Lesson 26: How Are No-code Tools Transforming Web3?

Lesson Intro:

The world’s largest crypto exchange, Binance, entered into a collaboration agreement with our nonprofit, the Prison Professors Charitable Corporation. With this collaboration, we’re able to provide justice-impacted people with a great resource they can use to learn about cryptocurrency, decentralized finance (DeFi), Web3.0, Artificial Intelligence, and other topics that relate to the digital economy. The agreement is part of our nonprofit’s ongoing efforts to help people prepare for success after prison.

Some people have access to our videos, others do not. If a staff member in your prison will authorize videos, invite them to contact Prison Professors for information on how we can send DVDs with additional educational materials to help people learn–and potentially an in-person presentation in your facility.

Each lesson includes critical thinking questions and a glossary. We encourage participants to use these lessons, and to memorialize their learning path by building a profile on Prison Professors Talent. More information on how to build a personal profile at the end of this workbook.

26. How Are No-code Tools Transforming Web3?


  • No-code tools empower individuals to build decentralized applications without coding abilities
  • No-code tools simplify complex Web3 processes, making blockchain more accessible to all
  • There are various limitations associated with no-code tools, such as data security and limited functionality.

What Are No-code Tools?

No-code tools empower individuals to build applications, websites, or automate processes without needing to write code. They largely leverage a visual development environment, enabling users to design interfaces and workflows by dragging and dropping elements.

No-code tools in the crypto space allow people without technical coding skills to interact with, build on, and leverage blockchain technologies. These platforms provide ready-to-use interfaces and workflows, enabling users to perform functions that usually require complex coding, such as creating smart contracts, building a decentralized application (DApp), initiating DeFi (decentralized finance) transactions, and more.

For instance, a no-code platform might let a user set up a smart contract on the Ethereum network by filling in specifics about a transaction, such as parties involved and conditions for the transaction, without any coding. Similarly, it could enable users to create DApps, crypto trading bots, or yield farming operations by simply selecting options and defining conditions.

No-code Tool Use Cases in Web3

No-code tools in Web3 are enabling a wide range of applications, making the decentralized web more accessible to users with non-technical backgrounds. Here are some use cases:

  1. Decentralized applications (DApps)
    • No-code platforms enable people without technical skills to create DApps that run on blockchain technology. Users can easily build games, marketplaces, social networks, and more with no coding.
  2. Smart contracts
    • Users can funnel simple or complex operations through smart contracts on blockchain platforms like Ethereum and BNB Smart Chain (BSC). No-code tools simplify the process, allowing users to define terms and conditions without coding.
  3. Decentralized finance (DeFi)
    • No-code platforms can help implement DeFi functionalities, allowing users to create their own yield farming strategies, launch liquidity mining schemes, or even prototype a whole DeFi protocol.

What Are the Benefits of No-code Tools?

Let’s look into some of the distinct benefits no-code tools offer within the crypto landscape:

  1. Accessible
    • No-code tools break down barriers to software development, making technology creation accessible to individuals regardless of their coding skills. They democratize application development, empowering anyone to become a creator.
  2. Efficient
    • The drag-and-drop function of no-code interfaces accelerates the design and development process. No-code tools eliminate the need for long coding hours, potentially improving development speed and productivity.
  3. Cost reduction
    • By reducing reliance on specialized programmers, companies can cut down on development expenses. Furthermore, the quick turnaround time of building and updating apps using no-code tools requires less resource usage.
  4. User friendly
    • No-code platforms allow for quick edits and updates, accommodating business changes swiftly. They offer an unmatched level of agility compared to traditional programming, enabling businesses to evolve and innovate faster.

What Are the Limitations of No-code Tools

Let’s look into some of the distinct limitations associated with no-code tools:

  1. Limited customization
    • While no-code tools offer a wide range of functionality, they may not meet very specific or complex requirements due to their framework limitations. For high-level customization, traditional coding often remains the best option.
  2. Data security concerns
    • Due to a more accessible development environment, there can be potential security threats or data breaches if privacy standards are not strictly adhered to or if the tool doesn’t inherently enforce strong security measures.
  3. Dependence on vendor
    • Using a no-code platform invariably ties businesses to the chosen vendor. Any issues with the platform, updates, pricing changes, or even company fold-ups can significantly impact the use and sustainability of the developed application.
  4. Scalability issues
    • While no-code platforms can efficiently handle small to medium-sized applications, they might face challenges with projects demanding high computational power or handling the complexities of massive data sets.

Closing Thoughts

In the realm of Web3, no-code tools have become key drivers of innovation by opening up opportunities for broader participation. These tools enhance accessibility, enabling individuals and organizations to quickly and efficiently deploy blockchain-based solutions, in turn helping us all realize the full potential of decentralized technology.

However, these attributes should not overshadow the constraints that come with no-code solutions. The limitations, ranging from customization constraints to data security concerns, are essential to be considered in relation to traditional coding.

In the end, while no-code tools bring blockchain’s power closer to a broader populace, deploying them should coincide with a careful evaluation of their potential risks and limitations. Their use, thus, should be part of a diversified approach to blockchain development, blended with traditional coding for complex requirements.

Advocacy Initiative:

We encourage participants to begin memorializing the ways they are using time in prison to prepare for success upon release. I encourage participants to create a personal profile by:

  1. Writing a simple biography
  2. Writing a daily journal to show all that you’re learning
  3. Writing book reports that memorialize the books you read
  4. Writing a release plan to show the ways you’re preparing for success upon release

These strategies helped me immensely once I got out. By using my time wisely inside, I was able to raise capital, build businesses, and succeed in ways that few people would think are possible for someone who served multiple decades in prison. Anyone can do the same—if they prepare first.

If you’d like to follow in the same footsteps, I encourage you to begin building your personal profile. Get started by sending an email message to our team at:
