Oct 04, 2021 Blockchain


What is Web3.0? In a nutshell, Web3.0 is a more user-centric, transparent, and safe Internet that focuses on creating things with more humanization.

Before introducing Web3.0, let's take a look back at Web1.0 and Web2.0.


Web1.0: The beginning of the story

Ever heard that it took 200 years to get a dial-up connection and download a 5MB file? People mainly used the Internet to maintain basic communication in the era of Web1.0. Usually, you can only see the use of the Internet in large corporate offices. The number of websites is very small compared to today.

Yes, things weren't so great, but it was the beginning. The beginning of a new era of civilization. We call it the Internet Web1.0.

Web1.0 was a one-way street. Big companies created content for people to read, with little to no interaction. Users could only read the data, and only the content creators could edit and create the content. So, just like reading a book in a library, users were just consumers without many rights.

Then, plagiarism came along. People started copying other content and pasting it on their websites. The original content was so rare that even universities didn't trust the Internet, and looking up a simple piece of information required a trip to the library. Of course, there were no social media.


Web2.0: The social revolution

When Web2.0 emerged, end-users benefited tremendously. Users could write and read data, and people realized the severe limitations of a framework that could only handle a million users. Web2.0 could handle billions of users, because it had frameworks based on Ajax and JavaScript, and blogs replaced boring static web content.

Web2.0 also introduced video streaming and online games. Everything went live. Websites could be interactive and more dynamic which enables online stores to begin to rule the world economy.

You could say that it was a real revolution and the introduction of Web applications opened up new horizons.


Web3.0: The future Internet

1.Everything is connected

Looking around, we now have smart refrigerators, smart TVs, smart BMI scale, and home assistants like Alexa and Siri. All of these things can be connected to the Internet, and they form a network of devices called the Internet of Things (IoT).

The IoT is one of the biggest features of Web3.0, which aims to connect everything to the Internet. Currently, not all devices can be connected, and we don't have this infrastructure now, but with the development of 5G, this goal will be achieved shortly.


Web3.0 blockchain DApp is more user-centric which will exclude the middleman. We don't have to rely on huge data servers controlled by private companies, under which circumstances, our data will be more secure and private. With no centralized servers, all data will be spread between devices and people will be free to access them. It will create a more humane Internet world.

3.Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence will mainly focus on providing people with better analysis and results. Technology giants are already working on their AI projects, such as music or news recommended by AI that matches your taste.

In addition, you will find that when you search for a specific product on Google, the ads on your Facebook page will also change, and everything is interconnected. Therefore, the future of marketing strategy will no longer use mass marketing technology, but a human-centric strategy.

4.Semantic Web

The blockchain technology stack presents the topic called the Semantic Web. Semantic Web means a way to understand Web content, just like human behavior, which is associated with machine learning and artificial intelligence, trying to teach computers to understand data and how they behave. In semantic search, search results will be more accurate and relevant. Web2.0 relies on keywords, page permissions, and domain permissions to rank content, but Web3.0 browsers try to understand Web content like a human.

5.3D images and the future of content

There is no doubt that today's web content is more graphic, and people like to see and share videos and images rather than simple text. Soon, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) will become popular, and different applications and games will have more realistic graphics and sensations. In addition, 3D printing will not be limited to laboratory use, people will use 3D printing more and it will become more available and cheaper.

Web3.0 will reshape our Internet world, and more possibility is beyond imagination.
