6. Web 3.0 browser

A great example of Brave is that buying an app doesn’t necessarily have to respond to the value accumulation of token owners.

Browser and ecosystem brave they are grow fastbecause the company is more than it is now 10 million monthly active users.

So far, this has had little effect on the token price. Basic care token (BAT)Although Brave is an interesting project, the company has already done the hardest: create a quality product that people really want to use on a large scale.

With its membership fee, BAT is the leading candidate to experiment with new token economy models that can add special value to Brave users (awards, coverage etc.).

7. Games like NFTs

The demand for commercial cryptocurrencies disappeared as soon as they appeared CryptoKitties.

The free fall in user interest was not so surprising, as “card” games that took advantage of NFTs seemed like a niche market that offered little value compared to larger in-game virtual goods franchises.

Then God Unchained was created.

Moderate (at the time) NFT trading game demand exploded after that Foodthe gaming industry giant has decided to boycott a professional player for publicly supporting the protests in Hong Kong on its platform.

Gods Unchained Group he complained About Blizzard’s attitude and what happened:

I’m not sure I could call this moral support the NFT revival, though The rise of NFT markets and interest in Microsoft Offering prizes for collecting cryptocurrency to Azure customers is just two hopeful facts.

What makes me so optimistic is that gaming companies will be willing to sell their goods for free in the ecosystem.

The good news is that the NFT industry has a long way to go to identify more appropriate and high-productivity environments.

Most of these platforms are still in the early stages of development and may not be ready to accept such games in a year or two.

8. Betting

The appeal of betting applications is understandable block chain.

Online betting operations they are still banned gu USA and most of the time Asiatwo of the largest crypto-user bases and licensed platforms offer a risk-taking shelter in these countries.

Dapp.com’s latest market report shows that betting apps have twice as much market share as any other gaming industry in terms of active users, transactions, and volume.

It is also interesting to see which block chain is home to these applications.

Most online casinos have opted to build on low or zero fee and high performance platforms. EOS and tron (for now), because they are willing to take advantage of censorship resistance to increase performance and achieve higher profit margins (if apps want to subsidize users by destroying transaction fees for the sake of membership) or at least they believed in it.

A report Coinbase is one early warning gives win bet, dapp Based on EOS, suggest that not everything is pink now for EOS.

In early November, the rise of user actions in the blockchain caused the network to enter “stack mode”making any transaction very expensive.

Is this EOS implosion good news (dare I say it) for the Throne?

Maybe, but it’s likely to see two-tier solutions, for example Loom Networkbe the main beneficiaries of the EOS stack.

In the long run, we expect to see more online casinos built into their parachute (parallel lock). polkadot or Cosmos.

social networks

9. New social platforms

Decentralized social media projects are in their infancy, but the potential is there.

I don’t believe in the potential that users will seek explicit financing of their previous intangible social capital in the short term (remember the big “garbage to luxury” stories). reddit? Neither do I).

the real challenge “decentralized” social network. it is not incentive models, but user acquisition, that are so ingrained away from the big headlines that it could be said that decentralized innovations should come from them (or regulatory actions).

In the face of the ongoing challenges of freedom of expression in the media world, we look forward to seeing more protocols, not platforms.

The longer we go without the TON token telegramKlay token Cocoa or from Mobilecoin signal, the more skeptical I am about their potential, the more they resemble projects to make money in 2017-2018. But I believe it Jack Dorsey and no twitter.

As I said in the post, “Ten people to focus on in 2020“, Dorsey recently announced a Twitter backend decentralization plan with a small independent initiative called Blue skywhich will direct Twitter CTO. It also makes sense.

Even in the future, Twitter will become a customer of this open standard, some may say that the value of the platform would come from curating a specific customer. non-filtered data disorder.

if the ad of Lb of Facebook it was a momentous moment in the history of cryptocurrencies, perhaps BlueSky’s prediction is similar in magnitude to its Web 3.0 thesis.

A single social network dominated by one protocol would allow simultaneous implementations of each protocol, test new untapped business models, reduce switching costs, and show freedom of expression and privacy. But you should believe the messenger.

In that case, I don’t trust them Zuck. I trust Jack (if I had to choose one).

10. Everything else

Web 3.0 layers are still evolving, and we still have time to talk about some of the most interesting applications in Web 3.0: video transcoding (live) and geospatial map (FOAM).

The first was developed by Livepeer video transcoding product on its network (via Livepeer, Inc.) and also launched a public testnet for a new scalable protocol called Stream flowafter lifting $ 8 million in June.

He launched APAARRA beta version in order to verify the submission of geolocation contributions from users of its token-consolidated registry (TCR), in April, a total of about 140 participants attended each month and began testing. scalability solution to speed up location updates.

As for the “job token” feed, FOAM and Livepeer depend on membership, but the markets that can be addressed seem small and are still very early. Who will take them first?

They certainly pave the way for Web 3.0. But are we still five years ahead?
