Architecture & Design

GotchaInsure is a decision protocol for a multipurpose court system able to solve every kind of dispute. It is an autonomous organization that works as a decentralized third party to arbitrate disputes in every kind of contract, from very simple to highly complex ones. Every step of the arbitration process (securing evidence, selecting arbiters, etc.) is fully automated. GotchaInsure does not rely on the honesty of a few individuals but on game-theoretical economic incentives. It is based on a fundamental insight from legal epistemology: a court is an epistemic engine, a tool for ferreting out the truth about events from a confusing array of clues. An arbiter (jury) follows a procedure where an input (evidence) is used to produce an output (decision) [Laudan, L. Truth, Error, and Criminal Law: An Essay in Legal Epistemology. Cambridge Studies in Philosophy and Law. Cambridge University Press, 2006.]. GotchaInsure leverages the technologies of crowdsourcing, blockchain and game theory to develop a justice system that produces true decisions in a secure and inexpensive way. []
