The Juri protocol
The Juri protocol is designed for applications that want to provide their users with incentives for maintaining healthy behaviours, where compliance with those behaviours can be computationally verified.
Exercising at an elevated heart rate, attending a yoga class, and getting seven hours of sleep are all the type of activities that can be verified as having taken place.
Juri enables incentives by facilitating ‘staking pools’, whereby members of a group are able to bet that they will comply with healthy behaviours. Those who comply with the goal receive rewards, while those who do not lose out.
Smart contracts on the blockchain act as the funds custodian and agreements ledger during the staking period, while a series of open source libraries running on Juri network nodes perform the verification of activities.
The protocol runs on top of Ethereum, an open-source, public, blockchain-based distributed computing platform and operating system.
