A warm welcome to everyone who joined us last week.
“We are stubborn on vision. We are flexible on details.” ― Jeff Bezos
Another way to think about the above is to be “stubborn on why, but flexible on how”.
The goal for Platformless remains the same: To help you “become your own platform” and achieve creative freedom with web3.
However, everything else is subject to change as we learn and move along.
In this issue, instead of the usual how-to guide, we’ll unpack the last week in the web3 creator economy.
Feel free to share your feedback on this and other changes that may come. 🙏
Here’s what happened in an action-packed week for web3.
