Why Mobile Cloud will help the Growth of Web 3.0?
Web 3.0 relates to a more data-driven and decentralized approach revolving around blockchain technology. Mobile Cloud Computing will help venture into the world of Web 3.0 and Metaverse in a more efficient manner.
As networking and connectivity continue evolving, we find ourselves slowly transitioning from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0. Technically, Web 3.0 is the latest form of the World Wide Web that focuses more on decentralization, a machine-based learning approach, and unrestricted or ungoverned access to the semantic web.
However, to a layman, Web 3.0 could simply be defined in the current environment as the web and its components based on blockchain technology. Web 3.0 is also designed to reduce the need for trust in order to gain access, which can be seen currently on most websites through the OAuth signatures.
Web 3.0 and Cloud Computing
Even in its early stages, Web 3.0 is already changing the face of computing by enabling users to tap into software and services stored in data centers rather than on a user’s device, a model widely known in IT circles as cloud computing.
Cloud computing shifts the burden of storage from a user’s device to a cloud server, which makes sense as to why this concept is heavily discussed when talking about Web 3.0. Shifting all burden of files to a cloud server is the first step towards bringing the concept of Web 3.0 to life, where everything will eventually be decentralized and there would be more open centers to access information and files through blockchain.
The current world environment has already adopted the concept of cloud computing, with services like Google Drive and Spotify being the most popular and publicly accessible ones. These applications allow users access to a cloud where information can be stored and shared in a much easier and smoother way. The next step would of course be web 3.0, where the stored information would move from the centralized cloud servers to the decentralized blockchain.
Now imagine if your executable files and every other necessary information could also be accessed through the cloud; that is where we aim to be with the help of mobile cloud computing in the world of Web 3.0.
Also, Web 3.0 is about handing over the control, the onus of trust, and privacy to the user when interacting with the internet. Mobile computing can aid the same with the concept of users not only being able to play their favorite games at the click of a link but also removing device hindrances from the equation to a large extent.
Building on the Blockchain and Capitalizing on NFTs
With the entrance of blockchain technology, your property can be digitally signed on the Web, making it more secure compared to the free-flowing data right now. This makes it less susceptible to threats of theft of property among other concepts.
The concept of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) is based on this, where each digital property is signed with a specific code that belongs on the blockchain of a specific cryptocurrency. This acts as proof of ownership without any need to have physical documentation of the same. Since the NFTs are linked to your specific account, the threat of theft is mitigated by a large amount.
The now.gg cloud computing system not only enables gaming on the cloud but also builds on the concept of NFTs, with its own NFT marketplace where users can easily access, view and trade NFTs without much hassle.
Moving into the Metaverse
The gradual advent and adoption of the Metaverse will also be aided by the cloud computing model. Metaverse embodies the ultimate shift of life from physical to digital in its most complete form yet and cloud computing will help achieve that in a much smoother manner, acting as a bridge between the current atmosphere and the future but also as a means to remove physical annotations as much as possible.
Your entire property and information in the Metaverse can be stored in a single place with the help of cloud computing, which is linked directly to logging into your related account. An example of this could be the NFGs (now.gg fungible games) available now.gg wherein users can continue to make MODs of their favorite games, creating their own multiverse of MODs, a MODverse in a sense.
Celebrating User Generated Content
As developers continue to offer more and more choices to users in order to reap the benefits of the community, user-generated content has become pivotal. Communities have salvaged and extended the life of several games, with Skyrim, Minecraft, Roblox, and Among Us being successful examples of the same. Then there are certain games based on sports where licensing prevents them from giving users the full experience. Community MODs mitigate those problems as well. Games in web 2.0 like Minecraft, Roblox, and MMORPGs like World of Warcraft had their own multiverse before the term became common practice in the world of technology.
Slowly, we are not only traversing into the field of actively incorporating user-generated content in a more inclusive manner in games but also towards providing more than just the ability to play the game. There was a mild shift, with newer games already embedding the option to use community-generated content within the game without having to download it.
These games were the precursor to the Metaverse we have today. With the world moving towards web 3.0, developers have now started shifting towards games based on blockchain technology, with titles like Axie Infinity and Decentraland offering more than just the gaming experience now. For example, Decentraland allows players to fully customize their bought Land to build the space of their dreams, with the In-World Builder now present to fulfill every criterion the user has. Users are at the heart of web 3.0 and user-generated content like this is just the precipice of what we will see as games continue to evolve.
