OATH’s dispute resolution protocol is modeled on the common-law jury system and utilizes blockchain, cryptographic algorithms, random algorithms associated with categories and attributes, jurors’ credit level, and case-tracking technology. OATH is building a decentralized, standard, and extensible public chain-agnostic protocol that protects dApp users’ rights and assets. Blockchain Security should have two different layers: Technology and Governance. So far, we have only focused on information technology security, like ‘anti-hacking’ or ‘code review.’ But Blockchain Governance is just as (if not more) important because every user needs it from time to time. OATH Protocol encourages users from different communities to join us and becomes part of our OATH Jury to help with chain governance and dApp dispute resolution. TRUST All key data, such as the contract and relevant evidence, is hashed into the blockchain to establish a permanent, immutable record. CONFIDENTIALITY The jury members’ identities are kept confidential through cryptographic techniques to ensure objectivity and immunity from external influence. DYNAMICITY OATH’s dynamic allocation algorithm reduces the odds of the same jury members resolving multiple disputes to avoid collusion. FAIRNESS OATH’s categorized random algorithm, designed for reducing bias, selects jurors with diverse backgrounds to ensure fairness. INCENTIVE OATH’s credit level system and token mechanism work together to evaluate and motivate the jurors. AUTONOMY Both parties to the contract may set the details of the dispute resolution process they agree to be bound by. TRANSPARENCY Once the dispute is resolved, the jury’s votes and stated reasons therefor are disclosed to the community. ARCHIVE The contracts and dispute resolution results are encrypted and saved on the OATH Chain for future reference.
