Foresight Ventures: Analyze the Web3 business model and assign asset attributes and debt attributes to Token

Web3s methods of issuing assets include narrative, asset leverage, and equity tokenization. The essence of narrative comes from consensus or the coercive power or credibility of a centralized subject.

In DeFi, the issuance of LSD and LP tokens is essentially asset leverage, allowing a large number of assets to appear out of thin air in the entire system. A large part of the DeFi TVL or AUM we see may come from leveraged assets. When the bull market arrives, the AUM or TVL of the entire Web3 system will expand rapidly, and the expansion speed will increase at a collective level. In addition to the issuance of a large number of assets, another major driving force is the leverage of assets. The biggest use of LSD for the entire DeFi is lossless leverage, that is, it does not require any interest rate costs and there will be no liquidity loss.

The debt of the system can be eliminated by exchanging time for space and the mother currency producing sub-coins. The most typical example of the time-for-space model is Curve Finance: it seized market share through high subsidies in the early days, and now has a monopoly on the liquidity level. After the monopoly is formed, it also has monopoly pricing power for bribe fees. From the last bull market to the present, the secondary price of CRV has continued to fall, and the debt has been eliminated through the decline of assets. Regarding veCRV, it continues to collect bribe fees, lengthening the timeline and smoothly landing the debt. An example from the other side: The introduction of Blast further accelerated the process of Blur debt elimination. Blast serves as Blurs cannon fodder, passing on Blurs system debt due to excessive subsidies.

Summary of the NFT track in 2023: Will change move forward or will it fall into silence?

The future of NFTs will depend on the ability of creators and platforms to evolve to provide real value and utility that goes far beyond mere speculation.

Blue-chip NFTs face challenges on many fronts: uncharted territory, evolutionary challenges, complexity, and waning interest.

Solana has become a compelling contender in the NFT space, praised for its high transaction speeds and low costs.

The next wave of developments will have the opportunity to geographically decentralize the industry. Another foreseeable trend is that more and more NFTs will be designed for commercial use, not just personal use.

SevenX Ventures: Decoding INTENTS and how to completely change the Web3 user experience and order flow model

The author divides intent into the following three groups of keywords: result rather than path, conditional authorization rather than code authorization, and competitive solver rather than trusted dapp.

The article uses Cow Swap, 1inch fusion, UniswapX, account abstraction, Essential, Flashbots SUAVE, and Anoma as examples, and further discusses it in five parts: Intent expression and authorization, candidate solvers, solving process, Solver selection, verification, and settlement.

There are striking similarities between the concepts of intents and rollups: off-chain execution and final settlement and verification on-chain. Please pay attention to the potential centralization problems that Intent may bring; in addition, how Intent players can start to make the solver effectively implement Intent for users is also a real problem.
