santi.eth 🐋👽: 100+ retweets and 100k+ impressions of the tweet. usually the stuff i care about doesn’t get the attention i’d like. this is not the case, we are striking a chord and the time to advance further on proof of personhood is here. global democracy and universal income require it.

Divya Siddarth: read our work on arXiv! identity is one of our most fundamental human attributes - and yet, it's being commodified & centralized. subjective PoP approaches are crucial in countering this, and in building towards post-capitalist & democratic governance. @santisiri @_paulaberman

ΞWoki; Aligner of Public/Private Good Incentives: This "proof of personhood" paper by @democracyearth is LEET! Seriously, this is a trail map for anyone building anti-sybil systems. I may even use it as a sybil-protection roadmap for rounds 8 - 18!

🟢: @niloufar_s Digital identity, esp. a robust system to protect against sock puppetry on the social web, and sybil attacks in distributed networks, that—importantly—is also privacy preserving. It's a critical issue that remains unsolved for. But there is some progress https://arxiv.org/abs/2008.05300
