Web 3 is one of many possible paths for future technological advancement. Through the race towards the metaverse, we’ll see more advanced ways for users to interact with content online. These include voice recognition and artificial intelligence algorithms that help users find the things they need. Here are two ways this technology is playing out today.
ARWeave is a decentralized storage network powered by the Ethereum blockchain and the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) protocol. It allows secure and decentralized storage of any data on the internet. The network functions by allowing users to rent unused space on their hard drives in exchange for tokens. Users can earn ARWeave tokens by providing free storage space to others.
The Sandbox Metaverse
The Sandbox Metaverse is an online platform where users create simulated environments. These can be explored using avatars or virtual representations of themselves. The Sandbox Metaverse has already been used to create several successful games and educational programs, including a Minecraft-style game called “Everlife.” This virtual reality platform is similar to Second Life but has more functionality and a better user experience.
What this technology might look like in the next few decades is unknown. But it’s likely that any advancements will better serve users as they go about their daily lives. The race toward the metaverse is sure to bring many new advancements.
