About OATH PROTOCOL

Blockchain Security should have two layers: cybersecurity and governance. Although the focus tends to be on cybersecurity (anti-hacking, code review, etc.), regular users encounter conflicts/disputes more often than security hacks in their day-to-day usage, making governance just as important as, and covering more areas than cybersecurity.  This is even more true in a decentralized ecosystem that does not (or should not) have centralized arbitration services.

Presently, a decentralized, transparent, and fair dispute resolution system with no conflict of interests is the most important missing piece for blockchain.

Modeled on the common law jury system, Oath Protocol combines one of the most reliable legal systems from the real world with blockchain technology, cryptography, computing algorithms, game theory reputation system, and other concepts to provide a layer 2 cross-chain infrastructure along with supporting technologies for a decentralized, standard, and extensible public chain-agnostic protocol that protects dApp users’ rights and assets.

Features

  • Decentralized community decisionmaking: Oath Protocol relies on regular blockchain users to form its juror community and decide cases, initially with juries ranging from 11-101 jurors. Jurors do not need to hold OATH tokens to qualify for juries (no staking), therefore eliminating concentration of power and potential for improper control of the platform. Larger juries (min 11 jurors) also more accurately represent community consensus and ensure decentralized decisionmaking.
  • Semi-decentralized voting process: only two transactions take place on-chain (and require gas fees to record): initiation of the case and recording of the case result. The evidence submission, jurors’ questions to the parties, and voting take place off-chain, facilitating more robust case participation by the jurors and eliminating gas fees associated with fully on-chain voting.
  • Layer 2 protocol: as an infrastructure layer, Oath Protocol does have to deal with the potential difficulty of enforcing the decision rendered by the jury.  When chains or dApps use a smart contract that incorporates Oath Protocol as the standard dispute resolution mechanism, once the case is decided, the outcome is returned to the smart contract, which then self-executes.
  • Algorithms and safeguards to ensure fairness: Oath's dynamic allocation algorithm reduces the odds of the same jury members resolving multiple disputes to avoid collusion.  Oath's categorized random algorithm, designed for reducing bias, selects jurors with diverse backgrounds to ensure fairness. The jury members’ identities are kept confidential through cryptographic techniques to ensure objectivity and immunity from external influence.
  • Compatibility with any public chains or dApps: via APIs, Oath Protocol is compatible with any chains or dApps, and our smart contract template library (with templates that address a variety of use cases and come with built-in Oath dispute resolution and governance protocol) allows for easy integration.
  • Credit level system and data analytics: Oath Protocol's credit level system and token reward mechanism incentivize good-faith decisionmaking and protect the ecosystem from bots and bad actors. Oath Protocol will also collect and analyze data relating to jurors’ behavior to enable our selection algorithms to accurately select the best group of jurors for cases. Through our combination of the credit level and juror data, Oath can provide the best and most reliable arbitration services for all kinds of use cases.
  • Scalability and tiers: Because users are not required to have specialized expertise to become jurors, the jury community can grow significantly. Using the credit level system, Oath can accurately assess the jurors’ decisionmaking reputation. For complex or high-impact cases, Oath will be able to select top-tier jurors with the highest credit level. For simplest cases, Oath may use a broader juror pool, with no minimum credit level requirement.
  • Transparency: OATH saves all key data, as well as the jurors’ votes and stated reasons therefor, on the blockchain to create an immutable and searchable record.

OATH PROTOCOL Interviews

Yin Xu
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
Co-founder and CEO of OATH Protocol, we started this project since Feb 2018 with Wil , Hongwei, and Jenny.
What do you think about idea?
Unique but necessary. A good governance system is the most important missing piece in blockchain. What OATH is trying to do is a standard, decentralized, and fair governance and dispute resolution services. OATH provides a layer 2 cross-chain infrastructure that can be built into dApps and public chains to deliver a seamless experience for all the users.

Blockchain Security should have two layers: cybersecurity and governance. Although the focus tends to be on cybersecurity (anti-hacking, code review, etc.), regular users encounter conflicts/disputes more often than security hacks in their day-to-day usage, making governance just as important as, and covering more areas than cybersecurity. This is even more true in a decentralized ecosystem that does not (or should not) have centralized arbitration services.

