Blockchain can be used to guarantee trust. But there has not been a network specifically aiming at recording promises between people and the trust they share for things which are intangible.
What it does
It allows people to record their promises and gain/lose TRUST tokens based on their performance.
How I built it
Using the CosmosSDK.
Challenges I ran into
Didn't have enough time to complete the project. There were problems with the Vue.JS frontend not being so easy for modifications.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I managed to create the blockchain and do the basic interface with it. Creating promises works fine, confirming promises was almost done.
What I learned
I learned a lot about the framework, how blockchains work, and how we can easily interface with them.
What's next for TrustChain
Next is the functionality to keep promises, where the actual reward would be sent to the promise keeper. Also, managing disputes in the system.
