Web 3.0 is the next evolution of the Internet, predicted to be characterised by cryptocurrency, decentralised platforms, and a return to an Internet controlled by and for its users.
With this radical shift in structure, many are questioning what will become of social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter in this new era. How can centralised conglomerate companies exist on a decentralised Internet?
While it is difficult to predict what the future may hold, two crypto projects exist which might be an indication of what the Web 3.0 Internet may hold. These are Decentraland (MANA) and Mushe (XMU).
Decentraland (MANA) and the Metaverse
While several metaverse projects exist, both in production and to the public, it is Decentraland (MANA) that many will point to as a pioneer of the concept, or at least the most popular.
Metaverses are online spaces where content is created for and by the community within it, and where cryptocurrency can be used as payment in purchasing, selling, or trading in-game assets and items.
In Decentraland (MANA), for example, users can create spaces like houses and parks that others can use on land that they purchase in-game. This land is a finite resource, meaning it holds great value and can be used in a variety of ways2, such as a space to display digital items.
Users can also create items, like clothing and accessories, which can also be purchased, with items varying in price due to their rarity or additional perks received by buyers.
Decentraland (MANA) offers an immersive experience beyond what is offered by current social media platforms, providing an experience that incorporates gaming whilst also offering a financial outlet, all while offering the international socialising experience of platforms like Facebook.
With Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg describing Metaverse technology as the future of the Internet, will Decentraland (MANA) be at the forefront of Web 3.0?
Mushe (XMU) and Mushe Chat
While Mushe (XMU) does have plans to bring about its own Metaverse in the future, one social media feature unique to Mushe (XMU) that may be indicative of the Internet's future is the Mushe Chat. This upcoming platform will combine aspects of both Web 2.0 social media platforms and Web 3.0 decentralised governance, to create an easily accessible platform to help usher in this new digital age.
Mushe Chat takes aspects like the end-to-end encrypted text chat features of platforms like Whatsapp, the NFT profile picture capabilities of platforms like Twitter, and the ease of payment transfers like those seen on PayPal, and places them on a completely decentralised platform.
This decentralisation means users do not have to fear issues like the data collection and selling currently occurring on Web 2.0 social media, and that decisions being made regarding change and evolution of the platform are being made by the community, as opposed to out-of-touch directors or CEOs.
The Mushe Chat exists as the perfect stepping stone for newcomers of crypto into the world of Web 3.0, combining familiar aspects with the new capabilities this coming era of the Internet allows for.
This aligns perfectly with Mushe’s (XMU) overall goal, which is to bring everyday people into the world of cryptocurrency through a combination of education and easily accessible technologies.
Maybe this more approachable platform type will become the blueprint for social media's future?
