Recent analysis by Emergen Research has found that the global Web 3.0 market size is on the rise. It was $3.2 billion in 2021 and it will reach $81.5 billion in 2030, representing a CAGR of 43.7%.

“Increasing preference and use of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) as well as digital collectibles, digital currencies and other blockchain entities is expected to continue to support revenue growth of the market going ahead,” the report’s authors say.

That means of course, that jobs are growing also. As the field continues to evolve, new roles and opportunities are likely to emerge.

Because many Web3 roles require a strong understanding of blockchain technology and related concepts, they’re a great example of why it is so crucial for technologists to keep upskilling and staying up-to-date with the latest developments across the sector.

In addition to job titles you might expect such as blockchain developers and architects; smart contract developers; decentralized application (DApp) developers, and cryptocurrency traders and analysts, plenty of other roles look set to emerge.

Blockchain researchers, consultants and project managers, DAO managers, DeFi and NFT experts, as well as UX/UI designers specializing in blockchain are all roles we may see more of.

Other sources say that the top five jobs in Web3 right now are software engineers, smart contract engineers, social media managers, community managers and business development managers.
