No trading means no ownership; you can’t have one without the other.


The combined revenue of the five largest social networks—Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, and Twitter—is about $150 billion per year. Nearly all major social networks have “take rates”—the percentage of revenue network owners take from network users—of 100 percent, or near to it. (YouTube is the one outlier with a take rate of 45 percent, for reasons we’ll get into later.) This means the vast majority of that $150 billion goes to those companies instead of the users, creators, and entrepreneurs who contribute, build on top, and create value for all.


Building true communities is the best way to go viral.


There is a risk of plutocracy, where big token holders could co-opt the network. The best way to mitigate this risk is with a broad distribution of tokens. Token ownership should be widespread across the community such that no voting bloc has too much power.


Occasionally, Google breaks the covenant. One of the worst things that can happen to a website is “one-boxing,” when Google extracts a site’s content and places a summary at the top of its search results so users no longer need to click to get an answer. Searches related to movies, lyrics, or restaurants are commonly one-boxed. For startups that are dependent on Google for traffic, one-boxing is a death sentence. Sadly, I’ve seen this happen to a few companies I’ve been involved with. Traffic evaporates overnight and, with it, revenue.


If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men and women to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea. —Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
