How I Got Interested In Web3

I wouldn't call myself an expert in Web3.

However, I have spent the last three months going down the rabbit hole and learning everything I can.

Here's how I first got interested in Web3:

In 2022 my Twitter feed turned Web3 crazy. There was capital flowing freely and top talent was moving into the space. I was intrigued!

I sat down to a family dinner and shared my growing interest in Web3.

The response "Crypto and NFTs have no real-world use cases and the industry is full of scams".

I didn't have a good reply or data at my fingertips to share and that annoyed me.

It was time to stop reading and start doing.