What do you think about idea?
amazing!original in choice of subject
and also very interesting
can help me progress a lot
cant wait for seeing it pop up online
Jia Tian
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
As an advisor, i give Oaths Protocol advices about token model, financing, community and technical designs.
What do you think about idea?
The Oaths Protocol took a novel approach to solve the hard problem of onchain governance, different from tezos or daico. I think Oaths’s effort is worth exploring, bridging the gap between the wild west and a modern and civilized metropolis on the infrastructure of blockchain.
Xiahong Lin
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
I will be the advisor in this project, help the Oath protocol to build the first cross-chain underlying security Protocol of blockchain infrastructure, committed to dispute arbitration on the blockchain, and achieved decentralization, improving the system and governance Protocol missing in the underlying security of blockchain, and protecting users' rights and property.
What do you think about idea?
When it comes to blockchain, one word has to be mentioned - community. Any good public chain should have an ecologically sound community. I believes that dispute resolution on the blockchain is a very important role in the whole system, but many blockchain projects cannot achieve perfect decentralization at this moment. Therefore, blockchain needs a set of general, regularized protocols of arbitration and division of rights and responsibilities to jointly maintain the organic development of the community.
David Hong
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
As a legal practitioner at one of the largest and most prestigious global law firms based in China, I advise Oath on their dispute resolution protocol.
What do you think about idea?
I think the idea is great for governance and dispute resolution. Existing consensus algorithms are intended to make major decisions; however, sometimes I just want to get my money back because my package was damaged. Oath provides a cost and effort effective method for resolving small disputes using the concept of the traditional jury system. It may not make sense for handling large commercial disputes, but that's why we have commercial arbitration centers. Oath is intended to resolve disputes for a peer-to-peer marketplace in a decentralized community based manner.
Zainan Zhou
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
I am an product and technical advisor for the project. I offers advices about the product and technical direction for the project.
What do you think about idea?
I think the idea is essential for the ecosystem. In particular, Oath provides a link between virtual blockchain world to the real world.

OATH PROTOCOL Reviews

primei.co
review

Strength and Opportunities:
OATH, unlike some competitors, is blockchain agnostic. This means the success of the OATH protocol is not dependent on the success of a particular public blockchain.
OATH is serving a need that arises based on the emergence of the internet of value and blockchain based business relationships. Once smart contracts get more popular dispute resolution inevitably will become necessary. If OATH can build a user-friendly and highly functional product there is a good chance that the market will adopt it given the fact it is one of the first dispute management solutions.
OATH was able to present a number of partnerships with already established blockchain projects. Besides NEM OATH also announced a partnership with QuarkChain, a blockchain with a distinctive approach towards using sharding technology. QuarkChain is currently among the top 150 cryptocurrencies valued by market capitalization. OATH plans to leverage the communities of their partners for recruiting jurors and for leveraging their own community strength.
Weaknesses and Threats:
OATH is not the only protocol focussed on dispute resolution. Kleros is an alternative blockchain based dispute resolution solution. The Kleros team is already for various years in the space and recently got featured on Epicenter.tv episode 250, where they introduced the team and the concept. OATH does not count with significant distinctive features compared to Kleros in the basic dispute resolution model. OATH tries to serve a big number of use cases. While it may compete with Kleros for traditional dispute resolution, it will compete with Augur, when it comes to verify outcomes of oracle services. At the same time it will compete with Aragon for delivering the best public chain governance solution. This represents a broad number of use cases that are very different from each other. It will be hard for OATH to provide a product that can serve all these use cases very well. On the other hand, none of the mentioned competitors has yet achieved a dominant position. Furthermore, OATH may not need to become the best platform in every market that it serves for the purpose of becoming a flourishing dispute resolution protocol.
Verdict:
The idea presented by OATH protocol is very intriguing, since it solves a problem that the algorithms that run behind the smart contracts of public blockchains can’t solve. OATH may not be the first or the only dispute resolution platform, but their team, investors and white paper are compelling
