Understanding the community-run technology that provides the cornerstone of future economies
There are two major issues with the internet of today
Where governments and organisations use technological means to repress and manipulate populations and control power dynamics through centralised digital platforms
The price of internet access is personal data, which is owned and monetised by a few key giant tech companies, leaving the individual with very limited rights or control to their own data.
Web3 rethinks the internet to remove
embedded power structures
Most users were able to read content on Web1, but any further use was extremely limited.
The developments creating Web2 lead to more creators, meaning the average user could both read and write on the internet.
With aligned incentives, everyone on the internet has the chance to read, write, and own a part of the internet.
Allowing equal roles and power to
everyone on the internet
Previously, very few people had a stake in the internet and a few giants owned everything. Web3 aligns incentives so everyone can access the value.
Ethereum: one of the most influential areas of Web3
Ethereum is a blockchain technology that is built on Web3.
Digital money, global payments, and applications exist on this blockchain, which consists of nodes joined by a consensus mechanism.
The community behind Ethereum has already built a thriving digital economy and new creation platforms. And it's open to anyone else to build on - the only requirement is internet access.
Accessible & decentralised financial system
Anyone with internet access can open a bank account, ensuring non-discriminatory access to sending, receiving, borrowing, earning interest and streaming funds across the globe.
Large-scale asset trading possibilities
Ethereum is more than just digital money. Everything you own can be represented as a non-fungible token (NFT), allowing it to be traded and sold with possibilities that are growing all the time.
Fully protected personal data
Internet services on Web2 come at the cost of our personal data. Ethereum services are open by default - they work without any personal information and you are in control.
Development has unique potential on Ethereum
There is a strong base of developers willing to pay for block space, where they can store information and run code - far outpacing developers on other blockchains and resulting in impressive growth and development.
Attracting an impressive number of developers
Investing in Ethereum is a picks and shovel strategy
This means investing in the underlying technology that enables a product or service.
For Ethereum, web3 products and applications are built on top of the protocol layer.
Ethereum is the basis for many innovations
The future of the internet is built on blockchain. Web3 offers a secure, trustless, and decentralized digital experience, with the potential to create new economic opportunities that empower individuals and communities.
Since its inception, several seminal blockchain-based innovations have been achieved with many more yet to be invented.
P2P financial system based on blockchain, eliminating intermediaries for transparent and accessible financial services
Designed to maintain a stable value, often pegged to a fiat currency, enabling reliable transactions and reducing volatility.
Entities governed by code, allowing for decentralized decision-making and transparent ownership among members.
Unique digital assets stored on the blockchain, verifying ownership and authenticity of digital art, collectibles, and more.
The fusion of crypto and gaming, creating play-to-earn ecosystems, enabling ownership and monetization of assets.
The 3D-enabled digital space that uses virtual reality and blockchain to create lifelike personal and business experiences online.
is integrating with traditional
Through running code, known as smart contracts, the Ethereum blockchain automatically executes pre-defined contracts to trigger events, with settlements recorded on the blockchain.
Ethereum offers three-fold value
Value from Ethereum occurs in three distinct areas: store of value assets, consumable commodities, and interest-bearing assets, resulting in significant value potential.
1. Store of value
ETH functions as a store of value due to being used in DeFi as collateral, and also as value transfer on the Ethereum blockchain.
2. Consumable commodity
Ether is used to pay for transactions, and burned when this happens, meaning it can only be used once.
There is a decreasing supply, and more demand can lead to price increases.
With EIP-1559, Ether has changed into a consumable commodity where, like gasoline, more demand can result in price Increases.
Investors may look to minimize
their holdings to only what is
necessary to pay for a service,
i.e., Ether would be treated as
= Unchanged supply
Ether is now more like combustible gas than money,
as it is burned when used
to pay for transactions and can
only be used once.
= Decreasing supply
Over time, this consumption mechanism could make ETH deflationary and hence, result in further price increases
Every time a transaction is made, Ether is burned, reducing the supply.
Over time, a higher burn rate than inflation will result in deflation.
3. Interest-bearing asset
Staking Ether means it is locked for a given time, and this is rewarded.
Staking means locking up assets for a given time, where they cannot be used, sold or consumed.
In return for this, a reward is given from the blockchain - for example, tips from consumers or block rewards of newly minted ether.
The reward and any ETH which is not staked are instantly tradable.
Any Ether spent on gas
fees is burned by the
protocol, which reduces supply and increases demand, which can increase prices.
We make yield generation easily accessible through Ether staking for institutional investors
The demand for Ether as three-point money
is expected to result in long-term price increases.
On top of price increases, we will utilise staking, which is expected to yield 4,0% p.a.
