The bullshit part is assuming that minimal use cases today will turn into extraordinary change in the future, because the internet took a similar path.

On the one hand it is true that we cannot fully predict exactly what new use cases of crypto will exist 10 years from now.

On the other hand, Magic Leap had a similar pitch for how world changing their technology was going to be in the future.

Another thing that is bullshit is the Web3 crowd taking credit for things that have existed for many years. Just look at DAOs. Co-Ops, LLCs, Non-Profits have existed forever and have provided very useful governance, Just because DAOs can also provide useful governance, doesn't mean that they invented the concept of shared governance.
