Web3, the “third generation” of the Internet, promises a more secure and free structure.

In our web-dominated hyper-connected world, it’s hard to imagine any pundits saying that the internet will need a “massive overhaul.”

However, it is this omnipresence that is driving more and more tech people to work on what they call the “new phase” of the Internet.
