I don't know them and know zero about the backstory, but I feel for the founders/employees of Skiff. They built an incredible, principled product and did what I imagine felt like the right thing for everyone involved - yet the reaction to their acquisition was viscerally negative.

3M users is impressive (and this analogy sounds familiar). Though are decentralizing in the opposite order "For the moment, Bluesky controls the AT Protocol. Eventually ...Graber wants to transfer ownership to some kind of web standards body..."

It has commonplace to say 'crypto solves the AI content problem' - which is *half* true IMO. Cryptography does & blockchain is a necessary component - but you still need to solve the garbage-in, garbage out problem.

Not sure if @dwr.eth would agree, but IMO this chart is a strong counter-argument to some of the more common VC wisdom that you should only raise small amounts of VC at the outset. Great things can take a long time.

How could you look at the absolutely breathtaking pace of innovation all around us - AI, energy, biomedical, and even crypto - and not be inspired?

In the next 12 months, will more individual people complete a cryptographic signature via a passkey, or via an embedded or stand-alone blockchain wallet?

A product that doesn’t exist yet that I might just have to build: enabling people to hold self-custodied staked ETH in a tax efficient account (401k, IRA).

I am enjoying the VCs who dropped crypto instantly it wasn't hot to start tweeting about it again. When a market turns against you, it reveals if you were in a momentum trade or had conviction in something bigger.
