Ava Labs President John Wu’s 2024 Crypto Predictions
Ava Labs, the development firm behind Avalanche (AVAX), recently unveiled its President John Wu’s crypto predictions for the year 2024. Wu anticipates significant advancements within the Avalanche ecosystem.
The Rise of Stars Arena: A Beacon of Hope in the SocialFi Landscape
In an exclusive interview with CNBC, John Wu highlights the potential of Stars Arena, a decentralized social finance application (SocialFi) that made its debut on the AVAX blockchain in late September. Wu emphasizes the resilience of such projects, stating, “We just talked about Stars Arena, and they’re going back online, and we will see one of these SocialFi DApps figure it out. There’s been a couple already, and they’ve experienced booms and some busts, but sooner or later, they’re fixing the business model, and it will work well. So that’s one of my predictions.”
SEC’s Likely Approval of a Spot Bitcoin (BTC) ETF
John Wu also forecasts that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will grant approval for a spot Bitcoin (BTC) exchange-traded fund (ETF), possibly as early as the fourth quarter of 2023. He adds, “When that happens, I anticipate a lot of inflow.”
Spot BTC ETF Applications and the SEC’s Decision
In late September, the SEC postponed its decisions on numerous spot BTC ETF applications, including BlackRock’s. The final deadline for the SEC’s review of one such application, the ARK 21 Shares Bitcoin ETF, is January 10th.
Avalanche’s Upcoming Game-Changing Developments
Regarding updates within the Avalanche ecosystem, John Wu reveals that Ava Labs has ambitious plans to introduce real-world assets. Some of these developments will be formally announced in November. Wu is enthusiastic about these changes, especially their potential impact on traditional financial institutions. He states, “These are, I think, game-changing developments with… TradFi banks and asset managers. These announcements will be really big, I’m super excited for these institutional, real-world assets being deployed on Avalanche.”
