This is an interesting concept. Putting an exchangeable token with a price attached to a celebrity's perceived public value. When celebrities do a lot of good, the price could increase and when they are perceived to be less popular to the public, the price of their token decreases. It's a scary concept people being able to value your social value in dollar terms.

Thanks for sharing.
