Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies, DeFi, Metaverse, NFT, Stablecoins are being discussed every day, but what do they mean exactly? Are they the building blocks for the future of finance, or a market driven trend?

20 years ago, many were asking themselves similar questions about the Internet, and since then we have witnessed the ongoing transformation of the Web. Today, it is important for all those who would like to understand the future of Web3 and Digital Assets to become better informed and gain a greater understanding of blockchain and the concept of decentralisation, the Metaverse and tokenization and how these concepts will shape the future.
