Pi Day - Read Together Art Sneak Peek

How are you doing? 

Image reads: "How are you doing" in yellow text on a black background

The last week or so has been nothing short of tumultuous, in Web3 and in the overall financial ecosystem as a whole. Personally, I haven't been directly impacted by all of the banking debacles, but the indirect impact will certainly continue to reveal itself over time.And for me, it's a heavy thing to carry.I've noticed my jaw is clenched more than normal (which is saying a lot, because I'm always carrying stress in my jaw).Which made me wonder - how are you doing?Like really really.Are you doing ok?If you need a friend to chat with, please don't hesitate to reach out.I might not have any solutions, but I have two ears (and eyes) and would love to be a friend to you if you need someone to chat with.

It's Pi Day! 3.14159.....

Yellow text on a black background with a LOT of decimals of Pi. 3.14159........

How many decimals of Pi can you recite without looking right now? (Probably should have put the image below this question...)I got as far as 3.14159, which is either exactly as far as I learned back in elementary school, or my subconscious memory picking it up from seeing it online somewhere.Just for fun, I wanted to put Pi on the blockchain.Why?There's a bit of irony here.Scarcity mindset is abundant in society, particularly in western culture.While we don't have time to go into the why behind that in this newsletter, I believe that Web3 is missing on an opportunity to help us break the cycle that scarcity mindset often creates."Grab your piece of the pie" can be replaced with the sentiment that "There is more than enough pie to go around" in Web3, and that still gives me hope for the future of decentralization and ownership as a whole. (yeah, you can probably tell I've been thinking about this a lot since the SVB news)Pi is never ending. And while it technically has a limited supply in this mint, this project symbolizes the abundance nature of Web3. There's more than enough Pi to go around (because it never ends), and I think that's a message we all need to hear today.
