This is survey!
We would like to know if you would invest money in SENSORICA's projects?
Please read the section explaining what investing means before you formulate your answer. If your conclusion is "NO", please tell us what it would take to make you feel different.
SENSORICA is an instantiation of the value network model. This model is still in evolution. You can find a lot of literature on this website about the model, its present state and our aims. For this survey, please try to consider the model at a more advanced state. After all, you're answering a hypothetical question, and you can always add comments to justify your final answer.
One of SENSORICA's main reasons for existence (the reason why people get involved in it) is tangible rewards, which, we all hope, will allow all contributors (investors) to secure their subsistence and well being.
Here are a few important characteristics of the value network model to keep in mind:
Contributions can be made in time, cash, materials and other. This survey is about investing cash.
In short, the value accounting system takes into account all contributions from all members to a given project and uses the value equation to compute equity. The equity is represented by a pie share, where the entire pie, the 100%, represents the revenue (potentially) generated by the product issued from the project. Every contributing member to this particular project has a portion of the pie. As the project develops more contributions are made by different members, and the equity distribution changes. This is why we call this fluid equity. When the project reaches maturity the pie share becomes more stable. Only those who contribute to marketing efforts, who maintain the flow of the product towards the market, will continue to add value, little by little.
An investment is a contribution to a project with the expectation of a future tangible reward. This reward usually comes from exchanging the product, which results from the project, on the market, against other tangible values, which are redistributed according to the value accounting system. An investment is different from a donation, which is a contribution made without any expectation for a future tangible reward.
An individual or an organization who invests cash automatically becomes a member of SENSORICA. This means that this individual or the organization MUST adhere to the value accounting system. Someone who makes a donation doesn't need to become a member of SENSORICA.
