So, no matter how much time, money, though, research someone pours into a product, his/her patent has no value, in digital currency. Sounds like it's all hokey to talk IP, creating currencies, and so on, if you cannot put a price on it.
What makes one persons time more worthwhile to pay for, than another? Are all manhours to be equal? Then why wouldn't my research hours, development and patenting have an assigned value, based on work done?
If someone hires for manual labor, there's an approximate value minimum wage, quality mental work should, at least, have a higher 'value', like comparing the work of a CEO, to a bookkeeper.
Who establishes and controls these functions, and if digital currency has value, how does a product, or labor create that currency? How does it get regulated to assure equitable solutions?
