“Some struggle w this idea bc they want to know what is it you actually own? But ppl of a younger generation don’t. It’s an old-world idea wanting to hold something in your hand, as if the intangible or immaterial doesn’t have value” @ArweaveTeam @opensea theguardian.com/artanddesign…

I'm so excited to announce @a16z's investment in @opensea, the largest NFT marketplace. It provides the needed link between the consumer & infrastructure layers for digital goods, allowing people to search items across platforms & view their provenance a16z.com/2021/03/18/investin…

2/ Digital goods are jumpstarting new business models for content creators, and now those goods are organized in a single, trusted marketplace. Think Zillow for real estate + eBay or Amazon for everything digitally scarce.
