It is easy today to encounter a great number of educational institutions that either provide low-quality services or are fictitious. The DISCIPLINA project is being created specifically to prevent such institutions from appearing.
To do this, the project team will implement a Web of Trust (analogous to PGP) into the web protocol. Web of Trust will help system participants set their levels of trust in each other.
Thanks to the implementation of this protocol, DISCIPLINA will have no “verification centres” that have an unlimited right to register or, vice versa, refuse the registration of an educational institution.
This system will help recruiters understand which educational institutions are worth cooperating with and which are not. The value of the grade given to a student will depend on the rating of the educational institution at the time the grade was awarded. Thus, it will be easier for people to choose an educational institution, since they will rely on verified reviews and quality ratings.
To understand how participant rating is formed in DISCIPLINA, let’s imagine that several educational institutions (A, B and C) and recruiters (D and E) registered in the system.
A and B are reputable universities that recognize each others’ diplomas, which are highly evaluated by recruiter D. However, the diplomas of university C are only worth the trust of recruiter E.
To calculate the total rating, we need to choose participants whose reputation is undoubted - these are university A (a recognized leader in the field we are interested in) and recruiter D (a company that is famous for its demanding candidate selection). University B will be added to our web of trust automatically, while participants C and E will be considered as untrustworthy.
The reality is that it is difficult to forgo centralization even in a system such as blockchain. For example, in classical PoS models with compulsory delegation, the key organization is responsible for the entire community over a long period of time. Thus, the performance of the entire system depends on this organization, and not on the community.
The project team aspires to ensure real decentralization in the DISCIPLINA network. After the launch of MainNet they are planning to form a token technical pool that will prevent any stakeholder from having a large share (more than 50%).
The technical pool will be formed in such a way that the share of tokens from the total volume of token issue will be 45%, and this will be distributed between three independent organizations.
