I waxed poetic a couple of weeks back about the Metaverse. It is part of the larger grouping of new technologies and opportunities that fall under the umbrella of Web 3.0. The Metaverse, which is largely virtual worlds, is all about experiences.
Then you have crypto currency, which my best explanation of is the coins and virtual currencies you might be used to earning in video games, only they’re tied to a real market value and actual financial markets and exchanges which gives them real world value. Crypto can be exchanged for actual dollars.
When we talk crypto we’re talking about Bitcoin or Ethereum … those are two the largest cryptocurrencies. But, there are hundreds. You can even sign up for your own personalized cryptocurrency and dole it out to people as a reward. Yes, it costs real money to have some crypto money. But the volatility of the crypto market means you could see the value of, say $100 in crypto one day, suddenly be several hundred the next day.
There’s no guarantee, of course. And that value can also go the other way, too. For the record, I have invested exactly $50 in cryptocurrency to date. It is currently valued at about $28. So I’m not convinced.
And then there’s NFTs. Just the thought of that gives me a headache. And I’m not the only one.
Which is exactly why Joseph Jaffe is here today. Frankly, it’s why Joseph Jaffe exists. He is a forward-thinker. An innovator. A change agent. He wrote a book called Join the Conversation before brands were echoing that mantra about social media.
And he’s at it again. Jaffe has pulled together a collection of Web 3.0 thinkers into a new premium community called the Alpha Collective. It’s a limited-capacity, paid membership community that will feature weekly lectures to help members wrap their heads around succeeding in Web 3.0 business and technology.
But each member will have direct access to each of the speakers and other experts in the community for networking Q&A, potential consulting and the like.
The name Alpha Collective implies you’ll get to see things before anyone else. And that’s the point. If you or your business wants to be on the forefront of Web 3.0 success, whether you’re a brand or an influencer, you should pay close attention today.
