Hi everyone! I have been talking about P3D, POWH.io, and FOMO3D for about a month or so now to anyone who will listen. I have suffered many eye rolls at what a fool I am to be taken in by this OBVIOUS ponzi… but I persisted. I wasn’t going to let close minded thinking shut me down! I thought it was an exciting project and experiment. Hopefully you guys agree!
It was good to hear Kingsley’s perspective, as he is the bringer of P3D to me, as well as one of my first Bitcoin friends. Preston was a great skeptic, and was chosen for his tweet a few weeks ago around when P3D was popping. Petros brought in the dev perspective. Josh was a bit skeptical, but def intrigued. Where did we end up after the convo? I don’t know, but it was a cool exploration!
We also had on Sharon from Chicago Blockchain Project. Check out the conference this weekend Aug 24-25! I can’t wait to perform, and I know I have some cool panels with some other neat music/blockchain projects. The vibe in Chicago is awesome, and I love Navy Pier, especially the ferris wheel!
