Learning, connecting, and sharing knowledge can be so much better stimulated if people and entities receive rewards like currencies, reputation, partial platform ownership, voting rights, etc. Suppose we would be active in a transparent, open-source environment, where we can build upon each other's shoulders.

Moreover, they add more efficiency, transparency, accessibility, and privacy to the mix due to removing the centralized controlling party.
