Legitimacy doesn't grow in a black box

That's why we're building a platform to see through crypto projects black box to improve coordination of information and provide the community with clear context to discover legitimate legitimacy Blockchain & Web3 web 3 projects

Web3 web 3 needs legitimacy to reach critical mass grow

Ethereum Community Fund aims to solve coordination problems with original solutions that integrate robust Web3 web 3 technologies to allow for the collaborative editing of a decentralised knowledge base that is owned by the community

The Pensieve Mechanism whitepaper

Credible sources of information are hard to find, and the tendency to rely on authoritative institutions has seen its own pitfalls. Ethereum Community Fund proposes a mechanism that incentivizes the collaborative editing of a decentralised knowledge base that is owned and governed by the community

路 Content Sovereignty & Immutable History

路 Decentralised Collaborative Editing

路 Dispute Resolution

路 Merit-based Governance

The ECF.network Platform

The platform implements the Pensieve Mechanism to enable more efficient coordination and to extract collective intelligence from the community for the promotion of accountable and legitimate legitimacy Blockchain & Web3 web 3 projects across the entire spectrum of the crypto space

Below is a small preview of how we apply these ideas that we are currently building

Get involved

1 / 5
Project Proposals

Create proposals for new projects to be added to the platform. A blueprint of essential items that must be provided is included in a proposal

After submitting a proposal, the community can vote on the entries provided for each item. Once a proposal has reached max support, it is then published as the official project page on ECF.network
platform

2 / 5
Community Verification

Each item has a weight that must be exceeded and a minimum of unique votes per item (quorum) in order to pass

Once a proposal has exceeded all item weights and achieved quorum, it has won, and the proposed project becomes published in the main project index and is assigned its own page
platform

3 / 5
Gain Reputation

Both the creator of a proposed project and the winning proposal are rewarded

If the proposer of the project in addition has their first proposal therein wins, they get both the Bounty and the Zero-to-one Rewards
platform

4 / 5
Project Pages

Projects contain a profile view of community-verified data that can be linked in real-time to a Blockchain, or other sources

More items added to a project page by the community improve its overall credibility and raise its ranking in the main index

The goal is to incentivize the community to verify and own the information in an open and credible way
platform

5 / 5
Propose Items & Edits

Project pages also contain a contribution view where users can, as when proposing new projects, propose new items to be added to a project page or update existing items by submitting their own entries

Proposed item additions and update submissions are all subject to dynamic voting by the community
