Hashing It Out: A case for Web3 chat apps with Push Protocol’s Harsh Rajat

Difference between Web 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0

In Episode 39 of Hashing It Out, Harsh Rajat, founder and project lead of Push Protocol, discussed the Ethereum ecosystem and the future of on-chain chat apps. Rajat’s experience with mobile applications showed him the need for notifications in the decentralized applications ecosystem, which are so important for user retention in Web2 applications. He believes that the Ethereum ecosystem is the place for innovation in the blockchain space, due to the mentorship and support from the community, including access to Vitalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum.

Rajat does not think that the narrative of “Ethereum-killers” is realistic, as it is impossible to kill what has been established. He also stated that having multiple layer-2 networks is beneficial, although some will die out, pivot, or become attached to other layer 2s in the long term.

When discussing the difference between Web 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0, Rajat articulated that Web3 messaging apps will be the driving force behind the next wave of crypto adoption. He argued that Web3 communities must pivot away from Web2 tools and become fully on-chain in order to succeed.

Rajat is well-versed in the proliferation of chat applications built on Ethereum. He believes that the demand for these Web3 user experiences is linked to the ongoing development of the space, and users are increasingly looking for Web3 solutions to power their communities and forums.

The conversation also touches on wallets as Web3 identities, the use cases of token-gated group chats, and the future of the Ethereum ecosystem.
