We have created a mathematical algorithm that uses graph theory to analyze this big data and assign each message in the system a credibility rating, and authors — a reputation rating, which are calculated by a complex scheme based on the number of confirmations and denials, the authors' scientific weight, their reputation, and many other factors. The algorithm is completely transparent and will be visible to all users of the system. Everyone will know the rules of the game and will be able to check them at any time.
Anyone can become an author, but not necessarily. One can be just a reader and without authorisation use the system to either quickly see the veracity of any information and the reputation of any author, add a comment, or go deeper into reading the evidence, refutations and versions.
Thus, CyberPravda rating, of course, does not claim to be the supreme truth, but as close to it as possible, being inherently a reflection of the social consensus on any discussed topic.
What's the bottom line?
The bottom line is that CyberPravda is completely changing the world we live in! People are using the truth rating to clarify important to them issues from whether global warming really exists to whether a certain kind of product is of good quality or whether the existence of dark matter is credible to whether the kindergarten in their neighbourhood is any good. And millions of other topics.
There is an accumulation of reputation (ratings) for those people or companies who mainly write the truth and provide evidence. The reputations of the authors of the fakes remain at zero or lower. The credibility (truth) rating of any events, news and statements is formed out of a multitude of opinions.
The whole world is competing for CyberPravda ratings. News agencies, product manufacturers, bloggers, restaurants, clinics, common people are all involved in building up their own reputations, which are stored securely on the blockchain.
Quite quickly, publishing any news item without a rating on CyberPravda becomes a direct indication that the news item is likely to be a fake. Goods and services with a good truth rating are sold much better. Television stations with CyberPravda ratings of their stories get a bigger audience. Telling the truth becomes not only easy and pleasant, but also profitable.
And that's it — welcome to the new world and the new Internet 3.0!
An internet where people don't just compete for likes, they compete for reputation. An internet where you don't have to dig through tons of information to get to the truth, and the truth is always there!
