'Chasing money is an exhausting process'

These winning projects will be the foundation for a community of talented builders on Viction. In 2024, Viction aims to select about 20-50 projects with products that have a significant impact and the potential to become industry leaders. The focus is on creating better engagement mechanisms within the developer community, including DAO voting and community forums.

Viction places special emphasis on network stability, scalability, and developer resources. An upcoming protocol on Viction is the Stake derivative protocol with hardware solutions to help validators avoid errors and ensure smooth transactions.

According to Mr. Thanh Le, a board member of the Viction Foundation and founder of Ninety Eight, the goal is not to compete with other Layer 1 and Layer 2 projects but to identify activities that make Viction better. “This is how we build a strong community as well as a robust Layer 1," he said.

Taking Solana as an example: its ecosystem currently trades at around $30 billion fully diluted value (FDV). The founders of Ninety Eight invested in Solana when the system had a mere $20 million FDV and the project's ecosystem was almost non-existent. According to Mr. Thanh Le, nearly all the "alphas" and upside in the crypto space are captured when everything is still at a very small scale.

"Viction may not be significant at the moment, but as the ecosystem develops, the upside potential may diminish. Upside opportunities are typically available for those who dedicate their time when projects are in their early stages. This is why we believe, instead of pursuing alphas elsewhere, it's more prudent to concentrate on the aspects we can control and generate an alpha," Mr. Thanh Le suggested.

According to Mr. Thanh Le, adopting this mindset is advantageous in the current market landscape, where thousands of blockchains exist and people are constantly rotating money.

"Persistently chasing money is an exhausting process. It will be more rewarding if you invest your time in building a truly exceptional product and share memorable moments with people who are equally committed to the long-term success of that product," he concluded.

The Ninety Eight team is actively implementing this approach with Viction.
