While each individual evaluation has to by syntactically well-formed, there are no requirments that individual users' evaluations 'agree', not can there be any such requirements, because of the system's decentralized nature. This may be a bit disorientating to those who wish to compare it with Centralized Money.
- Users who interact are not requred to send each matching evaluations
- Users who evaluate the same interaction may do so differently, including using different units to do so
- There is no requirement or expectation that users' evaluations sum to zero;
- This is not a system in which one person's gain is another's loss
Why Account At All Then?
People may wish to account for their interactions without using a zero-sum win/lose system to do so.
