In 2022 web 3 is at the center of all the tech entrepreneurs debate, growing fast with the Metaverse, NFT’s & Cryptocurrencies.
People tend to follow the trends and jump into every recent opportunity related to the Blockhain or cryptocurrency without understanding exactly what is all about, the secret to make profit in those growing areas of the tech is patience and timing.
Let’s take a closer look of what it requires to jump on the web 3 safely and to understand its code and market.
Why is the web 3 taking over ?
For tech entrepreneurs, it’s really a logical ascension of those new technologies, for the rest of the world, people seems to be lost in the middle of this ocean of information and trends.
The web 3 is in 2022 one of the best opportunity in the digital revolution or the “Third Industrial Revolution” to be more clear is the shift from mechanical and analogue electronic technology to digital electronics which began in the later half of the 20th century.
Like every revolution is the moment where many people get richer by adapting themselves to the change and investing in the new areas that changing the world, to give an example, we can look at Facebook and the name Meta it now took to adapt to this new emerging world, it’s a major sign from one of the most successful company in the world.
There is now more and more investment pumped into those web 3 technologies, we estimate that Venture Capital’s deployed more than 30 Billion dollars just into crypto startups last year and more than 65 startups have become unicorns (Company that worth more than a Billion dollars) have been built.
The crypto market cap on its own have actually reached by far more than a Trillion $ and that is just on the cryptocurrency side of Web 3.
In the Metaverse we see companies of all sizes like: Adidas, Verizon or Walmart are entering into this sector.
In a document JP Morgan says that the Metaverse will likely infiltrate every sector in some way in the coming years and that the market opportunity is estimated at over 1 trillion, enough for new innovative startups to find their way into this amazing new world.
There are now a few startups, leading the way trough the Metaverse with Decentraland, The Sandbox or Cryptovoxels.
Decentraland is a software running on Etherum that seeks to incentivize a global network of users to operate a shared virtual world. Decentraland users can buy and sell digital real estate, while exploring, interacting and playing games within this virtual world.
Decentraland have raise a total of 25.5 Million dollars, The Sandbox is a game for mobile phones and Microsoft Windows and they have raised a total of $95M, Cryptovexels for its part, is a private company working building a virtual world powered by the Ethereum Blockchain as well where players can buy land and build stores and art galleries.
For the NFT’s (Non-Fungible Token) the second most popular sector in web 3 after cryptocurrency is a mix of created or “minted” from digital object that include: graphic art, GIFs, Collectibles, Virtual avatars and video game skins, Designer clothes or Music.
Essentially, NFT’s are like physical items, but they are only digital. So instead of getting an actual outfit to keep at home, the buyer gets a digital file instead to wear on his online game avatar.
They also get exclusive ownership rights. NFTs can have only one owner at a time, and their use of blockchain technology makes it easy to verify ownership and transfer tokens between owners. For instance, artists can sign their artwork by including their signature in the file.
NFT it’s a beautiful form of digital art where even a baby with a phone can create a graphic art and put it to sell in Opensea or Rarible.
A CryptoPunk was sold for an astronomic price of $23M, of course, when you see the art itself you imagine that it could be you doing it.
We can see with all that, the web 3 is definitely taking over with all the fundings and different startup has been built this past year, absolutely something to watch closely and many opportunities to not miss, everyone should be able to find their way in this New World.
It Dosent matter if you would like to Build, start-up, If you like to play with cryptocurrency and its volatility, if you love online games and want to build your own city or if you are an artist and want to express yourself online.
Every person should be able to have their chance create something they care about.
