RE: What is the Future of POB?
I think that one of the core problems that caused this issue, is that money is a incomplete / failed representation of value. One that has since just been accepted, even when we see glaring issues of how it fails to measure the true value of things, and more importantly actions.
Most people have been trained since they were young to think in monetary value, rather than conscious value. Just look at how most people respond to a kid when they say what they want to be when they grow up, suggesting they be something that makes more money, if they don't pick something with a promising career behind it.
That all being said, i think crypto is the closest thing we've had to a change in the concept of value. Sure at the moment most people are directing most of that attention to meme coins with dogs on them, but it shows how much PAYING attention to something can translate to value. So next thing we need to do is build a system to better measure value, so that we can get rewarded for doing the right things, rather than the selfish thing.
