Web 3.0, Decentralization & Cryptography
In the beginning the web was a decentralized publishing platform for static, hyperlinked media, primarily for human consumption. In the second phase, which we are still in, the web has changed to being a series of dynamic and siloed application platforms for both human and machine participation, these platforms are centrally controlled networks where content and commerce are powered by members and user participation. In these sessions we will discuss how Blockchain technologies, advancements in P2P hypermedia, with roots in both p2p file sharing systems and content centric networking, can lead to a third phase of the web; a democratized and global distribution platform that breaks down walled gardens and puts content producers truly in charge of their business.
Discover how Blockchain Technology can benefit a wide spectrum of industries. Some applications we will cover include the impact of blockchains in the energy and utilities industry, the media industry, both from a production and distribution perspective, the telecom industry, healthcare, government and the public sector.
