Introduction to Web3 Sectors
We released a new article series introducing key web3 sectors, for beginners in the space to learn more about the various web3 niches that they might find their calling in.
In the first of the series, we dived into one of web3’s hottest sectors — Decentralised Finance (DeFi), exploring how it challenges conventional norms and whether it could replace the current financial system.

Next, we delved into one of the most exciting sectors of web3 — Game Finance (GameFi), exploring how DeFi and traditional games can come together to deliver an immersive gameplay like never before, creating financial inclusion and onboarding the masses onto web3 — all at once!
In the latest article of the series, we dissected a highly controversial web3 sector — NFTs (non-fungible tokens); how it is democratising the creator economy, and transforming industries across the board — from music to games, high fashion, and even sports!
