The truth is that the latest surveillance technologies if re-purposed, are capable of interpreting our valuable human information. Modern Ai is capable, networked with the “Wisdom of the crowd”, of translating that value to the market value of a community crypto-currency, rewarded in return to each user, which can be exchanged by the user for fiat currency, as necessary to buy what they need for life.
So it is not money for nothing, it is money paid in return for the valuable information added to the world by every human.
