TruSet Beta Easter Egg Report

Do TruSet validators check the data or guess?

As part of our Beta test, TruSet wanted to see whether validators would pay attention to the details of data proposals, or just guess at the likely responses of their peers.

As one test of this behavior, we put five deliberate mistakes into our seeded data proposals. These easter eggs were obviously false data, but buried at various depths in fields within otherwise sincere proposals. We hoped that validators would be paying close attention, spot the mistakes, and co-ordinate on rejecting them. So, how did our community do?

We’re pleased to announce that the community validated perfectly! Not only were all five easter eggs found and overwhelmingly rejected, in four cases validators used the Comments feature to point out the mistake, and in all five cases correct data was proposed and accepted to replace the incorrect TruSet proposals.
