Web3 has been talked about as the decentralized version of the internet. This new state has the potential for users to prove ownership and control their data over the internet instead of centralised entities. This can bring exciting opportunities for interaction, connectivity, security, and new challenges that must be highlighted.

This talk will cover what web3 is, how we have reached this point, and how blockchain plays a pivotal role in the movement toward web3.

We will discuss the current usage of the movement to a web3 world, the future of the internet, and the challenges that threaten this change.
