What is a killer app?

In the context of digital assets market, killer apps should not only establish novel class of assets with stellar performance, but also serve as a huge “utility anchor”, which enables many other digital assets in terms of utilities, in turn the killer apps will forge a stronger bondage with hundreds of millions of end users. The bondage and anchor effects will systematically reduce the entire market volatility. Now, with Web 3 under the spot light, people turn to GameFi, SocialFi etc. New areas for the emerge of next killer app with mass adoption.

Just a short while ago, crypto market had culminated with Otherdeed, moonbirds and StepN. This gives folks the illusion of killer apps. When hypes faded away and things went out of control, these star projects seemed to have left the center stage.

What is up recently with these three once high flying projects? What lessons and insights we can gather from these projects’ ups and downs?
