As someone who went ‘all in’ on the Web3 space, in particular, the creative side of things - it’s been disheartening to watch the downward progression.
We went from art, community, and tech (WAGMI) to irresponsible speculation, rampant profiteering, and blatant exploitation and scamming.
It’s all pretty clear in hindsight- who the cons were, how they manipulated us, how they swept us up in their games, and why the authorities finally felt the need to step in.
The true believers are still here but now we’ve had our arms amputated and our reason for being here covered in shit. Worst of all- the time and money invested have been stolen. Worse than someone stealing your new car is when you still have the car but someone has stolen the road.
That’s what it feels like right now.
