Token-curated registries (TCRs) are a mechanism by which a set of users are able to jointly curate a list by using tokens in their possession to vote on the suitability of individual entries. This talk provides a formal cryptographic treatment of TCRs and a secure construction, and discusses broader issues around implementing cryptographic mechanisms in constrained environments like Ethereum.
