continuity x decentralization
The soft-space results from the abolition of social status as a hierarchical tool. Within this Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), any interaction, action, or behavior is recorded, quantified, evaluated, and remunerated through the establishment of a decentralized peer-to-peer network.
Using its own model of retribution, the system rewards the most invested for the common good. The value of the actions, interactions or behaviors are determined by the community and validated by consensus of the node-individuals in the distributed network. Inciting trust, encouraging positivity, the soft-space substitutes for monetization a social reputation.
On the periphery of the soft-space, far from the chaos and recklessness of the collective space, personal spaces provide the node-individuals with the necessary commodities for life – or rather survival. The central space, using physical and visual continuity, is conducive to socialization - and therefore its valuation.
By displaying all actions in public, the soft-space thus erects the collective space into a place of permanent evaluation. To the seeming fairness of the system is opposed the submission of everyday life to the eyes of others - as well as to a market where reputation has become monetary value.
