Benefits, Drawbacks, and Trade-Offs
There definitely are use cases that exist to deploy on-chain solutions. Unfortunately, its still is quite difficult for mainstream users in Web2 to be onboarded onto on-chain solutions.
But Blackbird.xyz and Friend.tech are some great examples illustrated because they're focused on creating simplified user onboarding experiences - makes it almost seamless for anyone who doesn't know the difference between Web 2 and Web3 apps. We need more of such user-focused solutions out there to move beyond the traditional maximalist+fundamentalist+early adopter user cohort for blockchain solutions.
Love this. Some say blockchain is a protocol and we are migrating from pipelines ( web3 ) to protocols (web3).. either way, this makes sense.
I'm a UI/UX designer and I wouldn't mind working for a company that works with crypto. Are there any companies currently looking for a UI/UX designer?
As a DNA stewardship consultant, whereby a cryobank is your time machine toward successive life cycles, the inclusion of smart contracts and the absolute certainty that the DNA in play is always your own, crypto is sine qua non. My ambition is to expand the funeral industry to include regeneration (once ectogenesis becomes mature and accepted). There's no room for discrepancies, ergo crypto.
Seriously, friend.tech has so many features of a Ponzi scheme... ok it buzzes right now but that's not going to end well.
And let's get real : crypto is cool for milking suckers and investors. Or doing stuff illegal in most countries.
No need for this in any real world scenario.
