Features
Optimistic rollup 
ZK-rollup 
Proof
Uses fraud proofs to prove transaction validity. 
Uses validity (zero-knowledge) proofs to prove transaction validity. 
Capital efficiency
Requires waiting through a 1-week delay (dispute period) before withdrawing funds. 
Users can withdraw funds immediately because validity proofs provide incontrovertible evidence of the authenticity of off-chain transactions. 
Data compression
Publishes full transaction data as calldata to Ethereum Mainnet, which increases rollup costs. 
Doesn't need to publish transaction data on Ethereum because ZK-SNARKs and ZK-STARKs already guarantee the accuracy of the rollup state. 
EVM compatibility
Uses a simulation of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which allows it to run arbitrary logic and support smart contracts. 
Doesn't widely support EVM computation, although a few EVM-compatible ZK-rollups have appeared. 
Rollup costs
Reduces costs since it publishes minimal data on Ethereum and doesn't have to post proofs for transactions, except in special circumstances. 
Faces higher overhead from costs involved in generating and verifying proofs for every transaction block. ZK proofs require specialized, expensive hardware to create and have high on-chain verification costs. 
Trust assumptions
Doesn't require a trusted setup. 
Requires a trusted setup to work. 
Liveness requirements
Verifiers are needed to keep tabs on the actual rollup state and the one referenced in the state root to detect fraud. 
Users don't need someone to watch the L2 chain to detect fraud. 
Security properties 
Relies on cryptoeconomic incentives to assure users of rollup security. 
Relies on cryptographic guarantees for security.

Reputation is fundamental to the modern world. We choose Uber drivers based on their reputation (or rating), decide which Airbnb to stay at based on reviews, and choose which Netflix shows to watch based on their ratings.

Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) are collectives of people that share a common goal and participate in achieving the DAOs goals. Unlike public and private companies, DAOs made up of anonymous and pseudonymous people alongside doxxed members.

Because of a DAOs unique team structure tools are needed to manage the reputation of their members in order to make effective leadership decisions and reward members base don their activities.

This article will explain the role of tools for managing DAO reputations, how to setup a DAO reputation tool (Karma), and share a list of alternative DAO reputation tools in web3.

Why do DAOs need reputation tools?

In a DAO, reputation is used to determine who gets to participate in decision-making and who doesn't. The challenge in a DAO is the pseudo-anonymity of the blockchain, which makes it difficult to know who is behind each wallet address.

Manually managing reputation in a DAO would be incredibly time-consuming, which is why there are now a number of tools that automate the process. These DAO reputation tools, like Karma and DeepDAO, track the activity of addresses in the DAO and assign a reputation score to each one.

DAO reputation tools make it possible to quickly and easily see which addresses are active and participating in the DAO, and which ones are inactive or not contributing.

How to Set Up Karma for your DAO

There are multiple DAO reputation tools that exist. This is a simple overview of how to use Karma, a reputation aggregator that curates DAO contributor activity and provides visibility to the DAOs and helps contributors showcase their work.

1. Add your DAO to Karma

Go to the Karma website and click the "Add Your DAO" button.

Karma Reputation Tool Setup - Add Your DAO

2. Complete the Karma Google Form

This button takes you to a Google Form where you can enter the details of your DAO. You'll need to provide the name of your DAO, your role, and your contact information.

Karma Reputation Tool Setup - Google Form

3. Click Submit

Once you've provided all of the required information, click "Submit" and the Karma team will review your DAO's information and potentially add your DAO to their platform.

List of DAO Reputation Tools

In addition to Karma, there are many alternative DAO Reputation tools including:

  • Metopia - web 3 tooling infrastructure that creates data-based user reputation system for governance, reward applications.
  • SOURC3 - web3-native, decentralized platform for on-chain reputation management.
  • PNTHN - enables users, artists, designers, founders, software engineers, and more to track their reputations and establish credibility in the NFT space.
  • Astraly - developing on-chain reputation primitives and a reputation-based token distribution platform.
  • Popula - build internet reputation and monetize through creation and social engagement.
  • Underdog Protocol - helps Solana communities manage their contributors relationships on-chain.
  • SourceCred - helps communities incentivize contributors for their work.
  • Orange Protocol - reputation and trust minting protocol.
  • Krebit - creates a pseudonymous economy for users to prove things about them without revealing any unnecessary information.

Another reputation tool that's more plug-and-play is SourceCred. You can find the setup information here. With this tool, however, you'll need to be well-versed in terminal, git, and js in order to get it set up.
