What is Work Value?
Work Value ranges from the unique creative non fungible Tokensets to mechanical fungible Currentsets.
Work Value is nonlinear and irreversible reducing local entropy within its ecosystem while increasing global entropy.
Syntropic Work Value is also nonlinear and irreversible reducing local entropy within its ecosystem but instead increases open-system “transglobal space entropy”.
Released Currents are exchanged for stored value. Work produces artifacts or actions that are keyed for human purposes.
Work Value Creation
Work currents begin with value creation delivered in an efficient enough way to generate synergies and margins.
We review Work Value as a fundamental concept to understand.
We review how it is created

How do we measure and manage value
How is Work Value is Created
Value is created through work, as intentional action-result. This work could be mechanical such as building a structure or creative like creating a plan.
We want to reduce or eliminate work that is not value-creating. We achieve this by tokenizing results
Matter, energy, and/or information has work value if these are met:
Value-creating economic transformations are nonlinear or are “time creative”. They create transformations and transactions that locally (within system) reduce entropy locally, while increasing entropy globally.
In Syntropic Work Value the global absorbs the entropy and move it to a more generalized scale. Value generating transformations and transactions produce things or actions and results fit for human purposes.
Work Value is an irreversible process with revealed usefulness to other humans.
We have an unlimited spectrum of activity that can be value-producing and can generate Currents for circulation as stored value.
A Scale of Value
With this enormous set of possible ways to create work value, how do we decide which to pursue? Is each way of creating value as useful to us as another?
All systems must create value. Some types of value and methods of value creation are more useful than others.
