Web3 is more than any other industry. Web3 is a result of science fiction and storytellers. They created digital worlds developers are trying to replicate. At Camp Decrypt, a group of Web3 creators and futurists—including Jason Michael Primrose, Amanda Terry, Artemysia-X, and Kas Vegas—sat down with moderator Shira Lazar to discuss storytelling in Web3.
“[205Z] was my anchor into Web3,” said Primrose, author of 205Z – Time and Salvation LorePlay is LorePlay’s co-host on Rug Radio. “Imagine a futuristic, sci-fi world that you can collect.”
Primrose believes storytelling is freedom. Being able to tap into his imagination gave him the ability and the opportunity to create anything.
Primrose said, “In claiming and storytelling my writing power, it opened up to me freedom in terms of technology lifestyle and relationships.”

Web3 stands on giants’ shoulders. Science fiction played an important but under-appreciated part in the development of digital currency, art and the increasing number of projects that call themselves Web3. The artificial intelligence of Isaac Asimov and William Gibson’s cyberspace. Neal Stephenson’s metaverse.
ArtemysiaX, a digital nomad like Primrose, began her story-telling journey before she joined Web3.
She said that Web3 was the best model for authors to create websites. [intellectual property] That they control the future and are able to have it all.”
Artemysia-X started the collaboration storytelling project “The Book of Worlds” on June 20, 2021.
ArtemysiaX stated, “I am passionate about multiplayer media. It was first invented by Tim Shel.” “Immersive, participatory experience, that’s how i got started building rewards programmes for Rug Radio.
ArtemysiaX believes that Web3’s storytelling is what interests her most. She has used many blockchains to create digital content. ArtemysiaX, in addition to programming, is also the author behind the site. Saiba Gang Manga using the Solana Blockchain and is a Loremaster for many projects including the Cybervillainz NFT Collection from Broccoli AAO and co-host of Rug Radio’s LorePlay podcast.
ArtemysiaX stated that Web3 is driven by the community. “When a participant creates value, it’s only fair that they get value back.”
ArtemysiaX claims that attention is the new oil and people who give their attention to these projects are creating something of extraordinary value.
Primrose stated, “Literature as an art form is often forgotten.” Primrose stated, “When we think of what’s fundamental to everything from music and movie scripts, it all starts with writing.”
Primrose claims there is an opportunity for literature and literacy to be championed, and brought into the technological world first rather than last.
He said, “Literature might not be as sexy or as music.” “But it’s still strong; we should be champions of that and empower people create stories related to technology.”
Kas Vegas, head for community at Feature said, “Technology must move in parallel to the creative side.” He was also the creator of “Huxley,” an Ethereum NFT comic by Ben Mauro, which is dedicated to nonfungible tokens, and the future intellectual property rights. “While many are focused on how lucrative NFTs can be, what attracted my attention to the space was the problems.”
She claimed that the problem was due to a lack of diversity in the space.
Vegas stated, “So for Feature, Huxley, and Ben Morrow, who did Call of Duty, Halo infinite, and Halo infinite, we took a huge Web2 artist, Ben Morrow,” “We brought him into this insane universe where we promised him all that community that we’d rebuild from scratch even though he came from a big community.
Vegas stated that “No one was doing IP or licensing on-chain.” The blockchain can be seen as a public ledger of transactions. But, what else is possible on the blockchain to make transparent? Can we make licensing and IP transactions transparent? It’s the perfect balance of tech and creativity working together to push the boundaries and meet halfway.
Amanda Terry, On-Chain Monkey’s COO, stated that “So in terms storytelling and the creatives who have been involved in our communities, we basically literally came out of our community, our Karma collection.” Terry noted that the on-chain sale of a NFT for an on chain monkey raised 12.5ETH. UNICEF’s Gigaconnect project, which connects schools across the globe, was funded by proceeds of the auction.
Terry said, “One more example for storytelling,” adding, “Last weekend, Julia Landauer was a female driver in a NASCAR racing race. We have an on-chain monkey on her vehicle. We created racing jackets and Fred Segal will sell them. Julia will receive 95% and 5% to a STEM nonprofit she supports.
Primrose refers to his book series, “The Lost Children of Andromeda”, as a path of freedom via literature. It is possible to have millions of followers, but it is not as important or achievable to have a dedicated group of readers.
“[Having] He said that there are a thousand to two hundred people who would like to read my stories and make a living from it. “People can do this.”
Primrose says that the idea behind the “Lost Children” ecosystem is to build a community that can create stories and is interested in the future of the world as they are a part. Primrose imagines this community being tokenized and read-to earn system, where readers can collect collectibles by reading their favorite books.
ArtemysiaX’s goal is to democratize storytelling, not keep it in corporate silos. Artemysia X stated, “Culture can be described as a story.”
THIS is what I’m truly passionate about giving to the Rug Radio community and the NFT space as a whole:
-Decentralized business development and value distribution through peer-to–peer marketing
Primrose stated that Web3 was about freedom, based on the current crop stand-alone “metaverses.” Primrose isn’t satisfied with the idea of Web3 being free, but he questions how libertarian we can be if digital worlds are ours.
Primrose stated that the goal should have been to create a virtual environment where people can explore, interact with other people, and thrive.
Primrose stated, “The philosophy behind Web3 seems interesting and a little utopian.” “But if our minds are enslaved, it doesn’t matter what freedoms we have outside of ourselves.”
