Nader Dabit is a great example of the suction of the Web3 space. He was a successful developer at AWS with offerings for executive positions at Coinbase and Bridgewater but as he got deeper into Web3 he found a space that promises to solve many problems that lay in the core of Web2. He is now responsible for developer relations at Edge&Node, the organization responsible for The Graph. The Graph tries to solve a major problem in the blockchain space and works on a Google-similar indexing platform for blockchains. Nader directly inspired us with his vision and we are more than happy to present him to you in Hamburg. Nader also introduces developers to Web3 and develops tutorials on how to become a Web3 developer. We asked him some questions about the blockchain space and the future and got great insights.
With all the technology that we have so far, how long do you think will it take until the decentralized future becomes present?
I think it’s already happening, but it will be something that just becomes part of how things work and most people outside of the space will not think of it that way, many of their apps and the technology they use will just continue to shift in that direction over time. In addition to how NFTs have affected various parts of today’s world, like art and gaming, a few of the next big things that I think will happen that will be NFTs and tokenization being applied to physical assets and markets like real estate, and a decentralized social network becoming adopted en masse and being an onboarding ramp into this world.
What must happen for blockchain to improve our future?
I think both the UX and DX needs to improve a lot before we will see the type of adoption that will ultimately lead to a more community-ownership focused and creator-compensated world. I think that environmentally friendly consensus mechanisms are important, so I’m focused on building on chains that are there already or, like Ethereum, moving in that direction. From there, I think the rest will take care of itself.
What will the world in 10 years look like?
I think that decentralized tech and the creator economy will ultimately lead to more economic equality due to the fact that there will be more community ownership in how companies are formed in the future. The barrier to entry to financial markets will also be lowered through tokenization and fractionalization of markets that used to lock out all but the top earners in the world. I think the top social media companies in the world will all be decentralized and not what we are using today.
How do you gain confidence for the future?
I’m a very optimistic person. I tend to try to follow and interact with people who are also both optimistic but also makers and doers. Focusing on and being around these types of people makes me confident that the world will continue to improve. I think that decentralized technology will make a very positive impact on the world and is one of the main reasons I’m here, other than it being very exciting and fun.
What motivates you to be a speaker at BLOCKCHANCE Europe 2021?
I really loved the focus and mention of things like Green Technology as well as Sustainability that were mentioned as part of the event. I have a lot of ideas to share, so I enjoy speaking at high-quality events like Blockchance. I also really enjoy travelling and speaking at events, and particularly enjoy visiting Germany, so it was a no brainer!
