I think I’m beginning to understand why Wisdom is realizing you know nothing. What you think you know is simply a continuation of a posteriori knowledge that came before you. I’ll be immensely happy to have one original idea before I die.
If the token in the protocol is not clearly needed, i.e., is not tied to a scarce resource that is essential to the functioning of the protocol then the token is more of a marketing play. For Bitcoin the scarce resource is currency, for Ethereum the scarce resource is computing-power, and for Blockstack the scarce resource is digital property (like domain names). If there is no scarce resource, there is no need for a protocol token.
