“For a space as dynamic as blockchain, it is difficult to identify the reasons for the evolution of the industry during the year. However, I believe that the adoption of smart contracts has enhanced the growth of the industry and its relevance in the traditional setup. From optimizing supply chains to building a business structure around them, smart contracts are helping everywhere.
DAOs appeared as a new wave of democratization of companies and associations. By transferring ownership to everyone involved and reducing centralized authority, DAOs and community governance are here to stay. In 2021, we could see several protocols transform into DAOs and start their journey towards true decentralization.
In addition, the influx of human resources is definitely an integral part of the evolution of the blockchain space. And this not only reflects the number of talent joining the industry, but also the population that accepts and embraces technology in their day-to-day operations. With more people involved in technology, the industry is maturing.
The blockchain industry has taken a leap forward in 2021, and I see no reason for the juggernaut to slow down in 2022.
