another idea: let me easily stake my DAOs governance token on peoiple to bootstrap a web of trust around sybil resistence in my ecosystem
would need a way to dispute the anti-sybilness of people via Kleros-like mechanism (though not Kleros, bc I dont think it makes sense for Kleros governance token to govern my own dao’s sybil resistence)
I spent some time doing a Sybil-resistant DAO onboarder App using DAOHaus tooling, MolochV3, BrightID & some dev ideas borrowed from the Gitcoin passport team to implement on-chain credential verficiation. Here’s a demo
We would love to partake in building this opportunity!!
Currently exploring ideas to build our own frontend to Gitcoin Passport. Love the ideas above, love finding likeminded peeps. Sybil resistance will be the theme of 2023 and a holy grail of web3. We gotta make sure it stays open source. Love the idea of supermodular public good.
Another idea: Integrate “aliveness” into sybil resistance, e.g. a passport that expires and has to be renewed, or by adding aliveness-certifying POAPs / SBTs. Would help with reducing zombie accounts of dead people, reducing the payment of X-to-earn and UBI to people that no longer live.
lot of exciting ideas here, I have seen worldcoin for eg use zk tech to generate a hash which can be verified not sure of the exact details but if we can implement a sybil resistance protocol on chain where we create a hash based on a proof of a person and verify that on chain
“if we can implement a sybil resistance protocol on chain where we create a hash based on a proof of a [physical] person and verify that on chain” then we will be well down the road of reifying the corporeal at the expense of the informational person (mind), and so polluting the lived experience of everyone regimented by this innovation.
Sybil resistance matters ONLY when Sybil resistance matters: e.g. democratic process and wealth distribution. In many other contexts it’s both unnecessary and damaging to community, to society.
While we work towards Sybil resistance today, left unconstrained, we will find ourselves trying to engineer a way out of it by the end of this decade. And if you think engineering for Sybil resistance is hard, wait until you try to engineer out of it once it’s manifest.
