The Impacts of Web3 on Workplace Change

The move into Web3 has fueled a renewed interest in self-sovereignty and ownership over one’s own work. As public blockchains and decentralized finance come into vogue, people are pushing the boundaries of convention. This phenomenon can be observed in currency, on the internet, and even in the workplace itself.

As the digital world changes, the work people do with digital technology changes as well. Nowhere is this more true than in the tech industry. By 2025, more than 12 million new jobs will be created by tech. Demand for digital roles like full-stack developer or data scientist is already soaring. For Web3 developers specifically, demand for labor at the top 3 platforms tripled in 2021. All of these roles pay well for candidates with the right skill set.

Outside the tech industry, the Web3 mindset is encouraging more independent work. For some, this means becoming a self-employed worker. Online platforms make it easier for self-employed workers to find and manage their own affairs. For those not ready to become their own boss, independent work can also mean more flexibility in scheduling and location. Remote work allows some jobs to be done from anywhere on Earth. The future of work approaches.
