A few months ago some content was announced: NFTs, Metaverse and Web 3.0. For the first two, I have already talked in the previous comments. Today, I want to talk about Web 3.0 thing. Much more than the word buzz, this is going to be one of the most important tech ideas of the decade.

If there is Web 3.0, it is important, then, that we translate both Webs ago. Web 1.0 has static pages as its main theme, born first e-business and accessed by browsers from desktops. It also marks the birth (or growth) of companies such as Amazon, Apple and Netscape and is responsible for bringing millions of people into this new world called the Internet – which three years ago is still a difficult concept for many people to understand.

Web 2.0 was born in 1999 and 2004. According to Web 1.0 (Page Estaticas; e-business; Browsers and Desktops), Web 2.0 has three main pillars for its birth and development: Social Networks; Mobile; Cloud count. Social Networks has led the level of interaction of users without thinking in Web 2.0. The revolution Mobile makes us carry computers in our pockets, making our time very connected. Finally, Cloud Computing has simplified and streamlined the design, development and customization of applications. Here, social networks like Facebook, YouTube and Instagram; platforms such as App Store and Play Store; and big cloud like Amazon Web Services as a market leader.

We are entering, therefore, the forefront of the Internet. This, like the previous two, has 3 characteristics: Open; Reliability; Not allowed.

  • “Open” means that Web 3.0 is being developed by open source software, developed by an open community of developers. Advanced technologies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, for example, were developed from open source.
  • Web 3.0 is “Trusted” in the sense that the network itself can be explored and allow users to interact with whatever they want – public or private.
  • not allowed means that users will be able to participate in the new platform and use the new process without the need for permission to do so.

All of this may sound a little too much, but it has already happened. In most applications, by far the spotlight, in what I called “Silent Revolutions” in previous papers. There is still a lot of noise, of course, but the policies and companies that will be the leaders in the digital space 10 years from now are now established. If you want to be a part of it, start reading about Blockchain, NFTs, crypto, DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations) and will be ahead of everyone’s practice. Web 3.0 is already here and will gain more and more space.
