The complexity of the evolving web requires autonomous and adaptive web applications. To construct a nature-inspired multi-agent system may be an important means of addressing this. However what mechanisms are appropriate for agents to emerge such an applications is still under consideration. This paper considers a credit card mechanism in economic interactions as a decentralized control approach of the eco-network computation platform (a nature-inspired multi-agent system). The simulation results prove that the approach can offer a guarantee for the platform to emerge autonomous and adaptive web applications.
