Bali is currently the largest digital nomad hub in the world due to its unique combination of factors that attract remote workers worldwide, which – sometimes – lead to them giving up their life back home just to be in total freedom. This island is the kind of place where you could see yourself living long-term.
Bali provides a unique community for digital nomads that don’t exist in this form anywhere else in the world. It is a magnet for freelancers and those who took the chance to leave traditional society in favour of a life of spontaneity and independence. Remote work can sometimes be lonely. But that’s not the case when you are in Bali as you’re almost guaranteed to find like-minded people everywhere you go.
The lifestyle in Bali is made for the ex-pats, especially in Canggu. Co-working spaces are everywhere, popping up every month. CLICK HERE to see our recommendation for co-working spots in Bali!
A significant group of these digital nomads are mostly crypto-related. The crypto community in Bali is getting bigger and stronger. As the facilities are also improving, you can easily find crypto-minded people and events in Canggu, Ubud and Uluwatu. Having such facts, Bali is becoming a worldwide hub for web3.
The next generation of the internet is often categorised as web 3.0 or Web 3. The definition is that it is the third generation of evolutionary web technologies. To explain, the web and the World Wide Web are the starting base for how we use the internet, therefore providing websites and application services.
Web 3.0 integrates blockchain and cryptocurrency to develop a decentralised, which means that it is not governed and authorised by one single entity, but preferably by the users themselves. This is one of the key features of cryptocurrency.
The key features of web 3.0 are. It is open-source software, meaning the web 3.0 network is built alongside an open community of developers and is accessible to everyone. Therefore, it is trustable because it allows users to interact publicly or privately without the involvement of a third party. Lastly, because of the permission less, anyone, including users and developers, can participate without authorising any governance body. Whereas mobile phones, the cloud and social media contributed to the existing web 2.0, web 3.0 is further navigated by three new layers of technological innovations: edge computing, decentralised data network and artificial intelligence (AI).
