BROUGHT TO YOU BY DANCING SEAHORSE
The world of "web3" (What does that even mean, anyway?)can be a confusing one, with the landscape changing daily as the market ebbs and flows, and companies dip their toes in the water. So from the newbies to seasoned veterans, we have something for you in this free report brought to you byDancing Seahorse.
If you're new here, web3 in the simplest terms is the latest evolution of the internet. If web1 was the computer, web2social media and apps, web3 is NFTs and Cryptocurrency, AI and the metaverse. Although we saw a lot of hype with digital collectibles when the first wave of web3 hit in March 2021, the technology behind these generative collections and famous PFP's (Picture for proof or profile picture) and the utility that they offer are what is here to stay.
