The coming of the new year is a great time to look back, assess the impact of past events and try to make some predictions. In this article, we will talk about the most important trends in cryptoworld, which, according to experts, will determine the development of the digital finance and blockchain industry in 2023.
1. Improvement of legislation in the field of regulation of cryptocurrencies
Yes, we have been talking about the laws in the field of cryptocurrencies for more than one year. The exact outcome of the discussions can only be guessed, but 2023 may be the year when the clashes over regulation will finally reach their apogee.
2. The growth of popularity and the increase in the number of Web 3.0 projects
No matter how you feel about cryptocurrencies and blockchain, it is difficult to ignore the fact that large-scale economic shifts create conditions for shifting crypto projects from speculation towards utility. And one of the main categories of utility is social experience. This is exactly what experts expect in the coming year, anticipating the growth of people’s interaction with Web 3.0 as a source of unique social interaction.
3. More losses and more pain
The problems of digital finance are still far from solving. In 2022, we witnessed the collapse of large companies. Experts suggest that this is just the beginning. And no matter how painful it is to realize the fact that the “new FTX” can collapse at any moment, you need to be ready for this at any moment. It may seem to some that this is a negative forecast, but experts are inclined to believe that such events clear the way for those who want to work for the benefit of the community.
4. Global expansion of economic spheres introducing cryptocurrencies
For several years, no forecast has been complete without this point. We will consider it a certain tribute to the tradition that has developed since the advent of Bitcoin. But since both it and other popular cryptocurrencies in 2022 did not show the best results. So, we can count on the fact that the digital finance market will begin the next round of development with a more extensive list of digital assets.
5. Interest in NFT
The steady growth of NFT projects and platforms trading a new type of digital tokens in 2022 is the best indicator that this sphere of application of blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies will continue its development in 2023. During the year, investments in NFT came from major brands such as Starbucks or Disney. Business gradually understands and accepts the new digital reality and is unlikely to stop in the future.
6. Consolidation of major players in cryptocurrency trading
The example of FTX and the consequences of the collapse of such a large platform again raised a rather important question that has been repeatedly discussed in the crypto community: do major market players need to unite to create common systems for trading and exchanging digital assets? According to experts, 2023 will be the year of the beginning of a new path, where Coinbase, Binance, Uniswap and other platforms are likely to begin the transformation of the market.
7. Technologies based on ethics
For many years, the cryptocurrency market has remained a place where laws were invented to a greater extent in order to try to circumvent them. In 2022, trends towards the creation and development of projects using an ethical approach to the formation of ecosystems began to actively form. One of the most striking examples of this approach was IslamicCoin, which managed to embody the long-standing idea of creating a “green blockchain”. And 2023 will not only continue, but also significantly strengthen these trends.
IslamicCoin is a digital currency conforming to the norms of Islam and Shariah, functioning in its own blockchain Haqq, which means “Truth”. Already at the stage of closed sales, IslamicCoin aroused huge investor interest and was able to raise more than $ 200 million in just a few weeks. Unlike technically outdated Bitcoin and Ethereum, which have a lot of problems, IslamicCoin uses the full power of the most progressive blockchain technologies and is based on the most fair and reliable ideology and rules of conduct.
Successful investors choose ideology, technology and prospects based on something more than minor fluctuations in price charts. For almost 20 years of the existence of a new type of digital money, cryptocurrencies have not brought a drop of real value into this world, have not made people free, independent and happy. And this means that it’s time for a new type of finance based on responsible choices and new values!
