Even with the massive popularity gained by Crypto, there is no mainstream coverage of the crypto ecosystem. There are always two opinions on Crypto, people either think it is a get-rich-quick scheme or get bankrupt in the most volatile market ever created. But what people are not aware of is the fundamental and technical aspect of the projects behind the cryptocurrency or the objective and the problem a protocol will solve. This is due to the lack of knowledge and awareness of new and upcoming projects based on Blockchain technology.

Besides cryptocurrency, we also have NFTs, Non- fungible tokens the concept and mechanism of which majority of the people have no idea about. The moment they hear NFTs they imagine a funny picture which people are going crazy about and ready to spend millions and billions on. But why are they doing that? What is the relevance of NFTs and what is the point of creating an NFT? How can we create or make money through NFTs? Such questions are unanswered and too complex for a layman to understand without any media channel shedding some light on them.

Another unexplored arena is the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) space, the number, and scale of opportunities available on the platform are massive and yet the market is still untapped by the majority of traditional investors. It is an alternate financial system that incorporates most of the features of a traditional financial system but does not restrict anyone from anywhere from participating in the decentralized finance (DeFi) platform, therefore, creating a plethora of financial instruments that were previously not available for everyone by legacy systems either due to paperwork or services not provided in the location they reside in.

Recently the word ‘Metaverse’ is in the air. Since Mark Zuckerberg launched Meta a lot of publicity has been received by it. The metaverse is considered the next iteration of the Internet. It is virtual reality where everything done in real-world day-to-day life can also be done in a virtual world. Just imagine the endless possibilities provided by the Metaverse. Real-life can be moved to a virtual plane.

The lack of awareness and the inherent fear to accept something new that we’ve never heard or seen in our entire life becomes a barrier and causes hindrances in exploring and exploiting the opportunities brought in by the crypto world in its entirety. The solution to overcome this fear is to understand the technology behind them, their key concepts, their use cases, and the viability of the projects.
