The New Generation of Athletes
In nature, scientists have observed organisms of various complexities to adapt to their respective environments to enhance their chances of survival. Similarly, people, businesses, and even countries also compete for the spot of the apex. This pattern can be observed throughout various fields and stages of life and the sports industry is no different. These days, however, a key element of evolving is technological advancement. It is important to note that as information and technology progresses, so do the other industries evolve with it as a by-product. For example, a business might consider replacing menial jobs with AI or automation. Or athletes with the aid of sports scientists/coaches will use strategies and equipment to gain an edge in competitions.
That being said, it is evident that the next generation of athletes will be a lot more tech-savvy than those before them as they would have essentially grown up with phones, tablets, computers, and other devices. It has become an integral part of their lives. Using it for more than just to keep in touch with peers, they may also utilize their electronics for leisure (gaming, browsing social media platforms, surfing the web), for tracking data (heartbeat rate, timing performance, videotaping), and much more. Having such extensive exposure at such a young age opened up many possibilities for technology to infiltrate the sports industry as the next generation of athletes ought to be more accepting. It is also noteworthy that the trend is shifting to where an athlete may complete his or her training for the day and engage in gaming on their smartphone or get home to engage in the cyber world to blow off steam.
That is what makes DefiSports’ vision compatible with the changing tides. The new generation will considerably benefit from the transparency of the world’s first sports blockchain as it records all irrefutable data and statistics on the EcoTrack feature. It would triumph corruption and human error. Not to mention, the transparency will hinder intermediaries from taking a cut of the athlete’s earnings. Moreover, DefiSports will also be integrating Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality as well as Artificial Intelligence into the sports industry allowing fans and viewers to have a 3-dimensional metaverse from the comfort of their homes. From the 3-D surround system to the ultra-high-definition graphics, it will be a one-of-a-kind experience never before witnessed. Finally, the advantage of subduing gender/race inequitable pay.
Clearly, as the mindset, traits, and idiosyncrasy evolve of the upcoming generation of athletes, DefiSports has positioned itself in the best possible way to facilitate them and leave a positive footprint for all to benefit and grow from! Thank you for reading.
