☕ Daily gm. 1 billion web3 users.
A16Z showed us data from NFT and web3 world, and we are still early. See the takeaways & and many more!
Daily GM starts with an a16z annual crypto report this time because they showed us some valuable data from the NFT and web3 world. And they believe we are still somewhere around 1995 in a stage of development. Wow, exciting years ahead!
A16Z released a 2022 crypto report and they agree we are still early. NFTs will help to grow web3 and web3 will help to grow NFTs. Interesting takeaways from the report.
The crypto markets go in cycles. Price drives ideas and activity, which in turn drives innovation. Though it might look like constant ups and downs, we see consistent long-term growth over the years when we zoom out. We are in the 4th cycle (2011, 2013, 2017, 2021), and the best opportunities of the decade are yet to come.
Web3 is much better for creators than web2. The average creator revenues by source are incredible👇
NFTs: $174,000 / creator Spotify: $636 / creator YouTube: $405 / creator Facebook: $0.10 / creator
DeFi has grown from nearly zero to over $100 billion in less than two years, and it is now as big as the 31st largest US bank (by total assets under management). Impressive, yet still so small, and we will see a ton of growth in the coming years.😊
Ethereum is the clear web3 leader, with the highest number of monthly active developers building on it. The massive growth of layer 2 solutions is expected to help with scalability.
There are between 7 and 50 million active Ethereum users. Analogizing to the early commercial internet, that puts us somewhere circa 1995 in terms of development. Web3 could reach 1 billion users by 2031. Exciting years ahead.

goblintown.wtf dropped for free, got viral, and generated over $7 million in the sales volume. While we don’t know who created it, the goblins are everywhere. How come they got all the attention?
First, fun concept that goes through recent bad/meme moments we all remember (market crash, azuki x phunks, steve aoki fun, kevin pixelmon, LUNA/Terra collapse, etc). Second, great timing (negative sentiment after the market crash - we want fun again). And the viral aspect. The royalties are 7.5%, so the team has made ~$550,000. Never bet against the culture!
