What is Web3? The Definition of Web 3.0

Defining Web3 Cryptocurrencies, NFTs (nonfungible tokens), blockchain, DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations), the metaverse, decentralized finance (DeFI), decentralized application (DApp). Buzzwords, yes, but they also represent important trends that are shaping the next iteration of the Web, aka Web3, aka Web 3.0.

Web3 sets the stage for challenger and legacy businesses to create new economic value and transform consumers into investors

Beyond the hype, Web 3.0 is creating opportunities for incumbent and emerging businesses to reimagine operational models and products/assets that are open, collaborative, and collective. The same could also be true for governments. The difference with Web3 and previous incarnations of internet protocols models is that platforms are decentralized, open and ubiquitous, connected by trustless networks, and powered by encrypted, accountable distributed ledgers. Think Facebook or Google owning and monetizing content and data versus users. In these applications, user engagement and attention…

Combined, everything sets the stage for disruption and…

With LifeSCALE in full swing plus big life changes I was working on at the time, oh yeah, and then…
