Short description: The TruBlo project aims to nurture and facilitate research on blockchain technology which will lead to more scalable blockchain-based solutions and applications, that will contribute to ensuring the exchange of trustworthy and reliable content on social networks and media. The objective of TruBlo Open Call 1 is to invite academic teams, researchers, SMEs and startups to define and implement small scale research projects on two related focus areas:
- Trust and reputation models on blockchains
This focus area targets innovative applications, technologies, technical approaches and methodologies that increase the levels of trust in blockchain-based information exchange, with emphasis on user generated content on the Internet and social media, considering also data from IoT infrastructures.
- Proof-of-validity and proof-of-location
This focus area is on innovative mechanisms to increase transparency and trustworthiness of user generated genuine content. The users, as being part of a blockchain, can apply additional verification mechanisms to increase transparency, validity and high level of trustworthiness, such as Proof- of-Location and Proof-of Validity.
