Repcoin: The Only Reputation Market
Matthew Ritter
Dartmouth TR2015-782

Abstract: With the internet taking over as a one-stop shop for information, finding credible material is becoming difficult. People look increasingly to the web to satisfy their questions along with their professional and entertainment needs. For the content seeker, the right content can be hard to find. Forums are cluttered with unreliable answers, entertainment sites overflow with mediocre artists, and professional searches yield countless novices. For the content creator, building a credible online presence is also difficult. Bloggers and professionals can be drowned out by similar candidates. Repcoin attempts to alleviate problems for both the content creator and the content seeker with a one-stop shop for user credibility. Repcoin uses a market to facilitate consolidated and reliable reputation, hoping to make it easier for strong content providers to get discovered and for content seekers to find what they want. I will discuss Repcoin’s market approach to reputation compared to its competitors, its user experience, and its technical architecture. Finally, I will discuss Repcoin’s successes, failures, and possible next steps.
