Since I’m a big fan of MaidSafe myself, and am really looking forward to a more decentralized, secure, and privacy-friendly Internet, I wanted to share this information with anyone at MaidSafe who might be interested in this topic.
Currently Martti Malmi (first dev after Satoshi) and myself are working on Identifi , a decentralized and privacy-friendly alternative to identity management and/or centralized parties who handle our reputation (especially in the future… I’ve seen some pretty scary promo videos of the year 2020 thus far). It is currently in its alpha phase .
We believe that Identifi solves Sybil attacks on the Web of Trust (read: online trust among humans) through
white-listing, identifier verification, rating, and reputational incentive (== financial incentive).
All of this without using Bitcoin’s blockchain, though it is a fork of the Bitcoin daemon. This means that it does use Bitcoin’s crypto, CLI, etc.
Since I don’t want to be advertising Identifi itself too much over here (I could talk about it for hours), and am here to explain how we think Sybil attacks on WoTs can be solved, I’m now willing to answer any of your questions!
