Why do I have to do an exchange before my Globe unlocks?

We want our new members to experience a genuine, sharing exchange experience. We believe, is best felt from hosting another member. This can be any type of exchange: simultaneous, non-simultaneous, non-reciprocal or hospitality, as long as the other member is staying in your place for 5 nights or more. We're using Globes to make sure that all new members will do this first, before receiving their Globe for a non-reciprocal exchange.
