Unfortunately, Javier 🐝 beBee, I did not find the cited article to be of much help in answering my questions. To wit: #1: More User Control Over Data PLF: I have control over my data now. The only data I post on social media platforms is data I want to be publicly available. There is, of course, data available on the web that is personal and which I did not post there, but I can't do anything about that -- and neither can Profede. #2: Earn Tokens From Exchanging Data PLF: Tokens are gamified rewards with no intrinsic value. There is no guarantee that these tokens will ever have any underlying value. Profede is not guaranteeing to buy them from me at a fixed rate in fiat currency. #3: Portable Professional Profile and Reputation PLF: I don't now rely strictly on a centralized platform to contain my professional data. I maintain my own websites, and more data is available on my professional history than I would ever want to share by simply searching "phil friedman yacht". #4: Greater Efficiency PLF: Remains to be demonstrated how this will happen. (cont pt II...)

@Javier beBee (Pt II) #5: Reputation Ratings PLF: To my mind, this is a retrograde move that works to centralize reputation management. And it runs the danger that it will be gamed by those seeking to control and restrict entry into a given field. Leave reputation "rating" to the potential clients and customers who can make their judgments based on letters of recommendation and talking to former clients of the professional involved. #6: The Perfect 'Engine' To Make Money -- Earning tokens is a very new and trendy topic at the moment in the industry. It’s the age of cryptocurrency and what better way than to simply join Profede’s platform. PLF: Remains to be demonstrated. Investing in tokens is like parimutuel betting; it's a zero-sum game, in which some will win at the expense of others who will lose. #7: Compatibility -- Apps can develop value-added services and business models to fuel and ease the decentralized professional ecosystem. PLF: I don't see how the situation will be different from the way it is now. #8: A New Income Source For Apps -- The use of Profede for apps has an advantage of gaining additional income from tokens obtained every time a business contacts one of their users. PLF: Until the underlying value of the tokens is demonstrated (until they become negotiable for spendable currency or can be spent on goods and services, they cannot be considered income. There may, indeed, be answers to my admittedly naive questions, including those below, but as yet I haven't found them. Thanks and cheers! (cc: Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA)
