The centralized exchange thing was Beingist's thing maybe he will elaborate on that?
I don't have tons of details to give out unfortunately. It's a very ambitious idea and I don't have all of the tools at my disposal to bring it to fruition. I don't have all the details fleshed out as you can see. My idea is more to bring out the discussion a little. Use a wider perspective. For example if we remove the profit motive maybe we can offset that by a recognition motive and some other motives.
I'm not pretending to have all the answers. I'd rather have a discussion on something like this instead. Like, people bringing forth their own proposals, debating which element is closer to being possible and which is farther etc.
I'm thinking of splitting the thread as this would go off-topic from this current thread. I think I'll ask a mod if I see any interest.
