Considering better interest rates and user experience, new Web3 users who enter through games and NFTs may choose DeFi instead of banks, thereby increasing the number of DeFi users.

What is the next step for Web3.0?
First of all, where is Web3.0 today? Let’s start with some anecdotes.
a16z has a great game team led by @Tocelot. They invest in the founders of top game studios such as Riot, Epic, and Blizzard. Almost 100% of the project founders they recently met are exploring NFTs in some way, or are already building NFTs into their game products.
I regularly receive such emails from the founder of Web2. For example, this is a text sent by a top Web2.0 project founder a few days ago: “Hey, Chris, I hope everything is fine. I am going deeper Study encryption and now understand why it is so exciting.”
I expect to see similar new talents entering a wave in Web3.
I posted a half-joking tweet last week and received more than 250 Web2 To Web3 job applications.
Our portfolio companies report a similar rise in resumes for people who wish to migrate from Web2 to Web3.
This can be reflected in some figures. Coinbase has 68 million verified users.
They recently announced a new NFT product, and there are already 2.4 million users on the waiting list.
Despite being blocked by all Web2 app stores, including Google and Apple’s mobile stores, Axie Infinity reported 1.8 million daily active users in August, with total sales of $2.6 billion since its launch.
MetaMask is a popular Ethereum wallet with more than 10 million monthly active users.
OpenSea has sold more than 9 billion U.S. dollars in GMV for NFT this year.
In contrast, YouTube has paid a total of $30 billion to all creators on its platform in the past three years.
So what is the next step for Web3.0?
Many NFT-based games are expected to be launched, which are developed by founders with a background in top game studios. Some of them will be launched next month, while others will take longer.
Expect more creators to accept NFTs in their own communities, as they find that they can monetize better by selling digital goods directly to fans compared to banner ads and other Web2 monetization methods.
Considering better interest rates and user experience, new Web3 users who earn tokens through games and NFTs may choose to save these tokens in the DeFi protocol instead of banks, thereby increasing the number of DeFi users.
With the continuous improvement and growth of non-Ethereum L1 and Ethereum L2, the Web3.0 infrastructure will continue to improve. The Ethereum merger is expected to occur in the first quarter of 2022. This will improve network performance and eliminate opposition to the use of Ethereum due to environmental issues.
Looking forward to more experiments on DAO, social tokens, decentralized social networks, Web3.0 media and other emerging categories. Some of them may break through like the NFT and Web3 games earlier this year.
