Crypto Apocalypse Did Not Come (Yet). We Are Just at the Fall of the Babel Tower

The whole world spoke the same language, using the same buzzwords. While men were migrating from CeFi (and TradiFi), they came upon a valley in the land of blockchain and settled there. They said to one another, “Come, let us mold DAOs and put tokens into Locked Staking They used DeFi for finance, and tokens for fiat money.

Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a Metaverse and a tower of cryptos its top on the moon, and so make a name for ourselves; otherwise, we shall be dominated by the powerful.”

Humility came down to see the Metaverse and the Crypto Tower that the men had built.

Then Humility said: “If now, while they are one people, all speaking the same language, they have started to do this virtual world, nothing will later stop them from doing whatever they presume to do with Web3.

Let us then go down and there confuse their language, so that one will not understand what another says.”

Thus, Humility scattered them from there all over the Metaverse, and they stopped building the Crypto Tower.***

Not all collapses are negative. The Babel Tower or the Berlin Wall are some examples. Some collapses are necessary: they purify, renew and transform the suffering. The world does not end. From disunity a new unity always arises, one that spreads and another that collects. The spread gives a bath of humility while the unification grants a peace of mind.

Even though universal brotherhood is the greatest desire of and for men, Humility wanted to confuse them. The variety of languages is a divine punishment. Pride and self-exaltation distance man from Humility, that the misused unit is the enemy of Humility. The original unit, humble and obedient, was perverted by pride and vainglory.

To return to the union it is necessary to do it from the sincerest humility, without perversions or conceit. For this, each rupture, each failure is a new learning to return to unity from universal mutual respect, without leaving anyone out.

The unnecessarily large and arrogant Crypto Tower is going to fall. The focus will have to be on ensuring that the blockchain tool becomes universal. Before that happens, the fantasy of reaching, not to the sky, but to the moon of DeFi, tokens and the Metaverse will fall, brick by brick.

Breaks open a crack for humility to flourish. The inflation of pride always ends, either voluntarily or forcibly.
