initial public publication time: January 26, 2023
Shigeru Head of CGV Research
What are the areas where real Web3 applications that scale to a billion users might be born? The article argues that the underlying value of Web3 lies in its unlicensed and global nature, which provides a free market of unprecedented scale and boundaries. In contrast, the open source code and verifiability of data offer a lower cost of trust for this great free market, and thus prosperity is born. “The success of Web3 applications is based on the digital elements of “freedom” and “trust,” and the verifiability of business logic, all three of which are indispensable. And based on this, it proposes the “Unicorn Growth Index” for Web3 applications.

How centralized is the current block built, and why do we need to decentralize it?

In-depth insight on DeFi
The Real-World Asset (RWA) revolution in the DeFi fields is quietly emerging. The emergence of RWA lending protocols has enabled lending outside of the revolving crypto world and opened up the potential for DeFi lending to grow from tens of billions of dollars to a $1.6T TradFi private credit market. This paper provides a detailed analysis of the current state and potential of Real World Assets (RWAs). It shows that authentic asset protocols in DeFi have the potential to revolutionize the lending market and provide new opportunities for investors to achieve higher returns and diversification. It remains to be seen if the new narrative of RWAs will usher in a new summer for DeFi.

Notably, the report notes that miners could consider lightning networks as a way to earn additional revenue from their bitcoin holdings. This is because lightning networks offer the opportunity to generate bitcoin-denominated earnings with minimal counterparty risk while also helping to support the broader bitcoin ecosystem.

The LSD (Liquid Staking Derivatives) section has performed very well under the shadow of the bear market in the venture capital market amidst the macrocycle of global monetary tightening. As a DeFi derivatives track that grew up with the ETH 2.0 upgrade, LSD has not formally entered the mainstream DeFi vision before, but with Lido’s TVL surpassing MakerDAO to leap to the top of the DeFi list and the asset size of RocketPool, Stakewise and other products expanding, LSD will grow into a $100 billion business volume race track. This article systematically introduces the LSD track panorama from the current pledge status of the ETH 2.0 market, the working principle of LSD protocol, the development of LSD track, the ecological opportunities of LSD track: DVT and Restaking technology, etc.

In 2022, the GHO stablecoin was first introduced at the AAVE Governance Forum, sparking huge interest across the DeFi industry. There is no doubt that the launch of such a decentralized, collateral-backed, and USD-pegged AAVE DAO-native stablecoin idea by AAVE, the top lending marketplace in the Defi ecosystem, makes a lot of sense and has led to the protocol-native stablecoin being seen by many as an important emerging narrative for 2023. This article analyzes the mechanics of AAVE’s upcoming protocol-native stablecoin, GHO, and its impact on the AAVE protocol and the DeFi ecosystem. Can the GHO stablecoin help AAVE surpass MakerDAO and DAI? the answer may be this year.
