Introduction

The technological world is witnessing a change in the way of things. The emergence of the internet was not without a cause. From the primitive age of the World Wide Web (web 1.0) to web 2.0 which is widely in use.

A simple conclusion is that there is an endless need to improve the web. The upsurge of the insatiable content need of internet users is at the forefront of all reasons. Web 1.0 was the ‘Read Only’ web that provided internet users with limited opportunities for interaction.

With the advent of web 2.0, communication became easier as internet users embrace the ‘read-write’ web which paved way for better interactions. However, there are limitations and restrictions to web 2.0, and since there is more than enough room for improvement, web 3.0 is set to take the stage.

What is Web 3.0?

Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of The World Wide Web, refers to Web 3.0 as The Semantic Web. Tim’s vision of a semantic web is a form of internet that is smarter, open to all, and highly intelligent. Web 3.0 is the next internet evolution stage, and it is set to outdo the features of the existing web 2.0.

The Possibilities of Web 3.0

The most important takeaway from web 3.0 is that it will be a form of a decentralized internet. By decentralization, users will embrace an open form of internet that offers limitless freedom and privacy regarding their views, data, and storage. Web 3.0 will not be controlled by any centralized corporations, as this is one of the known features of web 2.0. There will be no censorship regarding users’ accessibility to some part of the internet, as we witness with the current version of the web.

Web 3.0 stands as the ‘read-write-execute’ web. It is the future for the web’s Artificial Intelligence model that enables the ownership, creation, and sharing of content. It will pave way for easier generation of content in line with the specific needs of users.

Also, blockchain technology stands in the middle of web 3.0. Since web 3.0 is set to operate through a decentralized protocol, one cannot rule out the fact that one of the possibilities of web 3.0 is its integration with blockchain domain systems. This synergy will open doors to the decentralized feature of web 3.0. This will help in creating a censorship-resistant internet, an uncompromisable form of security, and users’ data protection.

In actualizing the goals of a decentralized web and the future of data protection, NexBloc stands as one of the leading entities building the next generation of the internet with blockchain domain name system. The aim is to create a decentralized web and build a form of internet that guarantees 100% personal data protection and censorship resistance.

Conclusion

Web 3.0 offers solutions to the limitations of web 2.0. As digital giants plan to embrace a decentralized web, folding one arm in anticipation might not be the best decision.
