3. If you are unable to contact the persons providing the recommendation
discern for yourself that they are real people then you're unable to
establish trust, and certificates won't help you at all. If i go by 7
identities each of which has its own set of work in public and then I start
recommending myself I can also obtain 7 certificates and pay respect to
myself (or one of my 7 selves) from 6 different people who are me. That is
unless you use a physical electronic/biometric ID card and then you have a
problem of people hacking and replicating those cards on the black market.

I don't understand how this is any different than the established social
practice of people recommending people.

do you think that i am not aware of these obvious practical impediments?

The system i recommended was just a rough idea and i hoped that people in
the list would try improving it or think further in the direction. of course
it cannot work directly the way i told. what i wanted to say is that
theoretically there is no need for "direct equal exchange" - not that my
example how that could work can be implemented practically with our current
