Web3 space is growing, despite losing the initial hype. Already several areas of development have emerged, and more tools are available for each one. The most important aspects include account creation and user onboarding, tokenization, NFT minting, sales and distribution, financial aspects, smart contracts and security, as well as other minor user experience tools.
The end goal is to create usable, fun apps that repeat the success of Web2, but with an ownership component and trading potential if needed. The need for fast iteration and quality user experience led to a new wave of platforms offering specialized Web3 services.
Play2Moon went through some of the most active and prominent platforms on social media, with their main services and technologies. Some platforms are cross-compatible, while other projects focus on one aspect of Web3, such as NFT or DeFi.
Curated Web3 Tools
One of the perks of new Web3 tool collections is that some are ready to offer curated features and expert advice, and walk the team through the process of launching a blockchain app. The most notable expert-led onboarding can be found with Ignitions and Ava Labs.
The other type of platform that is establishing its influence in 2023 offers a wide range of services, and is compatible with multiple blockchains. Alchemy and ThirdWeb are the examples of newly launched, highly active resource hubs.
Infrastructure and Web3 Building
Some of the projects offer a mix of Web3 tools, as well as their own infrastructure. ImmutableX offers both tailored solutions for NFT and trading, as well as fast transaction opportunities. Flow offers an entirely different blockchain with a native wallet and account abstraction.
