When it comes to blockchain, the thing people talk about most — the price — is actually the least interesting part. Crypto conversations are too often about who’s up and who’s down, what to buy and what to sell, and today’s drama on Twitter.

No financial advice. Just conversations on the biggest ideas shaping the future of the internet. Web3 is complicated, but never boring.
