Dear Bankless Nation,

At university, my capstone project centered around the work of French philosopher Jacques Derrida.

Derrida’s notion of the future, l’avenir, has stuck with me ever since. To him, there were two futures. There was the “predictable, programmed, scheduled, foreseeable future,” and then there was the l’avenir, the future to come, which was “totally unpredictable.”

I think there’s a lot of lessons you can take away from this concept, from this idea of a “future that arrives that no one could have really anticipated.” The NFT ecosystem is no exception here. My grand point? Expect the unexpected, always and forever.

To me, Yuga Labs’s acquisition of Punks/Meebits was a case of l’avenir, I personally couldn’t have anticipated it. Yet this move has reconfigured the entire NFT ecosystem’s chessboard, so to speak, so we have to catch up to the reality on the ground. And we’re all doing so right now!

Anyways that’s my two gwei for this weekend, thanks for reading everyone, and be sure to keep your eyes toward the horizon 🙏
