This paper proposes a new approach to introducing scarcity into identity systems without sacrificing privacy and self-sovereignty.
The method relies on quantifying attention flows between identities. It is predicated on the fact that attention is a basic element of all cognitive processes. It is also limited and therefore is a natural source of scarcity.

Identity remains an unsolved problem for decentralized networks. None of the existing solutions are privacy-preserving, Sybil-resistant and self-sovereign at the same time.

One cannot understand influence without knowing how to quantify it.
What does it mean to have influence?
