Manage episode 331244531 series 2536990
On this episode of the Digital Jamaica Podcast I had an illuminating conversation with David Palmer, Blockchain Lead for IoT at Vodafone Business a British based multinational telecommunications company.
David and I connected on LinkedIn because of our shared interest in preparing young Jamaicans for the Future of Work. David firmly believes that there are a lot of opportunities in the web 3 space that can bring social mobility, career opportunities and wider productivity to young Jamaicans.
David wants to expand our imagination as to what the future of work can look like, it’s not just about being employable, but thinks that young people should not have to be dependent on fan employer but rather by harnessing the potential of web3 technologies like blockchain, NFTs and the emerging metaverse young professionals can create opportunities for themselves.
Enterprising young people in Jamaica with innovative business ideas can collaborate globally by forming digital identities, virtual bank accounts and pooling wallets to create a virtual business and bank account which can be used for one or more business transactions.
This is just one of the ways David feels web 3 technologies can be used for good.
