I just published this week's newsletter. We take a deep dive into onchain publishing and some related issues and opportunities. What's covered: *Is onchain publishing a new media model or just a new tech stack? *Should everything published onchain also be archived forever?

Here's the result. Lots of wrestling with the concept, but I'm still on the fence about the idea of a permaweb as a default for internet publishing. https://www.danielmcglynn.com/arweave-and-the-idea-of-the-permaweb/

Hey team /words I'm writing a post about the permaweb and I was hoping to get some thoughts from others. It looks like the default for onchain publications is that posts are archived via arweave and basically become a permanent record. Curious to hear how you all feel about this. Thx

So I'm writing a series about moving onchain and what that means and what it all looks like. I got started on Paragraph and hope to publish a piece there soon, but in the meantime, there's this: https://www.danielmcglynn.com/words-onchain-paragraph/

Once I realized that crypto was more than just a new form of money. To borrow some tech jargon, I figured out crypto is actually a full-stack situation. There's a money layer and and data/information layer that when combined allow people to create, distribute, monetize, and own everything from ideas to real assets.

For the prompt: What gets me excited about crypto? Everyday tools and networks will be permissionless. And that great opportunities will no longer be reserved only for "accredited investors." Also, it's a new way to organize around interest, culture, and community instead of having to fit into massive platforms.

Continuing with the "how to get onchain" series and taking a deeper dive into NFTs and I'm looking for examples or creators of text-based mints. Artifacts like blog posts, quotes, long reads, poems, six-word stories, whatever. Where should I look?

Sometimes I wish I was better at creating simple sketches. Most of my work involves writing about complex topics. Sometimes I visualize those topics as illustrations (like maybe a flow chart or a diagram) and then use that to write. I don't actually make the sketches, but recently I've been thinking maybe I should.

Yesterday's newsletter included a profile of /receipts. My main takeaway is that it's pretty cool to have "proof-of-workout" in a wallet. It was also fun thinking about all of the other stuff an app like Receipts will make possible. I'm looking for ideas for other great onchain apps to profile next...

I'm working on a small series. The basic idea is a grip of guides that act like a "how to get onchain" starter pack. I'm doing short profiles of non-financial onchain apps. The goal is to help people who are interested or curious to take the next step. What are your favorites? What do you recommend I include?

It's pretty wild to think about all of the infrastructure in development to bring RWAs onchain. Oracles, attestation services, etc., all kinds of interesting projects and ideas that could be market defining, but that can also operate lean and without a lot of flashy marketing.

Last week I wrote two posts. The first was about the excitement around Base. The second was about BlackRock following up its successful ETF launch with a new fund to tokenized RWAs. It didn't occur to me until I was writing the latest issue of Open Money how connected the two are... The world is moving onchain.

If your team is moving (As), it’s like open enrollment, right? I get to switch allegiance without any issues? Or is there some fine print I need to know about?

Saw a new course about how to make memes. Thinking about packing in the writing thing.

I believe in triangulation. It's a great way to navigate when all else fails. That's how I got here: Being a memelord is for sure an employable skill. Maybe it will be the ultimate way to compete with AI. Anyway, I saw at least three job-related posts mentioning memes today, which brings us back to triangulation.
