Since there are lots of people who are able to do work (like video editing) better and cheaper than what I personally would be able to do, I think it would be in everyone’s best interest for citizens and e-residents to be able to outsource part of their volunteer work and be reimbursed in Merits for the money paid to the virtual assistant.
I volunteer for Liberland for 10 hours at a rate of 20 LLM per hour and I accomplish Task A with 75% quality.
Total LLM paid = 10 * 20 = 200 LLM.
I hire a virtual assistant (VA) to work to advance Liberland for 10 hours at a rate of 5 LLM equivalent per hour and the VA accomplishes Task A with 95% quality.
Total LLM paid = 10 * 5 = 50 LLM
In Scenario 1, everyone is clearly better off than in Scenario 0. What do you think?
*All of the above numbers are completely made up.
