Our vision for Web3 in 2023

Decentralized economy: security, self custody, account abstraction, real-world DeFi

Decentralized identity & on-chain ZK privacy solutions

Scaling infrastructure, rollups, high TPS monolithic chains

Al and data economy 2.0 – going bevond content generation use cases

Spread of crypto as a non-speculative asset for everyday use-cases powered by improvements in UX & UI

Gaming infrastructure powering digital assets and NFT use-cases beyond collectibles

If we think of the Metaverse as a far off destination we will almost definitely sleep walk into not addressing some fundamental design choices.
