Metaverse: These will be the five most popular professions in the future

With Metaverse, not only is a new world of experience being created, but an entirely new business segment as well. The virtual field represents the next big step in the digital revolution unleashed by blockchain technology and cryptocurrency and has seen a surge in demand for professionals in recent years.

Blockchain and cryptocurrency: where are we now?

According to an analysis of LinkedIn job postings for the US market, the demand for qualified employees in these regions grew by 395 percent. So, after the era of pioneers (Web 1) and its social and easy-to-use version (Web 2.0), the next technological development is around the corner: Web 3, which is based on connectivity, immersion and decentralization, i.e., at most a container of many metaverses, whose architecture is supported by Before Blockchain, that is, independent, decentralized databases that acted as certificates of authentication and security for all kinds of digital information. It is like a real virtual city divided into neighborhoods where everything that happens (especially commercial transactions) is meticulously documented.

Thanks to these properties, blockchain has become a technology used in many productive sectors, from finance (which accounts for 38 percent of today’s blockchain applications, such as cryptocurrencies) to industries such as the arts and media (7 percent). , agri-food industry (6 percent) and logistics (5 percent). However, the concept of blockchain is still foreign to most people and far from encountering it in everyday life: according to a study by the Observer Blockchain & Distributed Ledger, 46 percent of those surveyed said they are familiar with the concept of cryptocurrency, but have never found it. 21 percent said they have bought it in the past (4 percent) or intend to buy it in the future (17 percent). Only 8 percent said they actually own cryptocurrency.

Departure to Metaverse

“Behind all the popular phenomena like cryptocurrencies, NFTs and the Metaverse is blockchain technology. This is a new paradigm that we will likely see materialize in a few decades: right now we are like explorers discovering new continents. Each of these continents is the Metaverse, some of which are websites, And some will be virtual worlds, and some will be augmented reality: we don’t yet know which ones we’ll get to and which ones will definitely be habitable, and getting to these “unknown lands” requires courage and knowledge, the same knowledge we teach our students every day in the field Programming at aulab,” says Giancarlo Valenti, Chief Technology Officer at aulab, the first coding factory in Italy, who launched the Hackademy course and made it in just three months allowing you to acquire all the skills needed to start your career in web development, even from scratch.

So if you are looking for a job in a company dedicated to the metaverse, you should start your education and acquire special skills now; The most in-demand jobs in the Metaverse business are likely to be:

cyber security expert

Unlike traditional versions of the Internet, where control of digital environments and data rests in the hands of whoever created the platform, the real revolution in blockchain is to give each user the ability to control them. From this point of view, Web 3 ensures greater security of data and digital goods, but at this stage of development in the history of technology, the architecture of Web 3 is still modern and evolving. For this reason, one of the most important professions in the development of the blockchain-based metaverse will be that of a cybersecurity expert: these professionals will have the task of securing Web3 environments controlled by the blockchain and ensuring that those already implemented systems actually guarantee the tightness of the “chain”.

Virtual and Augmented Reality Designers

The most immersive experience of the Metaverse is the one created using Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technologies. Just as the explosion of the Internet led to the rise of the web designer, the Metaverse opens up new opportunities for professionals who design and implement virtual and augmented reality environments. These methods and skills come from the world of video games, for example, and require not only a 2D navigation experience, but also 3D environments that interact with the physical dimension of the real and offline world. Web3 designers will play a major role in “designing” the new digital spaces we will live in. (Also: These are the 20 best-paid employers in Germany)

Innovation Manager

As part of the merger, web3 will become an important development hub for companies of all types and sizes. As a theoretical and practical expert, the Innovation Manager’s job is to support these companies to seize the opportunities of the metaverse and blockchain to drive digitization and transformation processes in order to innovate business models and thus unlock new business opportunities in unexplored regions.

Digital art has always had a hard time becoming a work as it was very easy to reproduce and thus difficult to attribute uniqueness, ownership and value to. Thanks to the blockchain, new evidence of ownership of digital assets has been developed such as works of pixel art or other forms of digital creativity. Called NFTs (non-fungible tokens), they allow artists, also called crypto artists, to create Certificates of Authenticity for digital works in order to sell them to enthusiasts and collectors like the traditional art market, but of course pay with cryptocurrency.
