I believe in #blockchain technology because of the people behind it.

The developers, engineers, and technologists who #BUIDL
The smart contract experts who audit and secure the code
The designers who care deeply about user experience
The marketers who tell the story of Web3
The gamers that play around with dice, kitties, and dApps
The people at legacy institutions who demand their firms innovate
The kids that take the time to create @metamask_io accounts for their parents
The professors and academics who pioneer advancements in cryptography
The Reddit, Twitter, and social media users (trolls too) that broadcast the message of decentralization
The advocates and enthusiasts who adopt and believe in #blockchain
The nameless individuals who transact across the network and prove the protocol’s merits every single day
I still believe.
