Pagerank is one way to quantify reputation. How do we quantify trust?

There’s a fair amount of literature on the Trust Game from game theory. And surveys by organizations like Edelman. And various works on social capital. What else we got?

I do believe in decentralization as a way to build trust-minimized applications. We need this to exit the establishment. But we also need mechanisms for consensual recentralization, to build new trust-maximizing communities.

Revisiting Web of Trust could be the answer, with something like ENS plus on-chain vouching.
