The weird thing that convinced me
we need web3
Notes

I’ve never been convinced that we really need web3.

You know, web3: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana, smart contracts, NFTs and all that.

These blockchain technologies are all pretty nifty, but do we really need them?

Isn’t the blockchain just a seriously slow, extremely expensive, disastrously distributed database?

Well, something weird just happened to me that helped convince me that we do need web3.

It’s going to sound absurd, but bear with me.

There’s a point to all this, I promise.
