Build with a decentralized, composable and scalable system of record for points

Trackable actions

Points allow developers to create an incentive mechanism to attract, engage and retain end users. They accrue based on verifiable activities. Making a purchase, following a specific handle, completing a trade, having an account for a specific period of time — these are all measurable actions that may be calculated as points.

Value weighted interpretations

Points represent an interpretation of actions with value assigned by app developers or systems. A single activity may have different value to different systems. A Gitcoin Passport stamp, for example, may be weighted in one way to calculate a proof-of-humanity score but interpreted differently for an alternative purpose, like a follower leaderboard.

Incentive Mechanisms

Points can significantly influence behavior by offering value back to users in exchange for activity that supports the primary objectives of the project. Games use points — often multiple versions of them — and they're becoming more widely used across a range of product types.

Rewards & Reputation

Points can accrue over time, helping to signal to users what actions are most valuable to a project. Loyalty programs can reward users with points for ongoing engagement. Reputation systems (think Reddit karma) can also signal to other users that someone has contributed verifiable value.

Ceramic offers the first decentralized data ledger with the scale, composability and trust guarantees needed to be a system of record for points and events.


Decentralized data storage

Decentralizing events and point data removes the single point of failure risk, and allows users to place significantly more trust in the way a project is calculating and storing points.


Accurate & trustworthy

Leaning on verifiable events data allows developers to accurately measure and reward actions that contribute to their project’s success, and helps to limit exploitation of their point system.


Reference activity across projects

The ability to reference point data from other projects unlocks one of the core promises of web3: composability. Projects can share actions that may act as sources for points, or be used in algorithms that compute points. This radically increases the value of points programs across the ecosystem.


Purpose-built infrastructure

Data ledgers must offer strong verifiability and composability, but unlike asset ledgers, they don’t have to protect against double spend. This means they can scale to handle an exponentially greater number of data transactions than asset transactions, offering the perfect solution for the decentralized hosting of points data. Ceramic makes this possible.

Implementation Variations

Some development teams choose to save the signed payloads from attestations and verifiable credentials to Ceramic, while others leverage the native qualities of Ceramic to create verifiable claims.
