Build Market 🏗️
On Monday, I welcomed the first 20 incubates and accelerates from @joincube3.lens, Europe's first Web3 incubator and accelerator 🎓
Objective: to support, finance and boost future Web3 projects from France to a European scale.
Projects cover a wide range of areas: Tokenization, DeFi, NFTs, Metavers, RWAs...
Together with partners, advisors and mentors, we'll be supporting these projects to help the industry continue to grow and maintain its leading position in France and Europe.
A film crew is on hand to show you what goes on behind the scenes of entrepreneurship, from board meetings to fund-raising and bank meetings. First episode in a few weeks!

Are we still in a bear market? 🤔
The expression "Build market" seems to be trying to replace it lately.
True, it's simpler to reassure ourselves about the state of the market for the capitalization of our favorite assets, but there's more to this formula than meets the eye. Indeed, this "bear market" is one of, if not the most productive in our ecosystem.
💰 As far as ownership is concerned, according to the latest Adan and Ipsos survey, nearly 10% of French people will own digital assets in 2023, a year marked by a bear market. A record high.
📈 Fundraising has decreased over the past two years (1.2 billion euros injected in France, including 70 million by BpiFrance over the past 4 years thanks to the crazy work of Ivan de Lastours in particular), but some fine companies continue to attract the attention of investors, such as Ledger with its 100 million in the spring, or Sorare, with 2 million euros.
🏢 On the business side, companies continue to be created in France, as do ideas. According to Bpi France, there are more than 750, 150 of which have benefited from help from the financing giant. The latest? Ternoa today with 1 million euros. As @joincube3.lens shows, over 150 applications have been submitted to our site for acceleration and incubation, in fields as diverse as gaming, decentralized finance, the metaverse, tokenization, and even Web2 companies looking to open up to Web3.
👨💼 As far as employment is concerned, there will be 7,000 direct and indirect jobs by 2023.
📰 Last but not least, @cryptoast.lens bears witness to this every day: demand for ETFs on #bitcoin and #Ethereum, regulation of the sector, institutionalization of the sector (recently with PayPal's stablecoin on Ethereum)... This world is no longer asleep.
So yes, the curves don't reflect the effervescence of the sector, but after many months of falling assets, the name "build market" doesn't sound so bad as a complement 🚀

Lens driving the next wave of #web3 adoption? 🤯
I had the opportunity to talk about the strength of @lensprotocol.lens in a podcast and compare it to Twitter, even with Musk's new announcements 👀
@stani.lens @bradorbradley.lens @orbapp.lens @lenster.lens @lenstubelogs.lens are so many people and protocols building tomorrow's social network operations 🧙♂️
Lens driving the next wave of web3
In the middle of the selection period for the @joincube3.lens incubator (we received +150 applications for the first session), I'm very surprised by the number of companies already set up that want to expand into web3, or send a development section to us. This is a significant proportion in the finance and video-game sectors, with projects that are consistent with their original business. The face of the industry no longer seems to be built solely on start-ups native to the field!
In the middle of the selection period
The @aaveaave.lens governance forum is becoming increasingly fascinating. For several weeks now, we've been moving away from technical issues towards more philosophical and economic ones. And today's AIP vote embodies this perfectly; using part of aave's treasury to make a strategic OTC acquisition of CRV and position the GHO in the race for the platform that still does much of the rain and shine in our ecosystem. On-chain economic warfare bears witness to the gradual maturity of our industry, for all to see. And this proposal seems to me far from absurd.

*A mirror on our challenges.*
**FTX's failure is a shock to our industry.** But it is not the failure of the industry ⚗️
It is the opacity of a centralized enterprise, which rekindles the wounds of the era that gave birth to Bitcoin, that is still involved 🧪 The failure of centralization and the impossibility of public auditability. A life-size OSINT for all, allowed by the nature of the creation of Nakamoto was not possible there. It is still the same enemy today, 14 years later. Regulation must make no mistake and heal the right wounds 🧑⚖️

Lens is thus displayed on the French national television 📺, and questions the web 3 and the modes of financing and development of tomorrow. The beginning of SΞptember promises to be crazy 🧞

As we know, blockchain technologies are perfect for exchanging data and therefore value without a trusted third party 💰⛓️
But they can also be an ideal framework to save our memories forever.
This is precisely the bet of POAP, which proposes to collect free NFTs if you have participated to events 🖼️
Today, this protocol is unanimous in the WEB 3 universe, with the majority of the protocols of the ecosystem offering to collect POAPs at their events. But POAP is already starting to seduce more traditional companies, like the French car manufacturer Renault 🚗
The advantage? Enter the world of WEB 3 without a wallet, and take your first steps in this ecosystem without paying 1 ether ⧫
Remember a good time spent with friends. And share your memories forever with your loved ones. And maybe tomorrow, to be a key of the web 3, or even, with the power of Lens, to become a social network or a dating network? 🔑

I spoke with Jean-Marc Stenger, CEO of the innovation branch of one of the largest French banks, Société Générale, last week 🏦
Société Générale, via its subsidiary Forge, is betting on our sector in different ways 🛣️
First of all, with this great news of the last year alongside other banks of the sector :
The tokenization of bonds. In April 2021, the European Investment Bank (EIB) issued its first bonds using Ethereum (100 M d'€). If these innovations are still limited, especially with the little interest of professionals around these tokenization, this could change very soon... 🤔
Then, because our French bank is also participating in the Ethereum network, and will soon become a full ETH 2.0 validator. "This is part of the criteria for the reliability of our procedures and our business continuity plan," confides the CEO 🖥️
Also alongside decentralized finance, with MakerDAO. "These solutions have emerged outside the pollution of traditional finance and its regulatory side. I think that institutions will eventually be the first users of this DeFi." 💫
As an appetizer, the bank is working with MakerDAO on solutions for refinancing securities natively issued on blockchain.
So, what are they doing with our DAIs?
To put it simply:
Tokenize a set of bonds (which refinance home loans issued by the bank under security token). The investor who bought these bonds brought them as collateral on MakerDAO to fund it against DAIs 🤑
For Jean-Marc Stenger, programmable blockchain will disrupt his industry (along with IOT) in the coming years, especially through cost reduction and improved UX for customers 👨🔬
We will observe this synergy between DeFi and CeFi in the coming months! 🔎

How does this visionary and his teams want to change the way we use the internet?
Is the #AAVE application heading towards a neobank, with its own bank card? And how are institutions starting to adapt to this world?

This collaboration comes at a time when institutions around the world are embracing cryptocurrencies. While Bitcoin was still ignored and reviled a few years ago, the world's largest banks, corporations and various institutions have now adopted them: JP Morgan, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, MicroStrategy, BlackRock, etc.
In France too, several major players have turned to cryptocurrencies. This is notably the case for the EDF group, Société Générale, AXA, Caisse d'Épargne and many others 🏦
We will strive to bring the most reliable news to everyone.
