Virtual firms

David Morris – Aeon speaks about virtual firms:

"Imagine, for instance, a bike-rental system administered by a DAC hosted across hundreds or thousands of different computers in its home city. The DAC would handle the day-to-day management of bikes and payments, following parameters laid down by a group of founders. Those hosting the management programme would be paid in the system’s own cryptocurrency – let’s call it BikeCoin. That currency could be used to rent bikes – in fact, it would be required to, and would derive its value on exchanges such as BitShares from the demand for local bike rentals."

The firms manage themselves and optimise their performance.  I need to understand more about biitcoin to understand this. This is the management in bunny slippers.
