Web3 comes with the promise of a better internet: an internet designed and built for users. An internet that favors open protocols over walled gardens. An internet without middlemen
That promise has captured the minds of the investors and the general public alike. Last year, VCs invested $30B into Web3, and hundreds of millions of users owned some form of cryptocurrency. Even in the current bear market, $9.3B has been invested in the first half of 2022: Web3’s growth continues.
This concept of an open-source internet—in which users control their own data, access permissionless applications, and engage with each other in a global peer-to-peer network—is enabled by two technological breakthroughs: blockchains and smart contracts.
By the end of 2021, these two technologies had caught the eye of nearly 20,000 monthly active developers. The promise of Web3 has attracted some of the brightest minds to build a whole host of new technologies, but building smart contracts takes hard work! There’s a lot to learn that developers need to get right. If you want to join the 20,000 developers in Web3, we are here to help you kickstart your own development. In this guide, we’ll teach you the basics of developing your own smart contracts. Download our free guide below:
