OATH Protocol (OATH) Protocol - ICO Review, Rating and Details of OATH Protocol ICO (Token Sale) - Rating: Gamble

OATH is building a decentralized, standard, and extensible public chain-agnostic protocol that protects dApp users’ rights and assets. OATH’s dispute resolution protocol is modeled on the common-law jury system and utilizes blockchain, cryptographic algorithms, random algorithms associated with categories and attributes, jurors’ credit level, and case-tracking technology.

Features & Highlights

  • Proof of common sense: OATH Protocol introduces a new consensus mechanism, Proof of common sense. It is not used by nodes to confirm the on-chain data. Instead, it is a consensus mechanism that is used within the OATH jury community.
  • Blockchain Security: A fair, robust, transparent, and extensible blockchain governance protocol can greatly improve the reliability of dApps and blockchain.
  • Quick and Efficient: In the event of a dispute, OATH dispute resolution cases can be generated automatically if signed and confirmed by any party, with no dditional process required.
  • Justice and Fairness: OATH takes advantage of the transparency and reliability of the blockchain to make sure that the contents of each case cannot be modified or deleted. It also helps keep the jurors’ identities are kept in strict confidence to preserve objectivity and prevent external influence. In addition, OATH algorithms ensure that jurors selected
    for each case are from diverse backgrounds.
  • Manageable cost: Users will deposit OATH tokens to facilitate the dispute resolution plan in their smart
    contract, which will serve as the arbitration fee for disputed cases. If the contract is successfully executed, the deposit will be returned to both parties without any additional cost. In the event of a dispute, the arbitration fee will be awarded to the
    jurors who correctly choose the prevailing party.  
  • Effective execution: When constructing a smart contract, both parties may set a default compensation
    plan in advance. In the event of a dispute, once the results are confirmed by both parties (or neither party objects), OATH will automatically send the result back to the smart contract, and it will automatically execute based on the the rules originally defined by both parties. 
  • Trackable cases: OATH will encrypt the contents of smart contract disputes and store them in the
    OATH blockchain. This will create an immutable case record and increase the security of smart contracts, allowing jurors and other interested parties to review the previously decided case verdicts at any time.
