Trade network Ideas/tools/approaches
Someone comes to my website and learns about product/service detail and pricing. Or they can send out a bot to trawl websites looking for given product or service – Request for Information. The rest of the RFQ request for quote / IOU I owe you process through to invoice and finally smart contract operation/payment/receipt might be automated i.e. select supply based on following .*.

RDF transaction descriptors
There is XBRL GL format https://www.xbrl.org/the-standard/what/global-ledger/ . RDF fits pretty closely with XBRL- GL which is just XML and .XSD.
Open-source triple Ledger can be run off Ethereum mainnet https://docs.baseline-protocol.org/ . This approach provides secure grounding for trade transactions. Legends i.e. account names are available via cohort-agreed, IPFS-pinned taxonomies/examples. (opportunity for accountants to get engaged with the technology so they can manage & agree taxonomies.)

The valueshift on the IOU can be handled with a mint & burn procedure against a Stablecoin or some other cohort agreed metric. I suspect that to make the network really valuable we need to tie in energy + Carbon. See Watt attached and – https://accziom.com/k-cal-reform/ for ideas.
Optimization by cohort-agreed protocols using some set of liquidity ratios https://accziom.com/open-ended-optimization-protocol/ .
Ark X Manifesto and associated docs are all opensource and plan is to add versioning controls against IPFS. Any cohort can then branch the docs, ideas and code repos.
