Recently, you might have heard the term – Web3 or Web 3.0 a lot on the Internet. 

In simpler terms, it refers to the next generation of the web that promotes decentralised protocols and seeks to reduce dependency on large tech companies like Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon. 

A refresher..!

Well, over time, the web has changed a lot! And so far, we can divide the web into three categories:  

Web 1.0 (1991 to 2004) – The first version of Web, built on open protocols. Experts call it a ‘Read-only’ web. 

Web 2.0 (2004 to present) – The lack of interaction among the common users has pushed the birth of Web 2.0. It is the internet most of us know today. It is a read-write web, where common users can contribute content and interact with other web users. This has dramatically changed the landscape and a few remarkable developments of Web 2.0 are YouTube, Twitter, Amazon, and Facebook. 

Web 3.0 – We are now in the early stages of Web 3.0. The term was coined in 2014 by Ethereum co-founder Gavin Wood. 

What is Web 3.0?

According to the Wikipedia definition, “Web3 is an idea for a new iteration of the World Wide Web-based on the blockchain, which incorporates concepts including decentralization and token-based economics.”

The Web3 community is growing exponentially across the globe as numerous startups have started adopting it. Based out of Helsinki, Kleoverse is one such startup that’s building the platform of work in Web3.

Kleoverse raises $1.2M

Recently, the Finnish company has raised $1.2M in funding led by byFounders, Sfermion, and angel investors such as crypto entrepreneur Ville Vesterinen, and Equilibrium, a leading global blockchain agency.

The capital will enable Kleoverse to fund further R&D in the platform, scale its user base, and build its global community of Web3 builders and developers.

“We believe the current ways for talent signaling are inadequate and old-fashioned for our increasingly digital world. There are three major problems in the current status quo of the job-seeking market: 1) Status measures the past, not the future, 2) Status signals are indirect, thus unreliable, 3) People are treated unequally,” says Aleksi Löytynoja, Co-Founder of Kleoverse.

What does Kleoverse do?

Founded by Aleksi Löytynoja and Joni Karras, the Finnish company has developed a new way to help talent find jobs at DAOs on Web3.

Using Blockchain, Kleoverse hands out NFTs to visualize an individual’s Web3 Proof-of-Talent based on the projects they’ve completed with Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs). To simply put, the company develops a CV in the form of NFTs. 

The platform replaces the need for old-fashioned CVs that don’t give a realistic image of the candidate’s experience and skills.

To refresh, a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) is an entity with no central leadership.

“We want to change that by sharing step-by-step guides on how to join any DAO of choice and by building new means for showcasing Proof-of-Talent (PoT) based on your completed work on the web,” continues Löytynoja.

A vast amount of opportunities

Kleovese says DAOs offer a vast sphere of different opportunities for many kinds of contributors and don’t have rules and regulations like offices, mandatory working hours, corporate politics, etc. 

Individuals can work on their terms, contributing to as many organisations as they want, collecting governance tokens and NFTs as rewards for their work.

Currently, the DAO number is growing rapidly, it is hard to stay updated on all the latest projects. And Kleoverse’s Discovery platform is a single source of all DAOs and open Web3 projects on the web

Often, DAOs run bounties or similar simple tasks for onboarding new people to their communities. 

Those wanting to dive deeper can take on further tasks, gradually joining a working group or becoming a core contributor. 

“Some may even apply for a grant to build a project or an individual product that supports the ecosystem,” says the company in the press release. 

To date, Kleoverse has over 100 DAOs on its platform and a few dozen projects hosted already by the time of its launch, with over 1,000 users signed up to its platform.

“Kleoverse revolutionizes how people measure and discover talent in the online-native world. Web3 and DAOs act as a perfect environment for this. Permissionless projects and professional portfolios based on actions recorded on blockchain are the first steps towards a more equal, transparent, and remote-first world,” says Joni Karras, Co-Founder of Kleoverse.
