Is it possible to create tasks that pay out reputation only?

It is not possible to create tasks that pay out reputation only because the number of reputation points rewarded for completing a task is equivalent to the number of native colony tokens assigned to the task payout.

You can create a new token and make it the native token of your colony, which does not need to have any real value, but would simply be used for payouts allowing users to gain reputation.

Several projects might see value in using a new token that acts like a rewards token or all-time score, because the token will not decay over time, unlike reputation, which will.
