A triple is a set of data that codifies a statement in the form of subject–predicate–object expressions and is used in structured data statements in the Protocol.
A triple (also know as a 'fact triple', 'semantic triple', 'SPO triple') is a set of data that codifies a statement in the form of subject–predicate–object expressions. Triples represent the base unit of knowledge in the Golden Protocol's Knowledge Graph.
Triples are portable, composable, verifiable, and can be disambiguated. They function as a building block for forming statements around entities, data, and their relationships.
For example, ‘Apple Inc.’ → ‘CEO’ → ‘Tim Cook’ is a triple. * The subject of the triple is the entity that the triple is referring to ('Apple Inc.') * The predicate of the triple defines the relationship between the subject and object (‘CEO’) * The object of the triple is the entity or data that the subject has a relationship to (‘Tim Cook’)
You can find the list of supported predicates in the protocol on its public schema page. Each object takes a different data type, based on the triple predicate. The accepted data types can vary, from simple string or integer values, to links into other entities already submitted into the graph.
You can get started programmatically submitting triples on the protocol by following the Protocol API docs or through Golden.com's UI by following the Adding Structured Data Guide.
The submitter will receive testnet points for submitting a triple that goes on to be validated. Later, the submitter may be eligible for revenue share in the triple's subject entity through an NFT.
