Web3 has long been a catch-all term for a vision of a better Internet that uses blockchain technology, smart contracts and strives for decentralization. So it is not surprising that the most frequently discussed technology of the future among investors and businesspeople has been the third version of the global network. Business executives, venture capitalists and governments around the world expect Web3 to impact their normal business operations as well as provide them with new opportunities. So it's no surprise that crypto and Web3 startups have already attracted more than $16 billion in investments in 43 deals this year.
The goal of Web3 is to move to a decentralized Internet and give users full ownership of their digital assets. The new version of the Internet will increase transparency and accessibility, and help people interact directly, without intermediaries.
Future Web3 Startups Ideas
The development of Web3 is undoubtedly helped by major players: a growing number of well-known companies and brands, from Starbucks to Anthony Hopkins, advertise the main products of the new Internet (cryptocurrency, decentralized applications, etc.).
The emergence of 5G and 6G networks, as well as the launch of new Web3 apps and Web3 wallets, can be called an additional incentive for the development of Web3. Analysts predict that this will be a major driver of market revenue growth from 2022 to 2030. Machine learning and artificial intelligence will power Web3, allowing computers to analyze large amounts of data and assist in the distribution of content based on specific user needs.
The field of Web3 can be considered one of the most promising areas of modern technology development at the moment. According to a study by Market Research Future in 2023 the market size of Web3 will grow to 6.187 million dollars. And according to Emergen Research, a Canadian market research and strategy consulting firm, the global Web3 market is expected to reach $81.5 billion in 2030 and grow at a compound annual growth rate of 43.7 percent.
Despite the economic instability of the market this year, Web3 projects continue to attract the attention of investors. Of course, first of all, due to the fact that this field includes such advanced technologies as cryptocurrencies, blockchain, NFT and the metaverse. And secondly, because Web3 startups are a very promising long-term investment that can bring excellent profits in the future.
