"Humans are naturally predisposed to both competition and collaboration...We just decided to put this on a blockchain"
Dylan Leighton, CTO Oracle-D

What we do

Oracle-D is a very unique and different kind of company. We use blockchain technology to engage clients with highly professional, smart and hard working people with a range of skillsets, who voluntarily choose to perform work on your behalf.

 

This work is often to do with building communities of real and engaged people, and usually takes the form of marketing and promoting a product, predominantly through the creation of provably unique, interesting and SEO rich content.

How it works

Very simply, because of the unusual and peculiar properties of the Steem blockchain, we are able to incentivise and reward our amazing content creators with the creation of new Steem cryptocurrency for their work.

We ask our clients to hold Steem and delegate the upvote power to us. This creates our own rewards pool, which we then use to create the environment where people choose to engage in friendly competition, in a constructive and supportive way.

 

We take care of everything, and our profits come from taking a small commission of the new cryptocurrency generated each time a post is made on your behalf.

Voluntaryism and incentivism

In our model, voluntaryists may be rewarded for their participation through the Steem blockchain with newly generated cryptocurrency, but it is not guaranteed that they will earn anything. So how does it work?

This works by tapping into the incentivist theory of psychology. It says that if you agree a rate for someone to do a piece of work (let's say, you offer them $20 to write a document), they will generally tend towards doing the least amount of work to ensure they satisfy the requirements to earn that money. And many businesses that employ people find that out for themselves quite regularly!

But what happens when you encourage people to compete for a rewards pool where they could earn a higher amount?

Some will choose not to bother, and others will set the bar high, and continually jump over it. These are the people we engage with.

We also incentivise them to support one another too, to freely help each other to thrive, to share and learn from one another, and to work together where appropriate.

 

This is the embodiment of positive capitalism and free-market economics, where both individuality and mutual collaboration are incentivised and rewarded.
