As a go to source for detailed information about projects in the crypto landscape, Everest supports the listing of old projects that are contributing to its the Web3 vision of decentralization. This includes dApps and DAOs but also research organizations, nonprofits and funds.
Everest is searchable across 19 high-level categories, which enables several potential use cases for the app.

Investors are able to source Everest for potential investments.
Everest can be used to showcase and discover new products, dApps and organizations.
Another functionality of Everest is to test the activity level of members in curating the registry
Projects registered on Everest have an ERC-1056 identity. The metadata of projects and their identities are captured in the Everest subgraph. It is envisioned that dApps use the Everest subgraph in order to use the data in applications such as work applications, events/meetups and news.
