The Eruption of Non-Fungible Tokens (NTFs)

We need a name for a new secure, sapient 3D internet.

Web 3.0, as they say on Wikipedia, is where “virtually enhanced physical reality” converges with “physically persistent virtual space.”

It follows the web pages of Web 1.0 from Timothy Berners Lee, and the mobile platforms of Web 2.0 with its Apple and Android apps, with a new Web offering virtual and augmented reality interfaces and blockchain foundations.

For those who’ve noticed a dilatory pattern in my recent prophecies, I’ve been reading books (and writing one!).

The reading list includes The Spatial Net by Dan Mapes and Gabriel Rene, The Infinite Retina by Irena Cronin and Robert Scoble, and The Token Economy by Shernin Yoshmgir.

They all make important contributions, but Rene and Mapes offer the most visionary and comprehensive scenario; Cronin and Scoble provide the most business details and strategies; and Yoshmgir drills in on the new universal state machine of the blockchain and its tokens.

I have been thrilled to see the eruption of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) from my 20-year investment Otoy and its ingenious founder CEO Jules Urbach.
