The Future of Work: why you should be looking to Web3
Web3 is the future of work. Despite the looming specter of a bear market or crypto winter, our faith remains unshaken that Web3 will prevail and continue to unlock an abundance of prospects in the job market.
Whether your aspirations lie in securing a full-time role within a Web3 entity, seeking several part-time positions that offer greater adaptability and work variety, considering growth as a DAO contributor, or being a bounty hunter compensated per task, Web3 presents all of these possibilities.
A World of Opportunities
Web3, as a worldwide industry, presents numerous appealing aspects for contributors. One of the most compelling attractions is the opportunity to collaborate with intellectually stimulating individuals who possess similar values - they are forward-looking, innovative, and always prepared to confront a new challenge. This sentiment was echoed by 20% of contributors during our Web3 Contributor Survey ‘22.
Personal freedom, mobility, and the option to work from any location are other significant aspects favoring work in Web3. Your opportunities are no longer restricted by geographical boundaries. Many individuals in this industry globetrot and work from wherever they might be at any given moment. As long as you have internet access, you can work. More often than not, you can set your own hours that best accommodate your schedule. As long as the work is accomplished, the timing doesn't matter.
Web3 has also fundamentally transformed the Creator economy. Musicians, Artists, Writers, and others now have more control over their brand, content, and how it's monetized. That's the essence of this "read/write/own" version of the internet.
Web3 is a sector driven by its participants who take on a myriad of roles and responsibilities, including being an employee, contributor, investor, and trader. They typically spend about 10 hours a day conducting research and working. Most are driven by a mission, working on 1–3 projects, with DeFi, NFTs, and L1-L2 being their primary interests. Most Web3 professionals are part-timers, with over 80% working up to 48 hours per week. These individuals are truly Web3 superheroes who manage their time effectively.
Money, money, money in the rich Web3 world
Web3 is a lucrative industry, offering high-paying roles for individuals from a variety of backgrounds. Entry-level smart contract developers can earn up to $120k/year, twice the average salary of their Web2 counterparts. Even non-technical roles, such as product managers, can earn up to $112k/year in Web3, as opposed to $75k/year in Web2. According to a recent survey by intropia, the majority of Web3 professionals earn an average monthly income between $3,000 and $8,000, and about 10% earn over $10,000 per month. While these numbers vary based on skills, experience, and role, it's clear that Web3 offers considerable earning potential for those willing to dive in.

If the board is made public, bounty hunters can be directed to the board to apply for tasks and be paid upon completion.
