The company's second-quarter growth was the lowest it had been in five years, so it will let go of 20% of its employees.
Even though the Web3 business is just getting started, builders and developers are working hard to reach a single goal: the widespread adoption of Web3.
Web3 is the next step in the development of the Internet. It is being made with the goal of taking power away from large tech companies and government regulators and giving it back to regular people and innovators.
Web3 has grown a lot in the last ten years, even though there have been several recessions around the world. Intermediaries are becoming less important because new models have been made.
Faster and faster, new start-ups, decentralized applications, and community-driven projects are being created.
Now that we're halfway through the year, we should look at what's going on and what to expect in the next six months.
DAOs will change the way people make art.
With the power of the internet and the ease of communicating with people all over the world, it has been a great time for creative inventors to grow.
Web3 is being made so that creative people can use it. When security, peer-to-peer payments, and proof of ownership are important to producers, blockchain technology is a big plus.
Blockchain technology is used to make DAOs, which are a kind of organizational structure. DAOs are groups of people who work together to help the project or creator succeed in the long run.
DAOs give people "a voice" by giving people who own the project's tokens the right to vote.
In 2022, DAOs may fund a creative project or person, and members of the community may support or comment on the project or person.
This lets the creative person do their best work, knowing that their work is being supported by a DAO. It's a great chance for people in the Web3 community who are creative.
In the last two years, NFTs have gone through a lot of ups and downs. In the past year, NFTs have seen a crazy amount of growth and widespread excitement.
OpenSea grew at a rate that had never been seen before in 2021, and NFTs have started to show up in pop culture and on social media. So far this year, sales have gone down, and some people are wondering if the NFT bubble is about to pop.
Others in the sector who want to make money quickly are more worried about the downward trend than those who know a lot about technology and can see the real value of NFTs.
I think it will take longer than six months for NFTs to start to settle down. As rumors about the technology start to die down, real use cases will start to take the place of fads.
NFTs are starting to be used in a variety of ways, and soon they will work to get people to buy them. This could be done in many ways, such as with patents, loyalty awards, in-game assets, and so on.
Instead of being a quick way to make money, NFTs will become more of an experience. DeFi protocols will work together when something important happens.
I felt compelled to add this, especially in light of the recent LUNA collapse and UST depeg crisis. Hacks, destabilizations, and other terrible things will continue to happen to Web3 in 2022 and, if we're unlucky, 2023 as well.
But as leaders in the field of cryptography, we can learn from these cases.
Tragedies and events from the past seem like they happened a long time ago, but they can still teach us something. In the United Kingdom, after the Hungerford Massacre in 1987, BT (British Telecom) couldn't handle the number of calls from witnesses, so rules and laws had to be changed.
In the 1980s, fires at King's Cross Station and Bradford City Stadium changed the way people thought about buildings made of wood. The September 11 terrorist attacks changed forever how people travel by plane.
On a human level, what happened was horrible and horrifying. The same things happen when Web3 crypto attacks or important events happen. They let us work together to make a better future for everyone.
As problems come up, developers and innovators will try to find a way to fix them and prevent them from happening again. In 2022, "competitors" may work together to create a better version of Web3 and a better future.

Amulet and other insurance providers in the DeFi industry recently talked about how they could work together in dangerous situations like depegs.
As these things keep happening, I hope that more and more DeFi protocols will work together to make Web3 a great place for everyone.
These are just three examples of possible big ideas for 2022. It's a tough time for our industry (and the world as a whole), so it's important that we talk about our predictions, expectations, and beliefs for the coming months and years.
These patterns may be here to stay, and they may help us figure out what will happen to Web3.
