AI, Blockchain & NFTs: The Future Investment Opportunities of Web3

The biggest technological advancement in humanity is yet to be seen with the mass adoption of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning algorithms. In this article, we will discuss how the future of AI looks and how the crypto market (and NFTs) will be impacted by it. And most importantly, how to prepare for what's coming by giving you a list of promising projects that might be attractive investments

AI, Blockchain and NFTs


Blockchain technology and artificial intelligence (AI) are two of the most innovative and rapidly developing fields in today's digital world. While they may seem unrelated at first glance, there are several ways these two technologies can be combined to create robust new systems and applications, which will open the doors to massive investment opportunities for Web3 Investors. In this article, we'll dive deeply into how AI will revolutionize the upcoming years in the digital sector. Then, we'll discuss how Blockchain, NFTs, and AI will affect society. And lastly, we'll give you a list of potential projects to invest in. Let's dive in!


The Evolution of the Internet: From Web1 to the AI


So what will the upcoming ten years in tech look like?

To answer this question, first, we must look back at history and observe how the internet has evolved. Let's go back to the early 90s when the first version of the internet was introduced to a global audience. Web1 was a read-only internet, similar to a newspaper. We used websites to read and obtain information. It was an informative internet. It seemed quite simple compared to today's websites. Back then, the internet was led by big players like Yahoo, AOL, Netscape, and MSN. The Web had a relatively small number of users, and only a few people saw the potential of what it would become in the next decades.

Then in the 2000s, Web2 began its run toward mass adoption by introducing the 'magic ingredient' that Web1 was missing: Interactivity. Web2 became an interactive-social internet where users could 'feed' online platforms with content. We saw the rise of social platforms like Facebook, where people could interact with other humans in a global network. We could share content and connect with friends regardless of distance. Likewise, we experienced the freedom to publish our opinions through Twitter and share our lifestyles through Instagram. YouTube exposed creators and brands to large audiences. Web2 was an internet of intermediaries, and these companies served as 'middlemen' that connected people. Web2 brought global interactivity among its users and changed our society forever. However, two significant issues eventually became a big concern: Privacy & Power. Users' private data represented great value to these large companies (for advertisement and other reasons). As a result, these platforms became massively successful and wealthy. At the same time, the users were just 'contributors' to feed the content on these platforms and had no decision-making power on the direction of these online platforms.

Years later, around 2014, the term Web3 was born. It promoted a decentralized online ecosystem based on blockchain and gained great popularity in 2021. Blockchain brought privacy (and transparency) in a decentralized environment, fixing the two main issues of Web2. Blockchain is the base on which Web3 is built, and one very crucial piece of the success of Web 3 is tokenization.

If you are unfamiliar with tokenization, here's a basic example. Tokenization means taking something big and breaking it into smaller pieces. Just like how you can take a big chocolate bar and break it into smaller pieces to share with your friends. In the digital world, tokenization breaks down digital assets, like a picture, a song, (or even a company) into smaller pieces called “tokens.” These tokens can be bought and sold like a piece of a chocolate bar. This makes it easier and more accessible for people to own and trade digital assets.

Thanks to tokenization, people can own a part of the internet. You can buy a small portion (or Token) of a successful company and receive profits if the company succeeds. Ownership is distributed among its users rather than just a few people at the top of organizations. In other words, Web3 is the internet owned by its users. Owners have voting power and can influence the decision-making of these projects through DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations), where every member/owner has a vote and can affect the project's direction.

Back to the point… we previously mentioned that the magic ingredient for Web2 was interactivity, which led to its massive success. Now, Web3 also has a magical ingredient that will lead to one of the most significant societal changes in the digital world. That magic ingredient is Efficiency (through AI). Web3 platforms will experience exponential success in the upcoming years by introducing artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms that will exponentially boost human efficiency while utilizing fewer resources.

How will AI impact Web3?

Fewer Resources + More Output = Great Innovation

To adopt new technology, it needs to use fewer resources to produce an equal or greater total output. By using AI tools, we can get more work done while using fewer resources (like time, money, and effort). Companies building AI tools to minimize human workload while maximizing work output will become highly relevant in the current decade.

Let's use the example of ChatGPT. A computer program owned by OpenAI that can generate human-like text, answer questions, summarize information, and perform other language-based tasks. It can be used in chatbots, virtual assistants, automated writing, and many other applications. This is the first AI tool to reach global adoption. To put it into perspective, It took Netflix 3 years to reach a million users. Twitter took two years. Facebook 10 months. And ChatGPT reached a million users in just five days! Pretty impressive, huh?!

While AI is still in its infant stages, we have already seen a glimpse into its immense potential. In the last 12 months, we have seen the rise in popularity of AI tools that boosts human productivity and efficiency, such as Midjourney (Image generation), (text to speech), Jasper (written content), Quillbot (paraphrasing), SuperHuman (AI email manager), and the list constantly keeps growing.

Potential AI & Blockchain Investment Opportunities for 2023

Remember how we said that Web3 is the internet owned by the people? Meaning that you can own a piece of these projects built on blockchain. As AI increases in popularity, more and more machine learning tools are adopting blockchain as a base to build on top of. Below, we have included a list of AI projects that combine Blockchain and NFTs.

*Disclaimer: This is NOT financial advice, and if you decide to invest in any of these projects, please do so responsibly and DYOR.

Generative Art has been the most common AI use case in NFTs. Using tools like DreamStudio, MidJourney, and DALLE-2, we have seen dozens of creators launching NFT collections, allowing retail investors to buy, sell, and trade through NFT Marketplaces. Although AI has been a great fit for generative art, below, we will point out a few projects creatively using AI, which is worth keeping an eye on in 2023.
