I want to hire Malcolm Langfield (pseudonym) to do a game theoretic analysis of this mechanism set:
This article explores a mechanism that enables wealth equalizing dynamics by constraining the payment behavior of wallets that contain newly issued token classes. A simplified model of this mechanism in a two party interaction implies that less wealthy vendors may have a competitive advantage over wealthier vendors. This effect arises because the wealthier the vendor, the more they’ll be affected by the inflation caused by accepting the newly issued token class. It seems to do this without blunting the incentive for productive output. In principle, these new token classes in the context of these mechanisms could be a promising additional mechanism for funding public goods.
If this mechanism remains promising after analysis it could represent a new primitive for public goods funding and have significant consequences for governance.
If we're successful, when it comes time for SA to review we'll be presenting a brand new mechanism for making impact markets viable and even profitable, something SA would love.
I'm utterly obsessed with this. Like, wake up every morning thinking about this and go to sleep the same. You have all my attention. However, my game theoretic expertise is no more than what you see in that article. So, I'll need support from people with more knowledge. Malcolm has that expertise, but it's not free.
It all goes to Malcom. It will cost about 1k / month for his time, I estimate we'll need 3 months of work for meaningful results.
