If last year told me a 100+ people would be involved in permissionlessly created groups furthering the Farcaster protocol, I wouldn’t have believed you. Success for a decentralized social network means no one node has outsized influence. It might be messy, but this is what the decentralizing process looks like.
need more data might've been a fluke
agreed beef is good for farcaster
Three critical elements essential to the long term success: 1. protocol itself is 100% permissionless later this year and a path to self-funding a core team separate from any one company 2. an ecosystem of independent apps and services funded by a variety of sources 3. quality daily active user growth
From an outsider perspective. We are onto something, a decentralized social platform supported and developed by motivated individuals. Farcaster is evolving and continue to be so in coming day. But i still remain skeptical, scaling and monetization remains my biggest concern.
we doin good, congrats to the team!
Great work you're doing 👏
