Yeah, if you're asking for my "sources" as to why I feel that way, I could definitely point you to a variety of articles, interviews, and general information that, all combined, lead me to this belief. But, honestly, it'd be a waste of time because I doubt you'd read/watch them. Not saying that as a knock to you in particular Izo , but I think really parsing the "cryptosphere" and it's future potential takes a deep dive, and deep dives take time and effort. If you aren't motivated to go digging on your own, somebody curating the info for you probably won't make a difference.
But really, you could sum up why you think it is so, instead of just doing a dear diary. Summarize the points, dude. You've read and, apparently, youtube'd a lot of info. Share the wealth.
Please explain how blockchain eliminates the need for corporate lawyers and/or legal compliance. The laws are still there regardless of what the tech does or doesn't do.People way, way smarter than I have a hard time breaking down the technical potential of Web3 into a concise summary, so I sure as fuck won't be able to do it. But I'll try and summarize my impressions at least, even though it will probably leave you with more questions than answers:
-Blockchain tech automates lots of processes that eliminate the need for middlemen. Importantly, it does so in a way that is extremely trustworthy and reliable, thanks (in part) to the immutability and distributed nature of the blockchain. Middlemen like governments, banks, and other organizations slow things down, drain resources, and put up roadblocks. Blockchain tech allows you to bypass many of these roadblocks.
-For example, if you want to set up a traditional company, you need to go through a painstaking process involving lawyers, governments, banks, courts, and various other regulatory bodies. With DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations), blockchain tech automates and/or eliminates the need for most of those things. You can set up a DAO that serves the same function as a traditional company, but you can do it with a DAO much quicker, cheaper, and easier. DAOs are also trustless (again thanks to blockchain tech) and they are more transparent than traditional companies because everything is written immutably on the blockchain for everyone to see.
-As people really start to embrace using blockchain tech, crypto will skyrocket in use and value. Crypto "coins" are 100% necessary to using blockchain tech. I.e. you can't separate the crypto from the blockchain. Yes, coins can be used as a currency because they hold value, but they serve lots of other purposes. Primarily, they are the means by which users of blockchain systems interact with those systems. Examples? You can use an organizations' crypto coins to invest in the organization, to vote for changes in the organization, to establish authority within the organization, etc.
-Let's take stocks as an example. Like setting up a trad company, the process of going public is a huge pain in the ass, filled with all kinds of regulatory hurdles. Prior to crypto, buying stock in a company was the primary way for the public to invest in a company. You can invest in DAOs and other organizations that utilize crypto coins simply by buying their coin. This provides them with capital and provides you with a stake in their organization. Why the hell is any company in the future going to bother with trad stocks and IPOs when they can simply design their own coin and sell it to investors.
-Binance (which considers itself a DAO- in function if not in name) is a great example of this. Binance has hardly any external shareholders- investment in Binance is done through its proprietary coin, BNB. And it's a great deal for people who invest in the right organizations. People who invested early in BNB have gotten huge returns for their investment. This article is worth reading: Can Crypto’s Richest Man Stand the Cold?
Anyway, there's a lot more to it, but I don't want to spend my whole Saturday trying to summarize my deep dive into crypto and Web3. I'd recommend these interviews as definitely worth a listen if you are interested in this stuff:

No. But now is a good time to sort out the potential from the hype. Whether you’re bullish, bearish, or just confused, we’re here to explain what the blockchain can do for you. (Part 1 of a series.)freakonomics.com
Edit: if you listen to the freakonomics podcast do yourself a favor and skip to minute 6
Well then, I guess that settles it.
Not sure where you live. In Texas you need 15 minutes 350 bucks and a computer. That's it to start a business.-For example, if you want to set up a traditional company, you need to go through a painstaking process involving lawyers, governments, banks, courts, and various other regulatory bodies.

Dude, I'll trade you for a 2015 Tmac 1am Walgreens condom receipt for a 2018 Mist 1am Walgreen's catfood receipt.What in the hell? LOL.
"Receipts. Everyone uses receipts. Remember that KitKat you bought at the grocery store? You got a receipt for that. Soon that receipt will be an NFT. Today all of our receipts get thrown away, but in a decade they will become collectibles..."
WHAT AN IDIOT.
