The past two weeks have been a journey in the tech industry— from FTX’s demise to massive industry layoffs and an $8 blue check mark gone wrong on Twitter, it’s been tumultuous, to say the least. One thing that has remained constant in the chatter, is the need for a shift; a movement of “tech and blockchain done right”.
In this edition, we’re heading “Back to the Future” just like Marty and Doc. Right now, there’s a lot of skepticism about “Crypto” and there should be. Tim and Dan shared on many World from Here episodes that greed, non-existent business shit coins, speculation and overpriced apes wouldn’t last, but the real underlying blockchain technology would shape the future.
To Tim and Dan, it was deja vu to circa 1998 leading up to the 2000 dot com crash. Similarly, the powerhouse companies of the future will emerge from this new tech as Google and Netflix did back then. Once again, the shape of the tech industry is shifting - the need for shielding us from fraud, protecting our own data, and eliminating big centralized control with the breaches that expose us.
There’s a movement for decentralization, and to be actively involved in a truthful, more transparent internet. Ripping on his rock and roll guitar solo, Marty says, “I guess you guys aren’t ready for that yet. But your kids are going to love it.” His sentiment applies to technology growth every cycle - think about how people believe no one would ever pay for items on the internet, and now it’s second nature.
2023 is the year. It’s the year for the paradigm shift away from crypto hype and big tech, to blockchain and the authenticated internet. It’s time to hand the control back to the people. To save, protect and deliver new solutions without handcuffs and fees that made Silicon Valley rich.
So, jump in the DeLorean and see how you and your kids can be ready for the Web 4.0 movement as thoughts shift back to the future, and BlockCerts leads the charge with the time machine!
1). Elon is Right About One Thing… If He Really Had It
Elon’s $8 verification blue check turned out to be one of the biggest fiascos in social media history. His vision is right on, but his execution, well, you know the story. What he did get right is the need for authentication, if he only had the solution to verify real people to charge his $8.
Watch the latest World From Here, as Founder Tim Vasko explains how everyone that does ANYTHING on the internet, should be using a trust autonomous internet.
There’s a lot of noise in the crypto space right now, and the blockchain “OGs” are calling for “back to basics”. In the last few years, the spotlight shined on crypto, when the real story should have been about the blockchain. That underlying technology is quietly changing businesses from Morgan Stanley, to Abacus Insurance, to now small business owners.
There’s so much more opportunity for transformation aside from digital currency and the crypto hype of the past. Move over crypto and shine the light on the real transformation called Blockchain.
This month’s FTX debacle is the Poster Child for the outgoing Centralization model. When you hand over your control to a Centralized authority, you’re at the mercy of their control (or lack of control).
What happened? How can we avoid this mistake in the future? What needs to change and what’s the solution? Why is big Centralization out and how is the landscape changing now, right under our feet?
What do Tesla and BlockCerts have in common? Aside from being tech geniuses obviously ;) In Tim’s latest blog post, see how the foundations of BlockCerts sound eerily similar to one of the largest car companies in the world.
After a short, but volatile debacle, on Monday Twitter got rid of the $8 check mark. Maybe next time, Twitter will roll out a real authentication process, you know, one that actually authenticates humans. We might know a company that they should talk to right? Read More:
