Will web3 reach mass adoption? 🪦
The apps-infrastructure cycle, and how breakthroughs in blockchain tech are igniting the next generation of mass-consumer internet apps.
In 2020, NFTs took the spotlight — introducing true ownership to digital assets for the first time.
But since then, there’s been few mainstream applications of blockchain technology. The bear market has settled in, liquidity has dried up, and growth has died down — leaving many to beg the question: Is web3 dead?
Despite public perception, the past 18 month have been definitive for blockchain technology. And rather than being in a quiet period, crypto is going through yet another phase of the apps-infrastructure cycle.
The truth is that innovative use cases for nascent technology don’t materialize overnight: It took 70+ years of research for AI to have its breakthrough moment. For the blockchain, Ethereum just turned 8 this month.
And yet in 2023 alone, web3 has seen its biggest infrastructural advancements ever — across blockchain scalability, user experience, & developer tooling.
But what are these advancements? What do they mean for the web3 ecosystem? And how do they lead us to mass adoption?
Learn about all of the above, and what’s next, in our full breakdown — as we head towards the next phase of the apps-infrastructure cycle:
