Web3 First Impressions ➶

Moxie Marlinspike:

Also – cards on the table here – I don’t share the same generational excitement for moving all aspects of life into an instrumented economy.

Even strictly on the technological level, though, I haven’t yet managed to become a believer. So given all of the recent attention into what is now being called web3, I decided to explore some of what has been happening in that space more thoroughly to see what I may be missing.

I want an open currency to work, and I want artists, and anyone, to be able to make digital money from their own work, freely.

But if you’re buying into the hype, don’t put too much money in, because with the way things are currently set up the money may just go Poof!
