This newsletter is not investment advice. I might dabble in Web3 things or I might not dabble in Web3 things.
Web3 is a polarizing topic across generations. In fact, I’m referring to Web3 instead of crypto because crypto- (hidden) gave way to cryptocurrency (hype) and there isn’t space to spill enough ink here to change the condition.
Things need to be built. Distraction delays progress.
I’m not giving up Web1 or Web2 and… that’s okay. You don’t have to either.
Some of my favorite Web1 things that take up room in my long term memory bank of a brain stopped working last month. Web1, Web2, and Web3 aren’t a contest or zero sum game.
I’m only suggesting that Web3 will increasingly be a reframed or repackaged way of avoiding references to crypto in describing what will be created in the coming years.
Looking for another phrasing zeitgeist prediction?
crypto ⛏ = NGMI
- Web3 🏄 = WAGMI
Said another way, you’re more likely to remember a fun participatory phrase like “surfing” 🏄
” ⛏ in the coming Web3 years to follow. As such, when Web3 finds the best possible word smithing
, neologism, or analogy, we’re going to be participating in far greater numbers.
We just have’t had our Web3 Polly
Surfs up! 🌊
