WEB2 Put in a WEB3 Skin, Is Not Decentralization, It’s a Mirage
After the FTX — Cryptocurrency Derivatives Exchange catastrophe last week, and the bizarre tweets SBF has been putting out, it’s clear that we need decentralization in Web3 more than ever. Creating centralization in Web3 doesn’t address the problems Web3 was destined to solve. It just repackages them in a new skin.
Web3 is still the best path forward for humanity
The most unfortunate thing about the @SBF_FTX and @FTX_Official debacle is their impact on crypto adoption. However, even with the immense magnitude of damage caused by this ever-evolving debacle, web3 remains the best candidate for a decentralized citizen-powered future.
Stop pretending to be decentralized when you are not
In fact, the entire SBF situation proves this. Think about it.
What was @FTX_Official? A Centralized Exchange.
Inherently an implementation that required users, investors, and anyone involved to put their trust in the hands of a centralized entity.
Is any web2 reliance bad for web3 apps?
Now, I am not saying any web2 app utilizing some aspects of web3 is bad. In fact, among the large number of decentralized implementations launched by Ferrum Network, we have also launched a few centralized solutions that were applicable and requested by the stakeholders.
CEXs are no different, clearly, there is a use case for them, they can provide customer care, support, and, at-least we thought, a guarantee that funds are #SAFU But is there a better way forward? I believe there is. ✔️
Wen decentralized order book ser?
To this day, we haven’t asked ourselves why we don’t have significant adoption of a decentralized order book. Project Serum has made some headway in this area, but is it enough?
Why are CEXs so popular?
I’ve deduced this down to the following reasons:
People use #CEXs
- As a #FIAT <> #Crypto on-ramp and or off-ramp.
- To enjoy #gasless #trades and or lower #fees
- To take advantage of a relatively more predictable #order book
Let’s #DeFi these 3 use cases 👇
FIAT ← → Crypto on-ramp and or off-ramp?
Gasless trades and or lower #fees?
So how do we enable gasless trades in DeFi?
That’s the billion-dollar question that could change the shape of an entire industry and help empower billions of people with access to decentralized finance.
Ferrum Network’s Contribution to Decentralization
What’s the most exciting part? You can build all of this on any chain utilizing Ferrum Network’s Quantum Portal and secured by pioneering solutions like Value Constrained Pos Rollups (VCPR) invented by Ferrum founder Naiem Yeganeh.
Our team at Ferrum Network is constantly building to make web3 more accessible to the masses. We monitor, assess, & learn from the developments in the industry, then build solutions that solve those exact problems.
