This presentation draws on a wealth of work in the web3 landscape as well as deeply researched examples of specific brand activations.

In addition to framing four alternative future pathways, the Web3 2030 scenarios present a strategic perspective that will help your organization position to be a disruptor, rather than being disrupted by the transformation that will occur as the world moves from web2 to web3.
