Building Web 3.0 through the internet's roots: universities
The Internet was invented when universities spun up nodes (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network) to share research papers. This group became the first to adopt the TCP/IP protocol and became the foundation of what we now know was the Internet. We believe Web 3.0 will be launched in a similar way - based in research and academia.
BlockVenture has taken a resource driven approach to education, curricula, and learning. Whether it's spinning up the first node at a university, hosting a $1m Bitcoin treasure hunt, or sponsoring reseach programs - we substantiate our talk with action.
First hand, we've seen the most successful way of bringing people into the space is through doing. We've found creative ways to engage with different groups and programs. The talent brewing at research programs is swelling year-by-year and backing them to chase their creative goals is a net-positive for the entire ecosystem.
