Line Goes Up – The Problem With NFTs

If someone pitches you on a “great” Web3 project, ask them if it requires buying or selling crypto to do what they say it does.

This is a true masterpiece, shoving A LOT of information about economy, the 2008 crash, cryptocurrencies and blockchains into a two-hour documentary. It might be overwhelming if this is your first contact with cryptocurrencies.

The sad part for me is that the whole thing to me is not so different how people reject covid(-vaccines) and are completely stuck in a bubble and actively block out question/criticism of their way of seeing things.

The Third Web

You are here because you are somehow interested in what the “Web3” or “NFT” thing is about. Maybe someone gave you this link, maybe you follow me somewhere. In this document I’ll try to explain what those terms mean, what ideas and politics they are based on and what I think about them. I will do my best to represent the Web3/NFT ideas as fairly as possible but for transparency’s sake I should note that I am not a fan.
