Is this the beginning of our white paper? Or is it my sci-fi / visionary fiction rendition of our onchain future? Only time will tell
The grain has sprouted but was never harvested, and has since returned to the earth to feed mycelial networks below. We may never punctuate the earth but we will always remain a thriving ecosystem underground.
This project began as an investment and it began with a pseudo-token to represent that investment in a future of productionization and civility. That future was represented by Grain.
But it took a turn… and Grain was close to becoming nothing but ROT.
Some argue the grain never sprouted, that the seeds were dead in the ground, that there was a late frost and no new growth was able to penetrate the earth as a result. But those of us underground in the grassroots, the granitic sands, and the subterranean tributaries know that the ground is fertile and rich and the only way to keep the heartbeat of the underground alive is to feed the mycelium.
The Grain is gone and it’s nutrients have led to the emergence of robust networks of MYCelium. And so MYC was born.
