Web3 is the weird place ever. A bunch of people got together to build something that may or may not work.

So why is Web3 the future?

Death of an expert

Who claimed to be an expert? Unfortunately, there are more and more experts on the internet. Watching YouTube for 10 minutes can boost your confident 100%, and watching a week of YouTube has prepared you to teach the rest of the internet how things work.

What makes an expert, then? If you can tell everything that the internet is searchable may not make you the one.

You probably will consider an expert is someone who can provide answers precisely and quickly.

It is not. An expert is a person who can question precisely such field and research depths to provide plausible solutions and make solutions workable.

Precision Matters

1.jpg The problem of the internet, particularly with YouTube guru channels, is that they present them as experts on some kind and get very general solutions to the problem that sound precise. However, because many of us do not have a background in such subject matters, it makes us fall within the expert trap and believe them to sound correct.

2.jpg Because we did not spend time around the subject, we had no specific expectations about what will happen rather than believing someone told us what would happen.

Scientific Inquiry vs. Guesstimate

There are usually 6 steps to discovering the truth through:

  1. Observe and Ask Question: in this stage, we think about a question because of our observations
  2. Research: we research our question
  3. Formulate a Hypothesis: we come up with a theory
  4. Test your Hypothesis: we test our theory in a fair and unbiased way
  5. Conclude: we conclude a result of our research
  6. Share Results: we share our idea with other people

However, many of the internet shares guesstimate results and skip step 4.

They offer solutions without possible persistence and observe the conclusion they make.

When the internet was doing guesstimate, we made fun of them.

When the government started doing guesstimate, we should be worried.

And that is precisely we are heading into serious trouble when the government is guesstimating our economy.
