Everest: detailed voting manual

Everest: a universal registry for crypto projects built on The Graph, that is curated by its members.

Everest depends on the community’s efforts to maintain an accurate and useful registry. If a project has inaccurate information or is being misrepresented, a registry member should challenge the listing. Members are encouraged to vote or delegate their votes to someone who will actively participate.

Anyone can add a project to Everest by paying a 10 DAI listing fee to the Reserve Bank. The listing fees are used to pay rewards for successful challenges and to pay for development and curation of the list.

Owners and delegates can challenge listings on behalf of their projects if they believe the listing is conveying fraudulent or inaccurate information.

Registry listings should only be challenged if there is reasonable belief that the project does not belong on the registry because of one ore more of the following reasons:

  1. The project details are inaccurate (eg. outdated information, broken links).
  2. The project’s categories or sub-categories are inaccurate.
  3. The project is being misrepresented (eg. inaccurate data, fraudulent information about the project details or activities).
  4. The project is not, in a broad sense, working toward decentralization.

A description of the dispute must be included in the challenge to ensure that voters have sufficient information about the claim. For example: “Website link is incorrect”, “Project owner is not a representative and refuses to transfer ownership”, “Project is in the wrong category”.

This is a detailed manual for voting in cases where project lists are challenged.

In order for you to participate in the voting, you need to add at least one project. You can read how to do this here: https://medium.com/@manmann/the-simple-guide-of-how-to-add-the-project-to-the-everest-platform-d379056e99c1

If you have already added a project, you can start.

Go to the project website http://everest.link/

First we need to find projects whose listing is challenged

Consider the voting process on the example of the PowerPool project

First of all, see the description of the dispute:

The description says that this project is repeated.

So let’s try to find a similar project:

Indeed, a similar project has already been added. You need to understand which project has been added earlier than the other

Since we have performed the sorting in such a way that recently added projects go first, it becomes clear which project is a duplicate

The description also says that Github is missing from the project information. This is true

We have made sure that the problems mentioned in the description do exist, now we can vote for project removal.
