@ftechene I wonder how they ensure that every account is held by a unique human? The closest thing - tying accounts to phone numbers - obliterates their requirement for anonymity and introduces an economic barrier to entry. Obligatory biometric implants? I’m confused. :)

@amberella It goes through the web of trust. You must be certified by 5 certified accounts (every 2 years IIRC). There are several rules for preventing fraud like the rule of distance preventing accounts to be certified by random accounts... but I am not very familiar with them. More of the theory here : duniter.org/en/theoretical/

@ftechene yeah WoT relies on centralized CAs, creating a decentralized version via reputation tracking (& a blockchain apparently) is an interesting challenge. Cheers :)
