I’m saying that TCRs are a tough sell. The Kleros one is being gamed, and so is this one. I’m not arguing for profiteering. I’m just noting that profit and truth aren’t the same thing, and making them align is very very difficult.
You can’t just assert that it ‘does select for truth.’ You need to provide evidence. You showing me that the challenges were legit (and yet lost) is arguing my case for me.
I’m also claiming that the truly innovative part of Foam is POL, and that it can work very well without named points. All the people in this forum are focused on the map, but POL is the secret sauce.
Theoretically, sure there is value there in the TCR, but when the centralized solutions work so well (and they really do work well–billions of people use them to navigate each and every day), why try to reinvent the wheel when POL is actually new and requires a ton of its own energy? It makes no sense given limited budgets and team size.
