From Value Network
Jump to: navigation, search

Which basic functional and environmental characteristics are common to the general idea of Value Network in theory and practice?

What initial conditions are conducive to the emergence and sustainability of a scalable economic 'living system' in this paradigm?

This page is an alternative, minimalist / generalist / catalyst approach to the question What is a value network?. Instead, we consider what, fundamentally, brings life into the socio-economic system which will grow and flourish as a network over time--and without which, the network will diminish and desist.

Critical Components

  1. Cause - an initiatory vision and trajectory which inspire enthusiasm, confidence, and investment; similar to 'value proposition' in a traditional business plan
  2. Capital - an aggregation of Seed Value assets and resources which provide an attractive store of energy to begin productive efforts
  3. Currency - information systems to transparently record and transfer credits in dimensions like money, reputation, intention, and participation
  4. Credibility - the foundation of trust amongst peers which will sustain the currency systems and promote generative culture
  5. Community - a surrounding body of peers and potential customers with resources to exchange for goods and services
  6. Conjugation - the ability to extend and intersect the network, inducting members, interfacing with siblings, and subdivision
