Make the internet trustworthy again!
The Problem with the Internet
The internet is only several decades old, yet it already has become the primary source of information for much of humanity. While we would like to rely on the internet for reliable facts, much of the information taken from the internet has to be viewed skeptically. After all, anyone can publish anything on the web. The amount of information (and misinformation) the internet contains is growing daily. How can anyone sift through it all and learn the truth? How can we know what to trust?
Scitru exists to solve the problem of trust on the internet, by extending the way people naturally determine trustworthiness. In the real world, we each have a core of people who we trust after repeated demonstrations of honest: friends, family, teachers, and colleagues. When those people tell us someone else is trustworthy, our trust transfers to them.
With Scitru, you can rate people you know online as trustworthy. Those people rate people you don’t know. Scitru uses your personal trust network to determine how trustworthy you should consider everyone online. This differs enormously from existing aggregate trust systems like upvotes or five-star averages, because your personal trust network only includes the people you trust. No more trusting anonymous internet users with hidden motives.
Let’s work together to make the internet trustworthy.
