This includes non-fungible tokens (NFTs), blockchain games, and decentralized finance (DeFi). In addition, executives shared their hopes for the future. He said:

“I expect that at some point being able to do much larger computations with a very small gas footprint will give rise to entirely new and unexpected applications that will become much more important.”

He shared his belief that their team feels different, even though many are calling the current state of affairs in the cryptocurrency and blockchain space a cryptocurrency winter. “It feels like spring heading into a crisp summer,” he said.
