[Wikimedia-l] Validbook idea in a nutshell. Looking for a public discussion.
I am looking for a public feedback/discussion on Validbook idea. Although
Validbook is not wiki project, I am looking for feedback here as in spirit
and in governance model Validbook is similar to Wikimedia projects.
My original email about Validbook  to this mailing list contained a bit
too much of everything. I hope this email contains the right amount of
details and will trigger an interesting discussion.
In a nutshell Validbook idea is simple:
- create service that allows to create Self-Sovereign Identities
- create service that allows these SSIs to prove that they uniquely
represent human individuals in a digital world
- create Kudos (tokens with daily supply 1 token per 1 living human
(7.5B KDS/day in 2018)
- distribute all daily Kudos only between SSIs that proved to uniquely
represent human individual - thus creating huge continuous incentive for
people to participate in Kudos distribution and support Validbook Services
right from the start (*solving common killer of "big ideas" – the
- use Kudos for development and support of *human-centric* Validbook
Services (low-engaging non-addictive social networking service; end-to-end
encrypted email service; digital signatures service, wallet for
self-sovereign money, etc); as a result create leading implementation,
"killer application" for Self-Sovereign Identity idea, DIDs and
Verifiable Credentials specifications, that will provide pressure and
motivation for governments and organizations to coalesce around it, leading
to widespread adoption of SSI, end-to-end encryption, self-sovereign money,
and ultimately to more freedom and more protection of human rights.
This all might sound as something too grandiose and futuristic, but I
cannot find a reason why it cannot be done. Maybe someone can point me to
