If a user has to pay to be part of web3, and if web3 is the future of the internet, it’s easy to see a future where the average consumer is completely blocked from participating. It seems like we’re in line to experience an internet where having more money very directly translates to having the power in one’s online community. An explicitly classed internet. Kind of sounds like hell.

Yep.
