  • In this video, Octopus applies three coefficients as examples for measuring IH distribution. He explains: “These are calculations requested by the community. None of the terms have any value judgment. For example, it is not necessarily the case that a more decentralized distribution is better or fairer. These interpretations do not necessarily reflect the work that was done by people, and due to the fact that there are multiple competing measures/issues (including compensation rates, tasks that varied in assessed Praise value from week to week), the data is intrinsically complicated, and no one number or measurement can capture the aspects of it.” He also clarified the technical definition of “decentralization” as being when a collective body has “a large number of points of failure”.
