“Lumos Labs was built with a vision of bringing blockchain technology to the forefront for developers and founders. Over the years, we have run multiple programs with over 40 Web3 partners while building a strong community of developers to achieve that goal. With the transition to the Metaverse, we are now striving further to strengthen and enable Web3 developers as they access several global opportunities, incentives, and knowledge on a single dedicated platform.” said Kaavya Prasad, founder, Lumos Labs.
The Web3 space is driving the next wave of innovation, with the Global Blockchain Market expected to grow at a rate of 45 percent to reach USD 34 billion by 2026. However, the two big roadblocks that the ecosystem faces in its growth trajectory include the availability of proficient Web3 developers and the need for an organised, chain agnostic platform to aggregate and allow developers to upskill.
The Lumos Metaverse addresses the challenge by bringing all the leading players in the Web3 ecosystem under one umbrella. It allows developers to explore different opportunities from these chains and foundations and leverage different programs to hone their Web3 skills. The Lumos Metaverse creates a world where developers can interact, engage, build, and work within one holistic system.
The Metaverse will be an interactive platform for budding developers, entrepreneurs, and Web3 firms that will facilitate authenticated developer profiles, Web3 learning and hiring opportunities and provide frequent incentives to developers as they upgrade their skills.
