Plunged into the Web3 project, we immediately faced an urgent need to expand our technical horizons constantly. If you aren’t a tech wiz, it’s easy to ‘trip over’ buzzwords repeatedly while immersing yourself in the content.

Experience taught me that when our curiosity is triggered, we are less likely to fall prey to confirmation bias (looking for information that supports our beliefs rather than for evidence suggesting we are wrong) and stereotyping people.
Curiosity has these positive effects because it leads us to generate alternatives. There is ample evidence to support that encouraging people to be curious generates workplace improvements.
As a result, I have teamed up with a colleague and a dear friend Tesha Teshanovich to bring together a research team that helped us structure the Web3 glossary. Initially, we struggled with the glossary concept as Web3 terms outside of the context are likely to miss the logical flow. After close consideration of alternatives, we agreed to structure the glossary around the Web3 stack.
