Third class AKPERSONs are either anonymous humans or machine agents. A distinction is made only if the agent has successfully passed an explicit challenge or is implied to be human in a real time context.
Second class AKPERSONs are human users, who are social-networked or e-mail registered ip-identified. They may also be tx-authenticated at a 10% of the standard capitation fee. The social-networked layer has read and some write access to a base set of domains, comparable to that in the peer network they enter from. E mail registrations are manually approved if it's reasonably evident that it's not a frivolous or malicious account and is a real person. Second class tx-authenticated has access to most source code, and some support and general computing resources.
First class AKPERSONs are currently tx-authenticated real persons who have paid the full base entitlement capitation fee. The tx-authenticated user space is distinguished from the lower classes common in various free venues by the traceability thru the financial system. Peer networks are notoriously open via their free induction of malicious impostors. Combines with open accounting. our books are open to authenticated users, to distinguish our approach to forming social networks. In practice, the subclasses, e.g. developers, operators, app subscribers, etc. are operative but the AKPERSON SKUs are meant for mass entitlement, to fund basic infrastructure maintenance and development.
capitation ³ can be used for license mandated access to sources, to establish billing for bespoke apps or per diem contracting, and other special circumstances. It is subsidized tx-authentication vended only in-app.
³plus any 3rd party tx vendor charges
