Hello everyone! I am new to this project and I have only recently submitted my profile to the registry, therefore I might be mistaken about how the whole challenge system works and I apologise in advance if my complain comes from a misunderstanding of the rules.
I cannot stand the fact that a simple typo in the address displayed by the human involves that the human loses all the deposit. At this point in time the deposit is 0.128 ETH, roughly 500 USD. Most of the people submitting live in areas such as Latin America where 500 USD is a LOT of money (and I am not including the price of the fees to be paid during the process…).
I understand those who argue that rules are clear or vouchers must be more careful but people commit mistakes: it’s part of being human after all, this is the fact that we want to verify in the first place. And I do not like the part in which challengers gain money from other humans’ mistakes.
We need a way to verify humanity without punishing humans to be “too much human”.
Why not lower the deposit by a little? 500 USD is too much for most of people, especially those that are approaching crypto for the first time.
If there is a mismatch between the address displayed and the address in the video, just verify that the video address is not already registered by an other account; classify the error as “human error” and give back 80% of the deposit to the human, 20% to the challenger.
Underline the risks of a bad submission more times during the process so that it’s very clear to people they have to check multiple times the addresses. I don’t think this is done enough.
Thanks for your time.
