What is emerging technology?

Emerging technology is any new technology or tech product & service that is being developed, tested, or improved. Some examples of emerging technologies include blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Due to the immense revolutionary potential of emerging tech to disrupt and create industries, many investors, companies, and consumers are excited about their potential to change the world.

As a company focused on the emerging tech areas of blockchain and Web3, EMURGO firmly believes in the potential for Cardano’s decentralized and research-driven blockchain technology to transform the current Web2 landscape dominated by centralized tech companies. To realize this potential, EMURGO builds Web3 products and services and invests in Cardano’s ecosystem.

Learning about emerging tech is essential because technology relentlessly advances at a rapid pace to provide better living and working conditions to everyone. It also handsomely rewards those who provide such products and services. Businesses that fail to keep up with new technological trends and development risk falling behind and losing consumers. By staying up-to-date on emerging technologies, businesses can identify new opportunities to improve their products and services, gain commercial profit, and competitive business advantages. Likewise, individuals who also have knowledge of emerging tech have a much greater chance of getting jobs and higher salaries in high-growth industries such as blockchain.

Blockchain is one of the fastest-growing emerging technologies

Emerging tech is already shaping various industries. In particular, blockchain technology has the potential to “enhance around 40 million jobs globally” and “add $1.76 trillion to the global economy” by 2030 according to global professional services firm PwC’s “Time for Trust” report.

Blockchain and its decentralized, user-centric ethos are increasingly changing the way consumers conduct financial transactions, store financial value, create digital property, and much more in a widely accessible P2P manner through cryptocurrencies and applications for decentralized finance (DeFi), and NFTs, among others.

Use cases for blockchain include not only financial applications, but also supply chain, certification, compliance, healthcare, information, and others, highlighting blockchain’s vast potential to transform industries and create new businesses and jobs.

The World Economic Forum cites a report stating “61% of companies ranking digital transformation as a top priority” and that “blockchain is becoming an essential technology.”

Such potential brings a lot of capital into a rapidly growing sector which presents many career opportunities for those looking to start or switch careers into blockchain. Careers in blockchain include developers, marketing professionals, business development, product managers, legal counsels, and more.
