Aligning Incentives in the Digital Service Ecosystem
The smartphone has become an increasingly powerful tool in the hands of a consumer; both to create and capture value. As consumers, we have an opportunity to connect across borderless digital communities — globalization in its purest form. However, the increasing monopolization of the digital service ecosystem is manufacturing borders. By controlling the flow of information and data, centralized monopolies are inhibiting the ability for users to maximize their potential value creation. Everyone has a unique set of talents and a unique set of needs. A decentralized ecosystem empowers everyone to create value for each other in a truly borderless digital sharing economy — a marketplace of equal opportunity where unique needs are met by empowered individuals with unique talents to match.
