Project: “Sibyl”: Non-Computable Facts – Answer Crowdsourcing & Work Management with Blockchains


My goal is to create s framework for distributed work and human resource management using the user-created HumanEvaluate function, a function created to source content from distributed contributors, leveraging blockchain transactions to compensate contributors and maintain work provenance.

Summary of Results

An implementable architecture for distributed work and worker management has been designed. The current design leverages the most current and stable standards and protocols. Sibyl is intended to evolve through smart contracts and Wolfram Language–enabled cloud infrastructure.

Future Work

Where The DAO promised a generalize solution for the concept of “VC,” Sibyl is meant to allow a modern organization to scale exponentially, to start. Future work will include validating the design and using smart contracts for internal processes, deploying HD wallets transparently to Yoga+ application users and automating smart contract curation and associated dApp/web apps.
