Three ‘Great’ Prospects for cryptocurrency in 2023, as Revealed By Vitalik Buterin
Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, has identified three “major prospects still to be fulfilled in crypto,” including the widespread use of cryptocurrency wallets, inflation-proof stablecoins, and website logins built on the Ethereum blockchain.
Buterin responded to Bankless co-owner David Hoffman’s worry that the “adoption wave” for decentralized applications is gone and that there is “less potential” for developers to come in and build new decentralized applications by discussing his vision for the cryptocurrency sector in 2023.
Instead, Buterin dismissed Hoffman’s “limbo phase,” arguing that bitcoin wallet infrastructure needs more work to make it user-friendly for the general public and able to enroll billions of users.
The Ethereum co-founder put it this way If you can develop a wallet that a billion people will use — that’s a massive potential.
Second, Buterin said that the sector would undergo a revolutionary change if a hyperinflation-resistant and globally accessible stablecoin that can endure any situation was developed.
“If you can design a stablecoin that can genuinely withstand everything up to, and including, a U.S. dollar hyperinflation […] that’s a big opportunity as well if you can create something that will seem like a lifeline for everyone living through that crisis,” the author writes.”
Buterin didn’t provide any technical advice on how to accomplish this.
Last but not least, Buterin asserted that any technological advancements that help Ethereum usurp the login authority currently held by Facebook, Google, Twitter, and other centralized monopolies would eventually allow Ethereum to increase its market domination on web-based applications.
That in itself is a massive potential, right? “If you can get Ethereum signed in to work and if you can dethrone Facebook, Google, and Twitter as the login rulers of the internet.”
However, Buterin acknowledged that as the business matured and competition increased, it was getting harder to fill holes in the market.

On December 5, Buterin said that the future of Ethereum and decentralized technologies also excites him, along with blockchain-based identities, decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs), and hybrid apps.
