better known as Third Wave of the InternetWeb 3.0 is built on three main pillars: decentralization – independence from banks, government agencies, demographic boundaries or company technologies; privacy – prevention of disclosure of personal data; and virtualization — translated by the empowerment of digital worlds and the virtual reproduction of realistic experiences.
This new era is being built with the help of innovative technologies, primarily blockchain, that allow the passage of data chains in a secure, anonymous and independent manner. In addition, the development of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies made the metaverse emerge stronglya virtual and shared space that aims to replicate reality through digital devices.
For example, VR glasses will enable real immersion in three-dimensional worlds to watch sporting events as if we were in a stadium. Be able to perform chemical experiments that can be dangerous if done in a real laboratory; consumers will test their driving vehicles without going to the dealer. It’s incredible, isn’t it?
The question that arises is whether Brazil is actually ready to navigate this new world of possibilities.
The answer lies in the need to make progress on key points. First of all it is necessary there are public policies that allow the link to expand. High tax burden on the telecom sector, misuse of sectoral funds, old antenna laws and theft of communication cables are some of the factors that delay the digitization of the country significantly.
In this sense, there is no time to waste. More than optimizing the virtual experience, metaverses should move the world economy with great intensity. Companies from all industries are transitioning to a digitized economy.
This will also affect working relationships. Legislation on rights, crimes and other regulations also needs to be changed to embrace these new connected worlds.
After all, how to innovate with the advent of Web 3.0?
As the innovation ecosystem works to make the metaverse and Web 3.0 a reality in the years to come, there are several challenges to overcome. Among these is the understanding that public policies are not at the same pace as technology advances.
In addition, much more investment and training will be required on behalf of companies and the public sector. There’s no point in offering ultra speed if kids and teachers don’t have the minimum skills to unlock their potential. According to the International Telecommunication Union, only 20% of the Brazilian population have basic information and communication technology skills. Very little!
In this disruptive and nascent industry, it is still impossible to imagine what all possible applications will be. But what is known is that it definitely depends on excellent connectivity and a solid technological infrastructure that can provide all the computing power, storage and bandwidth will be required to provide a decent experience.

In today’s economy, the advantages of 5G are on the way to becoming indispensable like broadband massification. In Web 3.0, as Internet users will become increasingly responsible for their data and assets, governments and various sectors of the economy will need to remove bottlenecks and invest heavily in research and education.
Brazil still I am not ready and again runs the risk of being late for the next technological wave. So, what do you think about the arrival of 5G in Brazil and Web 3.0?
