Web 3.0

Web 3.0 refers to the next generation of the internet, which aims to be more decentralized, open and intelligent. It is built on decentralized technologies such as blockchain and peer-to-peer networks, and it aims to create a more open and transparent internet, where users have more control over their data and are able to interact with each other directly, without the need for intermediaries.

Web 3.0 applications and platforms are often powered by decentralized systems like blockchain DeFi, which allows for the creation of decentralized applications (dApps) that can run on a blockchain network. These dApps are open-source, trustless, and can be built on top of smart contracts.

Some examples of Web 3.0 applications include decentralized social networks, metaverse, marketplaces, and storage solutions.
