Top-shelf Educational Web3 Content Shipped Directly to Your Inbox
Dear Bankless Readers 🏴
To earn in web3, it’s likely most of us will need to learn some new skills or at least further our understanding of blockchain — not only the basic ‘mechanics’ but also some potential use cases for this revolutionary technology.
Our most recent collection of articles are loosely grouped around the theme of learning and earning in web3. If you’re just getting started, you might be looking for resources for learning to code in Solidity or wanting to improve the quality of your writing. You may already be deep into DAOs but needing a change in direction or some guidance on maintaining your spark in this fast-paced, 24/7 environment.
The future looks bright for the application of blockchain technology to numerous industries beyond decentralized finance. Read about the potential for web3 to shift economic activity away from the hierarchical structures we know so well, and usher in opportunities for free markets to shine.
This recap is a convenient way to access all our recent articles, but if you prefer to read Bankless Publishing while it’s sizzling hot off the press, follow us on Twitter or come and join us in Discord.

✍️ Article Summaries
Burnout is a common issue faced by many people in the web3 space who are involved in multiple Discord communities, with various tasks and responsibilities. To avoid burnout, the author suggests strategies such as attending only critical weekly meetings, choosing a favorite DAO to focus on, and prioritizing asynchronous work.
“DAOs follow the sun with their efforts, and are not optimized for worldwide synchronous sessions. Finding ways to enhance efforts being equally valuable any time they are contributed is a key value-set for successful projects.”

Web3, the next generation of the internet, has the potential to create a more virtuous economy through decentralization and shared ownership. There are three forms of economic coordination: hierarchies, markets, and networks. Web3 has the potential to disrupt networks through decentralization and enable markets through automation and permissionless participation.
“As it becomes possible to outsource more tasks with more flexibility through on-chain marketplaces, the costs associated with coordinating production via market forces will fall relative to the costs of coordinating production hierarchically. More capable markets, enabled by blockchain, will incentivize a shift towards marketplaces and away from top-down control.”

Solidity is a programming language used to create smart contracts in the web3 ecosystem. To effectively learn Solidity, it is important to follow a structured learning approach that covers the fundamentals of the language as well as the underlying technology: blockchain. Attention to detail is also crucial in order to develop sustainable projects and prevent vulnerabilities.
“The resources in this article, including free courses, books, and subject matter experts, will help you to properly learn Solidity using approaches that suit your learning style. Don’t forget to keep experimenting with practical application of your skills too, so that you can gain real world experience.”

This article is written for writers in the web3 community and highlights the importance of taking the time to produce original and credible material. The author suggests writers consider the acronym R.E.A.L., which stands for Reading/Research, Evaluation/Evidence, Attribution, and Links. These elements overlap and are essential to providing context, understanding the subject, and avoiding plagiarism in writing.
“Writing is not compiling. To draw an analogy to cake-making: writing is not about adding all the ingredients together in the bowl and presenting it to the fam for dessert. It’s an act of sifting, mixing, taste testing (of course), and refining the ingredients to produce a delicious, unique, and more-ish cake. Now … does my analogy stretch to cover plagiarism too? Why yes, it does. Plagiarism is akin to buying the cake from the store and telling the fam that you made it yourself, and taking credit for it, too.”
