Is Arweave Crypto's Darkhorse L1? | 1000x

In today's episode of 1000x Jonah and Avi are joined by Sam Williams, founder of Arweave, to dive deep into the decentralized data storage protocol that is quickly becoming the backbone of Web3. Sam explains Arweave's unique approach to permanent, low-cost storage, its scalability, and the new possibilities it enables. He discusses the evolution of the Arweave ecosystem, from NFT storage to decentralized social apps, composable data, and AI-driven smart contracts on the Arweave Operating System (AO). Sam also shares his vision for the "perm web", a revolutionized internet where users truly own their data, and the potential of an "agent economy" powered by autonomous, AI-based financial agents. Enjoy!
