The last few years have seen the emergence of novel and entirely digital forms of economic exchange, like sharing economy marketplaces where individuals can share goods and resources in real time, peer-to-peer financial services and purely digital currency such as Bitcoin. The common trait of such disruptive innovations is that they all rely on decentralized distributed networks of voluntary users: large interacting systems, where individual choices scale to collective consequences.

Every field of human activities is characterized by the emergence of novelties: a new song, a new movie, a new book, a new Twitter hashtag, and so on. The introduction of a new idea expands the possibility to explore newer concepts and, once introduced, this new idea has to compete with other concomitant ideas. Only some of them will stand out from the crowd, while the vast majority will never become known enough within the population, destined to fade into oblivion.
