2021, the year of the Web3 centralization?

Sky Marvis raised $150M at the end of 2021 at a $3B valuation for Axie Infinity and its Ronin¹ blockchain, appreciating the value of 4.88M transactions from 615k “traders”² on a currently 100% centralized blockchain³.

Solana is the fastest growing blockchain in 2021⁴ with a marketcap at +$54B. Yet it does not have the best APY with about 6%⁵. It is also the most centralized blockchain at this valuation level considering that 1.39% of nodes⁶ can control the network.

Ethereum represents 20% of the total value of crypto-currencies which is as much as all the others combined excluding BTC. It is a Swiss⁷ foundation with a hyper-centralized board in the hands of three people⁸ including the co-founder’s lawyer.

The main crypto-currencies in the world are legally hosted by organizations with hyper-centralized and often opaque governance:

  • Swiss foundations (XTZ, SOL, ETH, ADA, DOT),

Major DAOs like Uniswap or Maker have self-centralized⁹ and opaque intellectual properties. Sushiswap is totally dependent on its representatives on earth¹⁰

So what is centralization? In 2022, the Web3 economy will move from services offered by anonymous founders and websites with no legal disclaimer to companies that raise funds, often in capital, and compete in the capital market, where they have to return more and more return on investment to participants.

Decentralization is not a binary or universal notion. We should talk about the level of decentralization according to the objective sought. The real question is how can we build a better Web3 than the Web2 that gave birth to a series of monopolies represented by the GAFAMs that have become real dangers for democracy and the global economy?

At Civicpower we believe that there are several conditions for the success of our Web3 voting infrastructure project:

  • Owners : a long term POWER token community, wishing to finance our vision while obtaining an efficient return on investment over time,

The level of decentralization of our assets will change over time:

  • Voting blockchain : our vote certification blockchain will move from a centralized layer2 system¹¹ to a progressively decentralized layer1 blockchain,

All the teams of Civicpower, Votelab, ChainR OÜ and inBlocks join me in wishing you a beautiful year 2022 full of decentralization!

²“More than 615,000 traders have bought or sold Axie Infinity NFTs in 4.88 million transactions, according to DappRadar. This means that an average transaction for an Axie Infinity NFT is worth about $420. The company and secondary sales of the NFT characters have now reached $33 million a day. All of this is pretty amazing for a company that had $100,000 in sales in January.” — https://venturebeat.com/2021/10/06/sky-mavis-raises-152m-at-nearly-3b-valuation-for-axie-infinity-play-to-earn-nft-game/

⁶ the superminority is 19 nodes on 1/1/2022. This is the opposite of the “super majority”. “A super majority is 2/3rds of the validators weighted by their bonds. A super majority vote indicates that the network has reached consensus, and at least 1/3rd of the network would have had to vote maliciously for this branch to be invalid. This would put the economic cost of an attack at 1/3rd of the market cap of the coin.https://solana.com/solana-whitepaper.pdf — Delegation program under control https://solana.foundation/delegation-program & https://solana.foundation/delegation-criteria
