When the development of the blockchain industry enters the deep water area, its underlying driving force is also undergoing a profound change. In the past, when we mentioned blockchain, our first thought was, how to use innovative business models to attract the attention of the capital market, and then use the power of capital to develop; now, when we talk about blockchain, our first thought is how to use the The implementation and application of blockchain to realize self-hematopoiesis to achieve longer-term development. Behind this change, what is reflected is the gradual maturity and improvement of the blockchain industry. Similarly, behind this change, we are told that the blockchain is no longer the same blockchain as it used to be.
In fact, after so much tempering, the blockchain has long surpassed the initial capital-led development model and started a development path full of self-distinct characteristics. More and more blockchain players are starting to focus on implementation and application, and more and more blockchain players are beginning to focus on building a blockchain-based ecosystem. Blockchain players began to abandon the illusion of making quick money and devote themselves to a longer-term development model.
The barbaric development model represented by impetuousness and fanaticism is gradually drifting away, and the refined development model represented by objectivity and rationality is coming to us. This is a sign of the maturity of the blockchain, and it is also an important manifestation of its beginning from an isolated and closed existence to an open and inclusive existence. The emergence of new concepts represented by the Metaverse and Web3.0 is the direct embodiment of such a phenomenon.
We all know that the early understanding of blockchain is usually closely linked with digital currency. Anyone who talks about blockchain will inevitably talk about digital currency, which has become the norm. However, the facts tell us that blindly binding digital currency and blockchain deeply cannot bring long-term development. Only by truly treating blockchain and digital currency differently can we open up new perspectives.
Therefore, what we see is the advent of a new wave of development led by the implementation and application of blockchain. Under this wave, what we see is the application of various types of blockchains, the models of various types of blockchains, and the players of various types of blockchains. However, we also have to see that the application of blockchain at this stage is still fragmented and fragmented. Because of this, despite the baptism of the blockchain, it has never been able to truly form a scale advantage, let alone a very rapid development.
Obviously, such a tepid development model is not the true face of the blockchain, nor is it the essential attribute of the blockchain. In the true sense of the blockchain, what should be achieved is a model of rapid iteration and large-scale development. Only by really superimposing various blockchain applications and realizing the deep compounding of these blockchain applications can the development of the blockchain industry be brought into a new stage of development. It is in such a situation that we see the emergence of a series of concepts represented by the Metaverse and Web3.0.
Unlike the outside world who simply regards them as new concepts, I prefer to regard them as inevitable products of blockchain development to a certain stage. On the surface, the Metaverse and Web 3.0 are brand new species, brand new existences, and if we look at them in essence, we will clearly feel that they are inextricably linked with the blockchain. It can be said that it is the development of blockchain that has entered a new stage, which led to the emergence of new concepts represented by the Metaverse and Web3.0, rather than the agitation of the capital market, which led to the emergence of the Metaverse, Web3.0. 0 is generated.
Therefore, I am not willing to regard the Metaverse and Web3.0 as the product of the development of the Internet to a certain stage, and even more unwilling to regard the Metaverse and Web3.0 as new concepts promoted by capital, but more willing to regard them as Success is the product of the development of blockchain technology to a certain stage.Through the Metaverse and Web3.0, we can clearly feel that the development of blockchain has undergone profound and thorough changes.
First, the leading role of the blockchain is gradually emerging. In the past, when we talked about blockchain, we also linked it with many other new technologies, including big data, cloud computing, AI, and the Internet of Things. Web3.0 is regarded as a composite product of these new technologies. It is undeniable that the new species represented by the Metaverse and Web3.0 are indeed closely related to these new technologies. It can even be said that these new technologies have created the Metaverse and Web3.0. The simple listing and addition of these new technologies, without the deep integration of these new technologies, then the Metaverse and Web 3.0 cannot appear anyway.
