WEB3- New Environment for vacancies

The revolution of Web1 to Web3

Web3 is a name for a new era that has arrived. It is a space that offers plenty of job opportunities! With Web1, which started around 1990, static webpages with texts and pictures as formats were mainly created by developers. With Web2 which followed around 2006, a more social and interactive Web was built. With Social-media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, almost any user can become a creator and share content. For companies that rely on personal data, it was a matter of time to generate personalized advertisements, which would increase their revenue. Web2 can genuinely be called the era of Online-Advertisement.

Now, in 2022, there is Web3- it is a relatively new territory that incorporates metaverse, NFTs, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and 3D graphics. Although Web3 is relatively new, there are already a lot of job opportunities on the market. Platforms that have specialized on Web3 roles in tech- and non-tech sectors are increasing and it seems as if Web3 has opened a new door to success.


Now, what differentiates Web3 from Web2? Web3 is decentralized, which means that all Web3 applications run on decentralized networks, crypto-economic protocols, or Blockchains. This huge difference alone creates a new environment for tech, non-tech, and designer job roles. Companies hiring for these roles are either Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAO) that have their focus solely on Web3 or companies that have created a Web3 niche within their company.
