The following is an excerpt from Becker's Healthcare.
Web3 is touted as an inevitable game changer for the internet by advocates, while others think it's a overhyped project with impossible barriers to mount.
This new, decentralized and blockchain backed version of the internet is worth talking about, according to a May 10 Harvard Business Review article.
Web3 is a shorthand for the project that aims to change the internet by using blockchain to disrupt how information is stored, shared and owned.
In theory it could break the monopolies of a select few companies who control information.
In a Web3 internet, users won't need separate logins for every site but instead will probably have a centralized identity, they will also be able to earn or buy tokens that could allow them to vote on decisions on a site or unlock some functionality.
Whether customers will be able to adapt to this more decentralized version of the internet or even like it remains to be seen.
