The searches for Web3 have skyrocketed over the past year as netizens familiarize themselves with this up-and-coming version of the internet. Although there's still a lot of ambiguity among people as to what web 3.0 is, the shifting gears are already in motion as thousands of devs flock to web 3, leaving the good ol' web2 behind.
The biggest problem, or rather, the threat that web 2.0 poses, is a privacy risk. Users have to rely on a centralized party like Facebook, Google, or financial institutes like PayPal to safeguard their data. If any of these platforms get compromised, the data gets leaked. Plus, whatever these giants decide, users have to follow. There's no democracy. These are the main issues that web 3.0 solves.
Web 3.0 creates an 'Open’ and 'Trustless' system of interaction and transactions where users don't have to be bound by a single entity's rules or trust them for anything. Software are built on open-source platforms so devs can access and make changes to fit their needs. The absence of a central or governing body allows the netizens to vote and then set their own rules. This is the truest form of free and safe internet that was a dream of every millennial; a reason why the digital workforce, mainly developers, is migrating to this new internet.
One such example is a creator who made the switch to web 3.0 recently, Antonio. With over 7 years of experience working as a data analyst, Antonio never really felt affection towards anything he developed on web2.0 while working with various companies.
"It always seemed like a key part of the relationship, "Business vs Customers", was missing. After 6+ years of researching and investing in the crypto market, I drove my focused on the NFT market for the past 12 months, and I decided to leave my well-paid position in one of the biggest Industries in Brazil with the goal of starting my own company in Web3," - Said Antonio.
His new web 3.0-based company, called Gomlabs, fulfils his decades-old dream; making something for the people that's open, trustless, and offers deeper connectivity with the brand.
Antonio spent half a year honing his game development and web designing skills and learning about web 3.0 protocols and smart contracts. As a result, he founded Gomlabs, a web 3.0-based video game where players can mint NFTs as they go through various challenges.
"I started GomLabs alone, using some of my lifesaving to build the foundation of what I expect could change the NFT market for the better. After analyzing some of the players in this Market, I knew that I could create something unique, something fresh that can make people feel related to our ideas." - Stated Antonio.
