i was wondering is there is an open standard (smart-contract based) which could be used in community-based rating systems.
The prime example for what I call a “rating system” is stack exchange:
Users give up or down votes and thereby “rate” the validity of answers … in stack exchange the validity is re-inforced by the person who asks the question, but in a smart-contract system the validity could be generated based on some smart contract rules aswell.
This general system of course can apply to many different web applications, so if one wants to use
a smart-contract based version of lets say the “stack exchange rating system”, it does not have be done from scratch.
My question: is there an open standard for smart-contract based implementations of such a system, and if not, wouldnt it make sense to create such an open standard? Developers don’t have to implement such a system from scratch, but can rather customize the existing standard for their own specific app needs?
