Imagine working at Microsoft in its infancy or Apple when Steve Jobs considered the future of personal computers. Many individuals are intrigued and looking to switch to Web3 because of their similarities. However, there is also a great deal of confusion, disorder, and anonymity.
In some aspects, working with Web3 concepts and products is similar to working with cutting-edge Web2 ideas and products. Still, there is significantly more new technology and language to master than Web2.
Here are five things you should know before switching to Web3
Avoid the SOS(Shiny Object Syndrome) Mentality:
During the first several months, everything will look to be fantastic. This industry is filled with so much activity and information that you may feel overwhelmed mentally. Regardless matter how exciting things may appear at the moment, it is essential to remember to proceed slowly. Don’t let the current trend divert your attention.
Pick a Niche:
Through the buying of NFTs, I was able to get valuable knowledge regarding blockchain technology. I also discovered how Defi is reshaping the finance business. Choosing a specialty where you can utilize your present skills will help you avoid the SOS, a typical issue many creatives face.
Take it one step at a time.
Acquire your first NFT
Familiarize yourself with decentralized applications (Dapps)
Understand the basics of Blockchain
Have a plan and know what you want to do.
As I mentioned, having a web3 career keeps you on your toes.
To grasp the ecosystem and how it all works together, you’ll need to read a lot. For example, if you haven’t already read through the original Bitcoin whitepaper or the documentation for Ethereum, you can start by doing so now.
Whatever your level of expertise, understanding web3 technology from the ground up is the best way to create a career in the field.
Be proactive and take the initiative to learn new things and keep up with trends in your field so that you can stay ahead of the curve rather than being left behind by it.
Don’t be afraid to try new things, even if they seem scary at first — they might be fantastic!
I’ve learned so much about Web3 in the past couple of months from different forms of content like podcasts, white papers, blogs, Youtube videos, and courses.
However, I also learned that it’s beneficial to surround yourself with like-minded individuals on a journey. This is a huge deal. You’ll be able to learn more quickly because you’ll be exchanging information that neither of you knows.
Every day for the next 30 days, I will document my transition into Web3. I’ll also clarify blockchain concepts for your benefit so you can easily transition.
