Whenever I hear web3 I want to jump off a cliff. Seriously. I love decentralization, I am currently developing an indie web platform, but crypto makes me irrationally mad. I have never been so fired up at anything. If the web becomes primarily crypto based, I will quit my job and become a ski instructor. Fuck Ethereum, the drug cryptocurrency. Fuck Smart contracts and fuck all the people who manipulate people into NFT scams. Fuck all the people who fell for NFT scams. I just want it to be over. Now back to sdf. org
You might be interested in interledger if you make websites, I make about 15$ a week off of users with coil just by setting up an interledger pointer.
Yes! I think for me it is better than bandcamp, the perfect combination between streaming and ownership. I joined the coop, (5$ membership + some shares). I hope extra funding can help them market themselves and get their service on the streaming service lists that publishers/indie artists use to launch the album on many platforms, because at the moment there is not much of my style of music.
I have conflicting feelings though, I like the spotlight on indie, but I am not sure how well it will work for the platform’s growth to only have artists no one has heard of. I think ideally we have an indie only section and then the hybrid section with a bit of everything
Edit: Bandcamp is closed source!
