  • Getting most consumers to change their behavior isn’t easy.
  • Innovation occurs because there is a problem that needs solving.

  • Analytics: “The use cases for oracles like Chainlink, querying tools such as The Graph and onChain analytics have only scratched the surface of their potential for brand marketers,” according to the article.
