10 Predictions for Web3 and the Cryptoeconomy for 2022

By Surojit Chatterjee, Chief Product Officer

2021 proved to be a breakout year for crypto with BTC price gaining almost 70% yoy, Defi hitting $150B in value locked, and NFTs emerging as a new category. Here’s my view through the crystal ball into 2022 and what it holds for our industry:

1. Eth scalability will improve, but newer L1 chains will see substantial growth — As we welcome the next hundred million users to crypto and Web3, scalability challenges for Eth are likely to grow. I am optimistic about improvements in Eth scalability with the emergence of Eth2 and many L2 rollups. Traction of Solana, Avalanche and other L1 chains shows that we’ll live in a multi-chain world in the future. We’re also going to see newer L1 chains emerge that focus on specific use cases such as gaming or social media.

2. There will be significant usability improvements in L1-L2 bridges — As more L1 networks gain traction and L2s become bigger, our industry will desperately seek improvements in speed and usability of cross-L1 and L1-L2 bridges. We’re likely to see interesting developments in usability of bridges in the coming year.

3. Zero knowledge proof technology will get increased traction — 2021 saw protocols like ZkSync and Starknet beginning to get traction. As L1 chains get clogged with increased usage, ZK-rollup technology will attract both investor and user attention. We’ll see new privacy-centric use cases emerge, including privacy-safe applications, and gaming models that have privacy built into the core. This may also bring in more regulator attention to crypto as KYC/AML could be a real challenge in privacy centric networks.

4. Regulated Defi and emergence of on-chain KYC attestation — Many Defi protocols will embrace regulation and will create separate KYC user pools. Decentralized identity and on-chain KYC attestation services will play key roles in connecting users’ real identity with Defi wallet endpoints. We’ll see more acceptance of ENS type addresses, and new systems from cross chain name resolution will emerge.

5. Institutions will play a much bigger role in Defi participation — Institutions are increasingly interested in participating in Defi. For starters, institutions are attracted to higher than average interest-based returns compared to traditional financial products. Also, cost reduction in providing financial services using Defi opens up interesting opportunities for institutions. However, they are still hesitant to participate in Defi. Institutions want to confirm that they are only transacting with known counterparties that have completed a KYC process. Growth of regulated Defi and on-chain KYC attestation will help institutions gain confidence in Defi.

6. Defi insurance will emerge — As Defi proliferates, it also becomes the target of security hacks. According to London-based firm Elliptic, total value lost by Defi exploits in 2021 totaled over $10B. To protect users from hacks, viable insurance protocols guaranteeing users’ funds against security breaches will emerge in 2022.

7. NFT Based Communities will give material competition to Web 2.0 social networks — NFTs will continue to expand in how they are perceived. We’ll see creator tokens or fan tokens take more of a first class seat. NFTs will become the next evolution of users’ digital identity and passport to the metaverse. Users will come together in small and diverse communities based on types of NFTs they own. User created metaverses will be the future of social networks and will start threatening the advertising driven centralized versions of social networks of today.

8. Brands will start actively participating in the metaverse and NFTs — Many brands are realizing that NFTs are great vehicles for brand marketing and establishing brand loyalty. Coca-Cola, Campbell’s, Dolce & Gabbana and Charmin released NFT collectibles in 2021. Adidas recently launched a new metaverse project with Bored Ape Yacht Club. We’re likely to see more interesting brand marketing initiatives using NFTs. NFTs and the metaverse will become the new Instagram for brands. And just like on Instagram, many brands may start as NFT native. We’ll also see many more celebrities jumping in the bandwagon and using NFTs to enhance their personal brand.

9. Web2 companies will wake up and will try to get into Web3 — We’re already seeing this with Facebook trying to recast itself as a Web3 company. We’re likely to see other big Web2 companies dipping their toes into Web3 and metaverse in 2022. However, many of them are likely to create centralized and closed network versions of the metaverse.

10. Time for DAO 2.0 — We’ll see DAOs become more mature and mainstream. More people will join DAOs, prompting a change in definition of employment — never receiving a formal offer letter, accepting tokens instead of or along with fixed salaries, and working in multiple DAO projects at the same time. DAOs will also confront new challenges in terms of figuring out how to do M&A, run payroll and benefits, and coordinate activities in larger and larger organizations. We’ll see a plethora of tools emerge to help DAOs execute with efficiency. Many DAOs will also figure out how to interact with traditional Web2 companies. We’re likely to see regulators taking more interest in DAOs and make an attempt to educate themselves on how DAOs work.

Thanks to our customers and the ecosystem for an incredible 2021. Looking forward to another year of building the foundations for Web3. Wagmi.

