It looks like one of the next technological revolutions is on the cusp of becoming a ‘NORMALISED’ part of our lives.
In the ‘tech world’ one of the biggest trends in recent years has been the emergence of ‘the mature internet’ otherwise known as ‘web 3.0,’ or more formally referred to as Blockchain Technology.
In what was once an advancement left to the outskirts, and only the most technologically progressive individuals, Blockchain is fast becoming a more viable, ‘user friendly’ and a more effectively integrated platform that to the average consumer, is rather palatable.
Why should this be exciting?
Well “Blockchain technology will underpin the development of the Web 3.0 revolution because it provides highly effective, efficient and secure ways of managing data,’’ said Mr Lewinsmith Co-founder of Blockchain Collective, a partner of TAFE Queensland.
The new course known as ‘Diploma of Applied Blockchain,’ which is currently only offered at TAFE Queensland combats the demand for knowledge and education about blockchain technology.
Real-world applications of this technology will benefit NUMEROUS industries, with the arts, banking & business sector to be among the most affected.
Soon, using cryptocurrencies to buy assets will feel rather normal, and buying tickets to events will be done through the Blockchain as NFTs (non-fungible tokens), and valuable business information will also be secured on the Blockchain.
The fact there are now accreditations in Australia that can be diverted as a study loan from the government, should be an indication of just how imminent the implementation of this technology is to our world, and in Australia.
