Web3 and Blockchain

With continuous technological innovation and the rise of blockchain applications, the Internet has entered the Web3 era as there are more and more Web 3.0 applications globally.

At the very beginning the Internet first appeared in 1991. The physical infrastructure of wires and servers enables computers and people using them to communicate with each other through the web. With the usage of Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), users can navigate between static pages and the read-only web is known as Web1.

In the Web2 era, Web 2.0 applications have expanded users’ ability to share, watch, learn, search, and communicate interactively.

Now, data networks under the framework of Web 3.0 make it possible for data generators to sell or exchange their data without losing ownership control, giving up privacy, or relying on third-party intermediaries business based on the concept of decentralization.

With the contemporary applications of Web 3.0, decentralized finance (DeFi) contributes to the new ecosystem of FinTech. At the same time, financial innovations powered by blockchain technology, such as cryptocurrencies and smart contracts, bring further implications to the financial market.

This section will discuss the following:

1. Decentralized Applications (DApps)

2. Decentralized Finance (DeFi)

3. Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs)

4. Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO)

5. Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC)

The talk will discover and explore Web 3.0. Welcome to join us.
