$PNK is an Ethereum-based token of Kleros, an open source online dispute resolution protocol which uses blockchain and crowdsourcing to fairly adjudicate disputes.
Kleros is a decision protocol for a multipurpose court system able to solve every kind of dispute. It is an Ethereum autonomous organization that works as a decentralized third party to arbitrate disputes in every kind of contract, from very simple to highly complex ones. Every step of the arbitration process (securing evidence, selecting jurors, etc.) is fully automated. Kleros does not rely on the honesty of a few individuals but on game-theoretical economic incentives.
