Introducing Ground Truth Triples (GTT) to the Validation Queue

In an effort to ensure voting quality we are happy to roll out ground truth triples as an anti-gaming mechanism to the validation process.

How it works: Periodically while voting, a previously validated and high-confidence triple will be added to a user’s validation queue. If a validator encounters a ground truth triple and incorrectly validates it, their testnet points will be reduced. This process allows the protocol to quickly catch voters acting in bad faith and remove them from the validation process. Ground truth triples are indistinguishable from other triples and randomized in both frequency and predicate type.

If a user incorrectly votes on a ground truth triple they will be shown a popup immediately. Getting multiple ground truth triples wrong in a row will strongly impact testnet points and with enough failures performing further validations will be blocked.
