🔮 Our Analysis
The world of web3 contains immense promise, yet current developer onboarding systems make it extremely difficult to build consumer-facing projects. To build in web3 today, developers need to be familiar with concepts like smart contracts and be proficient in confusing coding languages like Solidity (for Ethereum) and Rust (for Solana). thirdweb is building the infrastructure to erase this friction, making it the perfect candidate to convert the next wave of developers to web3. thirdweb has built a plethora of software development kits that are already integrated with smart contracts, letting builders launch NFT projects without writing code and often in less than a dozen steps. Its customizable templates allow builders to design easy-to-use products while maintaining unique backend features native to the blockchain, like token ownership and smart contracts. They’ve worked with global brands like 100 Thieves (Lifestyle), Fnatic (Gaming), and BooHoo (Fashion). thirdweb’s extensive team of developer advocates combined with its accessible UX make it perfectly positioned to cultivate the next wave of builders in web3.
