Howdy friend,

The web3 world is moving faster than ever. It's challenging to keep up with the day-to-day, let alone have a minute to think about the future.

Thankfully, Framework Ventures has outlined its vision for the next several years and are backing up its research with $1.4 billion in AUM — with investments in blockchain gaming, web3, and DeFi startups.

It's a fascinating glimpse into the future of a decentralized web and, frankly, something more Web 2.0 practitioners should start investigating. It feels like a groundswell of change is coming, and I'm here for it.

High fives,
