How Web3 Tools are Entering the Workplace
The digital revolution has had a profound impact on the workplace. The shape of its impact has been dictated by both the tools the internet made available and who controlled the online space. While the past several years have been dominated by an expansion of the web’s abilities, these developments have happened under the shadow of corporate ownership. Now, Web3 developers are bringing back decentralization in the digital world. As the internet grows less centralized, so too is the workplace. Web3 shapes the future of work.
Thanks to the web’s ability to connect skilled individuals with clients and a platform, more people are considering independent work as an option. In 2021, 2 in 3 people considered quitting their jobs because of greater opportunities available to them. By 2028, as many as 90 million people could be self-employed. While this route offers less job and income stability than working for another person would, it also offers people more control over their duties and schedule. Independent workers have the potential to make more money than wage or salary workers because they take home a greater portion of the revenue they generate. Self-sovereignty comes with a sense of empowerment traditional employment can’t match.
