The Basics

This documentation provides an overview of the basic steps needed to use the Coreto Decentralized Reputation System (DRS).
The DRS is built on the NEAR Protocol and provides a platform for measuring the TRUST and PERFORMANCE of users based on their actions on DRS enabled platforms and apps.
This guide assumes basic knowledge of blockchain technology, smart contracts, and API usage.


In order to get started, you'll need to perform the following steps:
  • Get a NEAR wallet
  • Add NEAR for gas
  • Get authorized as source
  • Map platform KPIs to TRUST and PERFORMANCE points

Get a NEAR wallet

A NEAR wallet is required in order to interact with the NEAR blockchain and the DRS smart contracts on the NEAR blockchain. You can create a NEAR wallet using the official NEAR Wallet or other compatible wallets and save the wallet's Private Key.
The platform wallet is your platform's on-chain point of access in order to write new reputation data to the DRS.

Add NEAR for gas

You'll need to add some NEAR tokens to your platform wallet in order to be used as gas for transaction fees on the NEAR blockchain when writing new reputation data to the DRS.

Get authorized as source

In order to write data to the DRS, you need to be authorized as a source. Contact the Coreto team in order to get your platform wallet added as an authorized source.

Map platform KPIs to TRUST and PERFORMANCE points

You'll need to define a set of key performance indicators (KPIs) that represent user actions on the platform. These KPIs can be mapped to TRUST and PERFORMANCE points, which are used to calculate a user's reputation score. Contact the Coreto team for support in how to choose the right KPIs from your platform.
Once you have gone through this process, you're ready to start making use of the system inside your platform.
