Currently this just assigns Cred based on posts on this forum. The rules are pretty simple–basically, every time someone s a post, that post earns some Cred, which flows to its author, the post it replied to, posts or topics it references, et cetera. Right now most of the Cred flows to people directly involved with the Radicle Foundation, but I imagine as the community grows and decentralizes it will start to flow more widely.
This instance will automatically update every day to reflect new activity on the forums. If the community wants, it’s possible to distribute RAD tokens through the forum. MakerDAO has been using a a SourceCred instance pointed at their own governance forums as a way of rewarding the valuable labor that goes into decentralized governance. For now though, I figured it’d just be cool to post this as an experiment and see what folks think.
