Web3

Web3 is a new stack of technologies for the development of decentralized web applications that enable users to control their own identity and data. These technologies include blockchain as a trust verification mechanism, privacy-preserving and interoperability protocols, decentralized infrastructure and application platforms, decentralized identity, and support for applications like decentralized finance. These will eventually realize the vision of a decentralized web.
