I don’t think people have a problem with the technology; rather, they have a problem with its current applications and that’s why the conversation always gets muddied.
Why would I want to spend thousands to own a Bored Ape, buy land on decentraland and then put it up on my wall there? What value does this provide to anyone besides the buyer believing that those assets will appreciate in value? We’ve been hearing about the blockchain for a decade now and besides currencies appreciating in value, there are still very few real-life applications the layman can point to and confidently state: here is where this technology has concretely improved the lives of many. Does it mean that it’ll never happen? No! But since nobody knows where this is going and that money is all that everyone ever wants to speak about, incredulity and weariness are natural reactions. This discussion is taking up so much more air than necessary when all the technology has to show for itself are pokemon-card-like collectibles, so far.