So, how can we achieve the perfect integration of these new technologies? Is it possible to do it just by means of the Internet? Obviously not. We need a more low-level, deeper, and more basic technology to achieve it. Looking at the current series of new technologies, we can clearly feel that only the blockchain has such great magic. It can be said that it is the leading role of the blockchain that allows these independent technologies to be deeply integrated and has the effect of 1+1>2.
Therefore, through the emergence of the Metaverse and Web3.0, the author feels more that the leading role of the blockchain is becoming more and more obvious, and the basicity of the blockchain is becoming more and more obvious. , the agglomeration effect of blockchain becomes more and more obvious. With the occurrence of these “obvious” situations, what we see is that the blockchain has gradually become dominant, and new business models have begun to be derived. Metaverse, Web3.0, is in such a situation. of. If you are not clear enough, you can link the Metaverse and Web3.0 with “Internet +” species such as e-commerce and online education. The “Internet +” model represented by e-commerce and online education is dominated by the Internet. , and the new species represented by the Metaverse and Web3.0 are dominated by blockchain.
Second, blockchain is moving towards invisibility. Let us turn the pointer of time back to the era when the blockchain was just emerging. In that era, the blockchain was undoubtedly dominant. It is under such a conceptually explicit development model that we see that many blockchain players just use blockchain as blockchain. This is the fundamental reason why we see so many blockchain projects dominated by coin issuance and ICO.
Facts have proved that such a development model will not work. To develop the blockchain, it is necessary to jump out of the blockchain and place the blockchain under a larger industry perspective in order to gain new development possibilities.Therefore, what we see is the advent of a new era dominated by “blockchain+”. More and more industries have begun to appear in the form of blockchain, and more and more pain points and problems have begun to be solved and realized with the help of blockchain solutions. Nevertheless, we can also clearly feel that the blockchain is no longer as dominant as it used to be, but begins to gradually disappear and return to its essence.
What is the essence of blockchain? After all, the essence of blockchain is a technology. It can be said that the return of blockchain to its essence starts a new development process of blockchain. Starting from this, we will see the emergence of a new development context related to blockchain, such a new development context. , which is represented by the return to invisibility.
Today, we are seeing the emergence of more and more new species. However, if we look deeper, we will find that behind these new species, all of them reveal the technology of blockchain and the idea of blockchain. However, these new species are no longer related to the blockchain, but have their own independent names. Metaverse and Web3.0 are undoubtedly the direct manifestation of such a phenomenon.
Again, blockchain is moving towards openness. The author always believes that if the blockchain is just an independent kingdom and does not realize the connection with the outside world, then the development of the blockchain will always be incomplete and immature. A blockchain in the true sense should be an open, inclusive and diverse ecosystem. Only in this way, the function and role of the blockchain can be maximized.
Unlike the blockchain we have seen in the past, which is a closed and isolated product, the current blockchain is beginning to open up step by step. Between different blockchain applications, between different blockchain systems, and between different blockchain players, they began to realize connectivity in one way or another, and the “spark” of blockchain applications began to gradually form. A prairie fire. For the blockchain, if there is no openness, this is impossible to achieve anyway.
Similarly, we can also see the emergence of such a clue from the Metaverse and Web3.0. Whether it is the connection between the virtual and reality of the Metaverse, or the connection between the physical world and the real world of Web3.0, we can clearly feel the realization of such a state achieved by the blockchain in a self-opening state. It can be said that it is the opening of the blockchain that allows species that originally seemed to be in the virtual world to have the possibility of bridging the real world; Possibility of further integration.
More and more signs are beginning to show that the development of the blockchain industry has entered a new stage. At this stage, the blockchain starts to become composed and cool, it starts to become basic and invisible. For the blockchain, this is an inevitable development process, which shows that it began to change from a reckless teenager when he was young to a rational and stable youth, which shows that it began to abandon all impetuousness and began to re-understand Self, self development, this is a kind of awakening, but also a new starting point.
When the Metaverse and Web3.0 sound the new horn of blockchain, there may be more new species and more possibilities waiting for us to discover in the future!
