Decentralisation – moving from exchange value to use value
Abstract: The current political economy fosters competition and centralised structures, resulting in
unequal distribution of wealth and institutions that fail to deliver on their promises. However,
structural changes driven by disruptive technologies are gathering momentum. In order to harness
these developments for the benefit of everyone, we need to explore the potential of tokenisation to shift
the global political economy away from the competitive paradigm of scarcity and rarity value to a
collaborative paradigm in which use value becomes the dominant criterion for all economic activity.
