The longer you look at everything sans $BTC as “shitcoins,” the more blind you become to the inevitable.
While solely holding $BTC as a retail crypto investor is sufficient, adding $ETH to the mix gives you broader exposure to crypto-innovation.
From there, keep an open mind, while also thoroughly vetting anything else you buy or use.

If looking at #DeFi, it may be best to start with holding $DPI (@defipulse index):

Love ❤️ is one thing that can't be tokenized.

If blockchains become like economic water, trying to "tokenize love" would be akin to washing cotton candy with that water 🧵
Dating apps are the step before attempts to tokenize love. It's a common complaint that dating apps "commoditize love."

That's right; dating apps make a special connection something that people aim to produce efficiently, like a commodity.

In so doing, love loses its essence.
Everything we do is for our social relationships, which feed back into the relationship with ourselves.

Often people get confused, that the money, or the token, gets you to the end destination.

And that end, whether you acknowledge it or not, is love...belonging.

As much as I ❤️ #Ethereum, crypto innovation will not be constrained to , just as it wasn't constrained to .
The ~year since writing the below piece has been full of fires for up-and-coming smart contract protocols.

For the quality SC protocols, on the horizon is a period of massive growth, alongside #Ethereum's own scaling journey.…
#Ethereum will scale, but that doesn't mean it will capture every middleware protocol & crypto application interface built forevermore.

Anyone know where the adage...

"Don't talk politics"

...came from?

If politics is how we govern ourselves, "not talking politics" seems like the opposite of what we should be doing.
People will say, "It's not polite to talk politics, it's too controversial!"

If we can't do it gracefully, maybe we need to exercise this mental muscle more?
Maybe being unable to amicably discuss controversial things is one of the reasons society has come to feel so... dysfunctional?

Maybe it's one of the reasons we're not making good long-term decisions, as a group of glorified monkeys on Earth?

This is 21st-century art. Soon it will be different, and that's the point.

"First Supper" 22 layers @AsyncArt:… Image
"We, cryptoartists, gather in this place to celebrate a new dawn for collaboration, creativity, and interaction between artist, collector, and art-lover alike."
"We hold these tokens to be self-evident, that all layers are created uniquely by individual artists, that each is endowed by their creator with specific immutable rights; that among these are state, rotation, scale, XY position, visibility, opacity, hue, and RGB."

Having written about...

The Defensibility Of Middleware Protocols:…

Fire Before Growth: The Likely Fate Of Ethereum Killers:…

...I have to say the next 12+ months are going to be tense.

Middleware protocols may be the deciders 🧵
Middleware protocols provide a specific service to the interface layer, be they financial, social, or technological.

In 2019 @placeholdervc posited they would achieve cross-chain, winner-takes-most dominance in their respective services - we're seeing things move that direction
Meanwhile, many #EthereumKillers have gone through their "fire period" and are entering their "growth period."

While many will claim to not be focused on dethroning #Ethereum, make no mistake, the knives are out.

Beware crypto, the two-faced PsyOps.
With less money to suck, PsyOps tend to shrivel in bear markets, only to bloom again in bull markets 👀
Most dangerous in entrepreneur or investor form, don’t feed these PsyOps your dollars, or take their dollars, they will only get stronger if you do 👁
