In order to make a zero-entry distributive enterprise platform free from fraud (such as people setting up fake sales sites that just take your money) - a robust authentification system should be created.
The most effective way for this is transparency - such that one's social capital is the proof of reputation.
Reputation may be obtained by participation in the OSE community, whether in development, conferences, build events, educational programs, or other ways. For this, a reputation system is desirable, starting with basic contributor profile and badges.
- Online reputation
- Product reviews on sales site
- Social network discussion
