Be Ahead of the Curve

The future of Web 3.0 that we all envision, essentially the Economy of Everything, must be on a common network.


Websites won’t exist. Instead, there will be web worlds networked with nested entities of people, places, and things, both real and virtual. All of this will be searchable and accessible. Our daily lives will be augmented with shared data between these two realms, physical and digital.


Anything that wants to be recognized will have to be included in this network. 


VERSES Technologies is building the foundation technology to enable this network.


In 1990, Sir Tim Berners-Lee combined the coding language HTML with an innovative new protocol, HTTP to connect “hyperlinked” pages for the foundation of the World Wide Web, which became a global, accessible digital library of information.


Today, VERSES Technologies is establishing the next-level Spatial Web Protocols and Standards, laying the spatial framework for what’s coming next — a fully networked, searchable, and accessible Spatial Interface powered by KOSM™ AI.


Their intention: to create an open and secure means of exchange between all people, objects, digital and physical spaces, content, and assets, across all locations, platforms, and devices.


 After nearly five years in development, the VERSES team is well on their way.


Web 3.0 is About to Take a Giant Leap


Throughout 2021, VC’s invested $33 Billion in Crypto and Blockchain startups. Currently, 2022 is on pace to nearly double that. Cointelegraph research recently reported Web3 as the most sought-after investment sector of 2022, including Cryptography, Web3, NFTs, Wallets, Metaverses, Gaming, deFi, Media, Communities, and DAOs.


These technologies along with humans, machines, content, data, assets, locations, buildings, factories, workflows, imagination, and the context of real-time interaction across every one of them, THIS is the Web 3.0 of the future.


Every protocol, platform, interaction, messaging, data distribution, 1st Layer, 2nd Layer, developer API and Language aspect of Web3 that is in development today needs to be thinking about this transition to the Spatial Web. 


As Dan Mapes of VERSES and The Spatial Web Foundation points out, in regard to today’s Web 2.0, “The internet is one network of 50 billion computers and 10 billion webpages — you are either on this or you are not.”


Just as critical as the searchability of websites, information, and content has been to the World Wide Web of these past 32 years, the same will be true of the Spatial Web.


If you, as a company, project, individual, are not included in this all-inclusive new Network of Everything, you will be invisible in Web 3.0 and unknowable to the world.


Special thanks to Dan Mapes, President and Co-Founder, VERSES Technologies, and Director of The Spatial Web Foundation. If you’d like to know more about The Spatial Web, I highly recommend a helpful introductory book written by Dan and his VERSES Co-Founder, Gabriel Rene, titled, “The Spatial Web,” with a dedication “to all future generations.”
