🛄FrogPay Jury Dispute Management

For more complex dispute resolution, having an impartial, independent jury to provide a verdict may be helpful. The platform will randomly pick jurors from the juror pool and require them to vote after examining evidence and details. The protocol has mechanisms to resist Sybil attacks by random selection of jurors and staking mechanisms. Jurors will earn reputation points based on their verdict (majority vs minority). In the longer term, a negative reputation may result in a ban or reduced opportunities. This ensures jurors do proper due diligence and primarily provide judgment that concurs with other random and independent jurors.

JDM is a decentralized system consisting of a jury of N jurors, randomly selected from the jury pool.

To become a juror, the user must be staking $FRGP tokens and complete the proof of humanity ( see the section on Sybil resistance ).

The system follows Thomas Schelling's Shilling Point theory. Each jury member is anonymous and independent of the other. They will vote through a secret ballot to prevent the other jurors from being influenced by others. If a juror decides to abstain, they will be replaced by another random juror, up to 5 replacements.

To obtain a result in the dispute, a quorum must be reached under the following conditions:

  • Clear majority verdict to settle the dispute (1+ N/2 votes)

  • The majority abstained from triggering escalation to FrogPay Dispute Analyst

Incentive mechanism:

The juror fee will be distributed equally among all voting participants to incentivize independent juror participation.

With each decision, jurors will earn or lose reputation points. Jurors in the majority pool will earn reputation points and jurors in the minority opinion will lose reputation points.

Reputation points will be one of the critical factors in the selection of jurors. Jurors with reputation points below a threshold will lose their staked token and must re-stake and requalify. A pattern of negative reputation may earn a permanent disqualification from becoming a juror. This mechanism should disincentivize jurors to participate in many disputes with random voting.

Jurors who abstain will be replaced by other jurors without penalty or incentive.
