Chainlink Co-Founder Anticipates Rising ETFs for Coins

Sergey Nazarov, the co-founder of Chainlink, a blockchain oracle platform, discussed the future of the crypto space in an interview with at the Token2049 event in Dubai. Nazarov shared his thoughts on the potential development of crypto exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and what could drive mainstream adoption for Web3 and digital assets.

Nazarov believes that with the approval of Bitcoin (BTC) ETFs, the crypto space can expect more ETFs for other coins and tokens. He stated that besides BTC and Ether (ETH), other tokens have the potential to be approved for their own ETFs. Nazarov predicts that the ETF trend will continue to grow throughout the year.

Nazarov mentioned the possibility of tokenized real-world assets (RWAs) being generated by Web3 companies and banks in the near future. He believes that the Web3 world will converge with traditional finance through RWAs, with banks buying Web3 assets and Web3 protocols purchasing bank assets.

Nazarov acknowledged that the usability of crypto still has a long way to go before achieving wider mainstream adoption. He emphasized that the user experience is far from optimal and highlighted the need for improvement in this aspect.

To further accelerate adoption into the mainstream, Nazarov identified four main pillars that need to be addressed: usability, scalability, connectivity, and privacy. He stated that the crypto industry is making progress in these areas and will continue to push the limits of what is possible.

Nazarov envisions a future where various cryptocurrencies have their own ETFs, Web3 and traditional finance converge through tokenized real-world assets, and the usability of crypto improves to attract wider adoption. He expects these developments to happen within the next three to four years.

  1. Usability, scalability, connectivity, and privacy? Good luck addressing all four of those. I’m not holding my breath.

  2. If the crypto industry is really making progress, why do we still face so many roadblocks and obstacles? Not convinced at all.

  3. Convergence between Web3 and traditional finance? Sounds like wishful thinking to me. Don’t think it’ll ever be a reality. 🤥

  4. Tokenized real-world assets? More like a pipe dream. I’ll believe it when I see it. 🤥

  5. I highly doubt that tokenized real-world assets will become a common practice anytime soon. It’s just too complicated and risky.
