Our ‘reality’ is changing. But are we ready to accept it?
The digital age may have changed how one communicates, but the pandemic-induced physical distances have entirely transformed communication patterns for a large global audience.
The news is buzzing with jargon like Web 3.0, Metaverse, and the ultimate Virtual Age. But what is not being addressed is whether we will be able to survive this new era?
Considering the fact that the latest batch of graduates and young professionals have more or less studied in a simulation, it is apparent that when they join formal employment, their experiences will lead to harsh wake-up call. But we will come to this later!
What Is The Catch Here?
On a statistical level, more than 70 percent of businesses have invested in new equipment or revamped the current framework to accommodate the digitized future. There is no doubt that the world as we know it today, will no longer exist in a decade or two.
- The cryptocurrency market caps at $2.05 trillion, qualifying as the eighth largest economy in the world.
- Did you know that the first NFT was sold for $1.4 million?
- Additionally, millions of dollars are being invested in the burgeoning Metaverse by gamers, developers, and investors on a daily basis to prepare for the next stage of online existence.
Why does it matter, you may ask?
Well, if investments are all moving in the same direction, wouldn’t the entire world sway the same way?
How Does The Change Impact Us Today?
A quick glance at the history of internet usage reveals that it started as a medium of communication during the war. With gradual development, it evolved into a global network that filled the communication gap in the form of chat rooms and basic websites.
In Gen Z terms, the distance covered by Web 2.0 is symbolized by the change from MySpace to Tinder.
But today, the internet is no longer restricted to communication. It has transformed from a communication technology into a global entity that controls your education, employment, entertainment, consumption and of course interaction with others.
Meta by Mark Zuckerberg was announced as a medium to erase physical differences. Fueling the fire, increased gravitation towards games and devices that transcend physical reality like the oculus has helped people experience what living in a virtual bubble would be like.
While the Virtual Age is in its infancy, it is time for us to prepare for the changes that are yet to come. And since sustenance even in the virtual world would require a medium of exchange, it is critical to establish your professional route.
Preparing For The Next Stage
It is apparent that Web 3.0 has already laid its foundation. With the rise of awareness about cryptocurrency and NFTs, you may not necessarily dive straight to the deep end but securing your footing today would help you tomorrow in more ways than one.
The Lone Wolf Wanders But The Pack Survives
This may seem like a throwback to the Starks from Game of Thrones but this adage applies to all of us!
