Abstract
Tri e™
solves the problem of fake news for our users for $1 a month.
Tri e™
is a social science consensus engine that researches and clarifies facts through
Human Swarmed crowd wisdom. We incent people to do primary research into news
stories, compensate them with our own coin, Trive Coin, and hash/stash the results on
the Block-Chain.
Trive

creates a
Nash Equilibrium
incentive structure for the research into news story
claims. An antaganistic relationship between researcher and verifier creates a
checks/balances process that reinforces research quality.
Trive

creates a feedback loop to media companies who monetize your attention. By
reducing their revenue when they aren t honest, we can send a strong signal that
͞
The truth is the truth no matter who speaks it

Wisdom of Crowds
The wisdom of crowds is the collective opinion of a group of individuals rather than
that of a single expert. A large group's aggregated answers to questions involving
quantity estimation, general world knowledge, and spatial reasoning has generally been
found to be as good as, and often better than, the answer given by any of the individuals
within the group.
Trial by jury can be understood as wisdom of the crowd, especially when compared to
the alternative, trial by a judge, the single expert. In politics, sometimes
sortition
(governance by a random sample) is held up as an example of what wisdom of the
crowd would look like. Decision-making would happen by a diverse group instead of by
a homogenous political group or party.
In the case of Trive
, Human Swarming
is the specific method we are using.

3. The three conditions for a group to be intelligent are diversity, independence,
and decentralization.
4. The best decisions are a product of disagreement and contest.
5. Too much communication can make the group as a whole less intelligent.
6. Information aggregation functionality is needed.
7. The right information needs to be delivered to the right people in the right
place, at the right time, and in the right way.
8. There is no need to chase the expert.
Additionally, in the online article
Digital Maoism

, Jaron Lanier argues that the collective
is more likely to be smart when:
1. It isn't defining its own questions.
2. The goodness of an answer can be evaluated by a simple result (such as a single
numeric value), and
3. The information system which informs the collective is filtered by a quality
control mechanism that relies on individuals to a hi...

How it works
To enforce system behavior and to prevent users from gaming the process, we ensure
that all participants are
pseudonymous
, that witnesses are assigned randomly, and that
no one can participate in the same game in more than one role.
Tri e™
has 5 types of players . Each player is pseudonanymous wallet with an
attached reputation score, no personally identifying information (pii) is ever collected.
Anonymity must be sacrosanct if we are to preserve the santicity of the Trive

process.

Consumers
who consume the news and send stories of interest to the
marketplace for Curators to find and research;

Curators
who bid on stories and publish lists of article claims with an incentive
to maximize profit, reduce research costs and deliver quality;

Researchers
who are incentivized to find and do...

Game Mechanics
Tri e™
seeks to establish a Nash Equilibrium among the game participants such that only by acting
within game boundaries are the participants rewarded for their labor. We also intend to create
antagonistic relationships between some participants to create a series of checks and balances to
reduce system gaming.
Each of these roles is pseudonymous
Tri e™
DAC (Distributed Autonomous Corporation) wallet with
a specific reputation score. As reputation events are registered and scores adjust, wallets come into
and out of compliance with each role. Each role inherits the rights of the role below it. Roles are
listed in order of increased functionality. Curator, Researcher, Verifier, Witness and Consumer.

Consumer
Consumer Process
Tri e™
begins with the Consumer.
As Consumers use the
Tri e™
Browser Plugin and interact with the web, they will come upon
stories with information they will find dubious. In cases where an actual answer is
determinable, i.e. did more people attend Donald J. Trumps inauguration than Obama's,
the consumer can submit the dubious URL to the
Tri e™
Story Marketplace for research. He
does this by submitting the URL, a stake of
Tri e™
tokens, and a maximum time to the
marketplace via our easy to use browser plugin/wallet. Until the story is opened by the
Curator, the consumer may stop staking the story and recover their funds.
On the marketplace side, the Stories are aggregated by unique URL (minus session IDs and
anchor tags) and the bounties accumulate. For each story the max times submitted are
averaged af...

the attendees felt about being there, absent an attendee verifiably saying something, is
opinion.
Once ALL the claims are validated, the Curator reviews the final document and closes it. The
system then broadcasts a need for close approval. It takes any 3 of 5 participants to approve
closing the case. The approvers are any members of the system, including consumers,
creating another positive reputation event for them, excluding anyone who has participated
in the research.
The timer for this stage of the process is very short, around 1 minute for an average article.
The approvers here are NOT reviewing the work for accuracy or completeness. They are
simply looking for garbage. Lorem Ipsum and other nonsense texts, spam, porn images and
links.
If the approver team rejects the work, the Curator suffers a negative reputation event and is
able to then try two more times to get the work approved. ...

Verifiers are paid 20% of the Researcher's claim. The Researcher, Verifier and Witness costs
are cumulative for the Curators, resulting in total cost of 125% of the researcher fee.
A Verifier, however, has the ability to capture the entire research bounty AND the verification
bounty if he believes and can prove that the Researcher is wrong.
To do so the Verifier uses the same tools the Researchers do to create their own version of
the research for this specific claim. Once they are done they open the Exception process. If
they are successful in their challenge, they will earn the Researcher's bounty, their usual
verification bounty, and a positive reputation event. If they are not successful in the
exception process, they will suffer a negative (or neutral?) reputation event.
