Improving Network Incentives Through Work Tokens

Medium-of-exchange tokens: tokens grant participation in a network and their provisioning serves as a medium of exchange (proprietary payment mechanism) for the delivery of a good/service native to the particular network.

Work tokens: tokens grant access to the network and provide cash flow potential conditional on the provisioning of work with the token.

Simplified representation of work token networks. Logic remains: good work is rewarded, bad work punished.
