How to get started in web3 ?

How to get started in web3 I didn't know what web3 was 7 months ago. Recently I completed the #100daysofweb3 challenge! Here you go, my web3 roadmap for anyone getting started:

1/4 Start by doing Start by learning and using the tools in the web3/crypto space Do anything related to crypto but DO it. Don't just listen to a podcast or read a blog post.

  • setup a crypto wallet eg:@MetaMask @phantom
  • Interact with dApps: exchange some tokens, get an ens name etc.

Checkout @rabbithole_gg , a dApp to onboard users to web3. It has some challenges for you to get started in the web3 world

2/4 Read, Research, Repeat There is so much to learn and too many myths! Make sure to spend some time and do your own research. Here are some resources to get you started:

(for Devs) 3/4 Building Now that you have a basic understanding of the web3 space, it's time to start building. Here are communities and builders that have guided me; my journey would not have been possible w/o the people here:

Some tips:

  • Take it slow; there are many technologies to learn, and it's all brand new. It can get overwhelming very quickly

  • Focus on a specific area (eg: frontend)

  • Document your progress (can't overstate how many times I went back to my own content to remember)

  • Start shipping! Don't wait for perfect. Upload your projects to GitHub, start a blog, create videos anything you're interested in

  • Go beyond the tutorial and add some creativity Woman artist

  • Try out the #100daysofcode challenge (ps: i'd highly encourage to take breaks on the way)

4/4 Get involved
