P-011: The Week In Web3 (April 17-23, 2023)

Bluesky on Android, Paragraph Collectible Posts, Zora Zine Print Issue 001, and more


A warm welcome to everyone who joined us in the last two weeks.

“Once the motivation stop the discipline kick in.” ― Babyface Ray

To be honest, I’ve been feeling really disillusioned with the web3 space lately.

From airdrop farming to memecoins, it feels like speculation has fully taken over and “real” work doesn't get noticed at all.

It’s quite frustrating for anyone who’s in crypto mainly for the tech and the utility it provides.

Nothing good comes easy though. We ain’t going nowhere (in Diddy’s voice). 😂

Also, I apologize for skipping the report last week. I was away the weekend before for a close friend’s wedding and had my hands full with groomsman duties.

Let’s dive into today’s letter!
