The main idea behind the study of complex systems is the modelling of systems by modelling their individuals parts. This idea comes in contrast to the standard mathematical modelling, that focuses on higher level behaviours of a system. ABM’s can model non-linear and chaotic behaviours of systems, which are very difficult to capture with other types of models. The most notable example is the assumption of rationality, which has been much disputed after the financial meltdown of 2008. Tokenomics is a relatively new field, but there are no standard rules as how to set up a token economy and what to expect in terms of usage.
