Implement a LETS to encourage users to share content on Wikipedia.
created on: 02:06, 18 March 2014

Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

Receive a payment with a virtual currency for the content contributed to Wikipedia may be encouraging and rewarding, which would increase the editors.

What is your solution?[edit]

Implement a system of virtual payments on the style of Cyclos 4. The money could be used within the platform to exchange good & services between the editors and hopefully out from Wikipedia.

Project goals[edit]

One way to encourage editors to participate more in Wikipedia, also having some small gratification.
