Problem: High stake courts are scary for users. A perfectly good actor could potentially lose 25 ETH (Ethfinex Court) because of a tiny mistake such as forgetting to upload their latest security audit document (4.1). This hampers Kleros’ adoption.
Solution: A platform which allows jurors/challengers to offer consultancy services via Kleros Escrow, such as mock trials. This lowers the risk for users and opens up more job opportunities for jurors.
- An experienced juror offers reviewing service for projects wanting to apply for Ethfinex badge (whether a project satisfies each policy criterion).
- An interested token project (client) opens up a Kleros escrow, promising to send the payment only if they agree with all the juror’s assessment.
- If the client disagrees with one or more assessment(s) of the juror and decided not to send the payment, the juror could challenge the decision and the mock trial begins.
- Jurors: more money to be made as long as the fee is higher than a coherent ruling payouts. Higher quality jurors could command a higher market price.
- Challengers: more users mean more submissions, more submissions mean more potential challenges.
- Users: less risk of being challenged.
- I’m not sure about the contract agreement in the escrow, but shouldn’t it be possible to emulate a mock trial?
- The escrow is handled by the general court, which means less domain expert jurors. Is it practical for each court to have their own escrow subcourt?
