Claim: The Vakt platform is based on the Ethereum blockchain
- there’s a press release at the Vakt’s website stating the following: underpinned by JPMorgan’s Quorum private distributed ledger;
- on the Quorum’s website it states the following: Quorum™ is an enterprise-focused version of Ethereum
- on the Quorum’s github page there’s a clarification: Quorum is a fork of go-ethereum and is updated in line with go-ethereum releases.
Status: both TRUE and FALSE!
True because Vakt is based on Quorum (1) which is based on Ethereum (2,3) … so we could conclude that in fact Vakt is based on the Ethereum blockchain software (although even here one could argue that it’s not based directly on the Ethereum’s software so the claim is not that accurate)
False because Vakt is not based on the Ethereum blockchain platform (“the mainnet” etc).
And so if somebody read that article and assumed that it’s about the Ethereum blockchain platform (not just the code) that person could get inspired and buy ETH based on such news. But there are many forks of Ethereum, and their success could be unrelated (or even produce some negative effect) to the ETH/fiat exchange rates.
Hence it seems pretty important to clarify the distinction and not mislead the readers; but at the same time we can’t just mark the claim as False because its another reading (1,2,3) is True.
Question: @preethi how shall we handle cases like this one? In the TruStory app, if there will be a single True/False input field, either answer could be inaccurate
