Social Distributed Hashcat
I may be misunderstanding but it sounds similar to cryptocurrencies and the proof-of-work/proof-of-stake portion, except the 'points' would be worth less than a cryptocurrency's 'points' because where a currency relies on an ever-increasing difficulty of the computation the cracking passwords model would be a finite-difficulty problem (which would get simpler as better hardware came out)

Your model could work for any hash type as well, not just WPA (though WPA needs some love :p haha)

Another problem comes in that if the points have worth how do you prevent abuse?
ie. I submit known (but difficult to crack hashes) and then have my friend crack them with a spcially crafted mask to ensure he's the one that gets the credit.
Just some thoughts, i like the idea though
