legiteem8 question

Post by zargosh »

Hey Jimmy,
Hope all is good. I was wondering if you're tracking the community sourced pass/fails on the app? Are they accurate? I know there's a bit of a conflict since you're offering paid authentications as part of the app, but just curious what you're seeing and whether you've had to resist the urge to weigh in.
best,
M

As we suspected would happen there is definitely a small percentage where the community gets it wrong. Sometimes marginally where there's almost a split. But there are some really tricky ones, like vintage bootleg rap tees, that have fooled everyone who voted. But that's understandable - some of these niches are really tough, and that's why we have the panel.

For a free service, it's damn good and we're proud of it. We are working on ways to encourage more voting with our next update, as I think people have been a bit hesitant to vote.

Nice. You should definitely be proud, man, it's very cool. It'd be interesting to do a deep dive into some of the ones that were judged wrong (either pass or fail) and see where the community knowledge is sort of off base. Not sure how that would happen, but it's the kind of thing I'd be into.
