New Horizons For Web3.0 Technologies
Various subjects have been covered, delving into emerging technologies within the web3.0 sphere. Some of the discussed topics include:
CBDC: Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) represent a digital currency form issued by a country's central bank, resembling cryptocurrencies. The distinction lies in CBDCs having a fixed value determined by the central bank, directly tied to the nation's fiat currency. Numerous countries are actively developing and, in certain cases, implementing CBDCs. Given the widespread exploration of digital currency transitions, it becomes crucial to comprehend their implications for society.
Fireblocks Off Exchange Settlment: Fireblocks is launching Off Exchange Settlment– a new solution that enables trading firms and asset managers to trade on centralized exchanges from an on-chain MPC shared wallet, eliminating exchange counterparty risks.
This initiative is crucial due to risks such as cyber hacks, bankruptcy, commingled accounts, and fund misappropriation, exemplified by incidents like the one on FTX. The unique structure of crypto exchanges as both custodians and trading venues has restrained capital deployment and deterred traditional firms from entering the market. Fireblocks' solution mitigates these risks, offering a streamlined approach to exposure management and eliminating the challenge of fund commingling, benefiting both trading firms and exchanges.
EigenLayer Technology: EigenLayer is a protocol built on Ethereum that introduces restaking, a new primitive in cryptoeconomic security. This primitive enables the rehypothecation of $ETH on the consensus layer. Users that stake $ETH can opt-in to EigenLayer smart contracts to restake their $ETH and extend crypto economic security to additional applications on the network. Part of EigenLayer’s potential, therefore, lies in its ability to aggregate and extend crypto economic security through restaking and to validate new applications being built on top of Ethereum.
