One of the biggest use cases for crypto is tokenization.

And it's bigger than you think... 🚀🚀 Image Note that just because crypto is used to tokenize an asset class does not mean that the crypto market cap will grow by the same magnitude.

Stop comparing AI and Crypto.

AI is bloody amazing today (and will get exponentially better in the coming years), but its inception was ~80 years ago. 80 years later, you can bet your ass you won’t be using credit cards and SWIFT transfers to make payments.

The real value of NFTs is something that very few people are talking about.

Here’s why I believe the NFT market will be worth TRILLIONS by the end of the decade. 👇 Like most, I used to think of NFTs as nothing more than overpriced JPEGs… until I read @punk6529’s thread.

Crypto regulation can move financial innovation forward or backward 10 years.

It all depends 👇 🐂 🚀 Bull case:

• Good regulation that doesn't choke builders, users, or investors.

• It allows normies, financial institutions and businesses to adopt crypto comfortably as long as they file their taxes appropriately.

The failures of the last 12 months have given crypto a really bad rep:

• FTX / Alameda
• Celsius
• 3AC

But few recognize that these were not "failures of crypto". In fact, ALL of these were failures of poorly regulated, centralized systems.

If there's a lesson to be learned from these failures, it's not that "Crypto is bad" (as mainstream media and governments have decided after last year).

Blockchain can reduce global borrowing costs by > $35 billion. The cost of borrowing globally is in the trillions.

The archaic and opaque nature of the legacy financial system has made it hard to reduce these costs.

Did a Q&A Twitter Space with @KidFromSky from @snapmuseio today - was an interesting chat about the challenges for web3 mass adoption.

Here's what we discussed 👇 Q. What do you think of crypto education for mass adoption?

Education helps, but it's not the solution for mass adoption.

I've been connecting with a bunch of web3 founders these last few weeks.

I feel super optimistic after meeting so many amazing builders. The quality of web3 projects I'm seeing now is waay more impressive than 6 months ago.

Even bearish times have silver linings.

Here’s why Crypto payments haven’t gone mainstream 👇 1. Web2 solutions are good enough.

web2 solutions that are “good enough” already exist for the masses.

Card payments are convenient enough for retail or online purchases.

When you apply for immigration visas, they ask for ALL kinds of documents – education credentials, bank statements, etc

They're trying to mitigate risk, but they ask for PDFs / JPEG as proof... 😳

PDFs & JPEGs are not designed as systems of proofs - they are too easy to forge. Always makes me think of this NFT use case.

NFTs are infinitely better than PDFs or JPEGs when it comes to providing a guarantee of authenticity.

I asked some crypto Twitter big-brains for their best advice to those looking to kickstart a career in web3.

Here's what they said 👇 These creators might not be looking for jobs in Crypto, but they have spent a lot of their time networking with builders, founders, and teams in web3.

So they have a great sense of what web3 companies are looking for and how to build a career in crypto.

There are a lot of benefits to tokenizing real world assets like stocks.

But the 2 models for tokenizing stocks that I've seen so far both seem quite flawed 👇 Tokenization of stocks is valuable because:

• Anyone anywhere across the world can buy or sell stocks without restrictions

• Stock tokens can be plugged into other smart contracts (for example, as collateral to borrow money against)

• Tokens are easily transferrable.
