The crypto saw an increase in value after Web3 Foundation, the organization accountable for granting projects on the Polkadot blockchain, passed 400 projects. It had earlier received hundreds of such projects out of which it granted a go-ahead for approximately 40% of those applications.
The Web3 Foundation recently revealed that it had received 1,054 project applications out of which it passed 415. The potential of each project varies considerably and encompasses the entire web3 ecosystem.

“A wide range of decentralized use cases, including digital identity and privacy, IoT, games, data storage, and finance.”
