In discussions on the increasingly important Metaverse a relatively new term has become broad: web3. Defined by Elon Musk as a \’word for marketing \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ But what exactly is it and what is the difference from our current web2 or Web 2.0?
What are its characteristics? The foundation on artificial intelligence, the expansion of AR/VR-based immersion, the decentralization given by blockchain and cryptocurrencies and, finally, greater transparency and omnipresence of the network and its contents.
The differences between Web3 and Web2 are therefore already evident:
Web 2.0 is purely social, while the third generation focuses on the interconnections between online resources to bring out significant content and relevant resources in an intuitive way; Web 3.0 is decentralized, ergo not governed by a Big Tech oligopoly,
In short, Web3 represents a revolution in progress. When will it be completed? No one knows, but the first steps have already been taken and now we are continuing towards its achievement.
