Decentralized Assessment System

Decentralized Assessment System (DAS) is a peer review platform and blockchain protocol for the evaluation of intellectual capital, research, and innovation.
The system works for the assessment of knowledge-intensive assets. It provides a framework for the evaluation of assets such as scientific research or deep tech innovation and can be used to identify the most promising and impactful assets for further decision making.

How It Works

Continuous peer-review crowdsourcing
The core idea of the assessment is to continuously review contribution by people with similar competences as the producers of the asset.
Curation of review
To increase the accuracy of the evaluation we introduce a second layer of assessment, which is basically an open assessment of the review.
Quantitative quality indicator
The result of the review process a continuous log of structured data points is formalized by an algorithm in a metric reflecting the quality of an asset.

Decentralized Assessment System implements best practices from contemporary academia

Decentralized Assessment System broadens perspectives on quality innovation, while also focusing on the levers that lead to quality outcomes. This matters because research, development, and innovation are increasingly diverse in terms of contribution. The DAS system can handle this diversity and quantity for better quality assurance.

Merit-based multidimensional reputation

The model is designed to enable the traceability of quality and create an incentive for assessors to contribute fairly. Expertise is a quantitative grade of reputation and track record of the participant in a particular domain in the system. The more Expertise a reviewer possesses, the more influence on assessment the review has.

Why Blockchain

Since the assessment protocol is blockchain-based, it is transparent and eliminates middlemen who otherwise would be needed to govern and validate the proper execution of the rules. Moreover, it provides high reliability and interoperability of the system. Therefore all the results of the assessment can be verified with the cryptographical proof of each contribution.
