El Moujahid told TechCrunch that Web3 is not going to be a binary thing. He also stated, “You don’t have to build your entire app on-chain. It’s going to be a spectrum: part smart contract; part Web 2.0 APIs.”

He also mentioned that for a long time, developers were waiting for a tool that could aid in connecting Web2 services with Web3. Chainlink Functions will also enable developers to integrate Amazon Web Services and Meta, basically acting like an oracle.
