The emergence of web3 has allowed curious people to go wild in an open-source, transparent, and welcoming space. The fast-growing space has allowed many people to contribute value, gain knowledge, and build a career for themselves. We want to take it one step further. We want you to come out on top by building your own project, contributing massive value, gaining a lot of knowledge, and making a name for yourself.
Buidling on web3 compared to anywhere else in this time of age comes with a list of benefits;
Unlock a more valuable internet for everyone
Competitive compensation for your work
Many free, high-quality resources to get you started and going
A large network of people willing to help and looking to expand opportunities
A wide area of skills to expand in
Many web3 pioneers built a career for themselves because of their curiosity and discipline. People with zero background in IT started teaching themselves how to write Solidity and build DeFi protocols, NFT marketplaces, DAOs, and more. Also, other skills, like people with an interest in blockchains, started writing about them, landing content jobs at large protocols and DAOs. How about the entrepreneur from web2 that founded a project in web3 by receiving the right help? These people leveraged their curiosity and discipline to build something for themselves. Now, how can you do this too?
As we mentioned, web3 has many free, high-quality resources to get you started. Here are three things that will help massively, but finding the right ones is difficult.
By resources, we mean things like tutorials, hosting, mentoring, marketing support, infra support, audit services, listings, liquidity support, and more. These resources will help you leverage your ideas, tasks, and projects to a whole new level.
By people, we mean people that have skin in the game, experience, and a network in web3. They know everything related to the resources we mentioned above. Those people can help you fit your needs and advise you on what is best in your situation.
By funding, we mean financial support for your project and ideas. The general term for this is grants. By receiving grants, you can build at a faster pace by hiring more people, getting the right tools, and more.
What if there was a place where you could find all these three things and leverage them to grow your web3 career? Well, there is.
