“Why everyone yearns for Web3.0, because this is a people-oriented era, individual sovereignty returns, and personal value is highlighted. Those who have the ability will nugget Web3.0.”
(This article was originally written by Fenbushi Capital and written by a bandit.)
Although Web3.0 contains richer semantics, from an industry perspective,
Web3.0 refers to
- Network operation and maintenance will be carried out in a more decentralized manner.
- User digital identities, assets and data are owned by individuals.
- Deconstruction and reconstruction of centralized organizational structure.
Web3.0 workers can get rid of geographical barriers and seek more diversified development. Those who can work more, earn more for more work, and have flexible employment. The book Sovereign Individual mentioned this organizational structure, the Hollywood project system —directors, actors, lighting engineers, videographers, sound engineers, and costumers are assembled through projects and go their separate ways after the project is over. So, based on these features of Web3.0, what job opportunities will individuals get in the future? This article will discuss this topic in conjunction with the current state of the industry.
First, let’s take a look at the composition of Web3. According to Coinbase’s classification, Web3 can be roughly divided into 4 layers. They are Protocol layer, Infrastructure / Category Primitives, User Case Layer, and Access Layer. From bottom to top, the bottom layer is the Protocol layer. , which is the underlying architecture of the blockchain, on which all products and services are built, mainly represented by the public chain and the second layer. The second layer is the basic component layer (Infrastructure / Category Primitives) , which consists of interoperable modules, each module corresponds to a specific function, and smart contracts are one of its manifestations. The third layer is the User Case Layer, which contains more front-end applications: games, social networking, Defi, NFT, etc. The top layer is the Access Layer , which is the user’s portal to Web3, mainly wallets and dashboards.

This article mainly divides the types of work into four categories: maintainers , creators , creators , and participants . Each type of work will serve in the corresponding Web3 stack above. Network operators all over the world are the cornerstone of the underlying architecture of Web 3.0, ensuring the normal operation of multiple networks, and generally serving the protocol layer. The creator is the strongest brain of the application layer (smart contract layer & use case layer), injecting new vitality into the industry. Creators rely on the UGC platform in the use case layer to create content and convert the content into digital assets to monetize. Finally, while enjoying the early development dividends of Web3 through the tools of the access layer, participants can also get rewards through their contributions to the ecology.
Type of work: Operator
Whether in the POW or POS era, network operation and maintenance will be carried out through more distributed devices/nodes. Regarding network maintainers, Bitcoin miners, Ethereum miners, and Filecoin miners are the most well-known. Network maintainers shoulder the heavy responsibility of maintaining infrastructure security and fairness, and will play a role in the next-generation Internet, Internet of Things, edge computing, and 5G.
- Node operators need to have physical equipment that meets the requirements.
- Node operators need to be very familiar with the networks they operate and maintain.
Job Category: Creator
The birth of a project requires developers, product design, UI design, market value management, BD, community administrators and other types of work. Here they are grouped under the creator column. In theory, flexible employment applies to these types of jobs.
After the project in hand is gradually improved, non-core developers have the opportunity to move on to the development of the next project. There are not a few people who hold multiple jobs. For example, the development teams of projects such as Realms and Crypts and Caverns in the Loot ecosystem overlap.
Qualifications: full of creativity, quick thinking, energetic, rich development experience
Community administrator Moderator, or MOD for short, is an indispensable profession in Web3.0. NFT, Gamefi, Defi, and DAO projects all require relevant personnel to manage the community. MOD is usually served by the most active community members, but it does not rule out the case where the project party recruits through outsourcing. MOD has become the most competitive profession in the industry due to the opportunity to participate in the profit sharing of the early team.
Eligibility: Have a strong interest in a project and have extensive contacts and industry resources
Type of work: Creator
Since the development of NFT, hundreds of artists and studios such as Beeples, Yuga Labs, Fang Lijun, etc. have released NFT works. Among them, NFTs released by top artists and celebrities are very popular. NFTs skip the middlemen such as traditional galleries and auction houses to provide artists with a new way to realize cash.
Prerequisites: Professional skills in painting and design are required, and it is better to be well-known in the industry.
Since the development of virtual world projects like Sandbox, Decentraland, and Crypto Voxel, there has been a growing demand for companies in the real world to build virtual headquarters. Metaverse architects have also become a cutting-edge profession.
Prerequisites: Skills in UI, modeling, and painting are required, as well as familiarity with different ecological construction modes.
Virtual world projects like Sandbox, Decentraland, and Crypto Voxel are essentially UGC platforms. Game designers can not only create their own NFTs on the platform, but also participate in the design of maps, levels and battle modes in games on the platform, and have their own voxel games.
Prerequisites: Voxel design and game production experience
Type of work: Participant
In some chain game industries, gold diggers and guilds have become a very important part of the ecology. Due to the different classifications of chain games, some are more expensive, and some are more game-oriented, so their game player groups are also very different. Axie Infinity players need to buy more expensive game assets to make gold, so the guild pays the players to contribute to the early P2E mode. In Sandbox and Skyweaver, only smooth and experienced players can get gold rewards.
Condition: In krypton gold games, players need to have a budget to purchase game assets;
In non-krypton gold games, players need to have superb game skills.
Defi/Cefi miners refer to groups that flexibly allocate funds to Defi protocols/centralized exchanges to earn revenue. They often have insight into the Defi product model and security, and can immediately discover the new protocol with the highest profitability, commonly known as head mining. The behavior of Defi/Cefi miners has gone far beyond the nature of personal investment, and requires systematic research and a keen sense of industry.
Qualifications: A certain amount of capital and the professionalism of Defi/Cefi.
To sum up the above, talents with professional skills, language proficiency, active thinking and full creativity will have more competitive advantages in Web3.0. From the perspective of entrepreneurship, outstanding talents need to get rid of the traditional web2.0 thinking logic to develop new products, have the appeal to get the support of most people, and integrate resources to expand ecological construction. It’s okay if the average person can’t become a “specialized” talent like an entrepreneur. Concentrates can also capture their own opportunities by virtue of their ability to discover, gain insight, and summarize and analyze projects.
