise in contract development and front-end. With the right support, I believe we can have a simple prototype in a couple of weeks… however, the big challenge I see in developing the complete system is the distributed storage and parsing of extensive data volumes…any thoughts on this? The rep algorithms will be tricky as well, especially when it comes to abuse prevention, but I’m more concerned about significant amount of data we’ll need to store and process.
Thank you for reading.
