What are Web2 and Web3?

Web2 refers to the current iteration of the internet, characterized by user-generated content, interactivity, and social features. It’s the web you’re probably familiar with – think social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, YouTube channels, online shopping sites, and even Wikipedia.

Web3 is a proposed new phase of the internet that revolves around decentralization. This means that data and control would be spread out across a network of computers instead of being held by a small number of big companies like Google or Facebook. Example of Web3: Web3 browsers, Cryptocurrency, DeFi, Metaverse, Real World Assets Tokenization, Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Network etc.
