Good morning! One of the hottest tech buzzwords at the moment is “Web3.” As with many trendy bits of terminology, it isn’t necessarily instantly clear what it means. In this case, it pulls together several ideas relating to using technologies such as the blockchain to create a more decentralized internet—and that ties it to another buzzword du jour, the metaverse. Mark Sullivan takes a look at the concepts behind the hype and explains how Web3—in a best-case scenario, at least—could be a boon to all of us.
