I was/am struggling to comprehend issues around NFT’s, chains and DAO’s, and hoped reariting the conversation would clear up my mind.

> Reariting is the act of simultaneous reading and writing together on the Internet. Reariting is used as a technique to think through a text together. While we read the conversation, we will all use the same framapad to write our reactions and asides related to this text. Thus we explain and explore our understandings and misunderstandings of the text .
