Jargon, explained simply

  • Crypto: previously colloquially referred to cryptography, now colloquially refers to cryptocurrency
  • Cryptocurrency: like digital tokens in a game, but on the blockchain.
  • Blockchain: a database intended to be distributed among many private parties
  • NFT: Like baseball cards traded digitally using the blockchain

My perspective

In general, I have more qualms than obligations with the cryptocurrency space—and it holds no real importance to me. The web is already open by default—and it’s about what you help others do.

However, I think this narrative has propagated enough to where it won’t die off anytime soon.
