Projects To Keep An Eye On
The fourth Season of the Binance Labs Incubation Program will focus on infrastructure, DeFi, gaming & metaverse, SocialFi & creator economy, and Crypto Fintech. It is a multi-pronged approach bringing the spotlight to the crucial industry verticals. Mainstream interest in decentralized finance, gaming, the metaverse, and SocialFi has risen. Accessing these verticals is only possible with solid infrastructure and projects capable of bringing more people into the fold.
One of the gaming & metaverse participants is ChapterX, an immersive 3D platform letting users build fully customizable worlds and avatars.

NuLink wants to build a decentralized network to enable security and privacy for developers seeing to preserve user privacy at all times. There is much sensitive and personal data floating around in the virtual world and privacy-preserving solutions will be of tremendous value to users.
