Of course, I've just linked recognition to financial reward. That wasn't really the main goal of the system though, although it operated as a nice side-effect. You couldn't gift some of your TC without connecting it to a company value and also explaining what they did to earn it, and all of this would be posted publically to a special channel in HipChat (as well as the application itself) for everyone to see. There was even a leaderboard and it was quite exciting to see who made it to the top each month (I held the record for a few months, it was a nice ego boost).

This started off in a small company with only 37 people in it at the time I joined, two of them being the co-founders. Almost a year later and it was a company of more than 250 people, but the system continued and, quite surprisingly, didn't really suffer for it.  Reading all of the positive messages in the public typecoin channel was truly amazing, and aside from other things we did as part of the uniquely expressive culture we had, it was one of my favourite things to catch up with.

You can probably tell from my writing that I miss my time there a lot.

The reason I bring this up so fondly is because the act of recognition was an active one. It was hard to feel unappreciated or unloved in a place like Typeform when everyone was so open with appreciation and gratitude. I'll let others speak for my possible role in that, but it wasn't a thing to be ashamed of sharing the same way it can be in more repressive or corporate environments.
