Real-Time Trust Illustration

 A mockup of how confidence (a.k.a. trust) works alongside the Value Hierarchy.

A Value Hierarchy is one of the primary ways we reduce Bandwidth Tax. The primary technique we use is by allocating a portion of the most important level toward financial resiliency and eliminating S.U.C. – Savings, Urgency, and Consolidation.

It is similar to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs – “blocks” of decreasing relative value that sit, one on top of another, and form a triangle. You’re seeing one-half of that triangle here.


  • The  long side (red line) changes shape based on Trust rated from -1 to 1 where 0 is a normal triangle.
  • The dotted black lines are each level in the hierarchy.
  • The sum of all the levels represent the amount of available resource.
  • The shaded area is how much money one might contribute to things in the first level of their “value hierarchy.
  • Observe how each “level” is relatively different depending on the trust.

This is the result of that equation – a projection for how to allocate $1,000. 

These allocations were made entirely using our automated tools. We did no figuring, calculating, or adjusting whatsoever.

The percentages are fixed and do not change – they come “off the top”. 

We’ve added three yearly expenses to each level, all with the same desired amount.

You’ll notice that money is allocated differently to each level depending on the amount trust one has.
