Highlights from the Huobi Research Institute report

The Annual Global Report 2021-2022 Huobi Research Institute’s Blockchain Industry Overview and Trends Report, in collaboration with the Blockchain Association Singapore and supported by Huobi Technology and Huobi Singapore, analyzes the development of the cryptocurrency industry over the past year from four different aspects: finance, market, technology and politics.


The report also examines ten major events that occurred in the industry during 2021, and uses them as a basis for forecasting trends for 2022. From a financial perspective, publicly traded companies and central banks are increasingly accepting bitcoin as a digital asset that can replace gold.

Traditional financial institutions are actively entering this market and regulatory compliance has become a major trend. In the last year, DeFi has maintained rapid development, both in scale and type, and DeFi2.0 innovations have evolved to offer better liquidity solutions.

The market value of stablecoins increased rapidly and received the attention of regulators around the world. Companies involved in digital asset compliance continue to grow, and the demand for these services will continue to increase for the foreseeable future.

Several hot topics emerged throughout the year. NFTs showed explosive growth, but behind the bubble, lack of liquidity and price volatility continue to pose problems. The popularity of meme coins has skyrocketed, forming its own subculture and trends.

DAO, GameFi and the metaverse became the buzzwords in 2021. What drives them are innovations in organizational forms, improvements in operating models and further exploration of the limits of virtual reality. Technology drives innovation.

The report analyzes the advantages and disadvantages of the Layer2 technology led by Rollups and possible solutions in the future. Fierce competition between old and new public blockchains constantly challenges the dominance of bitcoin. As the bridges between chains (cross-chain) became important infrastructure, blockchain security is likely to face more challenges.

To future, DAO will become mainstream, DeFi will enter the 2.0 era and CBDCs will be gradually introduced to the public. Behind rapid technological iterations and expanding markets lie enormous development opportunities and an ever-evolving industry.
