Reciprocal stakeholding

Reciprocal stakeholding means an exchange of stake for stake. The economic networking primitive in the economic space protocol. You can create a network where each economic space connects with each other by exchanging stakes. Establishing a mutual stakeholding relationship, agents gain access to each other’s output and reciprocal credit lines, simultaneously creating a new networked monetary, production, investment, and risk-taking system. When liquidity is endogenous to the system – stake offers an automatic credit line as its collateral – you don’t want to sell your stake for money, because it offers no collateral. Rather you always seek to exchange your stake with those who directly benefit and thus value your production, because in this way you will benefit from their success, and also of your own indirectly. Reciprocal stakeholding (and not the sale price of your stake) is the way you capture the value of your own innovation: its value is what others give to it. Reciprocal stakeholding changes the playing field: the key relationships will be built not with those agents who have capital (money to invest), but with those in whose performances/innovations you can play a part. In the creation of reciprocal stakeholding relationships you are assessed as a subject of risk, and you assess others as subjects of risk. It opens the way for risking-together. It allows you to express what you value, what you want to make happen, with or by whom. It is our key econautic navigation, signaling and network primitive.
