Community Content

You see that the internet is fundamentally broken. You see a team who’s built a protocol to fix it. You see proof that it works because of a hedge fund called Numerai.

Starting with Erasure Bay, NMR can now be used to value knowledge through free-markets rather than centralized tech companies.

We recognize that many of you have been following Erasure for some time and have deep knowledge about the potential of #erasureworld. By creating content, you can help us fix the internet.

Here are some examples we really liked.

$NMR Analysis by Thibault Bonnivard

Numeraire needed to be created (you can’t burn DAI). As a result, it’s one of the most used token on Ethereum, with a nice growth trend of the stakes (about half a million dollars as of today). Staked amounts can’t be compared with traditional DeFi protocols such as Maker where people stake for a yield. Indeed, on Erasure, the money is at risk and stakers provide very valuable value.

Imagine these people could get out the real data, anonymously and with rewards for accuracy. Would that have helped stop the spread? Would that have helped other countries prepare and implement proper controls?

Undoubtedly yes.
