In addition, DAOs, GameFi and verse also became buzzwords in 2021. What's driving them are innovations in organizational forms, improvements in operating models, and further exploration of the boundaries of virtual reality.

Nowadays, Bitcoin is being increasingly accepted and adopted by listed companies and central banks as a digital asset comparable to the gold. Traditional financial institutions are also actively stepping into this market, and compliance has become an important trend in the virtual asset industry. In the past year, DeFi has maintained rapid development in both scale and type, and DeFi2.0 innovations have evolved to provide better liquidity solutions. Market value of stablecoins increased rapidly and received attention from regulators around the world.
