I don’t see why not even though it’s probably not going to be something I would use often. It does open up other possibilities.
I think it was on foldingcoin’s slack I suggested “receiver tokens”. Basically, instead of sending foldingcoin as usual, one could create a monthly token that gets distributed in the same manner foldingcoin does. Since it would act merely as a token to receive other tokens it wouldn’t matter how many were created, it could be 10s or 1000s (as long as it’s divisible). This token would then receive foldingcoin as a dividend. Now, if dividend restrictions were lifted, anybody could participate easily in the so called merged mining by simply doing a dividend payment to the “receiver token”.
Projects could look at the history and choose the month it wanted to make the distribution. They could also add another layer to that by incorporating the “receiver token” into their project. SOG could for example say that the month that generated the most folding points will become a card in their game, giving it added value than merely being a “receiver token”.
If restrictionless dividends makes it easier to cooperate without permission, great! Counterparty could be a superorganism in the making.
