14. Web 3.0 cryptos

Wednesday 2nd March 2022

Web 3.0 is the latest generation of the World Wide Web and its focus is on decentralization.

Web 1.0 was the first generation of the World Wide Web from the early 1990s to around 2004. During this stage, most websites were static. These websites were created by businesses and "consumed" by users like you and me.

Web 2.0 is the current second generation of the World Wide Web. A large amount of content is user-generated e.g. social media content, blogs, vlogs, etc. Most of this data is controlled and monetized by large companies like Google, and Meta (Facebook).

Web 3.0 is the latest generation of the World Wide Web and its focus is on decentralization. Web 3.0 applications and services would increasingly be powered by blockchains, crypto-assets (fungible and non-fungible), artificial intelligence, and metaverses.

Web 3.0 is expected to provide personalized content and also enable people to control their own data.
