Lubin went ahead to say that Berlin has the needed infrastructure, talent and not forgetting the excellent programmers in the market.
Thus, if the country was looking to maintain its status within the blockchain technology hub, then the government would need to invest more.

Lubin’s View About the Crypto Market

The reason being the technology advancement is able to make more money in the growing market and still drive the current technology forward. But his primary concern is the development of the next stage on the internet in which he has referred to it as web 3.0.
According to him the old type of web has been incorporated with too many mistakes like people do not have actual control of their data, these companies are able to capitalize on the user data. Additionally, no system has been set up that is able to settle cross-border payments. Accordingly, it as a market we would need to slowly move away from the silos, from the different companies that mainly collect data and make some extra money and people who need to have all this back in their hands.
More From an Interview Conducted

He also added that the Ethereum technology was able to enable billions of software engineers not to worry too much on the protocol layer; thus, this enabled the developers to go ahead and build with the tools they have been used to creating with. It is when they are developing the various mobile and web applications, so they are able to identify their own problems on the different platforms and identify the appropriate solutions that could be used.
