I recently listened to your Superchain Eco podcast about Open Source Observer and Green Pill podcast about Hypercerts. I enjoyed listening and learned a lot from both podcasts, thank you for all the inspiration!
At 12:03 in the Green Pill podcast you said, “One of the areas that we’re most excited about is how you can go from not just about creating claims about impact and funding that impact… to having a decentralized, credibly neutral set of attestations or way of signaling what things are most impactful. Ultimately what we want to see is some kind of a three-sided marketplace where you have people creating impact, people funding impact, and then people verifying or signaling that that impact is real. The third part is the hardest piece but I'll say the one that's probably going to unlock the most value particularly for funders because then they can measure the impact that their funding has had and ultimately look at the ROI of that funding.”
The decentralized, credibly neutral set of attestations or way of signaling what things are most impactful that you described is exactly what our software enables. All of our code is open source, composable, and helps measure positive impact with onchain attestations from peers ranking each other’s contributions during fun events. I know you asked for no shilling in the original message so I won’t go into more detail here but just wanted to provide a bit of detail about how our work aligns with your goals to measure the impact of public goods creators on Optimism.
You can see details about how our tools can help accomplish your goals in the article below and feel free to reach out with any questions or comments :)
The Respect Game is a simple game that anyone can play to grow their community. This profoundly helpful consensus game is at the heart of Optimism Fractal and our work at Optimystics.
