The Everipedia Voting System

Recently, I have started exploring the everipedia dapp and have noted that the voting system designed to curate the material created by the community has some issues.

The system inhibits the good behavior of carefully scrutinizing the content of an article by incentivizing the vote with majority. This natural human tendency is indeed reinforced by the voting system since the majority is rewarded with IQ tokens.

I don't know whether it is possible or whether it would bring some bad implications, but one idea to improve the system would be to hide the approval rate information until the end of the voting period.

The idea of a decentralized encyclopedia is awesome and I hope the developers of Everipedia come with a clever solution to the mentioned problem.
