OATH: Blockchain Alternative Dispute Resolution Protocol


What is OATH? 

OATH’s dispute resolution protocol is modeled on the common-law jury system and utilizes blockchain, cryptographic algorithms, random algorithms associated with categories and attributes, jurors’ credit level, and case-tracking technology. OATH is building a decentralized, standard, and extensible public chain-agnostic protocol that protects dApp users’ rights and assets.


Blockchain Security should have two different layers: Technology and Governance. So far, we have only focused on information technology security, like ‘anti-hacking’ or ‘code review.’ But Blockchain Governance is just as (if not more) important because every user needs it from time to time. OATH Protocol encourages users from different communities to join us and becomes part of our OATH Jury to help with chain governance and dApp dispute resolution.

OATH Protocol introduces a new consensus mechanism, Proof of common sense. It is not used by nodes to confirm the on-chain data. Instead, it is a consensus mechanism that is used within the OATH jury community.

OATH jurors only need to rely on their common sense to decide cases based on contract terms, evidence, and testimony. They do not need to be experts in any field or area. As blockchain users, they have sufficient knowledge to evaluate the evidence and determine the case outcome.

OATH jury is a community of regular blockchain supporters and dApp users. Not only will they help regulate the chain or dApp they support, but they can also provide their knowledge and service to other ecosystems. They will be rewarded for using their common sense to resolve disputes.


OATH will provide extensions for multiple smart contract programming languages, allowing users to agree on dispute resolution solutions and default claims agreements when writing smart contracts or blockchain applications. OATH will also provide an infrastructure layer for dApps so that developers can directly integrate OATH protocol.

At the same time, OATH will also provide a smart contract construction interface that will greatly reduce barriers to using smart contracts. By providing common contract templates, OATH will improve the usability of smart contracts in a variety of scenarios. The templates will include many typical applications and scenarios, such as e-commerce, copyright protection, OTC transactions, and others. OATH protocol will be built into the template and include a dispute resolution plan, compensation agreement, and other related fields. All smart contracts written through the OATH smart contract interface are automatically secured by the OATH protocol.

The heart of the OATH protocol is our jury community. They protect the integrity of smart contracts that incorporate the OATH protocol by adjudicating any potential disputes. The OATH jury community will also serve to link news, events, and predictions between blockchains and the real world.

Yin Xu holds a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) from the University of Wisconsin. Yin’s experience includes working as an engineer at the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation, one of the largest health care research foundations in the US. There, he contributed to and led several healthcare projects that involved mobile application development and big data and co-authored several publications relating to healthcare technology. Yin is the winner of a nationwide contest, Million Hearts Risk Assessment Challenge, held by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) of the US.

Following his work at the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation, he joined a Silicon Valley tech company, Trip.com, as the tech lead, where he led the entire mobile team.  There, Yin developed the app that ended up winning multiple awards, including “Best App of the Year,” “Editor’s Pick, and “Best Developer,” among others, from Apple and Google. Yin’s was one of only four apps (among millions of contenders) in the Google store that has won all of their rewards. Trip.com was acquired by CTrip by the end of 2017.

Yin is a passionate blockchain believer, having paid attention to blockchain technology since 2015 and contributed to several projects, including an ETH Wallet, dApps, and smart contracts.

OATH Tokens

OATH will issue 10,000,000,000 ERC-20 tokens (OATH) that facilitate engagement between participants on the platform by providing access to the platform and acting as its internal currency. OATH can be earned by acting as nodes, arbitraging contracts, or providing community services. It may also be purchased from crypto exchanges and marketplaces.
