Solana Mobile will bring secure crypto to the masses
The biggest movement in 2023 will be the rollout of Solana Mobile. The DVT-1 are already shipping to developers in late 2022 so they can ready their apps to deploy on mobile. Several thousand phones are been on pre-order as mentioned by Anatoly in a recent podcast. Instead of reaching for your laptop when you get back home, you can now securely sign transactions on your mobile anywhere and at anytime. This is huge for crypto adoption and one of the many themes this post explores as Solana gets ready for 2023 the year for mass adoption.
NFT’s for the masses with NFT Compression
Cutting costs by 99% for the minting and storage of NFT’s will help propel use cases for NFT’s for mass adoption. Think about how every purchase of the next Avatar blockbuster sequel could also receive an NFT and an address for creators to reach customers via ongoing promotions. The same thing could happens for any sports game ticket, music concert event, or business conference proof of attendance. There are endless possibilities when you can mint millions of NFT’s within minutes on demand. Now that it is possible, we will have to see what innovation happens in this space.
