- Got a favourite industry or a new product idea? Do background research, conduct interviews with people in the business and possible consumers of a new Web 3 compatible business model. Present the feasibility and possible value of the service and gauge the complexity of implementing and launching it. Present academically solid facts to back up your argument
- What are people talking about at Tech and Web 3 conferences today? Does what they say make sense? Will decentralization, blockchains and token-based economics make the world a better place?

What would you have to change to make the claim true and enable this? Is there a completely different solution to the problem
