Looking back to 2021, both Web 3.0 and metaverse are among the top 10 technology hot words.
Recently, Takaaki Ansai, CEO of the metaverse infrastructure platform Ethanim, expressed his views on Web3.0 and metaverse, “Compared to the Web 1.0 and Web 2.0, the changes brought by Web 3.0 will be disruptive. The development of blockchain technology provides technical support for the application of Web 3.0. Web 3.0 will bring a transparent and credible Internet economic model, achieve a breakthrough in production relations and make users be the real masters of the Internet. The characteristics of Web 3.0 will give endless imagination to the metaverse and make metaverse applications more colorful.
Looking back to 2021, both Web 3.0 and metaverse are among the top 10 technology hot words. While Web 3.0 is not clearly defined, its own characteristics are already considered to be the next era of the Internet: a decentralized network running on the blockchain. In fact, the concept of Web 3.0 was proposed by Dale Dougherty, vice president of an American computer information book publishing company O’Reilly Media, as early as 2001. Later, it was promoted and developed by Tim Berners-Lee, the father of the World-Wide Web.
Until 2014, the concept of Web 3.0 related to blockchain technology was reintroduced by Gavin Wood, the co-founder of Ethernet. Last year, under the upsurge of metaverse, Web 3.0 received more and more attention and its related projects rose rapidly with the support of many funds. At present, the industry applications based on Web 3.0 cover a wide range of fields such as finance, games, collaboration, and social networking.
“The reason why Web3.0 has exploded in the last two years is mainly because of the development of blockchain technology. Web3.0 runs based on a decentralized system. The blockchain technology in distributed storage, decentralization, information encryption, tokenization of data rights and other characteristics, not only solves the security risks of data structure transmission but also solves the problems of user data privacy and data right confirmation.” Takaaki Ansai said. “Web 3.0 will break the data monopoly of traditional Internet giants and return the ownership of user data to users. This model provides an incentive for everyone to participate in the development of the Internet and receive the corresponding rewards. Ethanim‘s core component, the Reliable State Machine (RSM), also adopts this model. Any node user is allowed to participate in the trusted state validation of RSM, protect the Ethanim metaverse ecological security and receive node validation rewards.”
In terms of industry characteristics, Web 3.0 must be open, secure, decentralized. And the corresponding application must have the native tokens. Only the applications based on the above characteristics of Web3.0 can promote the protection of their own data and rights, let the Internet production of content and data belong to the user, and let the users participate in the control. The native token profit produced by the use of data belongs to the user so that the user in the new Internet era is both the builder and the beneficiary.
“The changes brought by Web 3.0 will not only change the profit model of the traditional Internet but also change social collaboration and social governance. Users are free to give the created content to Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) management and free to participate in the organizational collaboration. This model can be very widely used in the metaverse,” Takaaki Ansai said. “The combination of Web 3.0 and metaverse can stimulate users to participate in the construction of metaverse content and contribute to the sustainable development of metaverse ecology. In addition, it can also realize the parallel traversal of multidimensional space and allow users to experience a more exciting virtual digital world.”
It is understood that the RSM system of the Ethanim metaverse network introduces the Web 3.0 mechanism from multiple dimensions. RSM supports users to extract application images for redeployment with one click. Users can use RSM to quickly build independent forked versions for games like making game mods, realizing Web3.0 ecology that can be edited and customized and deployed by everyone. Meanwhile, RSM will mark the source of the new forked version with the original version. The forked version will continue to bring revenue sharing for the developers of the original version, and protect the rights of creators. It lays the foundation for the economic operation of long-term healthy development of Web 3.0.
At present, both technical support and market demand provide many favorable conditions for the development of Web 3.0, which also attract many funds to invest in Web 3.0-related projects. Web 3.0 shows a booming trend. Next, Web 3.0 will create a new global digital economy, spawn new business models and market economies, and generate a large number of bottom-up innovations. It will lead everyone one step closer to an Internet world of “efficiency, fairness, trustworthiness and value”.