  1. kasynokatowicecasinokasyna Quick Hit Platinum gra mimo klasycznej tematyki dostępna jest na wszystkich urządzeniach mobilnych bez względu na system operacyjny czy typ urządzenia. Jest to możliwe dzięki zastosowaniu najnowszych technologii HTML 5 oraz faktu, że do uruchomienia nie jest wymagane posiadanie Flash Playera. Dzięki temu jedynym ograniczeniem dzielącym gracza od gry jest dostęp do stałego łącza internetowego. Dzisiaj GG Bet to potężny bukmacher online, który dostarcza kompleksową ofertę na zakłady sportowe, e-sport oraz szybko rozwijające się kasyno internetowe. Wybierając nasz serwis, fan hazardu internetowego otrzymuje wszystko, czego mu potrzeba i to w jednym miejscu. Nasza aktualna misja to zapewnienie bezpiecznych, najwyższej jakości usług we wszystkich sektorach naszej działalności. https://plan2cost.com/community/profile/geniasmithson98/ Fani Red Dead Online oczywiście od razu zwrócili uwagę, że ustawa dotyczy rozgrywek, w których stawką są prawdziwe pieniądze. Nie zmienia to jednak faktu, że na razie możemy raczej zapomnieć o pokerze w sieciowej produkcji Rockstara. Legalny poker online w Polsce można uprawiać (a zatem nie obstawiać, a rzeczywiście w niego grać) w obrębie zaledwie jednego kasyna online – prowadzonego przez rząd Total Casino. Posiada ono monopol na świadczenie tego typu usług właśnie w sieci. Jednym ze sposobów, aby zawsze mieć wystarczającą ilość dodatkowych środków do gry w pokera, jest skorzystanie z bonusu doładowania (zwanego też bonusem reload). Oczywiście większość stron pokerowych nie oferuje 100% doładowania, ale nie jest to wymagane. Dla większości graczy strony z pokerem online, które oferują 35% -50% premii za doładowanie, mają sens, ponieważ pozwalają uzyskać więcej środków na grę w pokoju pokerowym online. Gracze nie wybierają zbyt często bonusów doładowujących, to prawda, ale czasami zobaczysz, jak ktoś doładowuje swoje konto i jest z tego powodu niezwykle zadowolony.

  4. I’m writing on this topic these days, safetoto, but I have stopped writing because there is no reference material. Then I accidentally found your article. I can refer to a variety of materials, so I think the work I was preparing will work! Thank you for your efforts.

  5. Online gambling and sports betting have never been more easy and accessible nowadays with the advancement of technology. Filipino gamblers often deposit money to play online slots and slot games, at casinos, or even use them for sports betting. There are some payment methods that can be used in online casinos such as credit cards, debit cards, and e-wallets (Skrill and Neteller are a few examples of e-wallets in international countries). In the Philippines, the most commonly used and the most popular is GCash. This game is called, Phoenix. It is a betting game where you can earn by putting your bet on different games. Loading… There are many online casinos that accept Gcash where you can play the most popular and classic games including Dragon vs Tiger, Baccarat, Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, Video Poker and Slots. https://felixethv875320.blogpixi.com/14279340/no-deposit-free-spins-win-real-money-in-peso-philippin An average jackpot win of 6,000 coins is sizeable because the coin size allowed for this slot is unusually higher than that of other fruit slot machines. You can wager only 1 coin per line, but it can be valued anywhere between 1 cent and $10. So, a total of $500 can be put at stake, while a jackpot of up to $60,000 is up for the taking here! What are you waiting for?! Go, get spinning – there’s no time to lose! Along with every other large developer, Amatic already has many fruit-based slot machines available on the market. So, it does make sense to wonder at the logic used when they chose to develop another slot of the very same nature. The difference, however, between the free Fortuna’s Fruits slot and other slots is in the genre is that this game carries a little extra colour and sizzle.

  6. ag真人百家家乐平台是1992年经国务院批准建立的贵州省首家国家级高新区,是贵州省大数据产业发展集聚区和“1+8”开放创新平台之一。国务院批复面积5.33平方公里,实际管理面积31.54平方公里,已形成金阳园、沙文园、修文园、乌当园(2008年整体移交乌当区管理)“一区四园”发展格局。 在以往许多游戏类型中,荷官拥有完全的控制权。在这个时候,值得研究一下百家乐游戏的变化,它允许玩家触摸纸牌。事实上,澳门百家乐的确允许玩家在纸牌上进行某些仪式,他们相信这会给他们带来好运。话虽如此,它可能与现实生活中的赌场息息相关,因为在线娱乐场提供的是虚拟的游戏体验。但您仍然可以在网上找到澳门版本的百家乐,它们通常都有额外的功能。可以对“玩家对子”和“庄家对子”下注,并且赔付也高。 https://findyouritch.com/community/profile/ksnbelle767157/ -玩家投票系统、魅力值排行榜 三人憋七也被称为是接龙游戏,游戏过程中每个人都是独立作战的,不需要跟别人打配合,这样的对抗性会更强,一直到玩家手里的牌全部出完为止,结束… 除了AGT和ATSV之外,我们也想评估一下对于“无偏向性”的蜘蛛纸牌程序来讲,“真正的”获胜概率。一个明显的困难在于胜率是和玩家有关的,所以很难验证“一个玩家能赢50%的游戏”这种说法。另一个情况是我在不同的蜘蛛纸牌游戏程序中得到了从45%到60%的胜率,而且没有证据显示我在使用这些程序的过程中胜率有所提高(也就是说,我的胜率并不随着时间增加而呈现出正相关)。 排七接龙游戏特点 蜘蛛纸牌中含有两套标准扑克牌
