Top 10 Myths about Web3 that you know are wrong!!

As we hurtle towards a more decentralized digital future, the term “Web3” is rapidly gaining traction, representing the next evolutionary phase of the internet. By 2030, it’s expected that Web3 will have reached a worth of $81.5 billion. Yet, with progress comes misconceptions.  In this piece, we’ll debunk some of the most common myths surrounding Web3 and shed light on its transformative potential and we have a surprise coupon code for the greatest Web3 event at the end!!

What is Web3?

Web3 is the next internet generation, characterized by decentralized protocols and technologies. Unlike the current web, where platforms control user data, Web3 enables users to own and control their data, primarily powered by blockchain and decentralized networks. It promises a more open, permissionless, and user-centric online experience.

Where’s it used? 

Web3 emphasizes decentralized protocols and technologies like blockchain. Its primary use is to enable peer-to-peer transactions, smart contracts, and decentralized applications (DApps) without intermediaries. Most often, developers, tech enthusiasts, and innovators in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space build their projects on web3 and interact with DApps and other decentralized systems.

Dispelling 10 Myths of Web3

  1.  Web 3 is just a blockchain

While blockchain is a critical component of Web3, it is not synonymous with it. Web3 encompasses various technologies, including distributed file storage, decentralized applications (dApps), and peer-to-peer networking.

  1. Web 3 is only for cryptocurrencies

Cryptocurrencies are just one aspect of Web3. Projects on Web3 have numerous other use cases, such as decentralized finance (DeFi), supply chain management, digital identity management, Web3 Wallets, and decentralized social media platforms.

  1. Web 3 is not compatible with existing infrastructure

Many projects on Web3 are designed to work alongside existing technologies and platforms, enabling a seamless transition to a more decentralized web.

  1.  Web 3 is not regulated and is therefore unsafe

Governments and regulatory agencies are keenly aware of the evolving Web3 landscape and are taking steps to create a safer environment for users. For instance: The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has been adapting its recommendations to include virtual assets and related service providers to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing within the crypto space. 

  1. Web 3 is only for developers

Web3 aims to create a more user-centric internet, catering to users with varying technical skills. Several projects on Web3 have intuitive interfaces and do not require coding skills.
