We couldn’t be more excited about the community that’s rapidly assembling with folks who share our passion to limit web3 hype, confusion + tribalism and double down on advancing knowledge and accessibility for all.

That’s why we couldn’t wait to share this post from Blockchain VC Christian Kameir of Sustany Capital in which he lays out 16 premises required for a sustainable information exchange system in service of returning the internet…to a utility for the exchange of knowledge and value.

Below are excerpts from Christian’s first 4 premises—a small sampling of juicy tidbits to whet your appetite for the full-course version of this thoughtfully constructed feast of guiding principles for web3:

Premise One: The internet, and World Wide Web, must be protected as an intellectual commons – a shared resource in which all stakeholders have equal interests and should therefore receive equal control.

Premise Two: Access to unfiltered and uncensored information via the web protects and promotes essential human interests, especially the unique human capacity for freedom (see the work of Andrew Fagan). Access to information has to be free.

Premise Three: As Plato explains in Theaetetus, Knowledge and access to information are the natural enemies of belief. Beliefs are the enemy of progress. In my own words: belief is simply the absence of knowledge. An effective information management system will be able to identify and discard information that violates basic principles of objectifiable reality or otherwise claim non-verifiable/falsifiable arguments and thus unscientific theory is not intrinsically false or inappropriate, however, as metaphysical theories might be true or contain truth, and are required to help inform science or structure scientific theories.

Premise Four: Evolutionary organization of information cannot be democratic and must follow logic and peer review not popularism. As Isaac Newton expressed: “We are all standing on the shoulders of giants”. No progress can be made without reading and understanding the research and works created by notable thinkers of the past.

Thank you, Christian. We couldn’t agree more! For the full version of Christian’s post that was originally published on Hackernoon, go here.

And if you want more of Christian, be sure to grab your ticket to the web3summit in San Diego May 18-20 where you can hear him speak and meet him in person.

  1. Web3 is going to be very interesting to see it evolve and grow. Humans are perfectly imperfect, so will web3 be a window to a realm of development in a healthy direction for mankind, or will it be a place for dog eat dog cesspool??? To be specific I would like to see web 3 bring more attention to integrative medicine medicine that may not be mainstream at all times but medicine that works regardless of where it comes from or who it comes from and what they look like. I would also like to see with three finally destroy thoughts of supremacy regarding the exterior of humans rather than the interior of the spirit within humans. I would also like to see web 3 cultivate unity of all humans as we are all related to each other one way or the other and I believe that if we treat each other with love kindness respect and insightfulness we can all have successful relationships with each other no matter what background we come from.
