"I believe we are just getting started with Web 3 and Ethereum, and we haven't even seen the full capacity of what it is capable of enabling, just like we hadn't seen anything yet in 1993 with Web 1.0 or in 2005 with Web 2.0. And the best way to choose which project to invest in is to ask yourself: does it compose?"

Whistleblower Blows Lid on the Decentralized Internet: An Interview with Mr. X by @metamark has won the second position!

Freedom. Which sounds trivial, as if I am using the technology of the future as a means to collective liberty. The global population are, for better or worse, heading towards a 22nd century lived almost exclusively in the Metaverse, a digital landscape where art, entertainment, culture, and social connections are created, sustained, and ended in binary. If that future is decentralised then it can be free, or at least contain more sustainable liberty.

The choice is inherent.

You can also enter the decentralized internet writing contest through this writing prompt.

In the third place, we have The Internet is Broken, But The Metaverse and Web 3.0 Could be the Solution by @futuristiclawyer

''Mark Zuckerberg’s vision of The Metaverse could provide a foresight of where things are heading on the internet’s current path. The idea of “the metaverse” is not something that frightens me in itself. Rather, I think we should be acutely wary of the companies that design it. The addictive quality of social platforms, coupled with the privacy-intrusive ways major technology companies extract user data, should be a major concern for everyone.''
