Democratic Blogging - A very brief overview of Mirror.xyz
The oldest and longest format of the game, Test cricket, was first played in 1877 and while it is debatable on whether it is actually dying or not, even cricket legends agree that interest has gone down.
This fits well with how content over the internet has evolved, going from long-form blog posts to YouTube to shorts on TikTok.
Obviously, writing on the internet isn't dying, but just like Test cricket, people's interest has gone down.
Is blogging on its way to being run out?
Cryptocurrency and Democracy
So, how do you get these $WRITE coins? You have to enter into their weekly quasi-political race. You have to answer a simple question: "What would you like to use Mirror for?" and people vote for you.
Is this experiment in democracy working? Well, one person answered the question with a "¯_(ツ)_/¯" and got 2000+ votes.
Jokes aside, Mirror looks very promising as a merger of blockchain and content and has definitely interested me in learning about the crazy world of cryptocurrency and blockchain.
