    I don't think web3 can thrive until we understand the forces that marginalize federated social spaces while centralizing others. People tend to gravitate towards convenience and these decentralized systems and autonomous spaces just take too much effort to embrace. I also think we need to recognize that web2 has produced a strong countermovement to unplug and embrace/reclaim our own reality as opposed to augmenting it further. I just feel like the minds behind web3 are trying to force a movement when there's no demand for one and some are selling a decentralized frontend while their backend is still centralized (looking at the Cloudflare monopoly) but I would love to see those ideas become reality if that's what the people want.

    Yeah what's the point of web3 when people are starting to see the concerns of tech taking too much of our time?

    I think the tech just isn't all way there yet

    if someone could spin up a social media site on blockchain and make it easy to on board users and support millions of users with no issues it could work.. people could actually own their own social media accounts and your whole profile would be movable to different services but capacity and usability of these networks isn't on the level of web2 yet

    that's why it hasn't caught on it's the internet in the early 90s, when it scales to billions of users that will be the point it can compete with server farms at aws, even the highest throughput blockchains right now can only support about 10k complex requests a second

    what do they mean exactly when they refer to dApps being serverless

    they are run on smart contracts (a smart contract is a turing complete application layer) which is maintained by different Proof of Stake & Proof of Work blockchains like Avax, Ethereum, Polygon etc

    you could even have a centralized Blockchain for Facebook items but it would still be Web3 if the items were interoperable with Open source networks like Ethereum

    To me it seems that this is just more of the same technology that already exists within web2. I don't see how adding a js framework to web2 would change it to the degree thats implied here. Adding functionality for blockchain tech just seems like it'll just be an api addition to certain sites.

    good thread

    So it’s a new way of building platforms x sites that favor the designers?

    Blockchain is most relevant in financial services/supply chain tbh imo. A lot of the tech is gimmicky and adding blockchain where it isn’t necessarily needed kind of like everyone saying AI everything like a few years ago. Now, I’m very very interested in DAOs, this whole model and concept of decentralized companies is really weird but can have some very creative use cases like ones that we already have seen. This is really just the beginning, new use cases are popping up in crypto on the daily so would love to see what we see over the next few years as bigger players come in and more people look to innovate.
