Ontology in the Media

Cointelegraph — “Decentralized credit scores: How can blockchain tech change ratings”

“From DeFi to decentralized credit rating, the blockchain industry has brought security and efficiency to the financial world. Although decentralized credit rating is in its early stages, even with the advancements already made, there’s no doubt about its growth into an even better assessment tool in the future.” 

Based on DID technology, Ontology has built a complete on-chain reputation scoring system. The ONT ID identity framework verifies multiple trust credentials, evaluates the user’s behavior and reputation, generates real scores, and gives users on-chain convenience. Combined with DeFi, SocialFi and other products, users with higher reputation scores are more likely to gain the trust of other users; they can also get discounts when participating in lending.
