As a Web3 project, because it allows people to make money, even if it is extremely centralized and so blatant, few people criticize it. Instead, it has been praised by many buyers. Some people even say that it is building a community. This operation makes the “community more harmonious”, which is an interesting phenomenon. .
(Summary of the previous situation: Arabian style free NFT “The Saudis” became popular! The transaction volume in four days exceeded 7.64 million US dollars, and it reached the No. 2 position in OpenSea)
In the Crypto world, when we refer to “sharding”, what people usually think of is blockchain sharding technology. Fragmentation can greatly improve the processing speed of blockchain transactions. Blockchain researcher HITer compares it to the opening of countless new toll gates on a highway, and people do not need to queue up at a toll gate.
This is an announcement from The Saudis team on Discord. To put it simply, a scientist pocketed a large number of NFTs when The Saudis opened Free Mint, and placed orders to ship when the price of The Saudis rose. The Saudis team took action after finding out, and put the more than 200 NFTs into the bag. NFTs are locked, and scientists can only place orders but cannot sell.
In fact, as NFTs gradually break the circle, more and more project parties will design various mechanisms at the time of sale to prevent scientists from casting a large number of NFTs through some technical means, so as to avoid the market price when scientists sell NFTs in batches for profit. Impact. People often regard NFT as a sign of the confirmation of virtual assets. Since it is their own assets, they should be free to trade in the secondary market, but this “punishment measure” by The Saudis team can’t help but raise doubts.
In the comment area of The Saudis Twitter, some onlookers have left messages saying that this is “too centralized” and that he should enjoy “freedom of trading”. For these remarks, some netizens who used The Saudis NFT as their avatars gave replied as follows:
“If the project party does not lock these NFTs, the price will collapse.”
As a Web3 project, because it allows people to make money, even if it is extremely centralized and so blatant, few people criticize it. Instead, it has been praised by many buyers. Some people even say that it is building a community. This operation makes the “community more harmonious”, which is an interesting phenomenon.
It’s really hard to trace the origin. I don’t know when people stopped paying attention to the decentralization of the project, and they didn’t care what rights they could exercise over the NFT they held. They only focused on how much money the project made. As for the NFT that is locked by the project party and cannot be traded, it has nothing to do with it anyway, and it hangs high.
So after the price went up, Holder said: “I love this project so much.”; After the price went up, some media and KOLs began to help the project narrative; after the price went up, people began to talk about this community forging a strong consensus .
In the beginning, the consensus refers to the recognition of the values of the project party and hope to grow together with the project. Now, people’s consensus on some projects has become “We all think that the price will increase” or “The project party will let us. make money”. Not long ago, I saw a research and analysis of a project written by a netizen. The article described the project information in large paragraphs, and in the most important part of the analysis, the author focused on “the project side is likely to pull the plate”. a little.
In fact, building a community, experiencing culture, and making money, no matter what kind of “consensus” is generated, there is no right or wrong, it is only the result of consensus fragmentation. In the overall consensus on a certain project, these consensus shards do not seem to have short-board effects.
So we see that when BAYC, whose board price is as high as 100 ETH and has huge influence, is pointed out that it may be promoting Nazism, people spontaneously refute these theories. Although the price fell for a short time, it quickly returned to its original state; Although very popular projects are unsatisfactory in terms of market value management and prices have fallen sharply, they still maintain a good community atmosphere, and many people are willing to participate in the activities held; Mfer After the founder Sartoshi announced his retirement, some people said that this Equivalent to Rugpull, but the mfer community still maintains autonomy and continues to demonstrate great influence in the Web 3 world.
Although the consensus from money fame, community and culture are different shards, they also affect the project itself. Running one of the three roads is enough to give the project a foundation for long-term development. Remember the analogy at the beginning of the article, driving through one toll gate is enough, you don’t need to go through each toll gate.
When we can understand consensus sharding, it is not difficult to understand the value of the three roles of Flipper, Diamond Hand and Builder in the Web3 world. Flipper provides liquidity for the project, Diamond Hand is the most solid foundation of a project, and Builder spreads a better reputation for the project through its own construction. There was a lot of debate about these three roles, and it seemed that they wanted to prove that there is a pros and cons between the three, but in fact they just chose different shards in the process of forming a consensus on a project.
What exactly are we talking about when we talk about “consensus”? Maybe we can give an answer now.
