Web3 Coins Watchlist Part I: BAND, POND, MASK, API3, FET

CryptoMode Web3 Coins Watchlist

Web3 currencies still provide tremendous potential for the future. Although some projects will perform much better than others during specific periods, there is still a growing need for infrastructure projects and service providers. The following coins may be worthwhile to watch, but always conduct thorough research before investing. 

Band Protocol (BAND)

The Band Protocol project has been around for some time now and provides cross-chain data oracle solutions. Its technology stack is vital to Web3 as turning real-world data into actionable information for on-chain applications becomes more powerful. Additionally, Band protocol connects APIs to smart contracts to help exchange information between on-chain and off-chain data sources. Decentralized oracles will play a crucial role in the years to come.

Marlin (POND)

The Marlin project has a relatively low market cap for a Web3 project. Its network infrastructure applies to both Web 3.0 and decentralized finance and grants developers access to a virtual router interface for deploying overlays and edge computations. Potential overlays can help scale blockchains, introduce arbitrage opportunities, enhance mesh networks, etc. It is a blockchain-agnostic infrastructure solution that can integrate with layer-1 and layer-2 networks.

Mask Network (MASK)

The promise of Mask Network revolves around letting users send encrypted messages over Twitter and Facebook. More specifically, it is a bridge between the internet and a decentralized network, introducing some interesting Web3 opportunities. Further developments include peer-to-peer payments and decentralized storage functionality. Privacy is always welcome where online interactions are concerned, yet it remains unclear whether there is a big market for this approach. 


The API3 project enables the building, managing, and monetizing of decentralized APIs at scale. Smart contracts are expected to provide reliable real-world data, yet they often struggle with connectivity issues. API3 removes the need for oracles – which increases costs and centralization – by letting API  providers operate their nodes. In addition, decentralized APIs can enhance data transparency and speed up deployment.

Fetch.ai (FET)

Fetch.ai has been around for a few years and aims to build a permissionless decentralized machine learning network through its AI lab. Moreover, it democratizes access to artificial intelligence through its network, where anyone can connect and access secure datasets through autonomous AI to execute tasks. It has many opportunities in the future Web3 world across many industries.
