Completing new financing operation, DIRT’s founder Yin Wu mentioned in an interview that the protocol which is called DIRT will be started in the next three to four months, along with a token that will lie in the fundament of ethereum standard ERC-20.
Wu indicated that the main objective of the protocol is to function as a platform where third-party decentralized application (dapp) creators can establish what is called a token curated registry (TRC). It is a concept to the way in which Wikipedia utilizes the society to update, change and confirm its information. Basically a TRC is an allocated data list concentrated on some theme and question that permits users to offer and confirm what information should be on the list, using tokens to elect and supporting stances.
