A Reputation-Based Incentive Mechanism for a Crowdsourcing Platform for Financial Awareness

  title={A Reputation-Based Incentive Mechanism for a Crowdsourcing Platform for Financial Awareness},
  author={Aikaterini Katmada and Anna Satsiou and Yiannis Kompatsiaris},
This paper presents the design of an incentive mechanism for the so-called PROFIT platform, a crowdsourcing (CS) platform that seeks to promote financial awareness and capability. More specifically, a reputation-based incentive scheme with gamification and social elements, which offers a mix of both implicit and explicit rewards to the most contributive users of the platform, is being proposed here. The incentive mechanism has been designed in a way to appeal to the various different motives of… 
Factors influencing the crowd participation in knowledge-intensive crowdsourcing
This study classifies factors into four categories, i.e., task properties, crowdsourcing platform characteristics, motivations of the crowd, and requesters' feedbacks, according to the process of crowdsourcing and its components, to offer guidelines for developing comprehensive models and approaches to sustain the crowd participation in KI-C.
Incentive-Driven Approach for Misbehavior Avoidance in Vehicular Networks
A fair incentive mechanism for cooperation aware vehicular communication systems that fully depends on secure and reliable cryptographic procedures and generates a certified public key for the authenticity of every message exchange over the network.
Evaluating the user experience of a financial e-learning platform featuring gamification and personalization services ( provisional title )
This paper is focused on examining the overall user experience and user attitudes towards an online platform that seeks to promote financial awareness and capability, developed by the EU-funded “PROFIT” project.
An Integrated Credit-Based Incentive Protocol for Symbol-Level Network-Coded Cooperative Content Distribution among Vehicular Nodes
This paper rigidly combines the proposed credit-based incentive approach with the modified SLNC-based cooperative content distribution operations in SocialCode to encourage all classes of vehicular nodes to rise their incentives for sharing content data in the Cooperative content distribution process.
Selfishness in Vehicular Delay-Tolerant Networks: A Review
This paper presents a detailed study of the recently proposed incentive schemes for VDTNs, and gives some open challenges and future directions for interested researchers in the future.
How Reliable is the Crowdsourced Knowledge of Security Implementation?
The findings show that based on the distribution of secure and insecure code on SO, users being laymen in security rely on additional advice and guidance, however, the communitygiven feedback does not allow differentiating secure from insecure choices.
Educational Functions and Design of Badge Systems: A Conceptual Literature Review
A conceptual literature review of multidisciplinary electronic databases oriented towards computing and education found the three core design dimensions found in this analysis were the specific function of badges, the structure of badge systems, and the different types of design and interaction features used with badges.


Incentive Mechanisms for Crowdsourcing Platforms
The aim of the particular paper is to provide an overview of user motives and incentives, to present the corresponding incentive mechanisms used to trigger these motives, alongside with some indicative examples of successful crowdsourcing platforms that incorporate these incentive mechanisms.

Online crowdsourcing platforms are increasingly used to capture ideas from crowd. Global companies are adopting crowdsourcing idea to connect with and get feedback from the users. The objective of
Leveraging Crowdsourcing: Activation-Supporting Components for IT-Based Ideas Competition
How activation-enabling functionalities can be systematically designed and implemented in an IT-based ideas competition for enterprise resource planning software and found that participation can be supported using a two-step model is described.
Reputation-Based Resource Allocation in P2P Systems of Rational Users
This paper proposes a distributed reputation-based system according to which peers earn reputation analogous to their contributions, and applies this approach in a BitTorrent-like file sharing system and highlights the potential performance gains.
A Preliminary Taxonomy of Crowdsourcing
In this paper the notion of crowdsourcing is decomposed to create a taxonomy that expands the understanding of what is meant by the term, and focuses on the different capability levels of crowdsourced suppliers; different motivations; and different allocation of benefits.
Towards a Framework for Gamification Design on Crowdsourcing Systems: The G.A.M.E. Approach
G.A.M.E., a conceptual framework to guide the design of gamification in crowd sourcing-based systems, provides a flexible step-by-step guideline that combines knowledge from software engineering, collaborative systems, game design and interaction design.
A reference model for reputation systems
Simulating the Effect of Reputation Systems on E-markets
The simulation confirms the hypothesis that the presence of the reputation system improves the quality of the market and shows that a market with limited duration rather than infinite longevity of transaction feedback provides the best conditions under which agents can adapt to each others change in behaviour.
No praise without effort: experimental evidence on how rewards affect Wikipedia's contributor community
The successful provision of public goods through mass volunteering over the Internet poses a puzzle to classic social science theories of human cooperation. A solution suggested by recent studies
This study develops a more complete composite of what motivates the crowd to participate in crowdsourcing applications generally, information crucial to adapt the crowdsourcing model to new forms of problem-solving.
