B4 your laugh, I knew iota don't need to mine, all POW work can be done by yourself. 
But everyone is using light wallet and pass POW work to full node, now here is the question, without incentive, why someone willingly sets up a full node for someone else to use?
IOTA foundation(I believe) does Coordinator Task, so that the network can be stable, who is going to do this job in further?
