Is there a reason there is no bounty/payout for open-sourcing valuable models? If a good model is made open-source, other users will be able to use it to improve their own model. As such, the improvement to the meta-model would probably be larger than if the model was kept private and staked on.
Besides, if this payout is sufficiently large, then the payoff from open-sourcing the model would likely exceed the payoff that a user would expect from staking on his or her model. As such, he or she would have an incentive to open-source the model instead of staking on it. This would be particularly applicable to users who do not have much capital, and therefore, cannot stake significant amounts.
In other words, assuming that the value that Numerai places on a good open-sourced model exceeds a user’s private valuation of his or her own model, why doesn’t Numerai incentivize users to open-source their models?
