Everywhere you turn, you hear people talking about Web3 and the career opportunities that will grow in the next few years. But what is Web3?
A quick search on Google will surface several definitions which will all point to 4 key words: ownership, decentralization, blockchain and peer-to-peer networks.
But what does that mean for you? Here’s a quick breakdown of the progress from Web1 to Web3.
Initially coined by Gavin Wood, the co-founder of Ethereum, Web3 gained popularity in 2021 among crypto enthusiasts and venture capital firms, and is growing as a very real movement, even though Jack Dorsey and Elon Musk have very publicly dissed it.
But beyond all the debates about the the applications of Blockchain in the future, true value of cryptocurrency, whether decentralisation and NFTs are just a hype, there is constant innovation in Web3…and where there is innovation, there are jobs!
How can you prepare to become a part of the Web3 future?
🚀 Inform thyself
Read up all you can on Web3. There are lots of good resources available to help you onboard the world of Web3 — all you need is initiative…and time! Once you take the first step, you’ll see that it isn’t rocket science! 😉
🚀 Explore the world of Web3
Step away from the world of Web 2.0 to explore and discover what’s happening in Web3. Tiktok and Instagram are so tempting, I know, but just a few minutes a day is all you need! Product Hunt and Twitter are a great place to discover innovations in Web3.⌛
🚀 Engage with the community
Don’t understand something? Have an opinion? Want to share an idea? Talk to the community. Web3 is about giving back to the user. Voice your thoughts, express your opinions, claim your space! 💪
🚀 Understand job requirements
So you don’t have a technical background, and are worried that by the time AI and Web3 are done with you, you’ll end up in the government queue for unemployment benefits? Relax, there is space for everyone in Web3, from content creators and community builders, to project managers and data analysts! 🙌
