Everything about Web3; Web3 simplified
Web3 or the decentralized internet is the third generation internet which was a big revolution to the world of technology.
Web 3.0 is somehow similar to Web 2.0 (with some basic differences) and has the same use of apps, sites and social media with the difference of decentralization. Got confused? No need to worry. In this article Bonti has simplified Web 3.0 for you. Stay tuned.
Centralized internet; Where are servers?
The Internet hosts millions of apps and sites. These sites and applications are easily accessible with some clicks from a device like your phone, laptop, smart TV and so on.
These sites and applications for storing the data (no matter what it is) need a place to save and keep them; that place is called “Server”. Server (which apparently is another computer) is a location to store data of whatever is needed to be stored on the internet.
Mostly sites and applications due to supporting millions of members daily, need more space and servers that are usually distributed to be able to run their services.
By what we said above, if you want to run your own site or application, you may need one or more (based on your business) servers to store the data. Possibly you have two choices; whether creating your own server or trying to rent servers from companies which provide such services. Here is when giant technology companies like Google, Microsoft and Amazon come into the game.
By a small calculation, renting servers from the providers seems more economical than having your own server. These suppliers usually have lots of farms (where servers are kept) distributed in different parts of the world which makes storing data for companies in whatever the country is so simple.
But at the very end, it doesn’t matter whether you have your own server or have rented one, they are the ones who have the control on your data and personal information; Even if you have distributed your data among a lot of servers worldwide.
This is the core function of the internet from the day of its birth. In Web 2.0 and Web 1.0, The final control and management is by the giant technology companies, governments and some Wall Street companies.
They are the centralized powers who validate your identity, transactions, qualification of your content published and even your access to the internet. But Web 3.0 is moving forward to a smarter, better version of the internet; Decentralization!
What is Web 3.0?
Web 3.0 still needs servers to store data. But this time servers are not centralized. They are decentralized computers called nodes distributed in a network where information is not stored only on one server but on all of them at the same time so there would be no central power managing and controlling the whole data.
In other words, The whole network is controlled by the members and there would be no chance for anyone to tamper with the data; because there is the same record of information on each member computer so they have the access to the right data and any change would be recognizable.
Blockchain is a revolution happened by the rise of web 3.0 which in an article separately we have talked about that you can read in here.
Pros of Web 3.0
- Censor resistance
- Secured Information
The Internet itself was a big revolution to the world of technology. But Web 3.0 has totally changed everything by decentralizing the way data is stored. It is more secure and faster than its conventional way. Why shouldn’t it be lovesome?
Is there an article written about how to invest in web 3.0?
Dear Alisa. Web 3.0 is not a platform to invest in, It’s an environment required for blockchain-based technologies to be presented. So for investment, you may need to invest in web 3.0 projects.
Are there any threats to blockchain security?
Thanks mr.Smith. These new technologies are at their early stages and that’s normal to be threatened due to their incomplete infrastructures.
Would you please make a web 3.0 crypto coins list?
Thanks John for sharing your idea with us. It will be available in the future.
